    12 year old girl forced into marriage with a man twice her age, dies from internal bleeding, consummating marriage.

    Another 12-year-old Yemeni girl forced into marriage died during childbirth. Her baby also died.

    Do they have any oil? When is the invasion?

    or their state of development. We used to marry young too. Once we had roads and education and evolving standards of human rights - and less of an economic incentive to do so we dropped the practise apart from a few polygamist holdouts.

    All stories about Yemen must be read aloud as if your cheeks were full of khat.

    Why should I give a fuck?

    It's thousands of miles away and on the other side of an ocean. There's nothing you nor I can do about it. So why bother?

    so what are your criteria for caring?
    same country? same continent? 100 mile radius?

    I base it on my ability to alter or make the situation better.

    In other words, and according to its meaning in the western world, "See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil".

    Why must you force your western intellectual ideas about marriage, liberty, and human rights on everyone? Who says our ideas about these things are more evolved or that they are progressing or evolving towards some ideal state?

    Now that taking their land is ghetto, intellectual colonialism is all the rage.

    I hope you're being funny.
    Because this: "A 12-year-old Yemeni bride died of internal bleeding following intercourse" is just awful regardless of cultural circumstance; 12 years old is just too young, period.

    nothing screams madness more than forcing a 12 year old girl into a marriage with a man ( who has several wives ) she's probably never met ( who then rapes her ) where she dies.
    sounds like Manslaughter to me.
