Just as CNN did a couple of weeks ago in its report on "Honor" Killings, FoxNews has also taken the PC road to avoid using the terms "muslim" or "Islam" in its report about acid attacks on women in Pakistan.
Saira Liaqat, 26, poses for the camera as she holds a portrait of herself before being burnt, at her home in Lahore. Saira was married to her relative who would later attack her after insistently demanding her to live with him, although the families had agreed she wouldn't join him until she finished school. Saira has undergone plastic surgery 9 times to try to recover from her scars.
This is very sad, because such evil cannot be defeated until we are ready to confront it. By refusing to acknowledge it, we embolden it.

The Russia - Georgia conflict clarified, from the Washington Post:
The Georgian leadership took steps, sometimes against the advice of its allies, sometimes without telling them, that accelerated the advance to a war in which Georgia could never prevail, according to a U.S. account. But the key question -- who finally triggered full conflict? -- remains in dispute. The Georgians said they staged their offensive only after Russian troops began streaming into South Ossetia and the Russians saying they advanced only after the Georgians began attacking South Ossetia's capital, Tskhinvali.
The Kremlin, long angry over Georgia's close ties with the United States and Western Europe, may have been itching for a fight, as Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili has long insisted. If so, Saakashvili facilitated the lopsided matchup. Some Western officials say that although he faced clear provocations, he was reckless. "If it was a trap, and there's good reason to think it was, he walked right into it," one Western diplomat said, speaking on the condition of anonymity.
In Georgia, popular anger against Russia remains high, and Saakashvili has yet to be called to account for the decision to assault Tskhinvali, a small city in which thousands of civilians were forced into their cellars by shelling.
Russian officials say 2,000 people died in Tskhinvali. That figure has been described as inflated by human rights groups. But there unquestionably was a large toll of civilian deaths and injuries, which has outraged Russia and shocked Georgia's Western allies.

Just as America unwittingly backed Islamic militants in their jihad against Serbia, it appears the United States, and most of the Western world, is siding with another savage militant minority.
Unconfirmed, from Russia Today:
The Regnum news agency is reporting that Georgian troops burned down a 10th century Orthodox church while terrified civilians perished inside. The agency quotes eyewitness accounts of the atrocity after all-out fighting in Khetagurovo, a small village near the republic’s capital Tskhinvali.
Almost all of those fighting to defend the village were killed, but the report says the fate of others, mostly women and the elderly, turned out to be even more horrible.
Eyewitnesses report that Georgian tanks literally ran people down and that soldiers took almost all the women to another location. Their fate is still unknown.
Other gruesome details have emerged, via Daily Mail Online:
In another atrocity, innocent villagers were crushed under the tracks of oncoming tanks, claimed Regnum.
Another allegation - again without detail or confirmation - is that locals were cowering in cellars for safety when Georgian forces flooded their hideouts.
Putin was reported to have been told how several girls were locked in a village house before it was set on fire, burning them alive.
'We saw how a tank hit and then drove over the body of an elderly woman who was trying to flee,' one eye-witness was quoted as saying.
'We a saw a body of an 18-month-old baby that had been stabbed to death by Georgians.'
Could America be wrong about this conflict in Georgia? It wouldn't be a surprise. After all, we have been wrong before.

This is the "peace" Islam wants to force on you. For your own future, for the future of your children, watch, learn the truth, and spread this video.
