    it contributes to the mistaken belief that the US is in some kind of culture war with other countries over women's rights. This perception is already being used to promote wars such as that in Afghanistan...

    ...Instead we get this horror story that sparks half a dozen comments criticizing... multiculturalism, and probably none of these people has a clue what the bill is even doing.

    Thanks for taking the time to explain it to me; I see your point.

    You know, Seneca Doane wrote a great, well-reasoned, non-sensational diary about human rights in Afghanistan that went absolutely nowhere. He had a specific report he wanted to discuss and perhaps... two? three? of his respondents actually read it.

    I think your point about being careful about how what we write could be used against our interests is valid in general, but I just disagree that its applicable in regards to this diary. This diary is about a non-Arab secular democratic NATO ally who placed themselves in mortal danger by front-lining nuclear weapons for us during the cold war; yes - you are correct to point out that some people misinterpreted it, and took it as evidence of their own preconceived opinions that multiculturalism is a dead end.

    I don't think this diary was anything but a marginally 'on-topic' opportunity to share them.

    Finally - could you please diary more? I think you'd write great foreign policy diaries.
