    Hundreds of girls below the age of 10 each year are forced into marriage in Iran every year -- and the trend is experiencing a dramatic increase.

    According to recent data released by Iran's Association of Children's Rights, the number of girls married in Iran under the age of 15 went from 33,383 in 2006 to 43,459 in 2009, a 30 percent increase in three years.
    In addition, while 449 girls were married in 2009 before reaching the age of 10, as many as 716 girls were married under the age of 10 in 2010, a 59 percent spike in one year.

    I guess that means you can marry a nine year old in Iran now.

    I was going to say, the girls are not marrying a nine year old boy. I want to speak my mind about this but I better bite my tongue.

    I consider myself a lefty... if I had to pick a side. But christ if I don't think the entire region should just be blown off the face of the earth.
    Fucking shit show over there. And if anything, as a liberal I find their abuse and oppression of women/women's rights, religious extremism, and overall archaic and completely backward social/political/legal structure even MORE offensive.

    Maybe they shouldn't be all blown up. Maybe take out all the children and all the women under about age 20, then blow up everything else.

    I do concede that the Catholic priests are no better.
