    Agreed, but many of them are parents. I don't see how massacring children who are most likely muslims themselves would garner any support.

    If there were righteous rebels in the area, I would gleefully sponsor them.

    But there seems to be a shortage of freedom minded righteous rebels in that region of the world.

    I see no point is aiding a people with weaponry or support when there are not clear cut good guys and bad guys.

    I like clear targets and clear reasoning. I'm weird like that.

    They aren't trying to garner support, just remove potential opposition by instilling terror.

    Sunni vs. Shia. Irish vs. English Catholic. Just as stupid when you think about it. Killing over semantics.

    Whatever change goes on over there needs to come from within. We do more harm than good, and our intentions are nefarious.

    But but collateral damage and they hate us because of our freedoms.

    Anyone who actually believed the latter needs to jump off a bridge for the sake of the human gene pool.

    Taliban militants laid siege to a Pakistan school in a brazen hours-long attack on Tuesday, killing more than 100 children

    An atrocity condemned by the White House as "heinous" and "horrific."

    More than eight hours after uniformed militants struck the school, the Pakistani military confirmed the assault was over.

    Officials said that at least 126 lives were lost — and most of the victims were children.

    "The gunmen entered class by class and shot some kids one by one," a student who was in the Army Public School in Peshawar at the time told local media.

    Which is why I think condemnation from the white house is rather hollow. Who knows how many they have killed via sloppy drone strikes? Or other operation for that matter.
