"Don't mess in our domestic affairs"

(Or so say the Afghans to the West). "Come again?" asks Der Spiegel. A hard-hitting op-ed that says that this is simply about basic human rights. None of that relativist "my truth is mine and yours is yours."

Of course, the West can tolerate a less than perfect record -- in China, say. Not that I'm saying this makes the Afghan situation any more tolerable. And some would point to the US as well -- what about Gitmo, eh? [No no no --- what Rahman is going through is not the same as Gitmo. I get that. ]
