Storm Track Infiltration: Bringing Democracy to Afghanistan

Do you think that right about now NATO is wondering whatever happened to bringing democracy to Afghanistan? Our troops are fighting a dying for freedom in that backward country while day in and day out news surfaces on how democracy is failing in that country.

First of course, was the mistake of writing into the Afghan constitution that it will be an Islamic Republic. Taking a cue from that faux pas, the Islamists pursue their goal of making the population yield to what’s written in the second article of the Afghan – and Iraqi constitution.

Here are some of the latest examples.

In the ever extending list of things that annoy Allah, we can add drum playing.

UNKNOWN militants have killed a drum musician in Logar province, one of the victim’s family said.

Hazrad Din, a 50-year-old drum player, had played drums at celebrations in the province’s Baraki Barak district for the last 30 years.

Ziaul Din, his uncle, said Hazrad Din was killed by two men riding a motorcycle while leaving a marriage party in the Rustam Khel district of the province on Saturday.

The musician had received frequent threats from the Taliban over the last year and was warned not to play at wedding parties, the uncle said.

Even after sentenced to prison, Afghan women have to suffer the indignities of Islam.

Saliha was convicted of escaping from home and illegal sexual relations. The first carries a maximum penalty of 10 years, the second 20. These are two of the most common accusations facing female prisoners in Afghanistan.

Two-thirds of the women in Lashkar Gah's medieval-looking jail have been convicted of illegal sexual relations, but most are simply rape victims – mirroring the situation nationwide. The system does not distinguish between those who have been attacked and those who have chosen to run off with a man.

Colonel Ghulam Ali, a high-ranking regional security officer, explained sternly that he supported the authorities' right to convict victims of rape. "In Afghanistan whether it is forced or not forced it is a crime because the Islamic rules say that it is," he claimed. "I think it is good. There are many diseases that can be created in today's world, such as HIV, through illegal sexual relations."

Including the disease of Islam?

But on a brighter note.

U.S. coalition dogs bit two fleeing suspected Taliban militants during an operation in eastern Afghanistan in which a total of eight insurgents were detained, the coalition said Friday.

During the operation, "two militants attempted to flee and were pursued by coalition military working dogs," the coalition said in a statement. "Both militants received dog-bite injuries, one of which required treatment on scene by coalition medical personnel."

In Islamic tradition, dogs are shunned as unclean and dangerous.

Poetic justice. No?
