Below is a report from the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan’s website. It makes me physically ill to read it, so do not take the link if you do not want to know about the gang-rape of a woman in Badakhshan and the treatment of her children, who were witnesses to the event.
Is it this vilification of women and children — this terrorism — that we are reconstructing in Afghanistan? It seems to me that Canadian participation in this pseudo war on terror has made the situation for the women of that country even worse than before.
Bring our troops home!
