I seriously don't know what to do with the rage and hatred I feel towards the attackers at times like this! My heart goes out to all of the loved ones. This is so unimaginably horrific. It sounds supremely selfish to say this, and it isn't meant to at all, but this will completely depress me for days.

Fucking children for Christ's sake ! Sick bastards !

I am so very very sad after reading about this sad

Those poor babies, the terror they must have felt. It just defies all logical thought, only barbaric animals could do this to children. Disgusting.

I'm lost for words - there really is no limit to the horrors to which humanity can lend itself is there?

TheWomanTheyCallJayne Tue 16-Dec-14 11:09:30

I never know what to say to such things
I wanted to comment though so it doesn't seem like only five people care enough to comment.

I just feel so sickened and angry and useless

It could be just because what can you say? It's sick really.

Maybe this is the straw that breaks the camels back with regards to the Taliban over there and they lose support. I hope so anyway.

MarjorieMelon Tue 16-Dec-14 11:13:17

I agree Mintyy.

The awful thing is there is nothing that we as individuals or as country can do to stop this happening. It will continue happening time and time again.

I hate everyone who sympathises with their twisted ideology. It is sickening.

Nancy66 Tue 16-Dec-14 11:15:07

it's heartbreaking and I don't know where you even begin to tackle this problem.

Little ones as young as five. Sickening.

TheCountessofFitzdotterel Tue 16-Dec-14 11:17:15

There are no words.

LordJabuJabu Tue 16-Dec-14 11:20:45

Awful, just awful.

MarjorieMelon Tue 16-Dec-14 11:22:24

I have no idea where you start to resolve this problem. I've said for years that war is not the answer but how do you negotiate with the Taliban? Who would want to negotiate with the dirty twisted sick animals that they are?

My feeling is that as time goes on the West will leave them to it because western intervention has only made it worse. The Taliban problem will be for countries like Afghanistan and Pakistan to deal with. The Taliban and organisations like them will grow stronger and people who have the misfortune of being born there will have to live under their rule. It's very sad but nobody has any answers.

Poor, poor children and parents, how will they ever cope. May the perpetrators rot in hell.

26Point2Miles Tue 16-Dec-14 11:24:54

There are certainly people out there who condone these actions. Feel it's a big big battle which will certainly get worse and escalate

So sorry for those poor poor people

Rosa Tue 16-Dec-14 11:25:51

They picked on the weak and defenseless. There is no justifying this for any religion or belief.

Roonerspism Tue 16-Dec-14 11:26:07

I have stopped looking for the "why". What is the mindset of people who think this will help any cause?

I'm not religious - I am anti-religious - but at times like these all I can do is cry and send a spiritual message of hope and comfort to those affected.

ExitPursuedByABear Tue 16-Dec-14 11:30:26

Murdering bastards.

mupperoon Tue 16-Dec-14 11:33:40

Fucking evil cowards. Times like this I almost wish there were a Hell. I can't see any virgins being assigned to these cunts.

Those poor children, and their families.

Seriouslyffs Tue 16-Dec-14 11:33:54

A Mumsnetter recently suggested all Afghani women and children should have asylum status here. Fucking Taliban's reach is scary.

It also puts into the context the few atrocities we have here in the west which are imo often just lone loonies rather than dangerous 'sane' ideologues.

dollius Tue 16-Dec-14 11:38:08

What on earth is the rationale for something like this? Even in the twisted minds of Taliban? They oppose education? They want revenge on the Pakistani army by killing their children? What??? Utterly horrendous.

Bowlersarm Tue 16-Dec-14 11:39:10

What is there to say sad.

How can you deal with people who target children? Awful.

500Decibels Tue 16-Dec-14 11:52:53

My cousin's children are at an army school in Pakistan but thankfully not that one.
It's just so horrendous. I just hope that all the Taliban sympathisers out there wake up now and realise how evil and despicable they are.

TroelsNextCampaignManager Tue 16-Dec-14 12:26:54

My heart goes out to the adults and children caught up in this awful tragedy. Like rooner, I don't do religion per se but will light a candle and say a small prayer.

BBC News had a commentator who basically said the Taliban won't negotiate because they don't want to meet anyone halfway. It's their way or death. So that doesn't leave the other parties much choice.

The people need to be the change. The people need to reject this and realise that it could so easily be them and theirs who are in the wrong place at the wrong time. The people need to realise they do have the power to reject the Taliban's ideology and violence - easier said than done, I know.

BingBongSongEveryDamnDay Tue 16-Dec-14 12:34:08

I don't know what anyone could hope to achieve with this. If there is a hell, I hope they are in it.

Dolallytats Tue 16-Dec-14 12:34:26

I just read this-those poor children. I don't know what else to say.
