Prior to the invasion of Afghanistan women were not allowed to uncover their face, they were not allowed any education behind age 10, there were honour killings and nobody did anything. The government would blow up priceless statues that where thousands of years old because they were considered to be idols not just statues. Afghanistan was the global terrorist haven where every group out there would come for training. The ones who are fighting the US are the Taliban old guard who want to bring about islamic oppression that the US stopped. I am sure that all those women who are old enough to remember the past would rather wave an American flag than an Iranian one.
