    “… the Afghan regular force are using the schools as their make shift bases.” Passerby.

    So, are you not making exactly the same claim the Israelis make in relation to Palestinian schools?

    But wait! These schools, and the teachers that are being attacked and murdered by the Taliban, are in Pakistan. Malala is a Pakistani schoolgirl.

    Are you saying that the Afghan regular forces are using Pakistani schools to attack the Afghan Taliban from behind? Or are you claiming that the Afghan regular forces are using Pakistani schools to attack the Pakistani Taliban from the front?

    Or are you really saying that you will engage in a convoluted apologetics in behalf of those who kill people – children, teachers, health workers – as the Contras did in Nicaragua, so long as it’s in the name of the cause which you support?

    What are you saying, Fedup?

    Suhayl Assadi goes on,

    Are you saying that the Afghan regular forces are using Pakistani schools to attack the Afghan Taliban from behind? Or are you claiming that the Afghan regular forces are using Pakistani schools to attack the Pakistani Taliban from the front?

    Backed into a corner, the sophistry goes on, Afghan this, and that, Pakistan that, …… etc.

    Making the deduction the Pakistanis forces should be using the schools is far too difficult, and the “charges”; do you realize …… apologist…..

    What can you not understand?

    Taliban are not regular forces, they have no army “Intelligence” they have little in the way of equipment, and for the Afghan/Pakistani armies to use the schools as the basis for their operation can be either true, or false but in either case they would react to these premises as hostile. This is not supporting these characters, or aiding them, or condoning their actions. They are all in your mind!

    Finally Fedup! What is this all about?

    This is getting a tad annoying for certain characters on this board to keep on projecting their deceitful and underhand conduct onto others. Cease and desist from bundling me and others into one persona.

    “… for the Afghan/Pakistani armies to use the schools as the basis for their operation can be either true, or false…” Passerby.

    You previously presenetd it as a fact. Now you imply that it may be true.

    That is exactly what the Israeli Defence Force does wrt Palestinians. So, here, does it not seem clear that you are using IDF-style propaganda tactics in order to ameliorate the opprobrium which normally would attend the human rights abuses routinely and systemically committed by paramilitary Islamist death squads?

    Suhayl Saadi insists;

    You previously presenetd it as a fact. Now you imply that it may be true.

    This tedious exchange, has yet again reiterated the same weak, trumped up claims, albeit in a differing format.

    1- I was putting to you, the case of the use of the schools could be either, true or false! Do you understand, this point? (in the spirit of sophistry sure as the day is light there will be something found some where)*

    2- Apples cannot be added with pears, or oranges, or watermelons! You cannot equate a ragtag bunch of “resistance fighters” with a highly technical and capable army and all that goes with such an organisation. Notwithstanding that portraying the disorganised patch of resistance to sound oh so effective; “paramilitary”. This phrase is a license to kill for the NATO et al.

    3- Your tenuous grip on reality, will conclude whatever it may imagine regardless of the contents of my comments.

    4- You will come back holding onto the line; “is it not clear to you”. Evidently the more you repeat it the more likely eventually it will be true. Ever been to Kansas and clicked your heels?

    5- Are you in the process of applying to the AEI by any chance, to sit alongside illustrious dissemblers; Ayan Hirsi Ali et al?

    Do you believe it is a valid excuse for the Tabiban to claim that they attack and destroy schools and kill school teachers and pupils because they think the Afghan/Pakistan armies are in the schools? Do you think it is a realistic claim?

    Suhayl Saadi says;

    Do you believe it is a valid excuse for the Tabiban to claim that they attack and destroy schools and kill school teachers and pupils because they think the Afghan/Pakistan armies are in the schools?

    I will give you the benefit of the doubt and I will explain:

    1- Taliban are as you would know “students”. Also they are engaged in a low order/primitive fire fight with their “enemies”.

    2- Given that these ragtag groups of “resistance fighters” are composed of novices, their intelligence gathering operation should be based on hearsay. ie do not have access to the signals and intelligence corps and the complement of staff thereof the regular armies.

    3- Any entity, be it a scorned woman, a distraught suitor, or even Nato itself can feed bum data to these novices as “intelligence”.

    4- End result; yet again another excuse to hate the “Muslim Scum” even more, validate their aerial bombardment as the “only language” they understand.

    Do you think it is a realistic claim?

    You are again shoving the “claim” in there. It is not my claim, it is their claim, and I have only highlighted the fact that propaganda in trying to paint the Taliban into a corner has overlooked the use of schools as military bases. You ought to be aware that in that neck of woods there are no hotels and community halls for the armies to sequester as their operational base, any room would do, and mostly single room schools would do just fine for the unit commander to put his bed up.

    You are reading far too much into this transaction, and seem to have lost the sight of the woods for the trees.

    Is this clear to you now?
