Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Taliban hand out 37 lashes to girl seen with married man | World news | guardian.co.uk

A video showing a teenage girl being flogged by Taliban fighters has emerged from the Swat Valley in Pakistan, offering a shocking glimpse of militant brutality in the once-peaceful district, and a sign of Taliban influence spreading deeper into the country.

The two-minute video, shot using a mobile phone, shows a burka-clad woman face down on the ground. Two men hold her arms and feet while a third, a black-turbaned fighter with a flowing beard, whips her repeatedly.

"Please stop it," she begs, alternately whimpering or screaming in pain with each blow to the backside. "Either kill me or stop it now."

A crowd of men stands by, watching silently. Off camera a voice issues instructions. "Hold her legs tightly," he says as she squirms and yelps.

I'm left with the impression that the taliban are deeply sexually deprvaed. Several of them probably had very exciting fantasies fulfilled by that excapade and, in the time honoured fashion of all violent abusers,  now seek to escalate. Some of them are, no doubt, wondering in the quietness of their own bedroom, what it will feel like to beat a woman to death and looking for an excuse.

They are the vilest of creatures.
