Nickhere BS: Taleban Blow Up Schools (145* d) RE: BS: Taleban Blow Up Schools 07 Feb 09

Teribus, I for one will add my voice to those who are indignant / outraged at what the Taliban have done.

Whatever their motives, the few Pakistani people I've read / heard interviewed were really angry about it, angry their kids had been denied an education, fearful they'd be attacked by the Taliban if they spoke out. What an awful situation to be in.

Education seems to have bypassed the Taliban themselves, maybe they are like some kind of Afghani Rednecks who are fearful of books and learning. I think it is yet another demonstration of how much pervasive violence in daily life helps to set back the process of 'civilization' (I use the word in a broad sense, not to imply necessarily the western model)
