Angry So you DID "exported democracy" to Afghanistan, didn't you?

Now, have a look at the law just signed into effect by Afghan President Hamid Karzai, in spite of the international treaties signed in the past 8 years by the new "liberated" Country, in spite of the western democracies' help, support and imput in reforming the legal system, and all just to obtain the fundamentalists' support for the upcoming elections:
- It will be legal for a man to beat, abuse of, even rape his wife;
- Underage/child marriage, even without "bride"'s consent, will be legal;
- It will be illegal for a married woman to leave the family's home/premises for any reason, even to seek an employment or medical assistance, without spouse's consent and/or escort; same will apply to non-married women, father's or brother's approval/escort required;
- In case of divorce, only males (fathers, grandfathers, uncles, etc.) will have the right to obtain custody of children; this right will be denied to their own mothers.

"We (atheists) act in good conscience because we believe in moral principles, not because we expect a reward in Heaven." -- Margherita Hack
