    The eastern world, it is exploding, violence flaring bullets loading. you are old enough to kill , but not for voting, this whole crazy world is just to frustrating, and you tell me over and over and over again my friend, you don't believe we are on the EVE of DESTRUCTION.


    Never approach a bull from the front, A horse from behind, or a fool from any direction.

    Well, some this and some say that. *Certainly food for thought.

    Fact is they don't want these young woman in school and it is logical that someone wanted to deter them from going. Whether it be the Taliban or not. If they wanted to kill them they could have but they got their message by fear.

    Who ? Where's the evidence ? Was there actually any physical poisoning at all ? Suppose I said that a US soldier did it out of revenge for the arrest of his murdering buddy ?

    An American soldier went on a house-to-house shooting spree in two villages in southern Afghanistan early Sunday, Afghan officials said, killing 16 people in what Afghanistan's president called an "unforgivable" crime.

    Wouldn't you ask for evidence ?

    Kidnapped Chibok schoolgirl rescued in Nigeria
    Jan. 5, 2018 -- One of the schoolgirls abducted in 2014 by the Islamist group Boko Haram has been rescued, according to a Nigeria military official.
    The Nigerian Army on Thursday announced on Twitter the girl is with troops and is safe and receiving medical attention.

    The girl is one of more than 270 kidnapped by the group from a school in the town of Chibok. She was rescued more than 100 miles from Chibok in Pulka, in northern Borno state. The military identified the girl as Salomi Pagu and said she was found with a girl named Jamila Adams who is about 14, and another child for whom the military did not list a name or age. Adams and the other child were not identified as being part of the Chibok group.


    Wife of the Vice President of Nigeria, Oludolapo Osinbajo (C) consoling one of the 21 released Chibok girls in Abuja, Nigeria, in October 2016. On Thursday, Nigeria military announced another schoolgirl who was abducted by the Islamist group Boko Haram was rescued.

    More than 100 of the kidnapped girls are still being held by Boko Haram and their whereabouts unknown. On the day they were captured, about 50 escaped. A group of 21 were freed in October 2016 after negotiations with Boko Haram. In August, a top commander of Boko Haram confessed to leading the abduction of schoolgirls and surrendered to the Nigerian army. In September, more than 100 were reunited with their families in the capital Abuja.

    Officials suspect their classrooms were sprayed with a toxic chemical by militants who oppose education for girls.

    why doesn't Afghanistan want their children educated?

    Offer a pipeline out of the country for their girls and women. Some will take it, some will not. Vet the $#@! out of them . Then as they grow into women introduce them to all the nice guys in modern cultures being dissed by their cultures women for "bad boys".
    Win , win. With the bonus that they will not be able to breed as quickly.
