The articles of the Afghanistan constitution open as follows:

Article One
Ch. 1. Art. 1

Afghanistan is an Islamic Republic, independent, unitary and indivisible state.

Article Two
Ch. 1, Art. 2

The religion of the state of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan is the sacred religion of Islam.

Followers of other religions are free to exercise their faith and perform their religious rites within the limits of the provisions of law.

Hmm. What law is that?

Answer: Sharia (Islamic law). Behold:

Article Three
Ch. 1, Art. 3

In Afghanistan, no law can be contrary to the beliefs and provisions of the sacred religion of Islam.

Bingo. Right there, in bold, in the constitution of Afghanistan, written under Uncle Sucker's nose and auspices,  Islamic law is enshrined above all: No law -- zero -- can be contrary to "beliefs and provisions" of Islam -- sharia.

That constitutional article, approved in 2004, makes it official: the US war in Afghanistan, which retired General McChrystal infamously styled  in counterinsurgency terms as "the struggle to gain the support of the [Afghan] people," is, and has been from nearly the start, also a war to make Afghanistan safe for sharia.

Hey, isn't Islamic law what the Taliban and al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood and Qaradawi and Zawaheri and Hamas and Ahmadinejad and Abu Qatada and Moqtada al Sadr and CAIR and Umar Farouq Abdulmutallab and Major Hassan and the Saudi "royal" family and Sharia4Belgium and ISNA and the OIC and the whole gang want anyway?

You betchum, Red Ryder. Think of Islam as one gigantic mafia's worth of "families," all vying for power and perks, protection and payola, deals and status, and suddenly the shifting alliances, the bombs, the truces (hudnas), the "peace processes," the "Rages," smiles, assaults and lies begin to make a little sense. The whole roiling morass is in part a power play to see who gets to be boss -- caliph -- of the town, the tribe, the province ... the world.

In Afghanistan, it's Karzai vs. the Taliban. Or is it? The latest headlines from Afghanistan report that Karzai is publicly supporting a "code of conduct" from the mullahs that renounces the equality of women before the law -- no, wait a sec. There is no equality of women before Islamic law. Karzai and the mullah's latest pronouncements -- "Men are fundamental and women are secondary..." -- are strictly Afghan-constitutional. In the roaring-successful wake of Koran-Burning Rage 2012 (which deepened American dhimmitude), Karzai and the mullahs are simply flexing their sharia-compliance, paid for in blood and treasure by Uncle Sucker.
