Taliban Shoot 14 Y.O. Girl Rights Campaigner

#2
Only a few politicians acted shocked. The bit in the Quoran that says it`s ok to shoot 14 year old girls comes after the bit that says it`s ok to pour acid on schoolgirls. This isn`t the first act of violence against females and unfortunatly it will not be the last.

Must have been a CIA sniping drone.

Has Imran Khan issued a statement yet? Has his convoy diverted to show support and solidarity and to highlight this unwarranted intrusion into Pakistan's internal affairs?

Was watching "creationist" conspiracy road trip last night, there was a big guy with an ulster accent on it who seemed just about right for forming his own version of the Taliban (perhaps he could call it the billyban), and start offing evolutionists and gays. Religion can really **** some people up.

Imram is on the naughty step so far as TTP and Nawaz are concerned. Tribal leaders presented him with a turban and forgetting he was not at a tennis match he threw it into the crowd at the end of his speech. So he is now the Great Satan.

Is this shooting worse than a Government minister offering reward for murder on US soil? Dunno. I find my interest in the country below the regional strategic / nuke level diminishes with each new 'episode' of this nature.

Impressive young lady. Started campaigning at the age of 11.

Ironic that most of us would have campaigned to avoid school when we were her age, not to go there ;-)

And the main point to take away from this is it's the Swat Valley, where the elite of Pakistan used to take skiing holidays and only about a 100 miles from Islamabad. In 2007 when it first fell to the TB, there was minor concerns among ISAF that Pakistan was in danger of falling to the TB.

Yeah, he really did 'exude silent menace' as your man said. Was really disappointed to see that there was British people who still harbour such beliefs.

Once again the brave boys of the Taliban show their mettle by attacking a defenseless girl.

I never used to bother if people wished to believe in invisible friends or sky pixies but I am now more inclined to view the religion of peace as a cancer which will need drastic treatment at some point.

However, before the apologists start to make the usual excuses along the lines of "the majority of muslims are peaceful and do not support the beardy, shouty ones etc etc", I think it is about time this muslim "silent majority" actually stood up to be counted and did something about the problem before the beardy bigots brings a world of trouble down on their heads.

When we moved from 'Wee Ulster' (AKA Clydeside) to England it was like a breath of fresh air to get away from the early 17th century mindset. "Whit school dae you go tae?"
In Cambs, my wife didn't even know she had RC kids in her class until the priest came along to take them off for a bit of extra curricular.

Have you made a compensation claim yet?

Off on a tangent, we had a young Jesuit Priest take over as one of our Parish Priests when I was in primary School, he had been to a seminary in Spain (Franco was still alive and in charge) wore 'tackety' boots and if you weren't fast enough would kick you *********** as you walked/ran/crawled by, as he thought all young boys had/were thinking thoughts that deserved a kick up the backside......

Agreed, but your silent majority is present in every society on earth. In the case of Muslims, they will not only tend to waver in favour of their own people, but they will rigidly adhere to their imams' words, no matter what they say.

I was in Egypt over the first Gulf Crisis and Egyptians generally welcomed the invasion of Iraq, etc, but it didn't take long for our embassy's locally-employed staff to express their worries to our administration officer that infidels had invaded their brothers' (ie Iraqis') country.

Sponge Bob Square Pants. A cartoon character from American TV channel Nickelodeon. I really cannot think why the JCS have not considered Sponge Bob Square Pants as a solution to an incredibly complex geo-political, military and social issue with nukes lurking on the sidelines.

But thank you for your input. We'll be in touch. Since you are connected with Hollywood, I don't suppose you have a number for Mickey Mouse? Only my daughter would like an autograph. PM me, yah? Cheers.
