The good thing is that the mountain regions are nearly cleared, providing they actually left.

You will not find any photos of dead Taliban with SHOES. It is the first thing taken.

Great post. Thanks for the 'graphic' warning but this is just what I've been waiting to see for two months! Though it pains me that these pigs died in one piece instead of being pulverized and denied a decent burial like our countrymen.

Suppose those mobs of Pakistani volunteers are still clamoring to get across the border to fight for Osama and the Taliban?

With your picture of the Paki prisoner, you posted, "I would not want to be that POW"

I just hope that he was one of those loud mouthed clymers bragging that he was going to cross the border to fight with the Taliban! Or even better, he flew from the UK to become a prisoner!

Hmmm! The guys are getting their beards shaved, but some of the women still are wearing their burqas. Didn't they get the word? Or are they expecting the Taliban to return and re-establish their rules?

A picture of an N.A. soldier north of Kabul. Taken a few days ago, but I think it is a classic.

Afganis are physically very attractive people. I remember a striking photo of an Afgani girl which was on the cover of National Geographic. Beautiful and green eyed. They made posters of her. I understand that National Geographic searched for her for a long time, but could never find her.

The women are probably afraid to take off their burquas becasue they have lived in a culture in which they were responsible for how the men behaved. It would be scary to take off protection unless the men have all had a cultural sea-change and would not sexually attack them.

I know the exact cover you are speaking of, I had that issue and still may....

She was wearing a deep red cloth over her head, and she was a beatiful girl with striking eyes.

A little PC overboard.

These pictures are the perfect bookends for the pictures from 9/11 showing the Trade Towers burning, the Pentagon in ruins, and dead Americans on the streets.

How ya feelin' now, you sniveling, chickensh!t sons of batches? And we ain't done yet. In fact, we're just getting a good head of steam ...

By the way, these "martyrs" may be enjoying an orgy in heaven, but we know for a FACT that their stinking, rotting carcasses are littering the streets of Kabul. Anyone else wanna take their chances?

Abuse button hit.

Regarding #8 This unintelligible link has been posted in numerous threads. That's bad enough. What's worse is that it activates unwanted popups. Please advise him to 1) lay off the spam postings, and 2) never link to a popup site without due warning.

I heard tonight that the ones left behind ARE the ones who came to fight for the Taliban from other countries; the Talban ran and left the Pakistanis and Arabs behind.

I've been haunted by that picture for 15 years, when I was about the same age. I've always thought her eyes were... supernatural, ethereal. I couldn't imagine what she saw to give her that expression, and even these pictures don't cut it.
