    Congratulations to Malala Yousafzai, she is a wonderful choice. The battles she faced and pulled through are nothing short of amazing, wishing her all the best as she continues on with her life.

    Pakistan isn't known for being stable. Pretty scary that it has nukes.

    I just hope there's a plan in the Pentagon somewhere to deploy a rapid reaction force and secure and remove all Nukes from Pakistan if it goes failed state.

    I reckon there is.

    I wonder how many of those who rush to (rightfully) laud Malala will also then rush to abandon all other Afghan girls to their fate .

    Check out the terrain, and the likelihood of immediate overwhelming response.

    That would be a pretty..... um..... difficult mission.

    We all should be worried about her safety. Everything I have read about her suggests and eventual return to face those of an ideology that refuse to accept the change she stands for. At the same time it is a fight she seem passionate enough about to put her self in danger over. We should all wish her well, she will need it.

    India would love us if we did that.

    Although unstable Pakistan scares China, which I also like.

    A trade-off.

    I know, but it makes you wonder if our decision to give the Paki's nukes really stabilized the situation? I doubt we foresaw their gov't becoming so radicalized?
