rodin_thinker_detailInteresting piece on girls schools in Afghanistan getting threatened by the Taliban. The article (see link below) on Spiegel has a number of interesting layers to it. Let me explain.

Sickness of the threats

The sickening nature of the threats and the actions that happen to back them up are things that have been widely reported yet not resoundingly heard. The Taliban exhibit every bit of the nature that is why they need to be defeated. (see quote below)

Ineffective Intervention

The German army is in charge of the area that the article looks at. The troop strength of 600+ in such a wide area is useless. This is made pretty clear;however, the article fails to look at how the pussy mandate the Germans operate under goes a long way in making sure they (German troops) are attacked and that the Taliban feels free to attack school girls.

Angst

The article captures the goodness of the parents and others in the region,that even though they too are Muslims, they believe in girls going to school. Sitting in a home in the West for the most part ill prepares one for wrapping your head around that concept. The people in these areas in Afghanistan are truly victims. Nothing they do helps them. If they stand up, they die. If they turn to NATO, they die. Let’s be honest here. If they submit they eventually will still do something that’ll get them killed or at least brutally punished. 2005_06_10_afghan_students_.jpg

From the article:

Another threat letter depicts a schoolgirl at the gallows. “We have warned you,” reads the message. “If we now kill schoolgirls, you shouldn’t be surprised.”

Halimi is open in his description of the precarious situation the schools find themselves in. “There is no police there and even the army is afraid to go there,” he says. “What should I do, as a civilian, against the Taliban?”

And this:

Still, the news isn’t all bad. At the girls’ school in Qosh Tappeh, likewise near Kunduz, the school director, a veteran of the mujahedeen, took things into his own hands. When the Taliban showed up to his school for the second time to present their threats, he found a uniquely Afghan solution to the problem. He told his visitors that, when it comes to fighting to the death, he is much more experienced than they. Should they like to find out for sure, he offered, he would be happy to accommodate them.

His threat seemed to have worked. The girls in Qosh Tappeh continue to attend school.

    Note: The picture of the Afghani school girls comes from 2006 US State Dept.

    This is the key. There is only so much we, or anyone else can do. It’s up to the people of Afghanistan to ultimately make their country into the country they want it to be. This guy is certainly doing his part.

    It sickens me the way that the Germans and the French operate in Afghanistan. They are token forces and merely to show that they are co-operating.

    Repeated attempts to get them to stump up more troops, or more equipment have fallen on deaf ears. If they cannot even protect the civilians in the area? What are they doing there?

    It makes me cringe when a European Defence force is mentioned, it’d be a disaster; you can never count on the French, just look at D-Day, the largest ever amphibious assault, and it was on French soil, yet the French barely took part. And the Germans seem to believe that any military conflict will take them back to the Third Reich.

    They should be kicked out of NATO until they can pull their weight.
