Abstract business background.

 

This two day update is the result of studying the attack on the Bacha Khan University in Charsadda, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (of which Peshawar is the provincial capital).

 



INDIAN SUBCONTINENT

Pakistan

* Once again, the "valiant warriors" of the nearly washed-up "Pakistani Taliban" demonstrated their "manhood" with yet another attack on unarmed men, women and children at a university named for a devout pacifist, killing 22 and wounding at least 23, on January 20th.

That must have been tough work for "men of renown".

Kudos go out to Pakistani security forces, who responded as quickly and possible, and chased down and killed the animals-dressed-as-men, who had dispersed throughout the university complex.

Terrorists, by their very nature, are cowards. Every one of them.
