If I had a rocket launcher

Why can the Taliban still get away with this?

[I]n the guerrilla war that has unfolded across southern and eastern Afghanistan, the Taliban have made schools one of their special targets.


“Don’t Let Your Daughters Go to School,” one of [the posters] said.
I have a daughter. She might say something like this.
“The people who did this,” [Shamsia] said, “do not feel the pain of others.”
They need to feel their own pain.

Here's the difference between me and the wingnut. I'd hurt, severely, the perpetrators, but I wouldn't hurt all the other people - i.e. other Muslims - who look a little like the perps.
