TIME Is Not On Our Side

Tuesday, August 10th, 2010

TIME Magazine is great – at selling magazines. This is the April 8, 1966 cover over which America freaked out! Yelled arguments, issues burned in street protests, numerous condemnations from hypocritical politicians and church leaders, and – most important – millions and millions of magazines sold.

TIME is doing it again.  They’ve placed on their cover a sophisticated, well-dressed, young Afgan woman – with her nose and ears cut off.  This horrible mutilation was carried out by extreme Islamic fundamentalists because she left her husband who was beating her.  And TIME innocently asks, “Will this happen if America leaves Afghanistan?”

Let me answer the question so you don’t have to read the pants-load analysis in that costly rag sheet:

Yes – of course it will!  Just as it has been happening for thousands of years and will continue to happen for thousands of more years when the US finally pulls out.

It would be nice if we could stop the severe oppression of women in Afghanistan – just as it would be nice if we could stop it in about 150 other countries of the world.  BUT WE CAN’T.

Hasn’t nine years of failure taught us anything?  In answer to 911, the US toppled Afghanistan’s Taliban government .  My only criticism at the time was we were too restrained.  But the minute America achieved that goal, we should have left. And we should still get out now – even though it’s about nine years too late.
