    Feminists Silent on Freedom for Iraqi Women
    by Lisa De Pasquale

    Radical feminists witnessed a legitamet case of tyranny and violence against women in Iraq, but they remained steadfastly against policies and actions taken by America and the Bush administration that helped these women. NOW president Kim Gandy stated, "The real terrorism is the Bush administration's disregard for international law and destruction of civil liberties at home. This has become an issue of one dictator versus another"
    Feminists are more comfortable allowing Iraqi women to endure torture than support the Bush administration. For example, a report by Amnesty International dosumented the beheading of 50 young women in Baghdad. the report also said, "the heads of these women were hung on the doors of their houses for a few days."

    Yes it is. It really bothers me that so many people can turn a blind eye to any good, just to turn around and spew garbage in the name of their party. This used to really piss me off, now I just Pray. What can you do?!

    Yes prayer for sure.....keeps the blood pressure lower :p:

    I think what bothers me more about all these situations is the notion that supposedly intelligent rational people are swayed by this, do any of these people actually read about these things or are their intellects so darkened they just don't see the truth thats right in front of them?

    The hypocrisy of the left is nearly infinite. If harnessed properly it could drastically reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. :mm:

    Interesting article. The author has a valid point. I can only assume that the leadership at NOW values their sons lives more than the betterment of life for Iraqi women. I read an article that relates to women in Iraq that was also interesting. Perhaps there is another side to this person's opinion.
