Mass poisonings of schoolgirls in Afghanistan have occurred in the past by those who oppose female education. Up to 74 girls fell ill in the most recent attack.

Afghan women have won back basic rights in education, voting and employment since 2001, but fears are growing that such gains could be traded away as Western forces prepare to leave and the Afghan government seeks peace talks with the Taliban.

Just in case some forget who the enemy is and why.
They gas their own women.

Wonder what would have happened if Obama had not continued and escalated the war in Afghanistan after the war in Iraq ended. Also now in Pakistan.

Not making judgments. Just curious.

Is America Broken ?
Yeah, it's broken, and here's just how bad it is;
The American citizen has chosen to be fooled, for lack of better terms. They have decided to enjoy the works of the corrupt politicians as long as it benefits them, however the weight or duration of the entitlement. It's now about, "what can I get", and to hell with the other party.
The trouble with this mindset is the ignorance involved and shared, "get what you want", mentality has to be financed, by someone with a real job !
Here's a great example of ignorance, and greed:
Hypothetically, let's take some nobody Kenyan born, half black man, and raise him in an Islamic environment, during his early years, now add some Socialist and Communist training and mentorship to his already faulty character, for his teen and early adult years, now lets fine tune his anti American, anti Caucasian, anti Capitalist attitude with some law school and community activism for his pre political training years. Spice that up with some trips to Pakistan to meet the minds behind the man, training, now let's add a female racist and anti Caucacian, anti Christain, and anti American to the mix....now we have a devout Islamic jihadist, with behind the scenes backing and financing, from some of the worlds most wealthy Socialist / Communist maggots and he's ready for entry into the American political scene.
But he can't be presented as a Socialist or a Communist and represent either party outwardly, that wouldn't be excepted, so lets register him as a Democrat, the weaker of the two American political parties at the time, then this nobody, who comes from nowhere, is suddenly made popular and charming to the minority community, who desperately need a hero.
Now lets add some greed and power to the mix, the Democatic party, is trying like hell to regain political power in America, it really makes no difference to them who brings them this power, they'll back this individual and rally behind him....regardless of his failed record as a Illinois Senator, or his absent past as an American, or his evident anti American political affiliations prior to his supposed rise through the political ranks, power and greed are the theme for the Dem's, they'd hire anyone....and they did !
It's really no surprise this nobody, came up in the most corrupt political system in America.
Now we have this Socialist / Communist backed muslim as the POTUS, posing as a christian Democrat, and now in 2012, the Dem's finally realize they traded their politcal souls to the devil for power, embarrassed and ashamed they are now playing the blame game, and attempting to save face at the reality of what they've done to America....Now that true American's are awaken to this continuous lie, the only resort the Democratic party has left is, to come up with a voter base of ignorants just as stupid and careless as they were, regarding American's future...ah....Now comes the Illegal immigrants and mindless uncaring, uneducated populace, who care about nothing but free stuff and no accountability.....
Nah.....that could never happen in America ?????
Wow that's original! How many times do you think this delusional crap has been posted?
You're an idiot!

As for Obama, has he waged any wars-by-lies? Outed any CIA agents? Raised taxes on anyone except the top 1%? Suffered any 9-11s?
Try NO. What he's doing is wrestling with the mess you supply-side bozos left behind.
You're shooting blanks, junior. That's why you keep losing elections.

