BOMBING IN PAKISTANI MARKET KILLS 15 FOR REALLY NO REASON AT ALL THIS TIME
October 13 2012
Peshawar, Pakistan – When it comes to rebel groups, or terrorist organizations, there are often few weapons to use to further their cause. While people not directly involved in the conflict can debate tactics used, which is often tied to their own particular view of the cause, for the people fighting the battles there are often few choices.
Such groups are of course not nations and thus do not have factories producing guns and ammunition and tanks, leaving them with few options. In recent years one of the standard options for attacks have been and continue to be human bombs, suicide bombers, which all in all have been very effective in accomplishing their task.
Such tools of destruction have been dealt with aggressively, primarily through words, because they are so difficult to defend against. Anyone at anytime can be wearing a bomb and the only way to prevent such incidents from continuing to occur is to punish those who practice it. That technique to defusing the practice has of course been largely ineffective owing, in part, to those who use them living largely outside the law which is likely the case for whomever bombed a market in Pakistan today for some reason or the other that no one can really figure out.
“These Taliban have killed our innocent people in so many attacks. They are still killing our people. Instead of wasting time, we should hit them back, and we should do it as early as possible to save the precious lives of our innocent girls like Malala Yousufzai,” said Provincial Information Minister Mian Iftikhar Hussain. “The government should consider launching a decisive operation against terrorists.”
It’s not clear if the government is considering any such action because it likely won’t do anything at all.
The local Taliban has also targeted that innocent girl, Malala Yousufzai, in separate attack because they don’t like girls talking back to them even when they are 14.
“Clearly this is a bad day for everyone involved. Well, I suppose not the Taliban. It seems they were able to do exactly what they wanted in all of this so for them it has to considered a good day all in all but for everyone else it certain has to suck,” said Scrape TV Terrorism analyst Doug Davids. “I’m not going to even hazard a guess as to what may have prompted this even because with these guys you just never know really. It’s one thing or another or something else entirely but there is usually no solid reason, even in their heads.”
At least 40 people were injured in the attack which isn’t bad, in either direction, for an attack of this nature.
“Clearly things are still going on in Pakistan and that is something they should really make an effort at cracking down on. I mean if they are going to go around and kill people indiscriminately like that then you should really be making some kind of effort to stop them because, well i8t’s just not a good thing to have happen,” continued Davids. “I mean you would hope that they, the government, are at least making an effort. They may be failing but at least they are trying. If they aren’t trying though then they are always going to fail and that sucks.”
The President of Pakistan made statement but no pledge to actually do anything more.
