It's appalling enough that 14-year-old Malala Yousafzai, who publicly championed the cause of education for girls in Pakistan, was shot in the head and neck and critically injured by gunmen who boarded her school bus in the Swat Valley.
Even more horrendous is that a Taliban spokesman declared that she had been singled out for attack because of her support of girls' education in defiance of Taliban edict. "Let this be a lesson," the spokesman told the New York Times. We hope it will be a lesson — that such violence is barbaric and counterproductive. It has no place in today's world. Not in Pakistan or Afghanistan or anywhere else. Even worse is they say they will make sure they kill her next time.
It is high time Pakistani's and Afghani's rise up unite and eradicate this vermin enemy of Islam "the Taliban! The people would be wise to remember the cutting off of heads and hands that is routine for the Taliban and how stifling it is under their rule. As a whole they should remember the thousands of them the Taliban have purposely killed. They should form Lashkar's (civilian defense against the Taliban) and eliminate the Taliban or life as they want it is over.
Get rid of the Taliban! At one time I believed they should be allowed to rule or whatever they wanted because they were indigenous but I now believe they should be eliminated. After many beheadings and killings of men women and children for not living and doing things the way the unrighteous gang "the taliban" says, I now feel they should be isolated or eliminated.
