Have a nice life with the Taliban. We can’t and will not put more American blood
and treasure behind a government that behaves like a Mafia family. If you don’t
think we will leave — watch this.” (Cue the helicopters.)

Top Pakistan university to ban kissing - When an unsuspecting female student at Lahore University of Management Sciences turned to peck her boyfriend on the cheek during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan last month, she probably thought her private moment would remain just that. Instead the kiss – which a fellow student witnessed, documented, and then blasted in an email to the entire university as part of her "dossier" on campus PDAs (personal displays of affection) – has sparked a passionate, headline-grabbing debate about how conservative Pakistani society should be.
