    Afghans Riot over American stupidity

    Why do we embrace torture in America? It is hard to prove that it works. The events in Iraq damaged us immeasurably, and now we are faced with riots in Afghanistan over US (Gitmo) use of the Koran as a prop in torture. The situation in Afghanistan has slowly declined despite the lack of interest in American media.
    Hundreds of students rioted in the city of Jalalabad over reports that the Koran was desecrated at the US prison camp in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

    President Hamid Karzai has said the violence showed the inability of Afghan authorities to handle such protests.
    In Jalalabad, buildings belonging to the United Nations are reported to have been attacked and the offices of two international aid groups are said to have been destroyed.

    Pakistani ambassador to Afghanistan, Rustam Shah Mohmand, told the BBC the Pakistani consul's house had also been burned down and two cars torched.

    One international aid worker in Jalalabad told the BBC that he could see smoke rising from points across the city.

    He said there were groups of people running along the streets, reportedly looking for foreigners and anyone working for non-governmental organisations.

    The Taliban is still prominent in Afghanistan. Make no doubt, that war is still brewing. This only helps their cause. I hope the US Military got good info from this because the price has already been dear.
