A couple of days ago, someone in Kabul bombed a girls school (middle and high school). Fifty girls were massacred. I am not sure if the Taliban claimed the slaughter but it’s in their style. The last time they were in power, they banned all girls education (together with music and caged songbirds).
There is a better than even chance that they will take over again after all foreign troops, including ours, are withdrawn. Do I think they became more civilized during twenty years in the wilderness? You answer that one .
“None of our business,” Americans are saying right to left, beginning with my libertarian friends. Sure thing: If I see a man slitting a girl’s throat a block from my house, I just walk away because it’s none of my business. I don’t know how we can sleep at night. Shame will kill you though slowly.
