Longtime U.S. policy in Afghanistan allows military allies to rape children

OWoN: Absolutely disgusting filth. So much for US Moral Authority. It's all about protecting the CIA drugs trade and mining rights.

Shame on any and all Military Officers who fail to intercede. Young Children raped, YOU FILTHY SCUM WHO DO NOTHING. You have guns - Use them and blast this filth away! Again, more failed American Hegemony and look what it brings. Get out of world bases and go Home in shame! You ARE the problem! You are no less vermin standing by. Shoot - the - Scum!




Longtime U.S. policy in Afghanistan allows military allies to rape children

The United States has been turning a blind eye to a culture practice in Afghanistan where men of power rape young boys as a sign of status.

The practice, called bacha bazi (“boy play”), has abhorred American soldiers serving in Afghanistan. But most did nothing to stop the rampant pederasty on orders from commanders, who in turn were told by the Obama and Bush administrations to not interfere with the raping.

“The American policy of nonintervention is intended to maintain good relations with the Afghan police and militia units the United States has trained to fight the Taliban,” according to The New York Times.

The U.S. military spokesman in Afghanistan, Colonel Brian Tribus, wrote in an email: “Generally, allegations of child sexual abuse by Afghan military or police personnel would be a matter of domestic Afghan criminal law. …There would be no express requirement that U.S. military personnel in Afghanistan report it.” An exception, he said, is when rape is being used as a weapon of war, the Times reported.

The raping of boys deeply bothered many soldiers. Those that took action to stop it have been punished by the military.

Dan Quinn, a former Special Forces captain, was relieved of his command and eventually left the military after he beat up an American-backed militia commander who kept a boy chained to his bed as a sex slave.

“The reason we were here is because we heard the terrible things the Taliban were doing to people, how they were taking away human rights,” Quinn said “But we were putting people into power who would do things that were worse than the Taliban did — that was something village elders voiced to me.”

The Army is also trying to forcibly retire Sergeant First Class Charles Martland, a Special Forces member who joined Quinn in beating up the commander.

Representative Duncan Hunter (R-California) is trying to help Martland and keep him from losing his military career, saying the soldier should not be kicked out like Quinn for coming to the aid of sexual abuse victims.

  1. I am very proud of the men in our US Military who stood and acted against the continued sexual abuse they saw done by the Afghan military. Maybe the difference in tomorrow, the boys who saw someone cared enough to try to help them, as these ones will lead in their time.

    There is little wonder the conflicts that continue when abuse of children has been the norm for centuries in the Middle East. Not all, but enough it leaves a hurt across the region that some how must come to light and see these practices revealed for what they are and stopped.

    Thank you US Military for doing the right thing.
