I was of the opinion they should a week ago but then watched a programme on Sky about what Afghanistan was like when they were in power….it was not a pretty sight..
The last bit is the most horrific, how can people say we must respect other peoples beliefs when they will not allow freedom to their own people, I think we have to stay till the job is done….what are your thoughts?

Women were forced to wear the burqa in public, because, according to a Taliban spokesman, "the face of a woman is a source of corruption" for men not related to them.[3]
In a systematic segregation sometimes referred to as Gender apartheid, women were not allowed to work, they were not allowed to be educated after the age of eight, and until then were permitted only to study the Qur'an

. Women seeking an education were forced to attend underground schools, where they and their teachers risked execution if caught.[4][5]

They were not allowed to be treated by male doctors unless accompanied by a male chaperone, which led to illnesses remaining untreated.

They faced public flogging and execution for violations of the Taliban's laws.[6][7]

The Taliban allowed and in some cases encouraged marriage for girls under the age of 16. Amnesty International reported that 80 percent of Afghan marriages were considered to be by force.[8]
