Now, there’s a lot of bad shit written about the Taleban. There’s the whole treatment of women issue, ethnic massacres and persecution — and, yes, they were a bit too pally with Osama bin Laden for most people’s taste. But having today read the article quoted below, I’m beginning to wonder if, perhaps, they don’t actually have, you know, a good side.
Looks like someone in Afghanistan’s been watching Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, methinks! (Actually, now that I think about it, maybe it wasn’t the Taleban at all! Our troops are indeed a brave bunch, but everyone has their limit… right?)
(Yeah, okay, I admit it — I’m quite fond of Ant and Dec, too, and wouldn’t really want anything bad to happen to them… honest 😉 )
