Letting The Terrorists Win

Anti-war protesters in no way help the innocent Afghan people by protesting US military actions. The Taliban regime is Islamic fascism. They are oppressive and at odds with even the simplest of freedoms.

Protesters in this country are very fortunate not to be in Afghanistan, where to protest against the government peaceably is a death sentence.

With the events of 9/11, we tasted the terror that the innocent Afghan people live with day to day. Let us end the terror the Taliban thrusts on the Afghan people and our own. We must remove the Taliban from the face of the earth. To do anything less, and anti-war protesters would have us do much less, is to let the terrorists win against the USA and Afghanistan. Let the bombs drop.
