Taliban ‘skins man alive’ in Afghanistan as war takes increasingly brutal turn

In a remote area of Afghanistan, where thousands of years of hardscrabble tribal culture increasingly mixes with a resurgent Taliban militancy, this is how Fazl Ahmad allegedly died.

Local officials in Ghor province said one of Ahmad’s distant relatives was suspected of killing a former Taliban commander. In December, militants dragged Ahmad from his house and cut out his eyes in retaliation.

Ahmad was still alive and screaming when the attackers began carving the skin off his chest, leaving his heart exposed. Then they threw the 21-year old laborer off a 10-story cliff, officials said.

      In a remote area of downtown Toronto, where thousands of years of hardscrabble Afghanistan tribal culture increasingly mixes with the gay pride parade…

      Well everyone knows what is coming to Toronto, it will be just like Orlando.

      PM Turdeau has chosen his muslim brothers over his gay useful idiots.

    Prime Minister Justin Treasoneau should bring more of his muslim brothers to Canada so they can enrich us just like this.

    There’s nothing new about this type of torture. The Afghans performed it on Russian soldiers unlucky enough to be taken alive. The Russian called it a “Kandahar Rose.”

      I have read in various articles/books that certain tribal ululating Afghan women were skilled at skinning, plus cutting off genitals of captured Russian soldiers staked out in fields.
