Single Afghan Woman Fights Back

(Hat Tip: TROP)

My question is, where are all the men in the town? Are they such cowards that none came to help her? That all they could do is complain about financial losses?

A woman known only as Uzra killed four Taliban members last Friday (August 1) in Nooristan province before being killed along with her toddler.

According to a reporter from Fars News Agency in Kabul, Abdul Baaqi Nooristani, a top security official in Nooristan province told the media today, "A battle between a woman and Taliban militants continued for a few hours. Four militants were killed by her. She was killed at the end, along with her 3-year-old son."

After watching a family member being killed, she had picked up the weapon and fought for two hours before losing the fight for herself and her 3-year-old child.

The incident took place at night in Bargamatal area, where the Taliban have vast presence.

The local inhabitants of the area also complained that the Taliban had caused them heavy financial losses in their latest attack. (Source)

R.I.P., brave Uzra. You are more of a warrior and defender of humanity than your male counterparts.

1 When a country falls that easily it's because they welcome the invaders and i am looking at you, Iraq.

2 Also if that woman thinks that getting shot dead will save her and her son from getting raped she don't know the taliban all that well. Still, better'n living on one's knees.

3 How sad. She probably remembers what it was like living under the Taliban, and she preferred to fight back than live like that again. So sad that they killed her 3 year old son.

6 May the Valkyries fly her to Valhalla, for she is more of a man and a warrior then all of the men in Trashcanastan put together.

8 Sigh. I've been saying for weeks now that we should have trained the women to fight.
