My heart was made heavy by watching this episode of Vice news on HBO. I'm talking about episode 8.

HBO

Warning to you very empathetic type this is going to make you feel sick for the first ten minutes. The video goes into gruesome detail about he abuse of women.

This is so gross. I think maybe we should just go back in there and spend what we have to.

Do we just sit back and watch idle?

I mean at least the government of Nigeria can fight Boko Haram, the women in Afghanistan have no one to fight for them.

Yes yes

The question is

What the hell are we doing there creating mujahideens in 70s and 80s fostering extremism

To fight the soviets

Who only entered once CIA entered to make sure people don't vote for popular communist party

Ah

Things look so different when you have knowledge of history and who did what when

Notice how she says the Afghanistan women were held in higher status back in the 70s and 80s. Also where she says the Quran does not justify this type treatment of women..

I suppose stoning and caning does not count !

If I had to bet the change in the society and its' treatment of women was exported there by Saudi Arabia and the Wahhabi believe system spreading around the world with their petrol dollar built and funded Mosque.

I agree Saudi Arabia has the biggest roll to play in all this.

We have to first fix our own problems and we have to lead by example.

I'm not sure what was in the video but we have a horrendous track record right here at home.

We're in no position to "help" nor lecture anyone else.

The statistics from rape to physical violence and murder are absolutely staggering.

We blame their violence on their religion. Whats our excuse?

Yes and we've all heard about the Syrian Rape Prisons too. Iraqi's like killing incubator babies and Iran was the throne of all things evil, specifically along some axis of sorts.

If you took the morning news from 25 random U.S. States and picked one story from each, you can easily make an HBO documentary of America being a culture of murder and that's not even using news stories from major cities.


Everything in context.

I can't even think of watching the video as I am too empathetic, but I do want to say that God gave men power and position over women, but it would be a mistake for men to abuse this, as God's personal name (in Hebrew grammar) is 'feminine singular'.

Yes, women and girls are treated very badly in Afghanistan.

What characterises countries where Islam is the predominant force is the terrible rights of women and girls. Afghanistan is very bad, alongside places like Pakistan. Countries that you may think "good", like Iran are in fact covering up some shockingly poor gender inequality issues.

Even in the West, like in the UK, Muslim women and girls are treated shoddily in their "communities". Only now is the veil of politically correctness being lifted to reveal the maggots eating at the core of Western liberties and gender equality in places like the UK. Yet when the Prime Minister (of the UK) says that women must learn English so they can be more empowered, sections of he "left" cry-on about "it's their culture" and "it's racist".

You do understand that this was going on in these cultures well before anyone from any Western Society interfered, yes?

Remember the news story that broke shortly after we started bombing in Afghanistan ? How the one lady tore off her burka and ran outside with the bombs falling. Yelling " I would rather die free , than live in this oppression" . That is the definition of hopelessness .

It was happening way less than now

Also afghanis would have went communist if it wasn't for CIA

Who knows how much less Islamic they would be today

Whole your beautiful CIA was printing children's martyrdom books in the 70-80s for Afghanistan

How despicable

How evil

How deserving of what fate is coming to North America

So, Afghani men treat their women worse than dogs and as second class citizens and its all the fault of the USA?

Unbelievable.

You appear to be as much a bigot driven by blind hatred as any of those extremists you seem to seek endless excuses for.

I hope you prove me wrong, however........

The problem is there really isn't anything anyone can do.If you raise
serious concerns about this abuse someone will blabber on that that
is their culture.Then say you are a racist.
If you try and connect this abuse with islam,then you will be labeled
a islamophobe.
Since this was a video shown on HBO I am sure someone will yell...fake,
that video was doctored and not telling the truth.
If we really want to get to the bottom of this and stop this type of abuse.
We have to start with political correctness and labeling those who bring
these atrocities to light.
Rant over my coffee is getting cold.

And if women don't want to accept the concept that men have "position and power" over us?
That very concept makes me both sad and mad....

Power corrupts. Maybe that's part of the problem - men thinking they have all the position and power

Men do have power and position over women.BUT,God did not make
woman from a bone from Adam's foot,He made woman from a bone
from his rib.To be a life time companion and mother to his children,
not to be a slave.

Your reply sickens me. All this convoluted mythological nonsense to justify the abdication and degradation of women.
