Code Pink Flip-flops on Afghanistan Pull Out

It seems that Code Pink finally understands that our troops are actually keeping the Afghan people safe while they build up their military.

Though Afghans have their grievances against the international troops' presence, chief among them civilian casualties, many fear an abrupt departure would create a dangerous security vacuum to be filled by predatory and rapacious militias. Many women, primary victims of such groups in the past, are adamant that international troops stay until a sufficient number of local forces are trained and the rule of law established. (Read more about Afghan women's concerns here.)

Yup, those Code Pinkos living in their nice suburban homes have nothing to fear from Taliban rape gangs when they go back home. The Afghan women on the other hand will be the ones receiving the full consequences of American liberals call to "get out at all costs."

You would figure that the "party of compassion" would do anything they can to help impoverished people that have been fighting various wars for 30 years. If we leave Afghanistan early and the Taliban takes over and rapes and murders 1000 of people then groups like Code Pink and MoveOn will be directly responsible.
