    That was really outrageous:
    When Taliban indulge in such atrocities, it is accepted but a regular Army personnel doing that is simply not on.




    Oh God that can be very very damaging.

    I am reminded of Mahabharata. On the thirteenth day of war, when Gurur Drona laid out a Chakravyuha, Seven top Kaurava leaders having collectively assassinated Abhimanyu danced around his body. That became a reason and rationale for :

    Drona being killed by an untruth and when he become unarmed struck with a grief.
    Karna being killed when he was down and under
    Dushashan's horrible death

    slaying 98 other sons of Dhritarashtra


    what do you all say

    Why is Russia Today contacting the amateur ISI propagandist Ahmed Qureshi for his take on that matter? RT is really going down to low standards.


    On the video, its still available on other video sites. Also, from what I have seen, you can't be sure they are Taliban fighters as they one of them doesn't have a beard and the other two have very small ones. No black turbans either which is a tell tale sign as well.

    There was also a wheelbarrow nearby. So they could be Taliban insurgents or maybe even smugglers or other criminals that got caught in the crossfire.

    But its certainly going to create a shitstorm in Afghanistan for sure. Even those who hate the Taliban will be appalled by it.

    The problem is that there has been a constant dehumanisation process where people do things like these or the Abu Gharaib tortures in Iraq and expect to get away because they think these people are sub-human. Until this dehumanisation ends, we can expect to see repetition of these.

    Has anyone seen what the Taliban or jihadis in J&K do to our live prisioners and the dead?

    A small example of Pakistani treatment of our dead - Jemadhar Nand Singh, MVC & VC, of 1 Sikh.
    He was killed in an ambush in Uri in Dec 1947 and body along with the other dead was dragged in a jeep till Muzaffarabad and declared on a loud speaker that his would be fate of all Indian VC winners. His body was thrown in a garbage dump and never recovered.

    Now captured Indians face an even more brutal fate.

    See this is the problem with human rights and other humanist dirt. They support terrorists openly now.
