I see that people cannot even watch dogs mauling each other to death without being attacked in Afghanistan (Irish Independent, February 18).
Normally I would sympathise with people who are doing their shopping when a bomb goes off, but people who go to watch dogs ripping each other apart?
Barbarians wiping out barbarians.
As Gandhi famously said, "You judge a nation by the way it treats animals".
Indeed. And in this event, that came back on 80 animal abusers. Proper order.
In this event, to put it in nauseous post 9/11 despot minority parlance, "God punished those present for being barbarians".
My thoughts go out entirely to the dogs involved.
I wish news reports of bombs going off at dog fights would report what matters -- the fate of the dogs involved.
It looks like a strange kind of 'democracy' the US has in Afghanistan, but they are not fully to blame: the madness has to be there in the first instance.
