Know Your Enemy

Knowing the enemy is more instructive than "understanding" the enemy (as the bleeding hearts would have us do). Consider this, from BBC News World Edition:
Aid workers die in Afghan ambush

Three foreign and two Afghan aid workers have been killed in an ambush in the north-west of the country, according to police.

The attack occurred in the village of Khair Khana, in Badghis province, 550 km (340 miles) west of Kabul.

The victims were members of international aid organisation Medecins Sans Frontieres [Doctors Without Borders] and were thought to be setting up a clinic in the area.

The former ruling Taleban has said it carried out the attack.