His only "accomplishment" was Obamacare. Democrats who wrote it are calling it a "train wreck".
Besides strangling the private sector and job creation, accelerating the drone program resulting in a deeper animosity towards the US, campaigning or on vacation, exactly what else has he done?
I will try and keep an open mind.
Carol, your mind couldn't be opened with a "Jaws of Life". Obamacare isn't his only accomplishment and while it's not perfect, there's no public option, it's certainly not the "train wreck " you describe . Here's some of his other accomplishments;
Passed the Stimulus: Signed $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in 2009 to spur economic growth amid greatest recession since the Great Depression. Weeks after stimulus went into effect, unemployment claims began to subside. Twelve months later, the private sector began producing more jobs than it was losing, and it has continued to do so for twenty-three straight months, creating a total of nearly 3.7 million new private-sector jobs.
Passed Wall Street Reform: Signed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (2010) to re-regulate the financial sector after its practices caused the Great Recession. The new law tightens capital requirements on large banks and other financial institutions, requires derivatives to be sold on clearinghouses and exchanges, mandates that large banks provide “living wills” to avoid chaotic bankruptcies, limits their ability to trade with customers’ money for their own profit, and creates the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (now headed by Richard Cordray) to crack down on abusive lending products and companies.
Turned Around U.S. Auto Industry: In 2009, injected $62 billion in federal money (on top of $13.4 billion in loans from the Bush administration) into ailing GM and Chrysler in return for equity stakes and agreements for massive restructuring. Since bottoming out in 2009, the auto industry has added more than 100,000 jobs. In 2011, the Big Three automakers all gained market share for the first time in two decades. The government expects to lose $16 billion of its investment, less if the price of the GM stock it still owns increases.
Improved America’s Image Abroad: With new policies, diplomacy, and rhetoric, reversed a sharp decline in world opinion toward the U.S.(and the corresponding loss of “soft power”) during the Bush years. From 2008 to 2011, favorable opinion toward the United States rose in ten of fifteen countries surveyed by the Pew Global Attitudes Project, with an average increase of 26 percent.
Kicked Banks Out of Federal Student Loan Program, Expanded Pell Grant Spending: As part of the 2010 health care reform bill, signed measure ending the wasteful decades-old practice of subsidizing banks to provide college loans. Starting July 2010 all students began getting their federal student loans directly from the federal government. Treasury will save $67 billion over ten years,$36 billion of which will go to expanding Pell Grants to lower-income students.

first of all, Obama being black has nothing to do with it....he's half white, so that should end your mindless debate....secondly, we have a stronger military than the next 13 countries combined (all of which are allies) so if anything can take a cut, it's the military budget, lastly I wish Obama will get all Django Unchained on us all, that;s what we need, a super Liberal, at least that would level the playing field

When did I ever say he was my hero imbecile? He was a brutal dictator who at the height of his brutality was being supported by the Reagan administration. Republican administrations have also supported and even put into power despots like the Shah of Iran and Augusto Pinochet.

Instead of biotching and whining and LAME-(no)brainedly blame gaming like flipping ten year olds.
dems didn't blame bush for his failures in saving us from 911, his actions did, what did he do to prevent it when he was warned we were going to be attacked? NADA, ZERO.

HEY STUPID! There's a huge difference between providing financial and logistical aid and the presence of individuals like Lafayette, Kosciusko and Pulaski to train our troops and sending in our armed forces invade a country. The French fleet did blockade the English at Yorktown but they never sent in ground troops in large numbers.

Unexpected resistance Carol? Sure when foreign troops invade your country, destroy your infrastructure, kill and torture your citizens there's not going to be any resistance at all is there?

NRA, gun dealers await new surge of gun sales in wake of Boston shootout

NRA member Timothy Campbell of Dallas, Texas, says he has called Boston and MIT police departments over a dozen times since the murder of an MIT police officer last Thursday, but neither department has been willing to release the exact brands and models of guns used. While many cite fears that guns like the ones used in acts of terrorism or mass murder will be targeted for stricter regulation or even banning by the government, Campbell, an avid gun collector, says he recognizes that the odds that access to such weapons would be restricted are "essentially zero," he still is eager to purchase the guns as soon as the Tsarnaev weapons are identified. "I don't really know why I want to own them so bad," he said during an interview conducted this morning. "I guess it's probably a penis thing."

An executive with a prominent gun manufacturer said that having one of a company's guns used in an incident of mass murder or terrorism can represent a substantial boon to profits. The executive, who wished his identity and the name of his company to remain anonymous, noted that "the more vicious the crime, the bigger the surge in resulting sales is. When one of our guns was used in the murders at Sandy Hook, our dealers couldn't keep them on the shelves afterwards. We had to add another shift, we were selling so many."

A Boston-area Glock dealer who also wished to remain anonymous agreed. "Having one of our guns used in the shooting of an actual congressperson was probably the best advertisement we ever had. The sales were phenomenal afterwards." He says that while the company urged him to tell prospective buyers that the gun could likely face stricter regulation in the wake of the shooting, "It was nonsense, but I found I didn't even have to. Sure, everybody says those things, but the truth is people just want to own a gun that they know has become infamous. It makes them feel dangerous themselves, and that's what we're in the business of selling."
