in response to reader comment: Middle Eastern women continue to cry out for help

I am so tried of these tired arguments. You want to free Middle Eastern women by killing their children? Ask the women of Iraq who have lost their children if they would rather live under Sadam or have their children back. Which would you chose? I am mother and I would not chose Western freedom over the life of my child.

Why don't we start with the women who are being brutalized in this country. Check the stats on the rape and murder of women in this country. The statics of spousal murder and abuse, despite laws and democracy. How many girls and boys have been abducted and sexually abused, killed, tortured in this country? I have studied the statistics and it's horrific. In most of the Islamic world these crimes are virtually unknown.

The West cannot fix its own social issues which are boiling over the pot.

Let's not forget that the Middle East as you refer is relatively new on the map is regards to states. It's like criticizing the Iraqis for social concerns in their country when the country was destroyed by the West. Do your really expect seven years later for them to do what it took this country hundreds of years to do? Remember the Wild West and slavery? We didn't stop lynching blacks in this country until what the late 60s? We still don't have it right because this country has one of the largest crime rates in the world!!! Along with one of the worst histories of human rights.

The Middle East as states and not the one Caliphate that it was, is only about 60 years old!

The West destroys nations then criticizes them for not being civilized.

I have lived in a Muslim country for about a year and I have not witnessed repressed women looking for a way out. Keep your sympathy for yourself and the plight of women in this country.

Attacking Iran would be an unprovoked aggressive act. There are Jewish Communities that live well there, they even have their own hospital, secret be kept. All of you warmongers will talk much until you see the results on your door step. When YOUR children die. If Israel attacks Iran, it will plunge this world to the point of no return. We will all feel the aftermath.
