You're right in that a response was too long in coming. But why would womens' groups PROTEST the response? Better late then never, is what I've always heard; but it seems to me that some of these leaders' hatred of the U.S. military trumps their own concern for the Afghan women.

It also seems to me that many leaders of special interest groups would rather see their problems SURVIVE, since it gives them something to run on coming every election cycle. Cynical as I may be, I believe that certain feminists KNOW that their political power is gone once equality is genuinely reached and are unwilling to see that happen.

Shit howdy, Bubba, you need to go smell some lilacs or something. I SINCERELY doubt that what you say applies to most feminist leaders. History doesn't bear that out. It just doesn't. C'mon, be positive here. You don't have to like Feminism, but give those of us who are believers a chance! Sometimes I'll give you conservative guys the benefit of the doubt as far as sincerity goes! Really! I do. Many times.

I'd like to state for the record that the US gave Iraq virtually nothing during the Iran/Iraq war aside from a few trucks and transport helicopters. Iraq was a client state of the Soviet Union and recieved 75% of its military equipment from the Soviet Union. China provided most of the rest along with a little from France. Except for some French equipment, any western equipment found in Iraqs arsonal was captured during fighting with Iran. Iran used to be a client state of the USA while the Shah was in power until late 70s.
