    keep looking, you'll find it
    It wasn't called the Muslim Spring for a reason (though a more correct name would be the Islamic Mediterranean Spring.). It happened in predominately Arab countries. No-one seriously expected it to occur in Indonesia or Bangladesh.

    more democracy and human rights from the eastern mediterranean non arab mohammedan spring

    Hanya Moheed, a 42-year-old journalist based in Cairo, claims that she was raped when she went to Tahrir Square for the protest commemorating the second anniversary of the Egyptian Revolution on Jan. 25. The following first-hand account has been adapted from an interview conducted with Moheeb by journalist Marwa Nasser.

    On Jan. 25, I went to Tahrir Square. It was late afternoon, and the atmosphere was not welcoming. I had decided to go home when a group of men began pushing me around. When I started shouting at them, some girls formed a tight circle to protect me. They obviously sensed danger. But despite their intervention, in just a few seconds I was surrounded by men. Within a short period of time, I had been shoved to the edge of the square. They took off my pants, my clothes, pushed up my blouse and touched me with their hands, placing their fingers in every part of my body. "Oh God," I prayed. "Give me 100 hands to push them away."

    Over 20 similar incidents happened in the space of four hours on Tahrir Square that day. The attacks appeared to be well-organized, by paid thugs. The crime was very systematic, with other victims reporting similar experiences.There were various groups and each was responsible for a task. The first group pushed you around to scare you. The second group claimed to be rescuing you. The attack I suffered lasted 45 minutes. They never once used vulgar words or insults. A group of sexually frustrated men wouldn't have acted this way. They even said they would save and protect me, that they were my brothers. But they raped me. It's what they do. They make a tight circle around the woman and violate her, while a third group surrounds the "rescuers" with knives and weapons to scare anyone who tries to enter the circle to save the woman.

    I don't blame anyone there who failed to help. Instead, I blame the political groups that organized the event without thinking of properly securing the square. I believe that the Muslim Brothers are behind it, but of course there is no evidence. They are the ones who want to evacuate the streets and Tahrir Square from the revolutionaries.

    Yup, good thing we've spent over a decade in the area, expanded our own government to dangerous levels, curtailed our own rights, spent over a trillion dollars, killed over 4000 more Americans to bring schools to another country who will then try to had the students. Woot! Meanwhile our own education falters, but why spend money and effort fixing our problems when we can "fix" the problems of the world.

    So how many more American lives, American dollars, and American rights will be necessary to stabilize the region?

    how's that war on women going?

    would sandra fluke insist that the victims of rape and poisoning in these non arab countries be given birth control pills?

    if so, obama might notice

    more misogyny from non arab nations

    Turkey ranks with Russia as one of the worst countries in Europe for abuse of women. By the government's admission, five women a day were killed by abusers in the first seven months of 2009. A chilling new report from Human Rights Watch, an advocacy group, suggests that the situation is getting worse. It finds that 42% of women over 15 have suffered physical or sexual violence; they are vulnerable even when pregnant. Asli, a 21-year old Kurdish woman, was injected with poison, beaten and raped by her husband and in-laws, and locked in a barn without food or water. She decided to seek help from local prosecutors after her father-in-law burned her arm and declared that “I didn't just get you here for my son, but also for my pleasure.” But the prosecutors never contacted her, and she now fears for her life. Asli's story is all too common.

    Turkey's mildly Islamist Justice and Development (AK) party is credited with making unprecedented reforms to protect women since it came to power in 2002. The laws are, however, spottily implemented. Single women, divorcees and wives taken in illegal Islamic marriages are not covered. Police often turn away victims on the grounds that “family unity must be preserved.” Hulya Gulbahar, a feminist lawyer, says that Turkey's overtly pious prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has set the wrong tone. “His diatribes against divorce and calls for women to bear at least three children have made things worse,” she claims. Turkey lags in equality, ranking 126 among 134 countries in the 2010 Global Gender Gap Index. Another study finds that women account for four-fifths of Turkey's 5.7m illiterate people.

    1. Our education system's problems will not be solved with increased spending, so that is a bit of a strawman

    2. It's not exactly as if we invaded and stayed there for girls' education. That is simply one of the benefits.

    3. Some of those Americans were my friends. You don't have to tell me the cost. But I would rather their hard work and sacrifice be for something than tossed away at the end by a feckless administration and a weak-willed American populace.
