I Know A Little Taliban, And There He Is

| | Comments (0)
People keep saying the United Arab Emirates should be shunned because they recognized the Taliban as the legitimate government of Afghanistan. What most of those people don't tell you is the other two countries to do so were -- apart from Israel, and now Iraq -- our two closest partners in the region: Saudi Arabia and Pakistan.

Anyway, I don't know of one person who really understands this UAE deal who asserts that it is endangering American security. So, *shrug.* Seems to me like there's a whole lotta pandering going on. slashdot.org
