You know what, whom ever had this idea apparently touched by the “Good Idea Fairy”. We’ve been at war in Afghanistan for nearly 20 years now and the culture has changed very little in these regards. You can’t view every country through the Western Lens. This is not say that I wish less for the women of Afghanistan, but I’ve come to understand that their culture is very, very different from ours. If we intend to ensure that Afghan women are treated as we think they should, then we might as well establish Afghanistan as a US territory; however, that didn’t work out to well for the British nor the Soviets either. I fear that this is worth nothing more than the weight of the ink on the paper.
