We sent our military into Afghanistan to find and eliminate as many al Qaeda as possible … and remove the backward, brutal Taliban from power. But the Taliban has proven to be like rats … difficult to eradicate.
Here’s one more reason to detest the Taliban. 14-year-old Pakistani Malala Yousufzai has been blogging about extremist militants in her area who use fear and intimidation to force girls to stay home from school. The Taliban claims responsibility for trying to silence this young woman by shooting up her school van, seriously wounding Malala and two classmates.
The attack has reportedly sparked outrage in Pakistan … as well as among the rest of the civilized world.
Shooting children for talking about wanting to go to school? Come on! Really?
My question to Pakistan, Afghanistan, and the rest of that region: Why do you put up with this Taliban baloney? Time to get tough!
Our thought for today is from Thomas Jefferson:
“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
