Relatives of a student, who was injured during an attack by Taliban gunmen on the Army Public School, outside Lady Reading Hospital in Peshawar

Taliban gunmen stormed a school in the Pakistani city of Peshawar on Tuesday, killing 141 people — mostly children — in an atrocity that may have been unleashed partly as revenge for a young Pakistani activist being awarded the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize.

The brutal attack, carried out by gunmen from the militant group Tehreek-e-Taliban, which is trying to overthrow the government, sent dozens to hospitals as terrified parents searched for their kids.

A military source said the attackers were wearing police uniforms and suicide vests, NBC News reported.

“They burnt a teacher in front of the students in a classroom,” the source said. “They literally set the teacher on fire with gasoline and made the kids watch.”

Jamshed Khan, a school bus driver, said: “We were standing outside the school and firing suddenly started and there was chaos everywhere and the screams of children and teachers.”

    Paging Joe Biden who stated more than once…”the Taliban are not our enemies…”Also, what say you Carl Levin ,Feinstein, and the rest of the cabal who produced the “torture “political construct that our Media salivated over. Let us not overlook the mentor of smart power ,global villages and self esteem for our perceived enemies ,Hillary Bimbo slayer, Clinton. However, President 44 when not vacationing, watching ESPN, master of the Islam religion and the 57 states of America ,what do you really say about the slaughter of children -you purport to cherish in every action and laws you make- to the grieving parents who are in shock from a “…revenge attack..” based on the Nobel Peace prize award.

    When is enough is enough concerning these pathogenic tumors.

    I know, every time your hear …

    “… Al Akhbar !!!”

    … you think of peace

    No you don’t .. you look for the nearest exit

    Only eight days prior to the horrendous slaughter of children and school staff in Pakistan, Barack Obama released Pakistani Taliban leader, the second in command of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP). This is the exact group claiming responsibility for today’s massacre in Peshawar, leaving 141 dead.

    And yet, Malala remains a devout Muslim.

    You’ll have to “do the math” yourselves, because she obviously can’t.
