Afghan Girl's Throat Slit Over Refusal To Wed

This really is one messed up country.
I honestly do not see how this kind of insane behaviour can be stopped.

Sad, but probably happens every day... we just don't read about it.

Because they don't want to get married? Granted, all are horrific acts.

Really? Is that the best you can do? Give it up.

We are talking here about a 15 year old getting murdered for not getting married, about a 16 year old girl getting flogged because she allegedly had an affair, about a 14 year old getting shot for going to school.

As someone else says it probably happens everyday but we only get to hear about it when it happens to children.

You're post is simply stupid.
Hundreds of young girls are murdered every year in Europe and North America and Australia, but this is worse, apparently.

That's because wog murder is always several degrees worse than murder. Always.

You're right there are hundreds, probably thousands world wide but how many of these are for not getting married, going to school, allegedly having an affair?

The later is the point of the article and the thread, not the fact that girls are being murdered.

Appears to me to be a form of self justice. Why don't others use self justice on the murders?

Re: Afghan Girl's Throat Slit Over Refusal To Wed

Read the article. Seems the murderers were retaliating because the family declined the marriage offer. Not so different to domestic violence and murders because the woman has rejected the man. Plenty of those across the western world.

Ironic that we call them 'love triangle' murders...

Why not search google for all the murders/attempted murder/violent abuse for not getting married, having an affair, not going to school in Afghan v's the murders in Europe for the same reasons?

No one said it does not happen outside Afghanistan, the point is it happens more often there and more to the point is accepted but a lot of the population hence the comment about stopping it.

Things were supposed to improve once we ousted the Taliban.. or perhaps this wouldn't have happened under the Taliban?? I'm so confused over black and white definitions of evil
