masercot: Sure, but if we killed every member of the Taliban, raped their women, sowed salt in their fields and ground their children up into a fine paste, suddenly WE'D be the bad guys...

ModernPrimitive01: this kind of thing is why I don't understand why people support the crazed killing in the name of religion crowd. If you're a Pakistani, Afghani, or Libyan, why isn't there a general consensus to stop supporting these people? We have our share of religious crazies here too, but for the most part, they're relegated to silly protests. How do they get that much power in their communities? (I know they have weapons, but still, without a large amount of support I can't see them lasting very long)


Because OWS and the Tea Partiers won't storm a school bus and shoot a child in the head. It's one thing to openly and vocally oppose someone with a ridiculous sign or tea bags hanging from his hat. It's another when the person thinks that God has lots of rewards for him in heaven if he car bombs your whole family into oblivion.

These guys who were pissed about her support for Obama, they should be paying more attention to Madonna. Then they'd know he's one of them and that all of his liberal causes are just ploys to gain public support until he institutes the ultimate totalitarian Muslim state in the USA - United State of Allah.

Because they're powerful enough to stabilize the region. Once things are stable then commerce can flourish, water gets treated, electricity works, shiat doesn't blow the fark up all the time.

Problem is, you gotta put up with the crazy stuff too.

Hussein was like this, Iraq was stable for years under him. There was a stable economy, colleges and universities, museums, art and every now and then he'd gas the Kurds.

It's great to know that both the western media is acknowledging this happening and that people in the Middle East are rallying in support for her. But the Taliban are going to be pissed that people are calling them out instead of kneeling to them. They're probably going to do more crap to get them to submit.

Keep on fighting, Malala. And keep on fighting, citizens of Pakistan.

Magnanimous_J: Mentalpatient87: No, actually any kind of fundamentalist is an asshole and worsens humanity. Some are just less murderous than others.

The only reason our fundies aren't as murderous is because they don't have the government support that the Muslim ones do. If the average Freeper could get away with a casual lynching or bombing a few abortion clinics without ending up in prison, you bet your ass they would.

Hate is hate, and if your religion gives you an excuse to inflict that hate on others AND you don't have to suffer consequences for it...


This is true, the fundie morons here who resort to violence usually get caught and either martyr themselves or end up in jail. Over there half the corrupt governments support them and let them hide in plain sight. I have great faith that the Christian fundies here would resort to more violence if they could get away with it.

There have been massive rallies allover the Arab world and particularly in Pakistan and Afghanistan in support of this girl, and it was the Hyper-conservative UAE government that got her out of Pakistan and is paying for her stay in London, so, yeah, PR-wise I'd say the Taliban farked up right and proper on this one. That's why they are trying to finish this girl off, because if they can't loved right now they at least want to be feared, which is hard to do when a fourteen-year old girl isn't afraid to give you the finger

Because we went through this huge, painful philosophical shift called The Enlightenment that allowed us to have a secular society that's not tied to religious orthodoxy.

They haven't.

For all the sturm und drang that invariably follows this topic, that's pretty much it. Until a society reaches the point where it accepts certain fundamental tenets, such as the freedom of belief, stuff like this will happen.

the reason they don't have power here is because we have a stable and powerful police force and rule of law. without this stability, the crazies are usually the ones in power because they're the most likely to use force.

people don't end up supporting them so much as they realize that the crazies have dominated the area, and that you have to do what you're told because they have guns and will kill your children for looking at them the wrong way.

It's actually going about as well as could be expected, as long as you aren't one of those folks who pee thier pants because the Mulsim Brotherhood party has the word "muslim " in it. Which actually brings me to a question I have for all the former GWB supporters who told us that the war in Iraq was worth the trillion we spent on it and the 4,000 lives we lost in it, because "it was going to spread democracy to the middle east": Who did you THINK was going to be popularly elected in majority-muslim countrys where secularism is intimately associated with brutal dictators?

They want her dead. These clowns murder people every day. They don't care about a message. They believe they are enforcing God's will. The only reason this *got* attention was the whole "oppressed schoolgirl wants an education" angle. They have, just this year, killed multiple police officers, a singer, a Red Cross worker, and the international response to all of that was a collective "meh."
