Aeladil, your pro-woman rant is tiresome. I can appreciate the plight of women in that culture but it has every bit to do with religion and the devout lack of evaluation of centuries-old tradition it encourages. And the problem isn't just the abuse of women, as you seem to think. (These women weren`t abused, they were murdered, by the way.) The culture of violence brewing in that region isn`t directed solely at women, although they do bear the brunt of it. No, the problem is much deeper than that, and we`re not going to see any progress until Islam wholly and fully renounces violence and fear, which we`re not likely to see in our lifetimes.

Atrocities like this happen despite the religion, faith, or ethnicity of those involved. Yes, they are more common in some parts of the world, but that doesn't mean women in the US and in Canada or England are any less likely to be abused. We have come a LONG way in the last 100 years alone; gaining the vote, working, and speaking out against work place harrassment. But we have so much farther to go.

What happened here is sick. What happens WHENEVER, WHERE EVER a woman is abused is sick.

A real man would know how to control his anger and frustration - rather than revert to a brutish, precivilization mindset.

The men that perpetrated these acts should be castrated and made to live as women for the rest of their days. Maybe then they will understand the depths of depravity certain parts of the world contain against the female sex.

oh and quick_sand8

can you uh... cut down on the ellipses a bit?

you say us young people should be doing stuff to help. well, have you yourself done anything to help?

if so, please, enlighten us as to some of your doings, but if you're going to bitch at the rest of us for not doing anything when you`re not, that`s kinda messed up

oh my god...

that's disgusting!

why does it always take something big like people being tortured or even killed for an issue to be recognized and steps taken?!
