My niece in the USAF returned from her first tour of duty in Afghanistan. She'll have to go back before her four years is done.
She tells the story of a little Afghani girl who was blown up by a land mine. The girl lost limbs -- whether legs or arms, I don't know, but either way it's horrific. Her life was saved by first-rate care from American doctors on base.
When the girl recovered she was released to her family. The minute the family got outside the gate of the base, the father pulled out a gun and shot the girl dead in the dirt. In her disfigured condition, you see, that girl would not have been able to find a husband.
My niece has a low opinion of the natives in Afghanistan.
