Is Anyone Actually Surprised By This?

The Detroit News: Taliban name deputy ministers, double down on all-male team

If anyone truly believed, moral preening statements of the "international community" to the contrary, that the Taliban were somehow going to step away from fundamentalist Islam and include women in their government, well, there's this really nice bridge connecting the two peninsulae of Michigan that I have for sale to you, at a great price.

The Taliban expanded their interim Cabinet by naming more ministers and deputies on Tuesday, but failed to appoint any women, doubling down on a hard-line course despite the international outcry that followed their initial presentation of an all-male government lineup earlier this month.

The Taliban really couldn't care less about an international outcry, and the limits of soft power have now been demonstrated and yes, found wanting. 

Yep, the Taliban are having their very own, and very real war on women, protests of the progressive international community notwithstanding.

Doo WHAT?!?! You don't mean it! You mean to tell me that people who murder rape victims and homos are unwilling to be pressured into change by threats of preening peacocks doing some finger wagging?

Hey Aaron;

This is my shocked face.......... :| it is a warning to the lefties that all the shrieking and drama don't work to a people that don't care what the left thinks of them. They view us as weak so what weak people demand don't matter to them.

Shaking my head.

Liberals having a case of the vapors because the Taliban is not putting together an "inclusive" government when the Taliban is pitching gay men off of buildings and stoning women.

Where is the outrage over all the nameless dead-and-maimed? Not being invited to govern seems like a tiny thing compared to having 20 pound rocks chucked at you.

Liberals live in a fantasy land. This is what happens when people who have never been punched in the face seize power.
