Underage Marriage in Afghanistan

According the United Nations, more than 45% of all marriage in Afghanistan involve girls under the age of 16. Some girls as young as six are being married off as “property” arrangements to resolve disputes between families.
Everytime I hear a story like this, I think of living in a country like that, and being one of those girls in that situation. It makes me want to break stuff.
Tell me again, why we’re in Iraq, when we haven’t fixed Afghanistan? What the hell is my taxpayer money doing? Why is my dumbass president on vacation for 5 weeks when there are little girls being forced into marriage in a country we’re supposed to be “liberating?”
