Originally posted by Hugh GlassI certainly hope this kind of thing will and and I think it can end. The problem is that I don't think we are doing the right thing to stop it.
I saw a picture of a woman with her nose cut off, and I guess her ears were cut off as well. ( Afghanistan )
I am assuming this is some brutal law they have?
Anyway, does it make sense for the NATO forces to be fighting there, if somehow they can stop things like this, or is it a custom that will never die out?
Is it a waste of time and lives?

A combination of disciplined, lawful and honorable soldiers and police with overwhelming firepower and military skill combined with respect and assistance out of poverty is the most efficient solution I think. It will never die out completely...these memes rarely do...but no nation on the planet can end violence entirely.
Whether NATO should continue to be the source of military power is not clear.

I think mine would involve a baseball bat...
Originally posted by Hugh GlassA lot of men in these places are extremely afraid of what might happen if they had to treat women as if they were human beings with the same rights as men. Much easier to stuff them into burqas and pretend they're just your "personal belongings".
It begs the question, what kind of person would do this,, and why anyone would allow it to go on?
