What a load of Kabul

…The Spittoon writes about Afghanistan! They are at it again with a racist, misogynist attack on Madeline Bunting of the Guardian:Afghan Women vs rich, white, middle-class feminists

They bring forth the following witness :
“Consider this comment by Fawzia Koofi, an authentic and credible retort to Bunting:”

This of course is not the first time Spittoon, in their neo-con agenda, have misrepresented Afghan female opinion, as the legendary Powerbase profile informed us:

Misuse of Mainstream Sources

After quoting at length an interview with the antiwar Afghan parliamentarian Malalai Joya in a post, Houriya Ahmed concludes:
The deeply moving story of Malalai Joya highlights that the West should not only be fighting in Afghanistan to protect its citizens, but should help in implementing justice for the Afghan people; justice that they so desperately seek and deserve.[12]
Yet, if one reads the article itself, Joya refers to the Western occupation as an ‘enemy’, and tells the interviewer,
If she were president of Afghanistan…she would ask all foreign troops to leave immediately.
She says that it is wrong to say Afghanistan will simply collapse into civil war if that happens. “What about the civil war now?…The longer the foreign troops stay in Afghanistan doing what they are doing, the worse the eventual civil war will be for the Afghan people.”
The Afghan public, she adds, are on her side, pointing to a recent opinion poll showing 60 per cent of Afghans want an immediate Nato withdrawal.[13]

They of course previously viciously attacked Salma Yaqoob: If you can’t stand behind our troops Salma Yaqoob, get in front of them
“What I’ve never understood about zealous left-wingers is their hatred for the military. Maybe they think the military has a massive influence on foreign policy or maybe they just hate our brave men and women and their heroic efforts in the liberation of Iraq and Afghanistan. I don’t know.”

So given its support for the Afghan war in which UK and US and other troops are taking terrible casualties will Faisal Gazi, other Spittooners or their family members now enlist and put their lives on the line?

Will they heck….
