This isn't exactly a BOTD thread, but I thought it was pretty cool that Iraqi WOMEN are serving. Sure as hell haven't heard about this from the liberal media. Just think, these are women who used to be very oppressed...............................................................

Do you guys realize that in the arab world she could be STONED to death for what you said and that you could be killed for saying it and it would NOT be murder.

Ok, I'll say it! Arab culture is TOO conservative. They need to loosen up a bit. Wow, never thought I'd say that.....

Yep, I realize it..... And I'm not an arab, nor do I live in an arab state.

So ??

I say more power TO her for standing up to thousands of years of oppressive bullshit and trying to make a difference !!!

Lot more than I can say for many of the 'MEN' over there in that ass-backwards part of the world ...


...... And she's kinda hot too, can't beat that combo
