International Women's Day

First of all what does Int'l Women's Day mean or do or accomplish?  Hell if I knew so I looked it up.  This day, traditionally March 8th, is held to celebrate women's achievements.

Apparently the memo for this glorious event never reached the ladies of Baghoulz, Syria, who were gathered at a screening point there.  It is reported that a group of 10 of them, disguised in their burkas and veils and black robes (total anonymity) pointed their index fingers to the sky which in that group  is meant to mean "the oneness of God."  Only the index finger is used - could it be a truncated "Heil Hitler"? salute?

Another batch threw rocks at photographers, clearly hoping for a hit on their cameras.  They threw in at no extra cost, the news flash that the photogs were pigs.    

A female reporter who had stupidly (editor's opinion) not covered her hair had it grabbed by one of these viragos and was asked (at peak volume) "Have you not read the Koran?  Are you not ashamed?!"

Another woman took the opportunity to rail at a female reporter in jeans or pants was warned that "God curses women who resemble men!"

There are two International Women's Days - the second is United Nations Day for Women's Rights and International Peace.  Uh, huh.
