if you're a girl in Afghanistan, and you want to go to school to learn things, be prepared to have fundamentalist religious extremists throw acid in your face.
Fox News coverage. UK (Daily Mail) coverage. Aljazeera English coverage (complete with morons making comments like "I blame the US" - give me a f*ckin break!) MSNBC had no direct story on it, but had links to this happening at least 6 times in the last 3 years. Despicable. Attacking school girls with battery acid, what cowardly little pieces of merde the Taliban are!
NPR & BBC reported today (heard on my radio in my office) that the Taliban are now targetting bakers, butchers, and other businessmen, to get the populace to listen and obey them. Killing these business people, the 13th century loving fundamentalists have found is more effective than executing school principals, mayors, and policemen. Great.
