Massacred in their classroom: More than 100 children killed as Taliban gunmen storm Pakistani school

At least 126 people have been killed, more than 100 of them children, after Taliban gunmen stormed a military school in the north-western Pakistani city of Peshawar, in the worst ever militant attack to hit the troubled region.

It was reported that one suicide bomber blew himself up in a room containing 60 children and a teacher was set on fire in front of pupils, with the children forced to watch.
The attack started with six gunmen, disguised as security guards, entering the 500-pupil school – which has students aged 10 to 18 – in the early hours.

The jihadists shot their way into the building and went from classroom to classroom, shooting at random and picking off students one by one.

    Waiting for the inevitable Mo blame claim that Zionist agents did it to make the Taliban look bad.

    This is just another day in the world of the Mo’s.

    We’ll soon be hearing in the boradcast media cartel (CTV, CBC, Global news) how and why none of these mass murders is related to Islam, and why it is all the West’s fault. And the pro-Islamist print media (The Star, the Globe) will all join in. And to be sue, none of them will condumn this horrendous war crime. To do that would put our media in that strange, rarely-ventured world called human decency.

    Wow just wow. It’s a Beslan type massacre.

    Again, how does slaughtering kids advance their goals or terrorize Pakistan. In fact, the evil is so stupid that it burns. I bet that the gloves will come off and not just against the Taliban but against the ISI/military faction that support the Taliban.

    Killing kuffar and NATO soldiers is one thing but the military’s kids is quite another

      It makes perfect sense to target children. Killing children means families will not rebel/resist/etc. It creates a passive and fearful society. The Taliban are smart………….to target children.

      it won;t happen, packistans entire military culture is islamofacist. moves against radical islam would probably destroy the government.

    • Pakistan is a multi-tiered shit pile of Islamic corruption. Nothing will come of this.

    And the world just shrugs. It is becoming so commonplace to hear and see and read about muslim atrocities around the world and still the politicians bury their heads in the sand.

    The killings in Canada committed by a mentally unstable individual not at all connected to islam. The latest hostage taking in Australia was the work of a mentally unstable make believe imam not at all connected to islam. And so it goes.

    I assume this slaughter will be painted over as not the work of the followers of the “religion of peace” but by a gang of mentally unstable individuals not at all connected to islam.

    I also fully expect the islamic community to do as they always do…Nothing other then play the victim card. The world is against them, violent acts are not part of the Islamic culture.

    Islam is a disgusting bloodthirsty murderous cult. Spawned in the sick mind of an individual some 700 years ago and his followers are with us today. But still the politicians deny that islam is inherently an evil, sick so called religion.

    When will we wake up……..

  • Islam at its finest.

    And everyone will wonder what was the cause.

    This looks to be the work of about a dozen lone wolves.

    I’m Steven Sackur of the BBC and this is the Jews fault.

  • Hard Little Machine

    President Derp Mohammed Obama just ‘condemned’ the attack while not mentioning the Taliban did it, nor indicating who if ‘anyone’ might have done it even though the Taliban have been cheerfully admitting and talking about this all day.

  • Barrington Minge

    My goodness, the Taliban are so brave. What better way to prove your manhood than butchering a load of defenceless kids. You must be so proud of yourselves!!
    After that it’s off to have a great evening with the goats.
