An example of anti-American Pakistani idiocy

August 9, 2007 at 4:22 am (Idiots, Pakistan)

Want to know just how insane (and insanely anti-American) some Pakistanis are?

There was a drive to administer polio vaccine to children in Pakistan. One of the regions to which health workers went was Bajaur, a district in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas, which has been a significant problem for Pakistan because of its support for Islamist militancy and Islamist militants.

The polio drive was recently canceled after health workers were attacked by villagers. The villagers threatened to kill them if they returned. Villagers, tribal elders, and religious leaders all condemned and refused the polio drive, claiming that the polio vaccine was a Western (that is, American) conspiracy to sterilize the region’s people as a way to destroy Islam.

Really, parodying these people cannot come close to how ridiculous the truth is.
