Savages on Speed Dial

(Image:  A Taliban spokesman talking to the press, 2000)
Some people here in civilization think its okay to negotiate with savages.  Even after they behead 17 people for merely attending a dance. 
In addition to the mass execution, I was also alarmed a this statement:
The Taliban spokesman for southern Afghanistan could not be reached for comment.
Do news agencies have the Taliban on their speed dials? 
"For inquiries about honor killings, press 1..."
One of my friends made this Footloose observation:
There is no Afghan Kevin Bacon gonna fight for the right to dance, methinks.
Sadly, methinks he is right.
