"Bad Taliban" Kill "Good Taliban" Leader in Pakistan

This happens far too .... seldom:

A senior Taliban commander, Ghulam Jan, along with four militants died in a bomb blast at Mana village, 15 kilometers west of Wana, the capital of South Waziristan, on Thursday.

Tribal and official sources said someone had planted an improvised explosive device in the village near the Afghan border....

They said he was considered an important figure of the pro-government Taliban organization previously led by the late militant commander Maulvi Nazeer.

I'd like to say it was us who killed him, but it wasn't. Clearly this was the work of anti-Pakistani government Taliban killing the pro-Pakistani government Taliban leader.

The last "good Taliban" that was killed was killed by us. But when we kill, we go high tech: drones.

I really wish I could say there was a lesson here for the Taliban. Something along the lines of: make peace with the Pakistanis or no, we will kill you.

But there isn't any lesson here. Other than that Pakistan is one effed up place. And if you just learned that lesson, then you are at least three standard deviations to the left of average intelligence. What we in statistics call the Biden zone.

2 If he wants to look like a woman, let him pay for it. Or make him wait till he gets out of prison. This is not medically necessary and as a convicted criminal, he shouldn't get the treatment, especially on the taxpayers' dime.

4 The "good" Taliban are only the ones who will take our money and not overthrow the paki's just yet to turn the area into another new muslim super theocracy.

5 Off subject but I just heard a 89 year old ww2 Vet was savagely beaten to death by two teenagers. I'm bringing this up now because don't know who the attackers or victim is. I just want to make a bet.
I'll bet that the victim is white and the savages would look like Obama's sons if he had some.
I'll also bet that RACE HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH IT.

Any takers?

6 Sadz. When the "proto Taliban" were fighting the Russians and we gave them billions they were all brave mujahadin and all were good.
