We American feminists have allowed ourselves to be dragged into two wars within less than ten years.  The pretext is that the U.S. is making life better for Iraqi and Afghan women, by killing their sons, husbands and marriage prospects.
 Afghan feminist and politician, Malalai Joya, wrote in a new book called: A Woman Among Warlords: The Extraordinary Story of an Afghan Who Dared to Raise Her Voice:
"I know that Obama's election has brought great hopes to peace-loving people in the United States," she writes. "But for Afghans, Obama's military buildup will only bring more suffering and death to innocent civilians, while it may not even weaken the Taliban and al-Qaeda."
