Bag’s Take-Away:
 Plight of women in Afghanistan. All that and back where we started.
via Reuters Editor’s Choice
(photo credit:  Mohammad Ismail/REUTERS  caption:  A view of graffiti on a wall in Kabul March 5, 2012. Encased in a head-to-toe burqa, the image depicts a distraught woman slumped on a cement stairwell, the work of Afghanistan’s first street artists who use graffiti to chronicle violence and oppression. The sombre depictions of Afghan women on Kabul’s rutted streets offer rare public insight into their lives, still marred by violence and injustice despite progress in women’s rights since the Taliban was toppled over a decade ago.)

Bag’s Take-Away:
As members of the GOP call for military action against Syria and Iran, the costs of Afghanistan and Iraq are strangely absent from their rhetoric. I can’t imagine why anyone thinks the American public is anything but war weary. In case we need a reminder, look at this young woman and her now fatherless child.

Daesung Lee, an international photojournalist, spent two months photographing the people of Ghoramara Island, located in the Ganges Delta region in India’s West Bengal state. The island has been dramatically affected by global climate change.

The first photo is wonderful: the clump the boy is sitting on looks just like a wave. In the second photo, the whole problem in miniature.

Bag’s Take-Away:
Benjamin Netanyahu is captured at a relatively uncovered AIPAC speech flogging the Auschwitz comparison again. Apparently, he’s holding a 1944 letter from the World Jewish Congress to the U.S. War Department in which the WJC asked the U.S. to bomb Auschwitz. The U.S. refused. See what happened? 
Iran would be just like that. Sigh.

(photo credit: Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images  caption: WASHINGTON, DC - MARCH 05: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu holds copies of 1944 correspondence asking the U.S. War Department to bomb the Auschwitz concentration camp while addressing the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s annual policy conference at the Washington Convention Center March 5, 2012 in Washington, DC. Netanyahu met earlier in the day with U.S. President Barack Obama at the White House where they discussed Iran. With more than 100,000 members, AIPAC is perhaps the most prominent organizations lobbying the United States government on behalf of Israel.)
