Afghanistan: 6-year-old girl beheaded — “We are not sure if she was beheaded by her family or the Taliban”
31st August 2012
Not that it really matters.
The Taliban might have beheaded her as a warning of what happens to those who work with the Afghan government, although this story doesn’t say whether or not her family members actually did work with the government — it only notes that about the other child who was beheaded in Afghanistan. But anyway, why might her family have beheaded her? An honor killing? Or maybe she just left the crayons out?
And what exactly are we trying to accomplish by expending our blood and treasure in this barbaric, savage land where police chiefs can casually speculate that maybe this latest beheaded six-year-old child was beheaded by her family, as if it were the sort of thing that happens every day? And in Afghanistan, maybe it is.
