Well, what did anyone expect? That's these peoples' religion. Women are breeding stock to them, nothing more.
A bit extreme, over-exaggerated, but still mostly true. Women have very few rights in Islamic societies.
The bottom line is that, after 9/11, when we had bin Laden and his henchmen holed up in that cave-complex, we should have just dropped in a tactical nuke, fried Al-Quaeda, declared victory--and came home.
That would've had some interesting repercussions, I'm guessing the entire Arab world would react by cutting us off from oil and watching our society deteriorate overnight.
As for trying to "nation-build" and "civilize" these people, Mark Twain said it best: don't try and teach pigs to fly. It wastes your time and annoys the pig.
I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that you're referring to the Taliban in particular when you say "pig" and not Arabs in general.
You're right in that case, nothing we can do will change the way the Taliban feels. As far as whether or not our actions in the region have evolved Islamic culture in the right direction, I'd say the jury's still out on that one given that it's only been 10 years and Democratic Iraq is still in a fledgling state. Some would say the Arabic Spring is proof that things are moving in the right direction though, and I think they're right.
You might counter with, "even nations which have revolted want Shariah-law based rule," and I think you're right factually. Problem is, you're wrong on the path to "civilization." The west didn't excise itself of terrible practices before becoming a Democratic Republic, it was the other way around (it hasn't even been 100 years since women gained the right to vote in the US, for instance). Unfortunately, the Democratic part is overemphasized in our efforts and the Republic part is where respect for minorities and human rights come in. A Democracy without the rule of law restraining the actions of the majority is still tyranny, it's just tyranny by popularity.
Heavy-handed approaches to dealing with Muslims around the world aren't helping the Muslim perception of a Democratic Republic either. In France Muslims are being denied the right to practice their religion by wearing their traditional garb. In the United States, they're having problems building mosques (the ground zero situation was just the tip of the iceberg) for worship and with general vandalism. The actions of the west sends a terrible message to these fledgling countries: being a Democracy is all about using your power to enshrine your beliefs in your society in order to insulate the power structure of your religion and traditions.
Expressing outrage over stuff like this is a good thing. We need to hold Muslims responsible for the horrible human rights abuses that are going on in their country. However, it rings a little hollow to be doing this while we're abusing the rights of Muslims on our nation's soil. As long as we torture, hold people indefinitely without trial in Guantanamo, and prop up regimes which oppress the human rights of Muslims in their homeland (Saudi Arabia and arguably Israel if you're at all fair about how they're handling the Palestinian situation), we really don't have much room to evangelize about our beautiful ideals -- even if we are light years ahead of them when it comes to achieving the ever-coveted status of "civilized."
