Perspective.

All women in Afghanistan are so oppressed they're marching in protests and speaking out against the war.


"Many times NATO troops and these cars have killed our innocent people. They never care whether we are Afghans or animals," said Samia, 26, an activist from Kabul who took part in the demonstration.

Samia, who like many Afghans goes by only one name, said that she did not want the Taliban to return to power in Afghanistan but that NATO has only aggravated the situation over the past decade and fed a parasitic and dependent Afghan government.



"We poor people are not just here to be killed," said an elderly woman named Rabia who was in Sunday's protest. She said she had witnessed the reaction to the traffic accident Friday. "The people were so emotional. They were throwing stones at the Americans' vehicles. If the police hadn't taken the Americans away, the people would have torn them to pieces. If I had the chance to do that, I would do the same thing."

They are making progress. Let's stop meddling and keeps supporting them and let them do it. They're clearly motivated.

We need to have awareness of our world, this is one sad and terrifying and maddening part of it.

Just wanted to let you know about this thread, as it seems pretty related. Seems a confidential CIA NOFORN report discussed using the Afghan women as messengers.

WikiLeaks and War Crimes and the Afghan Women

Anyway, just wanted to document it here as a cross-reference.
