Since 2001 American soldiers along with those from europe have been fighting for human rights in Afghanistan. Over two thousand have died in this fight to protect the rights and freedom of the people of Afghanistan. Among the complaints about the Taliban is the charge of their discrimination against the women of the country. Schools for women have been destroyed and there are numerous examples of women being killed for the “crime” of adultery. Guess what the current freedom loving government of Afghanistan is proposing? Article 23 of the new Penal Code allows the “STONING” of those guilty of adultery! In other words, we fought the Taliban to protect women and now the government which, allegedly, supports freedom is pushing through ancient punishments against women such as STONING!
It is time to depart if the Afghan government is no better than the Taliban.
