Using women's rights again as a means of framing US imperialism. Perhaps things were better for many Afghan women under a US-supported government, but it is also the US's violent intervention, which has led to the situation in Afghanistan today. One cannot disconnect the two. https://t.co/RYNX9COIvL— Nida Kirmani (@NidaKirmani) September 11, 2021
This is the perfect example of what I noted last week.— Michelangelo Signorile (@MSignorile) September 11, 2021
Media will argue “women’s right” to defend staying In Afghanistan.
But then give us ‘both sides” on Texas Bounty Hunter and Uterus Takeover Act.
Its crazy to see the amount of westerners who suddenly care about women’s rights in Afghanistan while they didn’t care about the decades of bombings, murder, drone strikes, and rape which occurred at the hands of the US military.— Glo🍥 (@ASAPglow) September 11, 2021
The principle reason its impossible to take the US's alleged concern for women's rights in Afghanistan seriously is that over the 20 year occupation US & NATO airstrikes have killed more than 70,000 civilians, about half of them women and girls.— Jeffrey St. Clair, CounterPunch (@JeffreyStClair3) September 5, 2021
US and allied armies are accused of raping an estimated half a million women in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya combined in the last twenty years.Western countries have no moral ground or business to tell Talibans or the Muslim world about women rights in Afghanistan. @bonglez— Duke Salman Khan (@KhanSalkhan1) September 10, 2021
