Children among dead in Pakistan bombing

A blast in the city of Quetta in southwest Pakistan killed 11 people and injured 27 more Thursday, police said. Children were among the dead.

A bomb planted in a vehicle near a security checkpoint in the center of town caused the explosion, which wrecked a marketplace and destroyed eight security vehicles, police spokesman Wazir Khan Nasir said.

  1. Children have no rights at all

    The crazy religious people on both sides will say the death of the children can be explained in magical terms to avoid dealing with the harsh truth that there is no magic or supernatural beings or events causing these children to die horrible deaths.
    One side made the bomb and will say the children are martyrs to Allah, the other side will say that their god had a "plan" to kill those children "for the better" and that the children are "in a better place" (so let's not really do anything about it).

    Pakistan continues to allow these terrorist group to operate within their border and yet they target anybody and everybody, the citizens of Pakistan have to demand that their government go after these monsters, with extreme prejudice.

    Pakistanis follow the teachings of Qran very seriously and act accordingly.

    Thousands of children have died & are dying since the invasion of Iraq & Afghanistan in an unceasing cycle of violence.
    The "war on terror' has written a whole new chapter in blood.

    A misconception. Pakistan has sacrificed more than 30'000 civilians, men,women & children and in access of 3000 of their military & counting fighting alongside us. No other 'ally' has done that for us.
    This is what they have to suffer as a consequence. They do not 'allow' this to happen.

    Pakistan has "sacrificed" thousands of Shiites.
    Pakistan has "sacrificed" thousands of Ahmadis.
    Pakistan has "sacrificed" hundreds of thousands of minorities.
    Pakistanis should not be allowed to do this kind of systematic genocide of minorities.
