Congratulations to the SBS
This week they finallly programmed some shows that fully support the liberation of Afghanistan after September 11, by the Americans and sundry other international allies including Oz.
This is quite a coup for the SBS who have been relentlessly programming every bit of footage they can get to slam the Americans about Iraq and everything else as well.
They screened a show called Afghan Alphabet which was an hour of watching full burqa'ed girls telling how Mullah Omar forbids them to show their faces, and finally one appallingly covered girl gives up to relentless nagging and shows her face to the class. It was moving. But pathetic.
Needless to say the Sydney Morning Herald's teevee critic sees the US as part of the problem. Exsqueeze me, but Mullah Omar is the problem morning noon and night, okay?
It was followed by the film Kanhahar, made by the same fellow who made the Afghan Alphabet. Totally weird and without laughter, like much woggy film making. Revealing yet more about the horrors of a backwood society which treats its women like shit.
Natch the SMH review cannot just name the problem. Not online so I will quote:
See it and rage against the wilful insanity - and those in whose name it is perpetrated.
Just name them, you wanker. You only have to remember two names so name them and do not hjide being "those" which is a cop out and code for "US too":
Mullah Omar and the Taliban.
I feel energised in my loathing for Islamic retards who think women have to be covered and kept oppressed.
