    Karzai: Afghanistan to review criticized sharia law

    Karzai: Afghanistan to review criticized sharia law - CNN.com


    Amid mounting pressure from the West, Afghan President Hamid Karzai says his government will review a recently approved version of a law that critics say legalizes marital rape and the U.S. president has called "abhorrent."


    I am going to paraphrase what I got from this article: "We understand the concerns of our allies in the international community," Karzai told reporters Saturday.... [now go **** yourselves. Religion over State]
    "I do not underestimate the ability of fanatical groups of terrorists to kill and destroy, but they do not threaten the life of the nation. Whether we would survive Hitler hung in the balance, but there is no doubt that we shall survive al-Qa'ida." -- Lord Hoffmann

    It's almost sick Irony, we send out soldiers in there to fight for the right of the Afghanistan (And I am sure the Iraqi Government) to make laws that allowed Saddam and the Taliban to rise in the first place which they chose originally.

    There are some that say we couldn't withdraw because our soldiers would have die invain, but if the new governments simply allow similar dictators to rise doesn't that mean they died invain?

    Neither country will have a dictatorship. And the point of the news story is that this new law allows husbands to rape their wives.

    Saddam was useful in not only resisting Communism but also preventing the spread of the Iranian Islamic Revolution and the Taliban was a creation of the Pakistani ISI.

    Saddam used Chemical weapons on his own people. So you are saying as long as a dictator was against Russia, that oks him killing his own people?

    Kinda true, Saddam supported Arab Socialism which was coined as a "third way" sort of speak between Western Capitalism and Soviet Communism.
