The ongoing proliferation of yellow journalism and propaganda by right wing media operatives has become a media war to fight for the truth. This is a story about a blogger who claims Afghan women want more war, while she cites only a handful of Bush cronies that “visited” the White House, and ignores the vast majority of Afghan women who continue to suffer under the strain of war. There is no democracy for women in Afghanistan as Bush and wifey pooh Laura have regurgitated to the media.
The continued war in Afghanistan in fact makes things much worse for women. Women and children continue to die every day. They are raped, abducted, tortured. They have acid thrown on their faces. No doubt they take this abuse from both the Taliban and U.S. forces. They continue to cry for and end to war while the U.S. ignores them completely.
