And they boarded a bus full of other children to get to her, so 2 others were injured as well. IMO, the US needs to tell Pakistan to get rid of the Taliban, and until they do, all aid is shut off. This is another great example as to why the US needs to write Pakistan off and say see ya, and kiss our ass you all are on your own. I would think the fact that they knew Osama was there, and did nothing, and never told us he was there. Obama should of wrote them off then, but he did not. Now the Taliban tried to kill a child just cause she spoke up, and all she wants is to go to school. Did the Taliban honestly see a threat in a 14 yr old girl? Seriously?! And if Pakistan really wants to get rid of the Taliban, let our military in there, clean up and take out the trash.

I think these things are usually much more complicated than we like to think. I do feel horrible for the girl and her friends, and actually all females in that part of the world. It makes our problems sound so menial.
While I agree that we don't have a place in many of these countries and I do not think I would support just going in to another country at this point to get involved in their affairs, we are in a place of obligation to countries that we have invaded. I know many of them don't want us there, but don't we have an obligation to help rebuild, restructure and do what we promised for the people that have supported our efforts on their behalf? Or is it okay to go blow a bunch of stuff up in their country, throw their systems in to chaos and say 'your welcome' and then blow town? Not speaking about other invasions, but what are our responsibilities to the people we have already invaded?

Even if all the people who identify as Taliban were killed - you cannot kill the idea and yo run the risk of making them martyrs.
