I once saw some photos of what American soldiers were doing to prisoners in Iraq. And people wonder why I hate Americans.
The incident you cited was clearly carried out by male chauvinists who don't want girls to get an education (probably because they don't think they will be able to find a girl willing to become their slave if all girls get educated)
Thats why I hate all men. Especially American men.
'all men', and i thought that you rather took a shine to me, oh well, delusions persist, but actually you are correct, i used to live in Pakistan and the treatment of women is truly deplorable, infact it is truly inhumane to an excessive degree, everyday there are reports in newspapers of girls having 'accidents' in a domestic setting, the most common is that their 'dubutta', - a head scarf gets caught in the fire whilst cooking', even though i have never seen one on while they cook. even in India there are instances of acid being poured not only on girls but also on 'low cast', workers, there is a horrific picture in national geographic magazine of a man who dared to draw water from village well and had acid poured upon him because he was low cast and 'unclean' and had contaminated the well, jealous and men who have had a marriage proposal knocked back have resorted to this tactic to defigure the girl so that no one else will have her, truly it is a sick world, however the worst case is that little Somalian girl who was raped, reported it and then was charged with adultery, buried up to her head in sand and then stoned to death, i was almost physically sick when i contemplated this, infact if i never had the example of Christ my heart would seethe with hatred because of the cruelty and the injustice, please be careful that it also does not consume you and you're heart becomes hardened and bitter because of the cruel and senseless actions of others! although who could blame you?
