    In an attack drawing widespread condemnation, a lone Taliban gunman today approached a crowded school bus in Pakistan's once-volatile Swat region and opened fire. His target: A 14-year-old girl who'd campaigned against the Taliban for the right to go to school.

    Television footage showed Malala Yousafzai lying on a stretcher and being airlifted to a military hospital in Peshawar. The gunman approached the bus and asked whether anyone could identify Malala, according to local police.

    When one of her schoolmates singled out the teen, the gunman shot her twice, including once in the head. He also shot the girl who identified Malala before fleeing.

    Malala is in serious condition, while the other girl's condition is unknown.

    A Taliban spokesman has claimed responsibility, referring to her campaign for the right to go to school an "obscenity.

    "This was a new chapter of obscenity, and we have to finish this chapter," Taliban spokesman Ahsanullah Ahsan said in a statement sent to The Associated Press. "We have carried out this attack."

    Malala's rise to prominence began in 2009, when she wrote a diary for BBC Urdu under a pseudonym chronicling the oppression she and other girls at her school faced at the hands of the Taliban. At the time, the Taliban had ordered the closure of all girls schools in the region.

    Her father, who ran a private school, was forced to comply, leaving Malala and her friends with nowhere to study. In all, 50,000 girls were forced out of school in a matter of days.

    In one blog post titled "Do not wear colourful dresses," Malala wrote about not wearing school uniforms, to avoid being detected by the Taliban.

    Of course, whatever is said on these pages will have no affect, but such action shows the depth to which human reasoning and thinking can descend.
    What a coward, to shoot a child that way.

    Does she or others like her deserve this? Joe Biden was explaining less than a year ago that the Taliban wasn't per se our enemy. What are they then? Fucked up situation and damn sad for the girl.

    Both obama and biden said that the taliban wasn't our enemy.

    The Taliban are not an enemy of the U.S. and should not be talked about in such terms, Joe Biden has claimed.
    The vice-president said the militant Islamist group only represents an inherent threat if it allows Al-Qaeda to strike at the U.S.
    In an interview with Newsweek, Mr Biden warned against labelling the Taliban as an enemy.

    Then obama and biden said that Al Quaeda wasn't a threat.

    Ahead of the anniversary of Osama bin Laden’s death, a top American counter-terrorism official said that the core of bin Laden’s terror organization, al Qaeda, is in shambles and is a “shadow of its former self,” but the fight continues.

    These are the natural democrat allies, not enemies, so it is natural that there is no concern of this little girl's life. If her mother got pregnant in the US, the child (being female) would have been aborted.

    See, the idea is to follow the fuckin' thread, or start one with a totally different topic.

    Even a partisan idiot should be able to grasp this concept.

    Who the fuck is running the Swat region of Pakistan? Pakistanis or the Taliban....or are they one and the same?

    Apparently the "once-volatile" region still is a tad hot. The USA should encourage Pakistan to get their nuclear-armed shit together, pronto, before we do it for them.

    The sincere Pakistani politicians who are not one and the same as the Taliban are not winning, they are getting assassinated.

    The insincere Pakistani politicians may well say they not one and the same as the Taliban so as to get US and Western cash in billions of dollars a year but then take the cash and spend it on something else, such as nuclear weapons and other expensive items desired by the Pakistani elite.

    The Pakistani military intelligence agency appears to be organising, training and arming the Taliban and other terrorist groups. Watch this video -

    VIDEO: BBC Documentary - "SECRET PAKISTAN - Double Cross / Backlash" (2 hours)
    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6_SkNUorWhc"]Secret BBC - Pakistan Double Cross on Terrorism - Full - YouTube[/ame]

    So if the Pakistani military support the Taliban what chance do unarmed civilians have against armed terrorists? None.

    What sense does it make for the USA to give military aid to the Pakistani military which is supporting the Taliban? None.

    Yet American tax-payer money flows to the Pakistani military in billions of dollars every year. :confused:

    Well USA aid money has enabled the Pakistanis to get more nuclear weapons. The way to stop a country getting more nuclear weapons is like with Iran, apply sanctions, bankrupt their economy. Giving a country billions in aid simply encourages them to get more and more nuclear weapons.

    So long as the US government continues to give no-strings billions of dollars to the Pakistani state with a naive wish that aid money will be well-spent against terrorism, the reverse will be guaranteed.

    We need a proper military strategy to fight the Taliban and their supporters in the Pakistani state.

    Only very intelligent military strategists, as smart as I am, can carry such a strategy out.

    Popular but foolish politicians will never beat the Taliban, not "pronto", not ever, and innocents will continue to slaughtered, all for show, because the US government has more money than brains.

    As long as there are courageous people like this girl there is hope that someday people will experience those freedoms that many of us enjoy as a way of life. Life among the Taliban is a living hell.

    Surviving and becoming a symbol of her cause for freedom and education is a good way to answers these creeps. I do not believe these people will change but for this 14 year old to stand against the Taliban and their means of disposing of problems may inspire others.
