Women with Nose Cut Off

Xah Lee, 2010-02-01, 2011-03-28

Time Mag in its 2010-07-29 issue is running a cover with a lurid image of a woman with nose cut off.

The image comes with a big caption: “What Happens if We Leave Afghanistan”. The logic of the juxtaposed caption is clear: if US doesn't meddle with other's affairs, then the world would all cut off women's noses.

The mag tries to justify the image on cover, but i didn't see any justfication for the caption.

What is Taliban?

After writing this blog, due to the lurid photos, i looked up on Taliban. Here's Wikipedia article: Taliban.

Taliban is a extremely fucked up religion based military sect. In a sense, it is similar to WASP and George W Bush of USA, Tibet under Dalai Lama, Scientology & Falun Gong.
