Have you even read your own link??

The police were protecting the women against a mob!!
Quote :- "Most of the men were part of a counter-demonstration. Hundreds of them charged at riot police while a cordon of female police officers held hands in a ring around the women, to try to protect them."

Has this spoiled anothe police-criticising thread??

I must admit I didn't - I heard the story from the BBC and simply Googled for a link, obviously picking a poor one.

I therefore withdraw, with apologies.

We went in to rid the country of the Taliban repression, (especially that of women), and establish freedom & democracy for all.
