    Nobody understands why we shot that 14 yr old girl, and now they're saying mean things about us.

    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    The Taliban is mad because the rest of Pakistan is mad at them over the shooting. "Undoubtedly this is the worst press the TTP has ever had, there is no doubt," Rana Jawad, Islamabad bureau chief of Geo News, told The Guardian's Islamabad correspondent Jon Boone. The Taliban have been furious that justification for the attack, that the girl was being "un-Islamic," was not being placed prominently in news stories. Muhammad Amir Rana of the Pakistan Institute for Peace Studies, says the Taliban are taking a PR beating. "We have seen a similar public sentiment in the past, but this time it is quite unique," he said. "This case has provided a catharsis of the masses for all the grievances that have been building up for years."
    That's progress.

    Hehe- we think it's bad now. Just wait until they have reached teenage status.

    Hmm....Paki media is finally beginning to realize that they could be next so it might be a good idea to rally up a little support. Interesting.

    How about a cruise missile, they're pretty unbiased.

    Hmm, mainstream Pakistanis aren't understanding why the big, bad Taliban was justified in shooting a child in the face. Who knew?

    Hopefully the people of Pakastan will be motivated to rid their country of Taliban. Beliefs or not, the Taliban have no place in todays world, (imo).

    Either they have a collective "right" to live as they choose, with their own laws, or they don't.
    Which is it?

    If they do, it doesn't matter.

    If they don't, then we "as in a collective world we", need to be involved in a little more policing action. An not be restrained when doing it.


    So which route do we take?

    I'd say let the pakistani people decide what to do about the Taliban. THEN toast the arseholes if pakistanis wont do it themselves.
