The war on terror just got more dangerous. The Taliban has actual image consultations and is now rebranding the organization in a kindler and gentler image. In a new code of conduct, Mullah Muhammad Omar has ordered that the organization will now forego such signature methods as suicide bombings against civilians, burning down schools, or cutting off ears, lips and tongues. Next the Taliban will announce that it is starting a Terror for Tots program to reach out to underprivileged children. Wait, they already have that program.
The new code seems to be an effort to gain a broader level of support for the organization. What is curious is that school bombings and tongue-cuttings are not actually things that you change like a logo selection.
It is like saying we will no longer try to win the hearts and minds of people by tearing out their hearts and brains.
