I sometimes wonder if the people with "Make Art not War" bumper
stickers, and the "Coexist" ones, have any idea what the ideas of
western civilization are up against with this stuff.

I mean, those Buddha statures in Afghanistan were Art.

world wonders on the rationale and whys of this 3rd Talibani commander
whose killed/executed the two culprits behind the "execution".

the most probable case is that this 3rd commander is a relative of late
Najiba whose has understandable reasons to disagree on the alleged
shameful accusations and kangaroo execution, and started honour killings.

In this case, I must point that here in Italy, when intestine feuds
starts, is also the best moment to strike hard against mafia.

The other, much more improbable, case is that the 3rd commander act by
superior order or *is* a superior of the other two, and is also a big
step ahead, because imply that Talibans start to understand concepts as
"war crimes" (an *huge* step ahead, if one thinks on....)

Either case, is a favourable moment whose needs to be exploited
intelligently....

Best regards from Italy,
dott. Piergiorgio.
