As Juan Cole says this morning, there should be “a special place in hell for the Taliban in Qandahar who threw acid on the faces of two schoolgirls in Qandahar.” Aljazeera English reports that the tactic emptied the girl’s school that they attended.

As Juan points out, while the Aljazeera reporters were working on this story, a blast from a suicide bomber killed 6 and wounded 42. They caught the aftermath of this blast on the film.

    I’m horrified.
    I think that Juan Cole’s statement echoes my own pretty much.

    Yes, Barbara, the horrific things that still go on in the name of religion are beyond belief, but there they are. One wonders what it would take to drag those guys screaming into the real world. Probably not possible.
