Dateline Afghanistan: Real war on women

 

The Obama re-election campaign spent 2012 ridiculously (but successfully) accusing Republicans of conducting a “war on women.” But a real war on women is being waged in Afghanistan. And it’s a war that will likely spiral out of control if President Obama gets his way.

Obama wants all American troops out of Afghanistan by the end of 2014. A recent Pentagon study makes it clear that the Afghan army isn’t ready to take over and probably won’t be in two years. But the U.S. may leave anyway.

Obama has long advocated “reaching out” to Muslims – and that means women-hating Muslims too. The Obama administration is working with the resurgent Taliban to facilitate a smooth transition in 2014.

International human rights groups predict that women’s rights will be revoked immediately once the U.S. leaves Afghanistan and tribal courts reassert their power. Amnesty International has warned that women’s rights will be “traded away in the transition.”

Three million girls are now in school in Afghanistan thanks to American efforts. And women now make up 20 percent of college graduates. These and many other fragile gains will likely be reversed once U.S. troops leave.

As Obama signals his intention to withdraw troops as soon as possible, women are already under fire. Last summer, Afghanistan’s only female Olympian received numerous death threats. In December, a well-known Afghan women’s advocate was murdered. And there are continued violent attacks against girls who attend school.

The Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission reports that 4,000 cases of violence against women occurred between April and October last year, a 30 percent increase from 2011.

A 2012 Human Rights Watch report found that Afghan women are being arrested for “moral crimes,” such as leaving violent husbands and running away from child marriages.

Too often in the Obama administration, Muslim outreach is merely a synonym for throwing American values overboard.

    Maybe if we started charging women for the crime of being raped, and punishing them with jail time and 100 lashes, the progtards might get their heads out of their asses long enough to wake up and see what’s really going on.

    A raped woman in Ragheadistan can be charged with adultery (if either she or the rapist is married) and stoned to death.

    The rapist gets an all-expense-paid night out with a goat.

    Prepare the Afghan killing fields for women who went to school and anyone who helped Americans.

    I’m going to ask a real mean and nasty question:

    If they kill all their women, won’t that put an end to their breeding?

    Well yes Claudia, but it would require some degree of intellect to come to that conclusion and a aversion to same sex…well, sex I guess.

    You know, on second thought, in a horrible way, that may be a good thing but I do feel very sorry for the young girls and women who have no say in how they wish to live their lives.

    But life is cheap to a Global Socialist/Marxist like Obama.
