I disagree with Kristoff on certain points, such as his minimizing the drone attacks. I have heard Afghani feminists speak, and the war is a huge threat to the country. A girl's education is not going to matter much if she is dead from the war. The argument to keep bombing and raping these Muslim nations for the sake of the women is far too similar to the justification used in the 18th and 19th century of the "white man's burden" to colonialize other people of color.
