Foreign fighters flood into Afghanistan

HUNDREDS of foreign Islamic fighters are gathering in Afghanistan ahead of the deployment of 4,000 British troops to the country in the spring.




The fighters, including Jordanians, Yemenis, Egyptians and Gulf Arabs, stepped up their campaign two months ago with a series of suicide bombings against NATO peacekeepers, United States troops and Afghan government leaders.

"Attacks in Afghanistan are now running at more than 500 a month - it's getting as dangerous for westerners as Iraq in some places," said a British officer involved in planning the NATO peacekeeping mission in the south-west of the country.

I love how these Liberals report this story. Notice how they lable them as "Fighters"? They are terrorists!!! Suicide bombings?! Hello?!!! McFly?!!! They are not true fights. They blow themselves up including whoever is near by. They are spineless wimps who can't solve their problems except by killing themselves. Come on! What moron has such a worthless life as to agree to end it by blowing themselves up. That's just how messed up these terrorists are. They think committing suicide is a good thing. Brainwashed!

woo hoo , Jeanie ...

Have you been to Afghanstan ? have you interviewed the people crossing the border or are you just speaking out the back of your head

what is the difference between a terrorist and a freedom fighter

hmmm
you see Luis Posada Carriles Is a Terrorist but he was working for you so that does not count

I thought Mr Bush said 'you are either with us or your with the terrorists' well Luis here is wanted for terrorism and for some reason you have refused to let him stand trial for his crimes

so either


the bombing of a Cuban commercial airliner over Barbados in which all 73 people aboard died. is not terrorism and if that is not terrorism then what is ?

or

your government harbours terrorists and using Mr Bush's own words he has told us by his action which side he is on

A terrorist is one who carries out acts of terror, the Contras in Latin America for example. And what is terror? The threat or use of violence to coerce (much like threatening to attack another nation, if you can think of any country that's ever done that). I "fighter" would be one who follows the Geneva Conventions and does not carry out acts of terror as defined above.

"What moron has such a worthless life as to agree to end it by blowing themselves up."

Good question. I see that you have not read the most important study ever carried out on suicide terrorism: Robert A. Pape's Dying to Win. I suggest you pick it up before you embarrass yourself any further.
