DESPAIR Part one



Taliban execute pregnant woman in Afghanistan

When in power from 1996 untill 2001, the radical Taliban staged public stonings or lashings of those found to have sex outside marriage. – (File Photo)

HERAT: The Taliban publicly flogged and then executed a pregnant Afghan widow by emptying three shots into her head for alleged adultery, police said on Monday.

 If you are like me, you are disgusted, of course, the whole idea is patently sick. Or is it? 

The picture above is not the picture of the incident itself, and I know some in Taliban have even denied that it happened, but it could have, it is not past the Taliban justice.

Yet look at this scene, how proud we are that we are not like them, we don't do things like this, this is not how justice should be, no God will allow this, then look at us,  and look below,  ignorance of man has no boundaries.

This was also called justice, and if you  think we are past it, think again, look at the percentage of our country men who believe that torture is all right, of course they are criminals, aren't they? And so we justify torture for our safety's sake. And were not the black men danger to to our wives and daughters, and our system? Just as a fornicating Afghan woman is a danger to their values and society.

Let me assure you first that  if she was a widow of 35, she was raped by someone in the Taliban it self, or the poor woman had to turn to prostitution to feed her kids, that is the truth of the society there, poor women are either raped by the powerful, ( even some one with as little power as a local beat cop),  and the poor women are raped in this country, by cops, and judges and lawyers, just  not  to as large a degree as there may be, or may be more, if a woman is lose she  could cut a deal in trade for sex, we are all humans only.

We in the West feel morally superior to  to the others like the one's in the third world countries, but what is our responsibility in acts of the nations we are friends with, the regimes we support, like Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Columbia and Egypt, not to mention Israel, but of course they are only torturing the Arabs.

Try on this scene, you send money to help a Pakistani charity organization, then tomorrow the homeland security, state department or any of the other one hundred US intelligence organizations declares that charity a supporter of terrorism. People in Black out fits come to your house and knock down your door in the middle of the night , they don't tell you why and tell your family not to ask any questions, you know now that it is being done to keep you safe in America, under the patriot Act so you don't say anything, Just keep imagining where it is going, welcome to the new USA.
The basic truth is this, that in there zeal to fight the terrorist, the United States has become a police state, while we pay lip service to  human rights, and freedom and democracy, we are torturing our "enemies" holding them without trial or even charges, we are trying child soldiers, we are "rendering" our "enemies to foreign governments for torture and running "black prisons" and prisons" outside the reach of the US constitution or the world court at Guantanamo, Bagram, Diego Garcia, Hungry and more. In the war on terrorism  the whole world is a prison for the United States.
