Children of the Taliban

Pakistani journalist Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy travelled to the Swat Valley of Pakistan in February 2009 only three weeks before the Pakistani government ceded the state to Taliban control. In Swat, she met and tried to interview two young girls whose school had been destroyed by Taliban. The interview is interrupted by an impending Taliban attack, mortar fire can be heard in the background. They retreat to the home of one of the girls where the father is interviewed. She also speaks with a 14 year old boy who had been fighting with the Taliban recently.

In Part 2, she speaks with a madrassa teacher who says that Islam can never run out of lambs for sacrifice. How can Islam be defeated when so many with to be martyred for Allah and paradise. A Taliban recruiter is asked if it is permissible to use children as young as five in jihadi operations. He says, "...children are tools to achieve God's will.... so it's fine."

And the current White House resident and closet Muslim, Barack Hussein Obama, wants America to sit 'round the campfire with these guys and talk peace (read surrender.) To paraphrase Sen Grassley, 'I suggest, you know, obviously, maybe [Obama] ought to be removed. But I would suggest the first thing that would make me feel a little bit better toward [him] if [he'd] follow the Japanese example and come before the American people and take that deep bow and say, I'm sorry, and then either do one of two things: resign or go commit suicide.'
