Whoa ... what's this? Compassionate conservatism just oozing off the page at Steve's place:
Mother, daughter hanged in Pakistan
From The New-International (Pakistan):
SHEIKHUPURA: A woman and her daughter were hanged allegedly by their relatives in the Janiwala village, Nankana Sahib district, on Wednesday. Arshad Bibi, wife of Ashraf, along with her daughter Muqaddas had separated from her spouse four years ago and allegedly developed illicit relations with some people. Arshaf had frequently asked her to shun the bad practice and return home, but to no avail. On Wednesday, Ashraf along with his brother Ishaq and Riaz convinced Arshad Bibi and Muqaddas and brought them back to his house. When they reached home, Ashraf, Ishaq and Riaz allegedly hanged Arshad Bibi and Muqaddas. The Sadar police have started investigations after shifting the bodies to a hospital for post mortem.
I wonder what the "illicit relations" were. Probably talking to the neighnours [sic].
Just to remind people like Jack Layton what the price to be paid for losing this fight.
And there you go: It's critically important that Canadian troops fight and die in Afghanistan to prevent women from being hanged in Pakistan.
Steve always gets those two places confused.
