    2014 Peshawar school attack: 141 Dead

    The TTP have struck a school in Peshawar killing a number of children. Very unfortunate and tragic.

    BBC reports that Taliban spokespersons have told the agency that the strike follows the aggressive operations under taken by the Pakistan Army to rout militants from northwest Pakistan. "Hundreds of Taliban fighters are thought to have died in a recent military offensive in North Waziristan and the nearby Khyber area," reports BBC.

    According to a government spokesperson who spoke to ARY news the assailants entered the school wearing army fatigues.

    Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), incidentally, were also behind the attack on Malala Yousafzai....

    Cheers!...on the rocks!!

    The dead toll seems to have gone above 100, with 84 children dead.
    This is insane.

    At first I just shook my head. Then I imagine the bodies and it wrenches the heart.

    Militants attack Peshawar school; 126 dead

    122 killed are kids.

    The Taliban have claimed responsibility for the attack.

    This is a Pakistani 26/11 by Pakistanis themselves.

    Sad indeed, they tasted their own medicine and hope the nation recovers from this loss and wakes up the reality of terrorism in their country rather than blame India for alll of their misfortunes. Kids shouldn't have been involved in this, their army would have been justified,but not innocent kids.

    Why would they deliberately kill so many little children?

    I literally can't think of anything the Taliban could have done that would alienate their Pakistani supporters faster.

    Attacking the Pakistani army or government would have been understandable, blowing up a marketplace would have been cowardly and indiscriminate, but intentionally targeting children just seems indefensible.

    Their barbarism knows no bounds.

    160+ dead, most of them kids. It is times like this when I wish I believed in the concepts of hell and eternal hellfire for the rabid dogs who did this.

    I would like to see what the TTP apologists in Pakistan say now

    What you give is what you get... that's the concept Pakistan would never learn.

    They cheered when innocents died in the similar attack in India in 26/11.

    160 kids. That's a lot of future Engineers, Doctors, Scientists, Agriculturists, Humanitarians, Billionaires murdered. I know the PA is capable, I just wish they put an end to all of these mindless killings.

    What's more painful is to see Pakistani's still believing that India/RAW is the behind all this. Just when India was trending #IndiawithPakistan they are trending #StopIndianterrorismInPakistan. Man will they even learn their sins have come back to haunt them.. As much as I am against the violence against anyone anywhere when Kurdish girls and women were raped and sold in Black market there was not even a peep either from Indian side nor in Pakistan. I am with the families of the kids that lost their lives and pray they went to a better place , but if Pakistani's don't learn a lesson and want to blame us, god save them
