Women in Afghanistan are choosing suicide to escape "their dire circumstances," according to a new report issued by Canada's Foreign Affairs Department. Even in the relatively peaceful region of Herat, over 80 women set themselves on fire in 2008.

Education, new laws strictly enforced and women supported by a system that protects them. The situation is beyond tragic and all the worse because these women see no hope for them or their daughters. How can we not do everything possible to protect our sisters?

Victims of rape are guilty of adultery..shut up!! We must somehow band forces and protect these women. What is our military accomplishing being over there or is it a crap-shoot because there is no oil involved?
