Career Day... Waziristan style

I've heard of aggressive recruiting at school job fairs, but this one takes the cake...

A Pakistani policeman and an Islamic militant leader have been killed in a shoot-out at a private school in the north-western town of Tank, police say.

Another militant was said to have been arrested, while a third was wounded in the clash at the Oxford Public School.

Police say firing broke out after the militant leader, Ehsan Barqi, threw a grenade at them when they tried to stop him addressing students at the college.
Most folks have heard of "Freedom 55."

I guess these guys, just had to show off their centrepiece retirement plan... "Virgins 72".

Throwing a grenade eh? Whatever happened to "hell no I won't go"?

in pakistan and much of the islamic world, the credo is now, "hell yes, i'll kill your ass."

of course... their mouths are writing cheques their bodies can't cash.

I for one would love to live in a town called "Tank". (As long as it wasn't a tank town, of course.) You can see why they're so warlike. Imagine going through high school cheering, "Go, Tanks, go!"

you should know, and i swear to god it's true, the national sport of the pashtoons in afghanistan and i assume waziristan as well, is bushkazi... a combination of polo and aussie rules football... played with the corpse of a decapitated calf.

fun people... lots of school spirit, i'm guessing
