Taleban allow polio vaccinations to resume

September 24, 2007

BBC Reports that the Afghan Taleban ‘to honour polio drive’.  Well isn’t that good of them.  They’re the ones who in the past have been spreading the lie that the polio vaccine made Muslims sterile, or caused AIDS or tuberculosis.  We should be completely done with polio by now.  But the Taleban are directly responsible for the fact that Afghanistan is one of only a few places on Earth where polio has not been wiped out. 

Wonder what changed their minds?

    I think I could say a thing or two to the Taleban.

    Guy, don’t wish it on anyone.  I know whereof I speak.

    An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.
