Tell me again why we shouldn't have troops in Afghanistan

I really want Cut & Run Goff to explain to me why we shouldn’t have combat troops in Afghanistan. I really mean it. Tell me why we should leave Afghanistan to the Taleban. If you have the guts Phil, do it in the comments, I really want to know. While we are at it perhaps Metiria Turei and Russel Norman and even better Keith Locke could explain why we shouldn’t have even more troops in Afghanistan.

And I want Bomber and Idiot/Savant and the paid lap-bloggers at The Standard to tell me why we should cut & run and leave people to the Taleban. They won’t of course, because they have no understanding from their soft warm couches, their university offices and the office of Labour, the EPMU and especially parliament. They just heard somewhere that we need to “Give Peace a Chance”, they learned at university of Labour Party and Green brainwashing.

They follow the footsteps of Cut & Run Goff, the man who held hands with Yasser Arafat, the man who celebrated the end of the Vietnam War by flying a NVA flag off the cenotaph, with their Israel hating, their muelling and whinging about “Give Peace a Chance”

Well Fuck them hard with a great big Fucker thingy. Read this and tell me again why we should cut & run.

Bibi Aisha“When they cut off my nose and ears, I passed out,” 19-year-old Bibi Aisha of Afghanistan says with chilling candor.

Her beauty is still stunning and her confidence inspiring. It takes a moment for the barbaric act committed against her to register in your mind and sight.

Wearing her patterned scarf and with roughly painted nails she shares her story.

“It felt like there was cold water in my nose, I opened my eyes and I couldn’t even see because of all the blood,” she remembers.

It was an act of Taliban justice for the crime of shaming her husband’s family.

This story began when Aisha was just 8 years old.

Her father had promised her hand in marriage, along with that of her baby sister’s, to another family in a practice called “baad.”

“Baad” in Pashtunwali, the law of the Pashtuns, is a way to settle a dispute between rival families.

At 16, she was handed over to her husband’s father and 10 brothers, who she claims were all members of the Taliban in Oruzgan province. Aisha didn’t even meet her husband because he was off fighting in Pakistan.

“I spent two years with them and became a prisoner,” she says.

Bet they don’t even answer. Go on answer why we should cut & run and leave Afghanistan to the Taleban, even better why don’t you write to Bibi Aisha and explain that it is real sad that he had her nose and ears cut off and that she was enslaved but we don’t think we can win and the war is unjust, so just cope. Haven’t got it in you have you? Gutless Fuckers.

Tortured and abused, she couldn’t take it any longer and decided to run away. Two female neighbors promising to help took her to Kandahar province.

But this was just another act of deception.

When they arrived to Kandahar her female companions tried to sell Aisha to another man.

All three women were stopped by the police and imprisoned. Aisha was locked up because she was a runaway. And although running away is not a crime, in places throughout Afghanistan it is treated as one if you are a woman.

A three-year sentence was reduced to five months when President Hamid Karzai pardoned Aisha. But eventually her father-in-law found her and took her back home.

That was the first time she met her husband. He came home from Pakistan to take her to Taliban court for dishonoring his family and bringing them shame.

The court ruled that her nose and ears must be cut off. An act carried out by her husband in the mountains of Oruzgan where they left her to die.

But she survived.

How about now, got anything to say. This little girl has got more courage in her than the entire gutless peacenik, hippy, dak smoking losers who wail, “we can’t win, let’s cut and run”.

The Bibi Aisha’s of the world is why we fight. It is why I honour soldiers.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
