The state’s forensic science institute registers more than eight cases a month, though most involve male victims, many of whom were assaulted by muggers using acid as a weapon.

This is one of the most shining examples of misandry I have ever seen. More victims of acid attacks are men than women, yet this article is written is as if the male victims are invisible, that the real tragedy is that there are female victims.

I can't say I'm completely surprised, but I couldn't help feel outraged when I read the above sentence. Shame on you Washington Post and shame on you for Juan Forero!

If you read what the British Army did to the people who massacred the women of the Cawnpore garrison during the Sepoy Mutiny, you begin to understand why you didn't mess with the Limeys in those days. They believed in letting the punishment fit the crime.

A similar situation obtains here, but this is what we get for letting the Lefties impose the whole value-neutral, non-judgmental schtick on Western civilization.

What struck me is they waited until some non-Islamic woman was struck in the face with acid to write a story about it.

And still they don't mention the I word.

I read the opinion a while back that we are not in Colombia to fight drugs, but to secure Amazon Basin water.

Deborah,

Was this post about the drug war or the Amazon? If not, why are you changing the subject?

I'm deep.

Don't know why we'd go all the way to Colombia for that. You can get a water basin from Amazon right over the internet. ( But please remember to use the Professor's Amazon portal! )

If you read what the British Army did...

"Be it so. This burning of widows is your custom; prepare the funeral pile. But my nation has also a custom. When men burn women alive we hang them, and confiscate all their property. My carpenters shall therefore erect gibbets on which to hang all concerned when the widow is consumed. Let us all act according to national customs."

--Sir Charles Napier

If it's treated as a misdemeanor what's to keep the women from returning the attack on their husbands? An eye for an eye literally.

Columbia is also the Panama Canal buffer state between South America and the Canal.

Panama was a part of Columbia.

Even before the Canal, Panama City was the guarded collection point for an overland route across the Isthmus that acted to protect Spanish treasure shipments to the Caribbean.

Cartegena had no other reason to be be built from the jungle except as a European Bastion to serve the Spanish Empire's interests in the Caribbean.

Anyway, the angry Columbians come by it honestly as descendants from horribly abused slaves taken by the Spanish from the indian tribes until they died out from disease and being worked to death, causing the Spanish to import slaves from Africa until they died out, but that supply lines remained open.

Frankly, I wish Ann hadn't posted on this, such a horror. As for it being 'lightly punished,' maybe the Moors or Muslims do have something to do with it. Maybe it is a residual of Muslim law toward women in Spanish law.

Wyo sis postulates a talion punishment. I think it would be male castration. Being physically 'so pretty' for the female is equivalent to phallic narcissism in the male. In some sense the drill team or cheerleaders are appropriate, equivalent displays in the female to the football game for the male.

I'll bet castration isn't a misdemeanor.

How horrific.

traditionalguy, Anyone who doesn't know how to spell Colombia has no credibility speaking about that country.
