[font=tahoma,geneva,sans-serif][size=4][color=#282828]The announcement comes just weeks after the Afghan government launched a new campaign to immunise more than eight million children between six months and five years old throughout the country. It said it had trained 46,000 volunteers to conduct the campaign which is funded by the American aid agency USAID, the World Health Organisation and Unicef.[/color]

[color=#282828][url="http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/afghanistan/"]Afghanistan[/url], [url="http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/pakistan/"]Pakistan[/url] and Nigeria are the three remaining countries in the world where polio remains a serious threat, but efforts to eradicate the disease have been sabotaged by the Taliban and other Islamic militants who have assassinated immunisation volunteers in all three countries.[/color]

[color=#282828]Eleven polio workers were killed in Pakistan last year, including five women who were shot dead in Karachi in December last year. Earlier this year a police officer protecting vaccination campaigners was shot by motorcycle gunmen in Khyber Pukhtunkhwa. In Afghanistan, a 16 year old girl involved in an anti-polio vaccination campaign in Kapisa province was shot six times in the stomach outside her home last December and died later in hospital.[/color][/size][/font]

These kind of people are just disgusting. They seem intent on bringing the entire world down to their lowly level.

Don't hold your breath, MS are never going to dump those points!


On a more serious note, I don't believe a word the Taliban says. They'll start killing them again just as soon as they feel like it. You can't trust psychopaths.

I find it hard to believe one minute the Taliban believes polio vaccinations are an attempt at sterilisation:

and the next minute are fine with them.

I think drones are an incredibly bad idea, but I'm all for getting drones sent out to these countries and causing the people killing the volunteers as much public pain and misery as possibly, probably through extreme electrocution, so serve as a warning to others that might try to follow in their footsteps.

Problem is, these scum are hiding among innocent people; so those drones are killing far more innocents than terrorists.
