Young Woman Shot by Taliban Recovering

She is very brave, great to hear that Malala is recovering. It is appalling that she - a young teenage girl - was shot by the Taliban for promoting something that is a basic human right, education for girls. Very intelligent, she and her family are dedicated to the cause of promoting education, even at great personal risk. Amazing dedication. The Taliban hoped to silence Malala, but instead their appalling action has given more attention to her cause globally, beyond her native Pakistan. You can click here for the story.

It is worth remembering too, the Taliban was essentially the creation of the United States, funded and supported by the American government to fight communists in Afghanistan during the 1980s. Today, the results of this realpolitik are painfully clear.
