    I think most would agree that protection needs to be provided for the women of Afghanistan, DRC... So, why is it so difficult to follow through with the good intentions?
    This is total bull****! It is not the duty of the US to see to it that Afghan women have rights. If the UN wants to take this on (and they have plenty of committees), they can.

    It is sure, the womenís life was far from brilliant during Saddamís period, but I donít think that it improves after the invasion, like everybodyís life in Iraq. So the intervention of the Western countries in their life has not improved their existence, like in Afghanistan.

    Yes, you are right, but the situation remains difficult for the women.

    When you announce that you'll be pulling troops in a year, what could we possibly do that will stick long-term for women's rights in Afghanistan.

    You can't change the primitive mentalities of the Middle East.

    Agreed but I'm not sure what the U.S. can really do about it. These people are ass backwards.

    Because we should look to the Afghan government, not Hillary Clinton, to protect women's rights in Afghanistan. Afghanistan is one of the poorest, most unstable, worst-governed countries in the entire world. It's simply not realistic to think that the United States is capable of fixing that.
