No, Al We Don’t Have To

From Holden:

I just heard Al Franken defend the latest US bombing of civilians in Afghanistan (something Unocal puppet Hamid Karzai says his government will investigate) “something we just have to do.”

You see, Al likes to burnish his “reasonable liberal” cred by voicing his whole-hearted support for whatever we do in Afghanistan.

However, we actually do not have to bomb Afghani women and children in order to kill the Taliban fighters hiding among them. In fact, such an attack is prohibitted by a laundry list of international laws. The (invaluable) Cursor has compiled a dossier of US airstrikes against civilians in Afghanistan. But Al probably does not know that because he’s too intent on avaoiding the pacifist label.
