Finally: A twitter fight where someone really should get killed!

Earlier this week the Taliban announced they had a new twitter channel. They've had twitter accounts before (hello, violation of the law any one?) but this time is different: this time, they're talking to the ISAF. And the ISAF is talking back.

While the twitter fight between the Taliban and the ISAF is interesting, couldn't we just settle this like men and bomb the hell out of Qari Yousef Mohammad and "Dr." Zabihullah Mujahid (the Taliban spokesmen)? Both are known Taliban operatives and at least one of them is in Quetta, Pakistan.

As enemy combatants, killing them is not only legal under the rules of war ... but it just seems like the right thing to do. I mean, we've all wanted to kill someone over the stupid things they've said on twitter. Now is our chance!
