A week ago, time ran out for Taliban leader, a semi-literate, bearded, misogynistic, savage named Mullah Akhtar Mansour, last week:

Mullah Mansour, the leader of the Taliban, thought he was safe as he travelled through Pakistan’s Balochistan province last week in an area outside the zone in which the US Central Intelligence Agency operates its drones. He was wrong.

Mansour was driving back to his base in the Pakistani city of Quetta when his Toyota Corolla was struck by a drone-operated Hellfire missile. His fate was sealed by the fact that US spy agencies had obtained intelligence about his communications devices and were able to track him

After a short interval of mourning, picking lice out of unkempt beards, and scratching hirsute behinds a new leader was selected: Mullah Haibatullah Akhundzada.

Akhundzada was a top-ranking judge, who regularly issued fatwas advocating suicide bombings, as per Foreign Policy. The article said that although he has never led a military operation, his background as a religious scholar might help in unifying the splintering factions. It added that first task ahead of him will be to avenge the death of Mansour.

I know, you’re wondering why replacing one semi-literate, bearded, misogynistic, savage with another might mean peace. Well, that’s because you are a hater. Akhundzada is a religious scholar.

We’re told over and over that Islam is a religion of peace and that the only reason warfare in its name his carried out on six continents is because Muslims just don’t understand Islam as well as privileged Western leftists do. So now we have a genuine religious scholar in charge of the Taliban and I foresee nothing but good things happening.
