Paglia On Afghanistan, Ctd

A reader writes:

You excerpted Paglia saying:

While I vociferously opposed the incursion into Iraq, I was always strongly in favor of bombing the mountains of Afghanistan to smithereens in our search for Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida training camps.

I find it interesting that she believes that the solution is to bomb "mountains".  Are there people in these mountains?  If not, what purpose does it serve?  If so, whom exactly are you killing?  Does it not matter to Paglia whom we kill in our search for bin Laden? She continues:

The technological West is too infatuated with easy fixes.
Like mountain-bombing?
