Afghan girls scarred in acid attack

Five Afghan schoolgirls have been attacked with battery acid by suspected Taliban fighters in the southern city of Kandahar. The attack on Wednesday occurred when two men on motorbikes confronted the students outside the Mirwais Nika Girls High School. Two girls were seriously injured by what was discovered to be battery acid. (. . .)

What do you make of this? I wonder if there's more than meets the eye. Certainly it's being used by the media to keep support on the Afghan mission.

Yeah. The problem is, it also looks a lot like this:

Notice the SOURCE: MI6, and some govt. sponsored "news service".


In fact, for some horrific eye openers, try this:

And here's a motherload:

The problem is, things aren't as simple as "everything's a psych-op".

No doubt alot of this is incited, some of it is orchestrated by colluding powers, and who knows, maybe some of it is even made up.

But the harsh reality is that 3/4 of the Earth really is still in the Dark Ages, and it DOES need some policing.

We ought to be humble about how 'civilized' we are, and how suitable the West is for teaching 'ethics', morality and 'justice'.

But there seems to be a net need for people and governments (as ill equipped as we are) to go into primitive areas and stop crap like this from happening.
