While Iraq crumbles into civil war in the wake of Obama’s disastrous and weak Middle East policy, the Taliban are strengthening by the day in Afghanistan.

Taliban insurgents cut the index fingers off 11 Afghans who participated in this weekend’s presidential run-off poll, officials say.
The incident, a punishment for voting, occurred in western Herat province, police spokesman Raoud Ahamdi said.
