    This girl is a true HERO !!!

    I'm sure most have heard about the Taliban's thoughtless attempted execution of this 14 yr old girl who stood up against the Taliban and in support of the education of girls in Afghanistan.

    I only hope she recovers and lives to continue to fight the backward, retarded thoughtlessness of the Taliban and religious extremists in general.

    Those guys are nothing but fucks.

    Get well, Malala...the world needs more kids like you !!!

    Seems like no one here gives a fuck. She's a remarkably brave girl.

    The lack of responses is an accurate reflection on the mentality of the West.

    Yeah that's it. Unless someone says something about the incident it means nobody cares. Cause I mean words like have meaning and real action engaging substance and all........

    Really dude ? Not to be callous, but this incident doesn't trump the other horrible things done to OTHER girls, boys, men, women, villages, towns, tribes in the name of a movement or just out of pure hatred.

    Sad thing is this isn't even news in Afghanistan/Pakistan. Girls trying to go to school have had acid thrown on them, beaten, teachers exectued, and schools blown up by the Taliban. It's a rough time to be living in that region, let alone being a girl. I think dogs get treated better over there.

    I think it's making headlines in Pakistan. Particularly now the Taliban have said they'll target her father now because she's still alive.

    Thoughtless? I think a lot of thought went into her attempted murder, and more thought is going into another attempt should she survive.

    This might be the straw that broke the Taliban's proverbial back in Pakistani public opinion. Here's hoping that is so.

    The ISI will still support the Taliban, so nothing will change.

    Perhaps some of us just don't open every thread AKR starts and care enough to go there!

    Brave girl. Hope she recovers fast and fully. She has already done more than many for her cause and her cohort.

    There it is. When I saw the title I knew what it was about, but didn't bother to open it until there were a few replies.

    I think we have all been following this story.

    My thought on this, "This happens Every day" I wonder if this girls story hitting the news will cause any kind of reaction from the Pakistani people. Or the Aganistan population.

    On a sim ilar note, has anyone seen any stories for the past couple months related to Drone strikes in North Western Pakistain? We used to see news of strikes every week. Now (Crickets)

    Did we stop?

    And what is america supposded to do? Are we leaving and letting them deal with thier own problems?
    Or are we supposed to double down and invade Pakistain in a big way to wipe out the Taliban there?

    Actually, according to the BBC and Radio Netherlands reports I hear, she is amazingly popular in Pakistan (at least in less taliban-infested cities like Karachi) for her stance against the totalitarianism of the Taliban, especially as pertaining to the rights of girls. She is really a national hero amongst those that dislike the Taliban.

    I don't really think we need to DO anything as a government over there. We've got our fingers in way too many people's pies as it is.

    Now if the many many Pakistan citizens in this country and Canada want to speak against the absurdity of this crime to their families back in Pakistan, and maybe send money to anti-Taliban organization and forces, well that would be beneficial and something a private citizen can do.

    Where's the poll? I want to make my vote count.

    I guess it'll just have to be Facebook updates and Twatter twats to show my support.

    No, I think for that you need to post the word "VIBES" with lots of plus symbols surrounding it.

    1. I care.What an absolutely heartbreaking incident...who the fuck shoots a little girl in middle of a bunch of schoolkids on a bus?? fucking ignorant scum.

    2. I usually don't read AKR posts, Who has that much time in a day?

    3. I hope this becomes a wakeup to Pakistan about their cow-towing to the Taliban and religious extremist, but I doubt it
