Taliban says polio shots are to sterize childred

Today while at the bank the Fox news channel had a banner at the bottom of the screen that read Polio shots for children were continuing in the Swat Valley Afghanistan. They had been outlawed by the Swat Taliban leader because he said that since they were from "foreigners" and secretly trying to sterilize the people. Crazy isn't it? I mean spreading nonsense and false info like that. That would NEVER happen here.

Kurtz: I've seen the horror. Horrors that you've seen. But you have no right to call me a murderer. You have no right to call me a murderer. You have a right to kill me. You have a right to do that, but you have no right to judge me . It's impossible for words to describe what is necessary to those who do not know what horror means. Horror. Horror has a face, and you must make a friend of horror. Horror and mortal terror are your friends. If they are not, then they are enemies t o be feared. They are truly enemies.

I remember when I was with Special Forces--it seems a thousand centuries ago--we went into a camp to inoculate it. The children. We left the camp after we had inoculated the children for polio, and this old man came running after us, and he was crying. He couldn't see. We went there, and they had come and hacked off every inoculated arm. There they were in a pile--a pile of little arms.

And I remember...I...I...I cried, I wept like some grandmother. I wanted to tear my teeth out, I didn't know what I wanted to do. And I want to remember it, I never want to forget. And then I realized--like I was shot...like I was shot with a diamond...a diamond bullet right through my forehead. And I thought, "My God, the genius of that, the genius, the will to do that." Perfect, genuine, complete, crystalline, pure. And then I realized they could stand that--these were not monsters, these were men, trained cadres, these men who fought with their hearts, who have families, who have children, who are filled wi th love--that they had this strength, the strength to do that. If I had ten divisions of those men, then our troubles here would be over very quickly. You have to have men who are moral and at the same time were able to utilize their primordial i nstincts to kill without feeling, without passion, without judgment--without judgment.

They should've released the batches of vaccine for Taliban testing before they started vaccinating kids. That's the only way to know that it isn't sterilizing kids.

To tell the truth I was really poking at death camp thing. The Taliban are using fear of sterization and here in the USA we talk about death camps.
