Proportionally, we've taken the heaviest casualties, and even with the hard work accomplished, the country still seems bent on converting itself into a theocratic hellhole. Here are some of the proposed amendments to their constitution President Karzai is trying to pass: Article 132 says. “Unless the wife is ill or has any kind of ill ...

Exchange student nightmare

Think about how paralyzing it must be to go to another country as an exchange student only to learn your host's parents are crazy fundamentalists trying to convert you. That's what this kid had to live through, and despite the annoyance, he seemed more upset at the fact he had to escape their clutches and leave them feeling hurt.
