How Do We Feel About the Afghan Jail Break?

Yesterday one of the biggest jail breaks in history occured in Afghanistan. The Telegraph writes:

Yesterday, Sarposa’s entire population of 1,100 inmates – including murderers, bandits and about 450 hardened Islamic militants – was enjoying freedom after an audacious Taliban attack engineered one of the biggest mass jail breaks in history.

It seems Western forces are just unable to put the Taliban to rest. Afghanistan has been an unstable state since 1979. One of the reasons the Taliban lasted is because they were the only group that was able to bring stability to the region.

Were they really “hardened Islamic Militants” in the jail or were they “freedom fighters.” Who knows. What is really going on Afghanistan anyway?
