If not for freedom, someone please remind me why British troops are fighting in Afghanistan.
Please remind me why the West is spending billions and billions of dollars and the lives of thousands of our young if not to free Afghans. Please explain how the West can continue to pump money and lives into that dark hole and allow these kinds of human rights abuses under the authority of an Afghanistan government that the West put in place.
Please tell me what the definition of “victory” is. Please tell me when the war in Afghanistan will be won, or lost. At this point, I almost don’t give a damn. Let the savages have at each other. If they overstep their border or attack the west, nuke ’em. If someone has a better plan, please let me know!
“According to Westerners closely following his case in Kabul, Sayed Mossa is likely to be charged with espionage and with conversion to Christianity, or apostasy—crimes that may be punishable by death under Islamic law. The court session may be televised, officials have said, and it is likely that Mossa will be asked to renounce his faith.
Mossa was arrested in late May 2010 as part of a crackdown against Afghan converts to Christianity that followed a television broadcast of several baptisms. He has been held in a prison in Kabul under worsening conditions and has been subjected to daily beatings, torture, and sexual abuse. Court-appointed legal counsel, all Muslims, have refused to take his case because he is considered an apostate. Officials from the International Committee on the Red Cross, where Mossa worked for 15 years, visited him twice, and he has received other Western visitors, including representatives from the U.S. embassy. They confirmed that Mossa had been tortured and successfully pressured the Afghan government to move him to another prison, away from other prisoners. That took place Oct. 29, 2010…”
