Taliban Condemn Violence in C. African Republic
ABC News ^ | February 22, 2014 (AP) | CASSANDRA VINOGRAD Associated Press

The Afghan Taliban on Saturday called for an end to violence against Muslims in the Central African Republic, making a rare statement on conflicts outside their region.

Central African Republic has been wracked by sectarian violence, with Christian armed fighters hunting down and killing Muslim civilians in recent weeks despite the presence of thousands of French and African peacekeepers. The violence has displaced tens of thousands of Muslims in what the United Nations human rights body has called "ethnic-religious cleansing."

In a statement released Saturday, the Taliban condemned the "merciless killings" of Muslims at the hands of "bloodthirsty militias" as the world sits "idly by."

It warned the situation threatens the peaceful coexistence of Muslims and Christians throughout Africa and urged the international community — including the pope — to stop the bloodshed.

Just like after WWII wherein there were no Nazis free in Germany, there should be no Taliban in Afghanistan.

We failed. We gave up. We lost, however we want to put it.

Okay, I had to go look up “Durga.” I don’t know if I’m any wiser, or even smarter, but I’ve got another piece of trivia shoved into my head.

The Taliban know what’s going on in the Central African Republic? This sounds more like a story from The Onion than from ABC.

Sounds like they either have had their asses handed to them, or plan a big move into the CAR.
