Afghani Barbarism

An Afghan militiaman strangled his wife for giving birth to a third daughter instead of a son, according to law enforcement authorities. The 28-year-old victim was killed in her home in the northern province of Kunduz by her husband and his mother just three months after the woman had the baby, reports the Guardian. The victim’s mother-in-law has been arrested, but the husband has fled. It’s uncertain who will care for the couple’s daughters. Two months ago, attackers in the same province poured acid over parents and three children after the parents refused to hand over their young daughter in marriage. The rejected suitor has been arrested.

Nothing the US and its allies have accomplished will make Afghanistan anything that it already isn’t.  Barbarism isn’t cured by war.  And a barbaric mindset isn’t erased by ‘Democracy’.

An Afghan businessman living in Montreal, has been found guilty of killing three of his daughters and his first wife (he was polygamist but just forgot to mention it to the Canadian authorities). The jury found him guilty of those multiple murders as well as his older son and his second wife. It was a so-called honour-killing. If interested, google Shafia….
