    I don't know whether that was a Wedding are a Birthday??? But it looked like it was a lot of fun doing it!!! Why don't they put the English so that others would know what they were saying??? It is funny how that did it with the video about the Moman that wanted to kill Americans!!!

    This article is misleading. This is not a typical Afghan wedding let alone "traditional." This is only confined to a few in Kabul. Sometimes, I feel people in the west or "prosperous" world are so unhappy with their lives and stocks even with so much bounty around them, that they feel the need to be happy by spreading and accepting lies and propagandas. This somehow makes them feel good about themselves. People there have nothing, not much, but still manage to be generous and thankful to almighty and actually live happy lives.

    "there are some traditions outsiders have to observe."
    Yes this is true.
    Western infidels aren't allowed to participate in the cerimonial "beheading" of the best man.
