    Anyone know what Taliban means? it means "2 students" in arabic lol
    Wouldn't two students be conjugated as Talibayn? I know Taliban means just "The Students" but I also remember hearing that two in arabic usually ends in ayn-/ain.

    Dunno about Sharameeeeeeeeeet.

    :p:

    It's not "their" country. It's the afghan people's country.

    What does a female terrorist get?
    Someone who terrorises innocent people, is an oppressor, someone who fights against oppression, is a martyr and deserves the highest heaven.

    As for your accusation that the Taliban is anti female education, my afghan female friend, who would seem to most people as 'western' and in no way 'fundementalist/extremist' told me that they do not oppose female education but advocate single sex schools.

    The Taliban are Afghans, so by that logic it is equally the Taliban's country

    these '72 virgins' are not of the human kind, like myself or any other female on this earth.

    And even then, if an old bearded man went to heaven, he would not enter as himself, but young and beautiful and handsome, like all other people who enter heaven.
    Not of the human kind? What the heck does that even mean?! Are you refering to other species? And if so is it a specific animal they receive or is it all down to Hooky's preference at the bestiality buffet? :woo:

    I've never heard that take on things before. Is it "official" or just your suggestion? If it's "official" could you provide some quotes?

    I don't contest the Taliban are barbaric and I am against them, however they are still Afghans. That is fact that you cannot contest. So by your logic it is their country just as much as the rest of the Afghan populace
