From today’s New York Times. Would it be a breech of Irish neutrality to send troops to help NATO protect women like these? Probably. Because the neutrality lobby believe, I presume, that women demanding the right not to be raped are, in the eyes of the lobby, morally equivalent to the men raping them. After all, it’s none of our business, is it? The Afghan Government has a right to pass a law permitting the rape of Afghan women, right? Still, at least they’re not being raped by NATO soldiers, which would be an outrage and worthy of a demonstration outside the GPO.
