Taliban terrorists carried out a brutal attack on a military run primary school in Northern Pakistan. At least 145 people were killed. Almost all of them were students. “According to the BBC World Service, the attack is believed to be an attempt to demoralize and humiliate the military. However, it may have the unintended effect of finally uniting the nation against the groups that have claimed tens of thousands of lives in Pakistan in the last 15 years.”
