I wake this morning to Rick's post via Michelle about a school girl attacked in Afghanistan...her crime being that she wants to go to school.

KABUL–A victim of an acid attack on schoolgirls in Afghanistan says she is determined to stay in school even if that means risking death.
The girl, who gave her name as just Shamsia, was the most seriously injured of a group of girls attacked outside their school by unidentified men in the southern city of Kandahar on Wednesday.
"I'll continue my schooling even if they try to kill me. I won't stop going to school," Shamsia said from her bed at a Kabul military hospital.
Shamsia, 17, suffered damage to one of her eyes when the men pulled off the girls' head scarves and threw acid in their faces...
origional report from Canada
And this follows my last report from Iraq.
We are dealing with a sub-human enemy is this war on terror. One day the ultimate solution is for the Muslim peoples of the world to decide that the madness of radical Islam has run it's course.
Until then...we will kill them...the radicals...and we will know the people at large have decided that enough is enough...when they turn on the radicals and expose them...regardless of their fears.
That is xtnyoda's prayer...for the likes of Shamsia...a real hero for humanity.
