No joke. The Taliban, in a move to soften its bad public image (it appears that’s the reason), has issued a new “code of conduct,” which is 69 pages long. It essentially says that you shouldn’t attack Afghan civilians, unles they side with the Afghan government or NATO. Oh, wow, what gents!
“Kinder, Gentler” Taliban: Oh, What a Feeling to Drive Toyota (& Kill People)!
That’s kinda like a Manson Family code of conduct which says not to kill pregnant celebrities and cops unless they side with being human. Not sure, either, why it took the Taliban 69 pages to note this basically one-sentence policy, which is really same ol’, same ol’. And that might explain why, despite this facade of a “code of conduct,” the terrorist group killed 220 Afghan civilians in July alone. Way to go, guys, with that new Taliban era of “moderation.”
And what exactly about this policy is new? Not sure. But this “Newer, Softer” Taliban campaign might be in response to leaks about Obama wishing to talk with and reach out to these bloody terrorists. Either way, it reminds me of a HILARIOUS past video I posted on this site (back in January), which is equally apropos to this Taliban “code of conduct”:
