Yeah, that is not going to make things better.... they are not going to start treating traitors with respect, or free their women folk to do as they please.
The amusing thing is that during WWII the civilised western force of Germany.... and I am talking general army, not the nazis... would shoot Soviet women in uniform. They did not capture any, or if they did they would be killed... sometimes sexually assaulted or raped and then murdered... no trial, no protection under international law that should have been afforded to them for fighting in a uniform... just shot... because they didn't think women should be soldiers so they treated them like armed civilians... partizans... and executed them on the spot.
In that sense the Taliban are more civilised than 1940s Germans... think about that the next anniversary of the second world war when Germany is invited and Russia is not...
Since when is a group of ethnic persons who do not wish to be governed by who is presently in power, "traitors"?
It's comparable to Eastern Ukraine, where persons do not wish to be governed by Kiev government.
