PS: The conspiracy theorist in me does wonder why they don't do this with all kids injured over there.....maybe other kids are not such prized icons to use as brownie points for our government?
Afraid to say but the natural cynic in me tends to agree with you here.
I'd be amazed if Cameron, or indeed any modern politician given the opportunity, doesn't attempt to use this as some sort of PR exercise to further his personal profile on the world stage and for political gain in general.
Obviously there is a cost consideration but do we hold a moral responsibility to care for those who are caught up in the conflict between 'ourselves' and The Taliban?
Apparently the Pakistan government has stated that they will cover all costs incurred - I just wonder if they would have been so generous if the victim was from a lower social class than Malala?
But I guess that is another discussion?
None of this detracts from my disgust and dislike for The Taliban and my belief that 'we' must oppose them however and whenever 'we' can.
Maybe that sounds bad thinking like that,
I don't think so - perhaps the shallow will see it like that but I'm sure no reasonalble, critical thinking individual will.
