    84 children killed as Taliban storm school [W:171]

    At least 84 people, most of them children, have been killed after a group of gunmen stormed an army-run school in the Pakistani city of Peshawar.

    The Pakistan Taliban -- Tehreek e Taliban Pakistan (TTP) -- claimed responsibility for the attack Tuesday.

    Pervez Khattak, chief minister of the northwestern province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, said over 80 of the injured are children ranging from 12 to 16 years of age. He added that two of the attackers are now dead -- one blew himself up, while the other was killed by security forces.

    Earlier, Shahram Khan, the province's health minister, told CNN that two teachers and an army official had also been killed, while 104 more were wounded.

    The Pakistan military said a rescue operation involving its troops is currently underway at the school, with gunfire still being exchanged.

    Khattak said there was an "ongoing hostage situation."

    Take Mrs. Clinton's advice and "empathize" with the guys doing this. Maybe they went to that school and were picked on.

    If you look at story where 84 children were killed and went oh boy, how can I make this into a pot shot against Hillary you're truly an immoral person.

    84 children. Eighty freaking four kids are dead. None of them will see their adult years and all for what? All for you to make some snide comment about a quote you took out of context? Get the hell out of here.

    Considering a child dies of malnutrition every what? 15 seconds? I just can't get that worked up about it anymore.

    The Taliban is doing what they always do... Kill lots of people. This time it happened to be a group of kids. I just can't get that worked up about it anymore.

    You make it sound like I had to get creative to make Hillary's statement appear as stupid as it was.

    When you see this crap happen to kids you want to shoot and torture the Taliban jerks.
    I find it fascinating how some on the left think doing such would make us no better than them.

    This is a sickening and deplorable attack. It reveals the ugly nature of the individuals involved and the Taliban movement in general.
