I'm not posting the picure here, and if anyone does, please post the link only, out of deference to the dignity of the child on the cover.

It has been all over the place. The justifiers have been strangely silent. Pictures speak louder than taqiyya (تقیه);

Posts like this should probably be zotted for lack of information.

But, humor me.

Please describe, in your own words, what’s on the cover. I’m not likely to be any place where I’m going to see it any time soon.

OK, I am not paying attention, and I have not seen a TIME Magazine in probably 20 years, so if you refuse to say what you are talking about, I am not interested.

Girl with her nose cut off by Taliban.
In my opinion the question should be posed to NOW or such liberal feminist sites, that do not support those woman facing such punishment.

No, I haven’t. I don’t believe I’ve seen many of their covers at all. It is not a magazine I read.

Have you considered WORLD magazine as a weekly news magazine?

I was writing my comment while you were BELATEDLY posting the link to the photo.

The link to the source of your outrage should have been in your first post.

Without it, the rest of us are left to guess what it is you are talking about.

Regardless if you saw the cover or not, this is an atrocity. Pretty soon some libtard commentator posing as a journalist is going to say Afghanistan is lost and our next President will pull us out of there.

And then the media will claim that it is internal and we shouldn’t be interfering in their politics.

Where have I seen this before? Hmmm.. administration not giving the commanders what they need or allowing them to defend themselves. Each mission marred by the medias interference that we are killing civilians. Our allies bailing on us. Our President more concerned about social engineering than the spread of a radical ideology that will affect Americans for years to come.

Nope.. can’t seem to remember any other time this happened.

I think it is about time that the American public see just what kind of animals we are up against. During the attacks on the WTC, the news feeds had the people jumping off the building digitally scrubbed so it would not shock the American public. I have seen a tape that was not scrubbed and it was far more horrible than most could imagine.

It’s time to face the reality of the inhumanity of the people who oppose us. Far past time.

I don’t spend a lot of time on FR. I get most of my news from here, but I have a life to live, too, and I often miss stuff that FR denizens know about.

So, please take a few seconds to clue-in those of us who have too many distractions to participate full-time in the Aeropagus.

Wrong: The most ruthless and bloodthirsty are free to impose their interpertation of Islam on everyone else regardless of their convictions. Sort of like America when we elect Democrats.

It’s all over the nation on the news stands so it’s no secret. The diginity extends to exposing the Taliban for what it is: a murderous terrorist group.

I hope she is safe and that she gets the facial reconstruction she needs.

This IS “Sharia Law”. And, Sharia Law is supported, along with Hamas by the Imum who is building the mosque near the WTC. Something that Bloomberg refuses to mention.

You are an idiot who proves the claim that conservatives are idiots.

Why would you hide this? There is nothing to hide. This is the sort of outrage that we are fighting against. No civilized human being can tolerate this sort of barbarity.

Even here in the US where it is ok for gangbangers to cap a homie who turns out to be a snitch, they don't cut off noses and ears.

My interaction with people from Muslim countries leads me to believe that most people in those countries are at best agnostic or only weakly religious. They face the same problem that we do: the most fanatical and ruthless do not scruple at threats and violence.

As Mark Steyn points out, the children of immigrants from Islamic countries are often more religious than their parents. It's like the fact that kids of nonreligious Jews and Americans are most susceptible cults.

Clearly, most of the people in Afghanistan wanted their daughters to go to school to learn how to read. A small minority of sexually repressed fanatics used religion to impose the consequences of their anxieties on the whole damn country. Sort of like what happens in America when we elect Democrats.

I understand your point, but I don't think it's sad. It's on the cover. Even a media hermit like I am saw it, and it says everything you need to know about it. Also, the question that goes with it is very provocative. Perhaps it was in spite of everything they stand for, but the message got out anyway.

My God, what a message. I walked out of the store weeping and wept all the way home. I think it changed my life. It certainly galvanized (once again) everything good in me, including my instincts as a father and as a man. And I'm sure it has for lots and lots of other people. And this at a time when the president is looking to appease the left by yapping about withdrawal.

This cover is, to use a worn out buzzword, a "game changer." For starters, it makes every soldier a hero all over again, to anyone with a beating heart, regardless of his political persuasion.

I’m not angry at all and I’m not offened by the photo. I do however have a problem with the words to the right of the girl. It places a false responsibility on the US to ensure this never happens again. While this is an inhumane act, we are not responsible for other nations laws, religions, and actions.

Exactly. A picture like this would have never appeared when Bush was president. Democrats were against the war back then. This is to support Obongo. I bet this magazine has never had a picture this scarey before. Imagine the furor if a conservative magazine had this cover 4 years ago. The liberals would be screaming PROPOGANDA!

It might have helped to say what was on the cover. A lot of us don’t read that rag, so I haven’t a clue what I’m supposed to be angry about.

I supposed (silly me) that your post would at least suggest what it was.

Oh well, another useless thread...
