And also just food for thought, you can not, nor can I say this is the only time he stood up for what is 'right' , likely he had done it many times, and only got caught this time, and was subsequently punished because of the nature of his actions.

Just not going to act like there ins't consequence when you act on your own like that.


And there are people who are willing to accept those consequences to do the right thing. My 'bravery' has never been tested like that, but I think I might be one of them.

They should have beat his ass to a pulp. Too bad our military leaders including the president have and show no honor for anything anymore, except bowing down to politics from their leaders, which isn't honorable either. If the Commander in Chief steps up and lets these guys off the hook I will take back that statement, but I know he won't. That might offend some Muslim code to interfere in someones practices of the things the men of these nations do to each other, their women, and their young ones.

The raping of young boys is a custom in Afghanistan. Although, of course to them it is neither "rape" nor "pedophilia". U.S. soldiers are expected to turn a blind eye to these "customs".




sadly this is what they are pushing on to and in the countries they are migrating to.
they think marring a 9yr old girl is also fine and they are moving to a home/city near you.

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


And animals. Bestiality is also quite acceptable (in Afghanistan.)



And in Saudi. Sadly, that was something I did observe one night on hot crew, and believe me not enough brain bleach for that moment. Poor sheep.


Anyway, pederasty is sadly almost and institution in the Middle East. I don't know if it is a cultural or religious thing. But marrying and having sex with 6 year old girls, or using little boys for sex, is proof their mentality and culture haven't moved past the dark ages.

You were a soldier and a man, okay...TMI but whatever floats your boat.




Also nice attempt at trying to emasculate me, man you make me sick, if you read my post I said'" I was a soldier, I am a man"

Agree.

With allies like that, who needs enemies.

I said unpleasant conversation, how else could that be taken? Are you insinuating woman beating? Get out of here with your bull# she suggested I was a tranny, out side the message board id tell her exactly what i feel, she attacked me personally.

You really want to know I'll tell you, I deal with clients daily in the IT world,and I have certain women who don't like my attitude they are secretary's to big wigs, and when I walk into their offices and I am being hounded by them,I hold my hand up and keep walking.

Do you know why I can do that? Because I take care of my business, and I know what their problems are and they are user created, and no one says a damn word to me, people don't like me because of my attitude and you are certainly one of them.

If you don't like me or she doesn't like me pound sand, I've done nothing wrong. I won't put up with your feel good I'm gonna stand up for people rhetoric because you have no moral ground in this, get lost come back when you have something better.

I didn't threaten her you got all twisted and assumed I did stop acting like a child and grow up.

Absolutely disgusting...

Here's an update from the NYTimes on this rampant issue:


U.S. Soldiers Told to Ignore Afghan Allies’ Abuse of Boys

“At night we can hear them screaming, but we’re not allowed to do anything about it,” the Marine’s father, Gregory Buckley Sr., recalled his son telling him before he was shot to death at the base in 2012. He urged his son to tell his superiors. “My son said that his officers told him to look the other way because it’s their culture.” Continue reading the main story Related Coverage

Afghans Celebrate a National Hero, and Fighting Breaks OutSEPT. 10, 2015 U.S. Denies an Airstrike Killed 11 Afghan Narcotics OfficersSEPT. 7, 2015 Rampant sexual abuse of children has long been a problem in Afghanistan, particularly among armed commanders who dominate much of the rural landscape and can bully the population. The practice is called bacha bazi, literally “boy play,” and American soldiers and Marines have been instructed not to intervene — in some cases, not even when their Afghan allies have abused boys on military bases, according to interviews and court records.


Cont...

When asked about American military policy, the spokesman for the American command in Afghanistan, Col. 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.” He added that “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.

I am sorry but he perpetuated the idea of vigilantism. That is part of the larger problem in Afghanistan as well. He should have seen to it that the man is reported arrested and charged.

The army should have sympathy for such an emotional reaction on his side given the circumstances.

Sure raping boys should be pretty universal, but we still can't allow the vigilante justice for it.


No huh ?

Because...there are Afghan authorities and laws that would/will dispense justice for this deed ? Tell me...when would this "police officer" face justice ? I suppose on judgement day...right ?

LOL,

Justice would have been never hearing about this story and a missing Afghan Police Commander.


While I agree there are many many others who see absolutely nothing wrong with raping a child and beating a woman.. Convert or die crowd has some real shinning examples of humanity...
