(CNN) -- "'God is great,'" the Taliban militants exclaimed, as they roared through the hallways of a school in Peshawar, Pakistan. Then, 14-year-old student Ahmed Faraz recalled, one of them changed the narrative. " 'A lot of the children are under the benches,' " a Pakistani Taliban said, according to Ahmed. " 'Kill them.' " By the time the hours-long siege at Army Public School and Degree College ended early Tuesday evening, at least 141 people -- 132 children plus nine school staff members -- were dead, military spokesman Gen. Asim Bajwa said. More than 100 were injured, many with gunshot wounds, according to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province Information Minister Mushtaq Ghani. The death toll does not include the attackers, who Pakistani Taliban spokesman Mohammed Khurrassani said scaled the school's walls around 10 a.m. (midnight ET), intent on killing older students there. The Taliban had "300 to 400 people ... under their custody" at one point, said Khurrassani, whose group is called Tehreek e Taliban Pakistan, or TTP. But Bajwa said there was no hostage situation, as the attackers' focus was shooting to kill rather than taking captives.
Seems pretty bad, looks like the pasthun talibans are not happy with the pakistani punjabi muslim dominated military operation in their homelands and area's has invited islameic cowardly revenge attacks on innocents as we are all too familiar with these days. http://indianexpress.com/article/world/world-others/pakistan-at-least-30-killed-in-explosion-at-wagah-border-crossing/
I am all for world peace and calling truce with foes, but when it comes to such monsters who are barbaric towards anyone who doesn't follow their way of life, then I am not sure how long such a peace would last? And all this after 12 years of bloodshed and millions of innocent lives lost! Chalo, whatever happens, Guru Sahib sarbat da bhala karan /\
I've been analyzing the situation of the taliban in Afghanistan and how our own Khalistan forces of the past have the same sort of determination and faith when engaging the enemy foe. Obviously we have massive difference in faith / ideology and war/ peace time codes of conduct however we can now see in this corrupt world were the rich get richer and poor get poorer and the major powers of the day do not want to let the smaller nations breath the air of freedom and independence .....only through military force do things change drastically politically and the aggressors are forced to the negotiating table after they have seen they cant win with their foolish violence oppression and state terrorism against the population of a targeted community. The taliban will take over Afghanistan once the Americans and other nato forces leave, its only a matter of time. Looking back at the Khalistan forces they had the same determination to shake off the shackles of the occupying genocidal imperialist power (indian government) but lacked funds, numbers, advanced military training, lack of geo-political allies. The taliban are lucky they have covert supply chains from pakistan's ISI, Russia, Iran, arab / muslim countries, muslim NGO's, have enough numbers (ie indigenous pasthuns of the area), terrain they know well, etc. Just wondered if Sikhs were not located in such a messed up in geo-political set up stemming from the mistakes of 1947 .... Khalistan would have been established by now especially by exercise of arms.
