For God's sake stop calling them Taliban. Call them terrorists, call them rebels, call them goons, call them militants, call them fifth columnists, call them anything but Taliban. The word Taliban gives them a shroud of respectability, some kind of authority and some kind of legitimacy. Any group that prompts a ten-year-old boy to behead a Colonel, a Major and several other innocents, have no right to exist amongst us. The word 'Taliban' should be taken out of our dictionary. -L.H. KHAN, via e-mail, July 11.
