Kabul Afghanistan: The Afghan parliament legalized same sex marriage between men and men today.
The new Afghan legislation came in the wake of President Obama's surprise announcement that all 16 million Afghan women will be leaving the country by 31 December 2009. In a brilliant political move during his European trip, President Obama convinced our NATO and EU allies to each take in some of these women as legal immigrants. The EU countries had been reluctant to provide any combat troops to Afghanistan.
President Obama was very upset over a recently passed Afghan law that suppresses women's rights. In addition to NATO and the EU countries, the USA, UK, Australia, New Zealand and Canada are also on board with the immigration plan. France has asked for more than its allotted share of women.
Earlier the US Ambassador to Afghanistan met with the Afghan president to tell him about this new development in US Afghanistan relations. The Afghan president said "what are 15 million Afghan males to do without women?" To which the US Ambassador replied "go fuck yourselves!"
