Taliban to U.S.: End drone strikes in Pakistan, or no more polio vaccines

In other words "we'll cripple our children if you don't stop!"
Islamabad, Pakistan (CNN) -- A Taliban commander in northwest Pakistan has announced a ban on polio vaccines for children as long as the United States continues its campaign of drone strikes in the region, according to a statement by the Taliban.
"Polio drops will be banned in North Waziristan until the drones strikes are stopped," said the statement, released Saturday.
