    Default Taliban oppression poster girl unveils new nose

    And THIS is why coalition troops are in Afghanistan!

    A woman who became the poster girl of Taliban oppression in Afghanistan after being mutilated by her husband has unveiled her new face to the world.
    The image of Aisha, 19, without a nose, prompted a worldwide outpouring of sympathy after it appeared on the cover of Time Magazine accompanying an article highlighting the plight of women in Afghanistan.
    Full article here.
    If you continue to elect idiots in elections, don't be surprised when the result is an idiotic government.

    Don't bother.

    The suicidal marxists who post on politics.ie don't care about the plight of women in Afghanistan because if they supported killing the primitive Taliban savages that would be racist and Islamophobic and would mean they would have to cheer on the U.S. and admit that Bush was right all along about killing the pukes.

    They are still smarting that the Soviets lost in Afghanistan which is why they delight in telling us all how the CIA created the Taliban and smile inside when Islamic wingnut terrorists behead aid workers because it means America is embarrassed.

    Some of them would probably put Al-Qaeda terrorists in their box room if it meant there could be a massacre on Grafton Street so they could wag their finger at Cowen and scream I told you so over Shannon Warport.

    They would probably volunteer to be beheaded if it embarrassed U.S.

    Every war is a quagmire and another Vietnam to these morons.

    I heard native Americans also chop off women's noses if they are unfaithful. Is the US going to invade Native American tribal territories now?

    Pretty girl gets new western nose – propaganda loaded with metaphor nothing more. Wouldn't have happened an older or less alluring woman.

    American troops in Afghanistan is nothing to do with women's rights. Read history and stop falling for silly stunts on both sides. It's about power and wealth.

    Power and wealth.

    And the most powerful nations in the world now hide behind her image, daring you to question them, for the logic of advancing celebritised victims (carried out by the enemy) is that questioning them is condoning what happened to her or some such zero-sum logic.

    What about the Afghans who were killed so their fingerbones could be collected by US troops? Or the people dodging robowars drone attacks in that country today? The US is against wikileaks because it might release information like that video massacre a while back, the struggle to control what you are allowed to know and see and believe they see as a part of the war effort.

    The West in their negotiations with the Taliban would drop women's rights issues like a stone if it meant that their geopolitical objectives in being there could be met, as they did in Iraq.....

    IRAQ: Women were more respected under Saddam, say women's groups

    According to the findings of a recent survey by local rights NGOs, women were treated better during the Saddam Hussein era – and their rights were more respected – than they are now.

    "We interviewed women in the country and met with local NGOs dealing with gender issues to develop this survey, which asked questions about the quality of women's life and respect for their rights," said Senar Muhammad, president of Baghdad-based NGO Woman Freedom Organisation. "The results show that women are less respected now than they were under the previous regime, while their freedom has been curtailed."
    Tis no wonder former Afghan MP Malala Joy has condemned the Western invasion of her country, she contends that Afghanistan was starting to make progress for women's rights when the US attacked. When you bring war you reduce women's status to the minimum value at a stroke, that's one of the first effects of warfare.

    ZCommunications | Malalai Joya by Johann Hari | ZNet Article

    "I realized women's rights had been sold out completely... Most people in the West have been led to believe that the intolerance and brutality towards women in Afghanistan began with the Taliban regime. But this is a lie. Many of the worst atrocities were committed by the fundamentalist mujahedin during the civil war between 1992 and 1996. They introduced the laws oppressing women followed by the Taliban - and now they were marching back to power, backed by the United States. They immediately went back to their old habit of using rape to punish their enemies and reward their fighters."
