RE: Should I stay or should I go? POLITICAL op/ed
The US should probably go in and bomb the shit out of military weapons/vehicles left behind now in the hands of Taliban.

Wow, some people are going to Afghanistan on a school trip.

Quote:Dozens of California students and parents are stranded in Afghanistan after taking a summer trip to the country.

More than 20 students and 16 parents from the Cajon Valley Union School District in El Cajon, Calif., visited Afghanistan on summer vacation. Now they are among thousands of people who are waiting to leave the country amid the chaotic U.S. withdrawal that has caused political unrest across the nation, according to the Los Angeles Times.

teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

I saw that on the news a couple of hours ago. They were there visiting extended family. I expect that they wanted to make one more visit while they could. Given that the US was working on pulling out, I consider that visit to be incredibly bad judgment.
If you get to thinking you’re a person of some influence, try ordering somebody else’s dog around.
