ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — Christians in a Pakistani town beset by pro-Taliban militants sought government protection Wednesday, the eve of a deadline for them to convert to Islam or face violence.
About 500 Pakistani Christians in Charsadda, a town in the North West Frontier Province bordering Afghanistan, received letters earlier this month telling them to close their churches and convert by Thursday or be the target of “bomb explosions.”
Several Christians, a tiny minority in the predominantly Muslim country, have fled town and others are living in fear, community leaders said.
And why haven’t the coalition forces bombed the hell out of the Taliban? Since when did we stop fighting these a-holes in Afghanistan? Where is our intelligence? Why are we so wussified to political diplomacy? BOMB THEM, and call it a day.
