IIRC, some American soldiers were reprimanded because they didn't like the practice of some of our Afghan "allies" busting boy punnany. After all the Baci baci practice of grown men running up in boy bussy is a cultural thing. And aren't all cultures equally valid?
This worthy post arrived in my inbox earlier but I was too busy with work to come here and reply. As an American, you're aware of how certain Southerners use tradition as an excuse to fly a flag that is emblematic of cruel slavery. Here in Mexico, we have our own stupid tradition by which someone can do horseshit-caliber labor--with barely any effort exerted--and yet the person who criticizes that laziness is like a nasty villain because he hurt someone's feelings
. Tradition can get thrown into the septic tank when it violates international law, as with the example you cited above. Even a jungle savage is born with enough of a human conscience to figure out that sodomizing children is morally repulsive.
With some of the world's worst evil, it's often a case of Mental Surrender; that is, the person's conscience bothers him/her at first, so his/her solution is to dive right into the pool of blood with the rest of the mob and immerse themselves in evil. This has a desensitizing effect that facilitates vileness without feelings of guilt, and it's common in the Wahabbism that has spread from Saudi Arabia into Afghanistan and other Muslim countries, not to mention nations with high Islamic immigration. The Saudis, and Wahabbists in general, believe that their warped version of Islam is destined to conquer the world and that they are entitled to do whatever pleases them in dealing with so-called infidels or whoever stands in their path. That means raping virgin women, young girls and even homosexual pedophilia with little boys. Of course, they're content to rape non-virgin women as well, since they're allegedly dirty infidels who deserve it
In closing, even though your soldiers are trained to kill, they were still disturbed by the evil they witnessed. That's not the case with the big shots who engineered the whole Afghan operation, though. Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and John Sununu are all sickening pedophiles who go unpunished due to their connections with Illuminati elite and, without a doubt, many of their top lieutenants are still in the Defense Dept. establishment. Although George W. Bush has never been accused of pedophilia, his dad has been implicated in a host of horrific crimes, including child sexual abuse, and Daddy George's three aforementioned flunkies naturally assumed a huge role in his son's regime. Since they, themselves, are sexual abusers of children, it's EASY for them to be indifferent to the child rape in Afghanistan you mentioned or the sex slave trade that the Saudis have run for years. As narrated in a previous post, they've reached a point where their al-Qaeda buddies openly brag about it in broad daylight...with no fear whatsoever of criiminal prosecution. That's why I say that we should at least do our part by informing others for the Yemeni victims' sake. Ideally, it could create enough of a scandal that the traders would have to back off for a while...though preferably forever, obviously
