@JTT,

Freedom fighters good, but their other habits are less endearing. If and when they get control, no women will be able to go out in public without their husband, father or brother.

@spendius,

Just think, under the Britiban, the next time you try to chat a pink chubby in your favourite taproom you could get a knuckle sandwich for your trouble, or a knife round your knackers.

That's true, McTag, but these are issues for them to sort out. The US, with the help of other war criminals, didn't invade Afghanistan to save the women.

I've read of talks between the Taliban and Pakistan where the Taliban are taking a more moderate route. I'd venture that women in India and Pakistan aren't all that much better off.
