  1. This is the long-term fruit of “fighting Communism” in the region, three and four decades ago. What the fruit will be of our treatment of prisoners of war beggars imagination.

  2. This is so far beyond the pale that its really hard to understand why it would be done. The people know who these people are

  3. I don’t see any difference between the Taliban/Al Queda/ISIS…and the GOP. All have extremist religious views and all prefer their citizens ignorant

  4. They say timing is everything and it makes me wonder was this date picked for a reason

    Now one would think the Pakistani army and intelligence sources will stop playing both sides and finally declare war on the Pak-Taliban and if that happens they been there before

    Today is also the 43rd anniversary of Pakistan’s surrender to India in the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971, which may be why this attack was carried out today
