Why the World can do without the Taliban...



If you want to read about the genesis of this article in Time Magazine, and the article itself follow this link.

Otherwise, the picture can do the talking on this one.

There was an interesting bit on cnn regarding the wikileaks debacle, which is related to this story. Its a good excercise for the moralists. They brought in 2 guests that had polar viewpoints to the issue and manged to discuss the issue without it becomong a shouting match.

On the photo itself I would have to say "well done time magasine". Its shocking visceral stuff.

Like an old saying said that a picture will tell a thousand words, right?

@ PJ...

Sorry for the delay in responding to your comment. Slipped past without me seeing it.

A debate as a opposed to a shouting / slanging match...now there is an idea!

Yes, the picture is pretty confronting!

Aside from telling a thousand words, a picture also allows for myriad of personal responses to the image (critical literacy).
