BPR: Horrifying video footage has emerged from Afghanistan, portraying a country that has descended into outright barbarism after President Joe Biden’s humiliating surrender to the Taliban brought about an inglorious end to the two-decade conflict.
Those who were unable to escape, largely due to Biden’s indifference, were soon at the mercy of an Islamic extremist regime that was already notorious for its cruelty, and the new government quickly moved to impose the most intolerant version of religious fundamentalist law as well as to exact a terrible regime against its enemies.
A top Taliban official dismissed international outrage over the executions that it has conducted, sometimes taking place inside of crowded stadiums, “Everyone criticized us for the punishments in the stadium, but we have never said anything about their laws and their punishments,” Mullah Nooruddin Turabi told the Associated Press.
He added, “No one will tell us what our laws should be. We will follow Islam and we will make our laws on the Quran,” and that “cutting off of hands is very necessary for security,” citing the deterrent value of amputations.
No sooner had the interview been published than grisly video hit social media showing the mangled and bloody body of one of the Taliban’s victims hanging from a crane in the main square of the city of Herat.
A witness told the Associated Press that “Taliban officials initially brought four bodies to the central square,” said the man who runs a pharmacy near the square, where the body was hung, “then moved three of them to other parts of the city for public display.”
The gruesome image was tweeted out by former CBS News reporter Lara Logan who wrote, “Happy Saturday America – aren’t you proud of your leaders & your tax dollars going to support such a good cause?” more here
WARNING: The first tweet is Logan’s (with video of the body) Keep that in mind and just keep scrolling if you don’t want to see it.
