Thread Name: BS: Iraqi women and the Koran
Subject: RE: BS: Iraqi women and the Koran
Well, the USA both established the Taliban in Afghanistan (in place of the Russians and their surrogates) and later went to war against the Taliban...when they proved uncooperative regarding an oil route from the Caspian. So what did it all have to do with the rights of Afghani women? Nada. It had to do with strategic interests. Therefore, I think Dianavan's concern over the women's plight is understandable, but it doesn't reflect much on American military policy one way or another. The USA does not invade countries in order to free persecuted women, Doug. :-)
So, what was your point again?
