The Great War on Terror, Women and Gays
Now that Americans are going to be allowed to see the coffins of their dead soldiers. Maybe somebody will tell them the even harsher truth about The Great War on Terror.
How their soldiers died for NOTHING.
Died to turn Iraq into a fundamentalist Shia state where gays are murdered.
Two gay men were killed in Baghdad's Sadr City slum, a local official said on Saturday, and police said they had found the bodies of four more after clerics urged a crackdown on a perceived spread of homosexuality.
And women are persecuted.
As Islamic fundamentalism seeps into society and sectarian warfare escalates, more and more women live in fear of being kidnapped or raped. They receive death threats because of their religious sects and careers. They are harassed for not abiding by the strict dress code of long skirts and head scarves or for driving cars.
Just like they are in the barbarous Islamic Republic of Afghanistan.
Or how about the even more BRUTAL truth that for women and gays things were better under Saddam.
And that the war in Iraq isn't over.
And the violence will only get worse. Just like it will in Afghanistan. Until the surge of bodies coming home becomes a bloody flood. And the Americans come home with their tail between their legs. With an army as broken as ours.
Oh yeah...I forgot.
If the Con idiot Lawrence Cannon tells you things are getting better.
Shove a burqa in his barrel and tell him to fuck off.
Justice Minister Sarwar Danesh was yesterday dispatched to meet female MPs as part of a snap review ordered by President Hamid Karzai. However, MP Sabrina Saqeb, who attended the meeting, said officials had tried to impose a media blackout and refused to give a timeline for their review, prompting fears it will be buried and forgotten until after the presidential elections in August.
Gawd. The truth stinks eh?
But until it really really HURTS.
The madness will go on and on ....
