I was teetering on the brink as to posting this and am within a hair's breadth of pulling it -- and I am NOT running this for any sensational value. TIME magazine (yeah, that TIME magazine with that slimeball Journ-o-lister, Joe Klein, writing for it) is running this series on "The Plight of Afghan Women: A Disturbing Picture". The cover is shown at the left; I have made it small and will not provide the link to TIME. If you want to read the article, find it for yourselves.
This depicts a beautiful young girl, brutally disfigured BY THOSE ASSHOLE TALIBANI. As I write this, I am in tears over the savage cruelty these bastards have for their own kind and how they degrade women.
Please remember this poor young women and others who have been tortured, stoned, hanged, and otherwise murdered and disfigured at the hands of these vile, obdurate, puss-laden sacks of camel afterbirth..
..the same people that our president travels far and wide prostrating himself in front of.
If anyone -- particularly my kinder, gentler visitors like Opie, Supi, Bunni, No Sheeples -- wishes me to pull the picture, please leave a comment and I will do so. Hell, I'll probably pull the post in a couple of hours, but I could not bear my rage and sadness alone.
I am sorry.
