Viva la Freedom

USA is trampling around the world trying to free the people of various alleged democracies... and some countries it has succeeded. Like for example, this one...

Iraq poised to legalize marriage for girls as young as 9

Decades ago, in the years after Iraq gained independence, a tradition of child marriage persisted in its hills and plains. Upon their fathers’ orders, Iraqi girls were betrothed to strangers and rivals alike to resolve tribal disputes or incur favor.

But in the mid-1970s, such acts — called “fasliyah” — were prohibited as the nation moved toward secularization and modernity.
.
.
.
n the years that followed, rates of child marriage plummeted. By 1997, only 15 percent of Iraqi women were married as children, according to the Central Organization for Statistics. This figure was the same in 2004.

But as the country plunged into the darkest days of the Iraq War, traditions emerged anew — including child marriage.
.
.
.
In fact, the rate had risen.

By mid-2013, more than one-fourth of females were married as children, and 5 percent had been wed before age 15. This rate of child marriage placed Iraq ahead of many nations in the region.

Now the Iraqi government is poised to legalize child marriage for the nation’s majority Shiite Muslim population. But the law, which some expect to pass before this month’s parliamentary elections, would do significantly more than that.

You got that wrong. It wasn't six years prior to the war... at least not prior to the current war. Maybe before some old war. But if you read the article, these child marriages were declining... meaning Saddam was doing some good, at least to the girl child. Now that the monster has been taken away, the real monster has raised its "head".

Re: Viva la Freedom

Sometimes one kind of evil needs another kind of evil to oppose it and keep check on the balance between them.

Saddam was one such lesser evil and after him, a greater evil has emerged from the ashes.

Six arrested for being 'happy' in Iran

A group of six young Iranians were arrested for appearing in a video cover of Pharrell Williams' song "Happy," the Guardian reported on Wednesday.

The video shows the group of men and unveiled women dancing on rooftops in Tehran to Williams' hit song.

Following their arrests, the group appeared on Iranian state-run TV on Tuesday, admitting that what they did was wrong and said the video was not meant to be posted online. "They had promised us not to publish the video," one of the young women arrested said on the show.

Fans have flocked to social media to express their reactions to the arrests and have begun to use the #FreeHappyIranians hashtag. "It is beyond sad that these kids were arrested for trying to spread happiness," Williams said on his Facebook page along with a link about the incident.

Journalist Golnaz Esfandiari wrote on his Twitter account "Iran is a country where being "happy" is a crime."

Since the original music video premiered, fans from around the world have created their own versions of the music video, including several versions from around Israel.
