#619. The Taliban

Twenty years after the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan, the worst "nation building" episode in the history of the planet earth appears to have come to a swift conclusion.  The Taliban are now at "the gates of Kabul."  Back in business T (mark 4:27).

If you want my honest opinion, this rag-tag bunch seems slightly more trustworthy than the Orange Prolapse.



Fuck!  Do not ask why!  So absurd…  inhumane… the Taliban!

Look!  Up in the Sky!  It’s a bird… it’s a plane…  it’s Superman!
Robert Benton

Never been to Afghanistan.  Although I will say one thing.  Kandahar sounds like it could be a really beautiful vacation destination.  Then... you arrive.

I was eight years old when the original Superman came out back in 1978.  Big Lex Luthor fan (Gene Hackman, 91 years old and still kickin').  Superman?  Eh, not as much.

Please do not share this material with the Taliban.
