It looks like the women of Iraq will have LESS freedoms now than they did under Saddam. Speaking about Iraq’s new constitution, the AP writes:
Most worrying for women’s groups has been the section on civil rights, which some believe would significantly roll back women’s rights under a 1959 civil law enacted by a secular regime.
You would think that those who claim we went into Iraq to “liberate” the Iraqi people would be up in arms about this. But what is the right-wing blogopshere saying?[*chirp, chirp*]
Of course, we also have done a fine job of showing what humane creatures democracy fosters—like our quaint ways of raping boys and trying to pretend that we didn’t.
