Suffer the little children

Evil is the only word to describe people who target innocent children:

Pakistan has begun three days of mourning for the 132 children and nine school staff massacred by the Taliban in the country’s deadliest ever terror attack.

The 141 people were killed when insurgents stormed an army-run school in the northwestern city of Peshawar and systematically went from room to room, shooting children during an eight-hour killing spree.

The attack, claimed by the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) as revenge for a major military offensive in the region, sparked worldwide condemnation and led the Pakistani government and military to reaffirm their determination to defeat a group that has killed thousands since 2007.

Teenage survivor Shahrukh Khan, who ducked below his desk with classmates when four gunmen burst into their room, described how he played dead after being shot in both legs, stuffing his tie into his mouth to stifle his screams.

“I saw a pair of big black boots coming towards me, this guy was probably hunting for students hiding beneath the benches,” the 16-year-old said from the trauma ward of the city’s Lady Reading Hospital.

“The man with big boots kept on looking for students and pumping bullets into their bodies. I lay as still as I could and closed my eyes, waiting to get shot again,” he said.

“My body was shivering. I saw death so close and I will never forget the black boots approaching me – I felt as though it was death that was approaching me.”

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif announced three days of national mourning and described the attack as a “national tragedy unleashed by savages”. . .

In the past children might have been hurt or injured as a result of war but this targeting of them is a relatively new and sickening development.

Nothing justifies the wanton slaughter of innocent children.

  1. It’s a dirty dirty war that has dragged on for sooo long that few people can remember or understand it. Some of the reports are disturbing to say the least.

    Remember this…

    “Obama traded a deserter, a US soldier who went AWOL to join the jihad, for five senior Taliban commanders”

    “Many of the soldiers and officers fighting the Taliban have their children in this school so this is an attempt to demoralise the military”

    It is only going to get worse unless people wise up

    Read the reports

    We are well down the road to WW3

    Get prepared!!!


  2. “Only eight days prior to the horrendous slaughter of children and school staff in Pakistan, Barack Obama released Pakistani Taliban leader, the second in command of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP). This is the exact group claiming responsibility for today’s massacre in Peshawar, leaving 141 dead.”

    This is very sad. It is a strange world indeed that we can fly to the moon, look deep into space, change a person’s heart, help a person hear again and yet, we still have not remedied the human soul that wants to inflict pain on someone else for the pain that was received.

    This has been declared and act of revenge sourced out of hurt that has turned to bitterness and then to hate.

    We live in world ruled by Satan and his servants

    But don’t kid yourself that the so called “good guys” don’t have the blood of innocents on their hands because they do – and by many orders of magnitude higher than this atrocity and we close our eyes to this or pretend that it is in some way justified.

    Like the first commenter on this thread I believe the next World War is on the way and also that in this life humanity will never find peace

    Rather that after our leaders, for the most part self serving, arrogant, power seekers have blundered into an overwhelming catastrophe the people who survive will do everything to maintain the hard won peace but those born after will forget and the mistakes of our fore fathers will be repeated ad infinitum.


  5. Andrei and David get it in one
