Re: “Taliban shoot girl, 14, over education ban” (TNT, 10-10).

Shame on the Taliban for waging war on children.

Shame on the Pakistani government for allowing religious lunatics the run of the country.

Shame on the Pakistani people for allowing an ineffective and corrupt government to remain in power.

Shame on the Islamic clergy for allowing their religion to be hijacked by fringe groups that have no respect for life.

Shame on the Pakistani people for rioting over a film and standing by at the attempted murder of their future.

Shame on the rest of the world for not making their disgust known.

Shame on the United States for supporting the Pakistani government.

Think back to the reign of terror imposed on the world by the Nazi Party. Twelve years of worldwide chaos followed. Have we not learned our lessons?
