Anyone who has a heart and a soul would find it challenging to not have tears well up in their eyes upon seeing the anguish on this young girl’s blood-spattered face; a young girl who was targeted not once, but twice by evil. But Taliban militants have no hearts or souls, so they would probably look at her photos and be filled with joy, rather than sorrow, after all they just killed her mother. I’m sure they would have been happier had they killed the daughter, too, since they don’t care who they happen to murder. Be it man, woman or child. It’s the more the merrier mentality of pathetic serial killers, which is what they are.
What is incredibly sad is that the pair had already been wounded by a suicide bombing earlier in the day in downtown Karachi. 22 people were blown to bits when a suicide bomber on a motorcycle detonated his bomb in the midst of a group of Shiite Muslims. Knowing that the wounded would be taken to the Jinnah hospital, militants coordinated another suicide attack in the midst of the ambulances, which is when the young girls mother was blown up along with 11 or so others. It’s apparently something they enjoy doing, it’s what’s called the ‘herding’ tactic, whereby terrorists will bomb one place to get survivors to another place that has also been set up to be bombed:
And, horrifyingly, it was the second time today that such a method was used.
Earlier today, in Iraq, a twin car bombing targeted a crowd of Shi’ite pilgrims as they walked to the holy city of Karbala, south of Baghdad, for a major religious ceremony.
Like the bombings in Karachi, the attackers struck twice – using one bomb to herd their victims in place for another.
The first explosion, a parked car bomb, sent throngs of pilgrims running down the highway – and straight into the path of a suicide car bomber.
The crowds made it difficult for ambulances to get to the wounded, another police official said.
If that’s not evil, I have no clue what is. This is what we are dealing with, and until we come to terms with the fact that this is a war on terror, that we are fighting devious, horrific people who care nothing about the sanctity of life, whether it is Muslim or non-Muslim, and that we can’t ‘deal’ with conscienceless, soulless, heartless killers, we will never prevail.
I gain great comfort in knowing that these murderers will rot in hell- no 72 virgins for those cowards. I can only hope that they will see the faces of all those they have butchered in an endless loop, for eternity.
