This just makes me sick, and reminds me of one of the reasons I left the army in the first place.
Yeah, pedophilia for young boys has been a widespread, commonplace practice in the Muslim world for eons. Hell, when I was in Saudi, we learned this
was actually common, though thankfully, none of us ever witnessed it. Honestly, though, I really don't give a flying # about respecting their
"culture" when that culture involves the open and tolerated abuse of people, especially the weaker elements of society such as women and children.
That's where my culturally sensitivity ends. In many things, I tend to be a moral relativist, and am content to accept many differences in cultures
attitudes, even if they are far from my own. However, there are certain practices that I refuse to tolerate, regardless of culture. Sexual abuse of
children is one of those.
This fine Green Beret deserves a medal. He was approached by a mother desperate to protect and save her young child. It's not like she could have
called the police or taken the cop to court, not when this is a common, socially accepted practice. And the soldier, he didn't have official channels
to help, either. The only way to stop this from happening was to do something about it himself. Vigilante justice is the only kind of justice
available in this case. Because most people in this society seem to think it's ok to rape young boys.
The only thing wrong this soldier did was to let this child molester live. Ideally, he and a few friends would have taken this piece of shyte
somewhere and offed him quietly, then dispose of the body. It's Afghanistan. People disappear and die all the time.
The only thing the soldier did wrong in my opinion, was that he didn't
