The World is Watching

I don't want to post the cell phone camera video of an Iraqi girl stoned to death in a horrible "honor" killing without commentary or context. If you want to watch the footage, here is a link that shames anyone who might feel prurient visual pleasure in this spectacle of sexual violence and reminds viewers about our common humanity and horror at such things. It is also worth noting that this gendered murderousness was committed by our Kurdish allies, while pro-U.S. forces stood by, as part of the spiraling sectarian violence in Iraq.

I can think of only one or maybe two good things that involve this disgusting event---We now can see who the administration is sleeping with and what they will tolerate for oil. Their rhetoric belies the truth.
