Q should move to Afghanistan, teeny boppers are legal and so are temporary marriages.
Full grown women must be too scary for him to handle.

Shock
I had tried to look for this very picture a couple of days ago. I am so glad you found it because it tells more about what the UN values, and why we should not be a part of it.

John, I am not a huge fan of the UN, having worked beside them a couple of times, and as with them as a member of UNSCOM for a brief while over a decade ago.

On this issue though, I don't understand your point. The photo won the UNICEF prize not because the UN "values" child marriage in any context, cultural or otherwise. It won precisely because child marriage is one of the issues that UNICEF campaigns heavily against - and the picture, with the fearful sideways look the poor girl is giving the old, bearded dirtbag, is a great illustration of just how wrong the situation is.
UNICEF Wrote:The UNICEF Photo of the Year 2007 raises awareness about a worldwide problem. Millions of girls are married while they are still under age. Most of these child brides are forever denied a self-determined life.
So, in this case, the UN values a child being left alone to be a child, and not being forced into an arranged marriage when underage. It is hard for me to understand what kind of problem with "UN values" that you see in that basic position.
Oh. Then why don't they say so more streneously?

Warbicycle, the missing link between apes and Alzheimer has not discovered yet that Afghanistan is under your administration, therefore this pic a disgrace to yourselves. Well, hope now you know. This marriage is one result of your re-talibanizing campaing in Afghanistan.
This is a very "conservative" Islamic state.

Here,I have made the case that Mohammad married a 6 year old,but graciously waited a few years for sex(I think 9). Muslims generally do not think like normal humans. John pointed out that back then this wasn't as egregious as we would view it today and he is right,but we STILL see his conduct occurring today in conservative Islamic states.

This is why in 1803 the barbary pirates informed our consul that as Muslims they had the RIGHT to steal from infidels. From their perspective,they always will.

Yea,we see it probably in the USA,too,but not openly,it is lambasted here and this guy obviously isn't too worried about his neighbors .

The more religious the Muslim,the more 7th century the thinking. This ole boy feels this is proper and in his culture this IS proper. So is screwing under aged boys for those naive ones here who haven't friends back from Afghanistan. Openly these same folks have homosexual relationships with under aged boys,the boy is a trophy. It's a big thing in the southern provinces.

Honestly,I can't blame Mo for that perverse thinking.
