    Nuke leaves behind too much pollution. Why don't you try blankets or food contaminated with disease or simply nerve gas?

    US government backed Afghan mujahedeen in their fight against Soviet Russia occupation back in the day, as well as promoting rise of fundementalist islam in countries around USSR so as to confine expansion of communist ideology.



    I have no idea what the fuck has been going on in Afghanistan but I think it has something to do with drugs like opium or the kind. Fight against terrorism is just a cover for that.

    Wars are always about resources, anything else is just propaganda and disinformation campaigns.

    If the US stays intertwined, it's bad news for the US. However, if the US takes a hands-off posture toward the whole situation, it'll be bad news for the US. In case you've forgotten, one goal of Islamic terrorism is the complete destruction of that Great Satan the United States of America.

    And for those of you who still don't care: One of the sides in this conflict is considering using nukes.

    This, is what "we" are not getting, especially how it's applied via theocracy.
