KABUL, Afghanistan - Insurgents beheaded 17 civilians in a Taliban-controlled area of southern Afghanistan, apparently because they attended a dance party that flouted the extreme brand of Islam embraced by the militants, officials said Monday.
The killings, in a district where U.S. Marines have battled the Taliban for years, were a reminder of how much power the insurgent group still wields in the south - particularly as international forces draw down and hand areas over to Afghan forces.
The victims were part of a large group that had gathered late Sunday in Helmand province's Musa Qala district for a celebration involving music and dancing, said district government chief Neyamatullah Khan. He said the Taliban slaughtered them to show their disapproval of the event.
All of the bodies were decapitated but it was not clear if they had been shot first, said provincial government spokesman Daoud Ahmadi.
Many Afghans and international observers have expressed worries that the Taliban's brutal interpretation of Islamic justice will return as international forces withdraw. Under the Taliban, who ruled the country from 1996 to 2001, all music and film was banned as un-Islamic, and women were barred from leaving their homes without a male family member as an escort.
Helmand is one of the areas seeing the largest reduction in U.S. troops, as the force increase ordered up by President Barack Obama departs. The U.S. started drawing down forces from a peak of nearly 103,000 last year, and plans to have decreased to 68,000 troops in country by October.

Remove our troops then cleanse that shithole by turning up the temperature to about 5000 degrees.
I am so sick of these subhumans.
Screwhead Primates Gone Wild XVIII! This is why Curtis LeMay made B-52s.
The strangest part of this is they were celebrating BO’s victory.
Talk about a conundrum
The ‘serfs’ here were just ‘losing their heads’ in joy, they didn’t go the extra nine yards....
I blame Romney/s
What angers me to no end is NOW and all these sacred bleeding hearts NEVER speak of this crap, never speak of the acid baths and rapes and beatings and "disHONOR killings." Noooo it's all tolerance and shar'ia law and cultural diversity the spineless idiots.
nope, even when it happens in this Country by the ROP
You nailed it. The libs care only about what’s between a woman’s legs. They don’t care about the whole woman at all. They don’t care about her very LIFE.
To be fair, maybe they were executed for their wide lapels and bell-bottoms.
They celebrate now (code pinkies and feminists) the very thing they were ticked off about (on of many), looking at women just as “objects” and “body parts”.
Can they even see their own hypocrisy or do they even care?

I wonder if they were dancing to the Bruce Springsteen song
“Dancing in the dark”
They don't even care about that because if they did they would be outraged over female genital mutilation. What they really care about is murdering their own babies and not having any guilt for it.
I’ll bet no one gets beheaded for attending dance parties there where boys dance around dressed as girls.
and this is what shouyld be stopped.....these radical muslims are the devils deciples
Must be all the inbreeding that makes them think like they do?.
Party poopers. Oh well, at least there are fewer young mobile terrorist factories walking around.
What barbaric people these cultists are, withdraw our troops, let them kill each other off.
