Bush’s ‘new’ Afghanistan, worst country for women

This video says about itself:

Malalai Joya is an Afghan human rights activist who was kicked out from the Afghan Parliament for publicly denouncing the presence of what she considered to be warlords and war criminals among MPs. An outspoken critic of President Karzai and his western supporters, she was first denied a US visa to promote her book “Woman among Warlords,” however, after the international condemnation of this step Joya was able to visit the US. She joins RT’s Lauren Lyster to discuss the situation in Afghanistan.

Some of the lies George W. Bush used to justify the Afghan war, now continued and escalated under Barack Obama, were pseudo-feminist lies.

Now, ten years after Bush started his bloody ‘building‘ of the ‘democratic’ ‘new’ Afghanistan, today this news:

TRUSTLAW POLL-Afghanistan is most dangerous country for women

* Afghanistan tops expert poll of dangers to women

* Congo plagued by rape as weapon of war

* Pakistan blighted by acid attacks and ‘honour killings’

* India cited for trafficking and sexual slavery

* Somalia seen as having full gamut of risks

In all countries of this anti-women ‘Top’ Five, there are internal patriarchal social factors.

However, all have external, worldwide, factors as well, in which United States and other western capitalism and militarism play a role.

Afghanistan is a NATO-occupied country.

In Congo, western mining and other capitalist interests led to the bloody Mobutu dictatorship and after that to bloody civil war.

Pakistan practically since its independence has a history of CIA support for military dictatorship, anti-democratic secret services, and religious extremists (helping the USA in the 1980s-1990s Afghan war etc.). Pakistani women suffer from this.

In India, economic ‘free market liberalisation’ and ties to US militarism led to social tensions harming women.

In Somalia, a puppet government propped up by United States air force bombing and United States proxy soldiers of Ugandan dictator Museveni is waging bloody civil war.
