Taliban talk

Whether or not people are "freedom fighters" can only be determined by what they do with power once they obtain it (Observations, 1 September). The Taliban set up one of the most unspeakable tyrannies in history and are therefore savage terrorists, not freedom fighters. I write as someone who opposes our troops being in Afghanistan for pragmatic reasons - I am both a student of history and a Flashman reader.
