Sorry--been away from the computer lately...
Jelly--Spanner posted the link I found it on.
I don't really think this is the issue anymore. I have been following the Taliban rule in Afganistan since 98, not because of Bin Laden, I didn't even know who he was really, but because of the human rights violations carried out on women. No one doubts that these were extreme fundamentalists who abused their religious and political power on their own people.
Do you think it's fair that someone point a gun at your head because you don't believe in Allah? Do you think it's fair that women in Afghanistan are treated with less dignity than livestock?
The point is, things are not over--but no one is talking about what's happening in Afganistan, and it's obvious our troops could be in serious trouble if they get caught off from the rest of the forces. That's bad news indeed.
