I know the hospital where she's being treated and believe me the Taliban is the least of her worries.

/lost my mom in that hospital due to incompetence.

Big_Fat_Liar: The real problem is the old testament. Fortunately, all but like 5 Christians ignore it in its entirety. The Islams need to get themselves a new testament thing going. Maybe a little less Jesusy.


What those 5 christian may look like.

Callous 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.

This times infinity.

Maybe they better introduce her to Salmon Rushdie, because this child is never going to be able to return to Pakistan.

The US is drawing down in Afghanistan. The Taliban is going to take over again. What a complete waste of American lives and hundreds of billions of dollars.

fawlty: liam76: Is the bottom guy Manson? Isn't he more just straight crazy then a "fundamentalist"?

that's the unabomber, I won't even try to spell his name. I don;t recall any religious connection to him. He was a neo-Luddite.


I've got no problem with Luddites, it's the neo ones that are a scourge to the matrix.

Or something....

Magnanimous_J: 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.


Pure speculation.

Rent Party: lordjupiter: Rent Party:

All the Taliban has to do is wait for attention to be drawn away by whatever shiny thing is next, and they can murder her in complete obscurity, and no one will give a damn.

Why would they do that? They want attention. They want to send a message.

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."

This little kid is screwed as soon as the collective ADD takes over.


Cops, famous people and relief workers aren't the same as a 14 year old girl speaking up as an activist. That's going to get more attention.

Yes, the news cycle will bury this at some point. I don't think the Taliban will "wait" for that, though. The more attention they can get for their flexing of muscle the better.

Aren't teenage(d) Pakistani girls people? Shouldn't the head line read "...who was shot..."? I thought "that" referred to dogs and things and we use when talking about people.

Fizpez: Seems to me a couple of public news announcements stating "Malala has been moved to such and such hospital in this nearly abandoned wing..." along with a few SAS guys, you know, just hanging out at said hospital might solve quite a few problems.

Kind of like sending "You've won SUPERBOWL tickets!" to wanted felons and arresting them when they inevitably show up to pick them up....


I'm hoping that was plan A all along.

Barfmaker 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.

He killed 150,000 Iraqi citizens a year. But we should have left him alone because he kept the lights on?

/Germany was pretty stable in 1939

Look another Christians are evil because the Taliban are savages thread on Fark. But but but an atheist blew up a building!! I'm so scared, fundies here are becoming the Taliban and they're going to oppress us all!!!! I have no problem shiatting on all over Christianity but if something negative about Islam comes up I must jump to Islam's defense by but but butting other religions! The Taliban may shoot children in the head for wanting an education but there are fundamental Christians in Kansas with signs, WITH SIGNS FOR FARKS SAKE!!

Oh yeah, the 300 or so people they murdered this year were just a warm up. This girl, *she* is a message.

They don't give a damn about attention. They give a damn about enforcing their will, as they see it as the will of God.

No, they're not. They're elected to Congress and given committee positions.

Human progress from this century onward will depend on our willingness to take one step before all others: we have to stop pretending that sky-fairy-worship is somehow "harmless" or "silly."

Activist? Really? Can a 14 year old even be an activist? She's a teen who thought and said girls out to be allowed an education. That makes her an activist?

Point being, I said they wouldn't wait, you said they would, then you contradicted yourself by saying they only cared about enforcing their will in the name of God, which means they don't care about waiting, either.

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.


And they did, in the post Civil War era when it was almost free-for-all to kill blacks for almost any reason they could think of.


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...


When the government allows it, it happens, just like in the deep South from 1870 through 1969-ish.

We have similar shait going on here except instead of religion its drugs.

FTFY



NOBODY is out to hand wave away the crimes of these particular islamic fundamentalists. The talk about christians and westerners who are crazy terrorists didn't begin until this troll wanted to make a point that only islamic fundamentalists were a problem. Most of us disagree with that point. Many people pointed out that fundamentalists (or extremists) of all stripes are a danger to civilized society. Nobody came in here from the start trying to character assassinate christians. Get down off your crosses and try not to be stupid for one thread if possible.
