Taliban insurgents admit they carried out the attack

#1
Hi guys

I quote the sentence "Taliban insurgents admit they carried out the attack" from this news article. Across many similar articles about many similar incidents I see many similar sentences where Taliban are said to admit responsibility. Why dont we simply trace the Taliban's messages, deal with with them, and end the war?

Thanks

A) Because it's not a war, it's an asymmetric conflict.
B) Because killing the spokesmen won't stop anything.
C) Because the situation will only be resolved through dialogue.
D) If you're going to quote this in your paper, I'm Kev Hughes. Anyone who remembers me from the AAC, PM me.

Shit - Yeah, cheers for that We'll be sure to do that in future!

SO far its only worked once though, when OBL sent out his VHS video press release in a jiffy postal bag with his business card inside, what a numpty, we'll have to hope for the same fortunate errors in the future!

K thx everyone. I guess Ive just reiterated a big part of army policy.
If you are a genuine recruit make sure you ask your training staff as many questions as you can. They'll respect you for having an inquiring mind and you'll be on the fast track to promotion. This works best with staff who wear a crown on their lower right sleeve and carry a stick a lot.

If someone in Pakistan sends a message, there is feck all that can be done. And that's where their PR/comms machine is, along with HQ, QMs, Trg Depots, etc.

Poor drills: you forgot to tell him those training staff respond best when addressed as, "Mate" or "Pal". And forget standing at attention - just grab him and give him a hug!:twisted:
