Clearly the solution here is

Clearly the solution here is to impose economic sanctions to starve these children with no food imports until the country becomes instable enough to justify NATO bombing of infrastructure and eventually a ground invasion. Many of her friends will die or become refugees in a neighboring country but she will need to realize its for her own good. Once we are done bombing we will then bring in contractors to rebuild the infrastructure we destroyed and Blackwater security to harass the population.

Once the country is somewhat stable again we then pump their little heads full of Disney cartoons and western education to teach them that they need to be good little instant gratification consumers and to torment and outcast those who do not go along with the ideals of this new culture. Being an independent thinker, this girl will probably choose to be out casted rather than comply and will eventually be bullied into being a recluse to the point that the mainstream medical authorities will deem her mentally ill and prescribe SSRI drugs. These mind altering substances will drastically change the way she views reality and like so many other kids she may commit suicide as a result of the sudden changes in her brain chemistry.

And around and around we go...

These backward cultural norms need to stop, but we need to be very weary on how our 'intervention' in these matters is actually carried out and the consequences we inflict on other people when we do so.

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.

I don't really get these

I don't really get these appeals to emotion. This stuff has been going on for thousands of years, and in every culture and religion. Let them live like that over there. Over here, I believe they must follow our culture to live here. If the women want to submit themselves to their religion over here, good for them, but I'll die before they push through sharia law at ANY level of government, even if it's just some small town of muslims.

What? You don't get it? Let them live like they want?

Well, this is not what many people want as has been expressed by this amazing little girl. I hope for a positive change "over there". I want freedom for all people, not just people "over here".

An 11 year old, just because she is 11, is not an object to be sold. She is not under the ownership of her parents. She has a right to herself. This girl is more capable of expressing herself than 99% of grown American men.

She has appealed to my emotions, and I hope she appeals to others.

Thanks for posting the video OP.

A child is owned by the

A child is owned by the parent. These cultures demand this of their young. They either submit to the parent's will, or GTFO.

Agreed that it has been going on for years

But the difference now is that the children living over there, at a young age, can see whats right and wrong, can verbalize their frustrations and spread their stories online. This kind of exposure hopefully puts the abuse in the limelight and helps implement change in those cultures. I posted this video to show how intelligent some of the younger generation seem to be these days, regardless of where they were born.
