    They are under a great deal of pressure to do so. This is from post 138.

    "British Foreign Secretary William Hague said he was "shocked and disgusted", with the government condemning the "deplorable" action and calling upon Afghanistan's rulers to bring the perpetrators to justice. "Such deplorable actions underline the vital need for better protection of the rights of women and girls in Afghanistan," Mr Hague said in a statement. The foreign minister explained that the British government was working with its Afghan counterparts, NGOs and international partners to improve the status of women in Afghanistan.

    US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
    earlier made a powerful plea for the rights of women in the war-ravaged nation after the horrific video emerged. Mrs Clinton, who was addressing a world conference on Afghanistan's future, in Tokyo, said: "The United States believes strongly that no nation can achieve peace, stability and economic growth if half the population is not empowered."

    Save your breath sharon. Too many posting in this thread don't give a flying **** about the woman murdered by the Taliban. 240 posts and i can count on one hand the amount of times she has been mentioned.

    It was a savage and insane killing... I can't make ANY excuses for what they did, but these types of "honor" killings if you can call them that, seem to happen in rural areas.

    This statement is patently unfair to all Serenity. People have their own perspectives, their own way of parsing out the facts and the reasons why this occurred. When someone reads the reported rendition of the facts, without more, what are they supposed to think. You very sharp criticism flies in the face of what a discussion is supposed to be which is to share thoughts and ideals and dispel that which is may be a wrong interpretation of the situation. There is no place for such severe, close minded and haughty views, as yours, when discussing something as complex as this situation.

    According to The Herald Sun:

    As she sits with her back to the crowd a bearded man is seen reading verses from the Koran condemning adultery, before saying: "We cannot forgive her, God tells us to finish her. Juma Khan, her husband, has the right to kill her."The video then shows a man in white being handed an AK47 rifle.

    He approaches to within a couple of metres of the woman, says 'Allahu akhbar' (God is great), aims and fires twice, missing each time. The third shot hits her in the back, she flings her arms wide and collapses.

    He then fires another six shots into her body as the crowd cheers wildly, shouting "Long live Islam", "Long live mujahideen (holy warriors)". The shooter then fires four more shots into her body.

    How many times has she been mentioned Connor?

    This situation is not complex. There's nothing complex about it. Crazy extremists murdered a woman. Do people not understand how stupid it is to pretend to be experts on the random things that go on in Afghanistan by idiots like this? The fact that the media is reporting this story is pure propaganda. You think they really care about this woman? How can no one see this? This would be akin to the Taliban reporting stories in Afghanistan of some random dumb **** American in Arkansas who kills his wife and 3 kids.

    Nope, that is where you are trying to fit in a simple solution to a complex situation. As already been stated these killings, "Public executions of alleged adulterers were common when the Taliban regime was in power from 1996 until 2001, when they were ousted by a US-led invasion for harbouring Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden after the 9/11 attacks." I am under no illusion that the media cares about anything, let alone this story. In the US they are not even required to report the truth.

    The fact is this did occur, according to the video. How was this person allowed to video this with impunity? There are too many contradictions, the Afghan people want us out, the government seems to want us out yet clearly they show a situation that was present then quelled with our intervention. It aroused the ire and concerned of those whom they wish to see leave giving them a reason to stay on some level.

    You comparison regarding a killing in the US and how it would be regarded by the Taliban is poor at best. The US and the UK are specifically seek these injustices to cease, not so much for the Taliban.

    Afghan woman executed by Taliban for adultery
    Saw that article already. Again, no one really gives a **** about this woman, she's just more propoganda for the Australian media. We had another Soldier killed in Afghanistan last week. Gotta keep the propoganda flowing to "justify" our reasons for being there.

    Our foreign minister, Alexander Downer, cares so much about the plight of females like Najiba he feels that instead of coming illegally to Australia, Afghans would better serve their country by staying home and helping develop a decent society. LOL. Legally or illegally they should be welcomed here. There lifes are hell. The fake outrage is pathetic.

    Honestly, what's the point of posting a thread like this? Everyone in a forum like this knows the horrors that gangs like the Taliban are capable of.
