This must really piss off the Terrorists

Murdoc shows us a female Iraqi police recruit firing an AK, and Breda has a heartwarming post up with a picture of a U.S. Marine teaching an Iraqi woman how to shoot a Glock.

The empowerment of women in the middle east threatens to throw a monkey wrench into misogynistic culture of the Islamic fundamentalists we're dealing with over there. The thirst for freedom and empowerment exists in all people, and in all cultures. Giving these women a taste of that, and teaching them that they're worth it is probably one of the most worthwhile things we can do for them. I'm glad to see us making a difference, one person at a time, even if the mainstream media will never cover it.

While I agree I also think there will be a serious backlash against those women who assert themselves. We have to hope they don't back down.
