Puppet regime standards for women
Tearing out a page from medieval standards of wifely coercion, a new law has apparently been passed in Afghanistan allowing men to deny their wives food if they deny their husbands sexual access. This comes months after Karzai was internationally roasted for the passage of the so-called Afghan rape law which diminished the notion of consent in marital sex, effectively making Afghan women their husbands’ prisoners and victims.
It is helpful to remember that Karzai (who has supposedly come out ahead in polls today in occupied Afghanistan at 44%) is the U.S. ‘liberal’ puppet of choice under not only Bush the Second but also Operation Khanjar’s Obama.
‘”The rights of Afghan women are being ripped up by powerful men who are using women as pawns in manoeuvres to gain power. These kinds of barbaric laws were supposed to have been relegated to the past with the overthrow of the Taliban in 2001, yet Karzai has revived them and given them his official stamp of approval.”‘
