      Killing people with drones if we suspect them of anti-American activities will not.

        Shooting women in the head for trying to empower themselves and using drones are two unrelated things  Or are they?

      the Taliban will just try their best to destroy it, as they don't want a prosperous developed country?

      How do you promote education when the Taliban goes around shooting little girls in the head because they don't believe women should be educated or empowered.

      We could end drone strikes tomorrow and it wouldn't stop the Taliban.

      It's not as if Malala was an Afghan police officer that was killed in retaliation for drone strikes. She was a little girl who wanted to get educated. Her shooting had nothing to do with US drone policy and yet it still happened.

      When we stop putting leaders from the past up on pedestals and ignoring their flaws, we can start seeing our present leaders for what they really are.
