NEWSFLASH : There has not been a single month since we invaded when awful things were not done to women in Afghanistan. We could have taken our role in reforming the country seriously back in 2002, but instead our f wit leadership decided that we'd had enough fun blowing up a medieval society and so went off and destroyed a 20th century one instead.
And anytime anyone suggested we'd wasted and continued to waste our blood and treasure they say "we're protecting the women" even if they weren't (which they weren't). And now, 10 years later, they're still not protecting the women and still claiming that, if we pull out, the women will have a hard time.
Well, it might have helped if you'd really done something about it in the first place by, I dunno, actually protecting the women

Could have erased 160 years off the calendar...
Wikipedia has a category called "Category:Wars involving Afghanistan". I know Wikipedians create category pages at the drop of a hat, but I still think that's the saddest thing I've seen today.
Any wonder they're fed up?
