Women flogged for wearing pants

"Police in Sudan arrested 13 women in a raid on a cafe and flogged 10 of them in public for wearing trousers in violation of the country's strict Islamic law, one of those arrested said today. The 13 women were at a cafe in the capital, Khartoum, when they were detained on Friday by officers from the public order police, which enforces the implementation of Sharia law in public places. The force randomly enforces an alcohol ban and often scolds young men and women mingling in public."


We could have 100,000 troops in the Middle East for 100 years, and never impose modernity upon the region. Why do we waste young American lives trying?

Candidates Bush and Obama said as much. Presidents Bush and Obama escalated our involvement. Again, why?
