Suppressed Accounts of Child Molestation, Rape by Afghan Forces

There was a horrified reaction across Britain last week when a 25-year old policeman called Gulbuddin working in a police station in the Nad Ali district of Helmand killed five British soldiers when he opened fire with a machine gun on them. But the reason he did so, according to Christina Lamb in The Sunday Times, citing two Afghans who knew Gulbuddin, was that he had been brutally beaten, sodomised and sexually molested by a senior Afghan officer whom he regarded as being protected by the British.

Corruption and mismanagement do not just mean that the police are on the take or that no contract is awarded without a bribe. It is much worse than that. For instance, one reason Afghan villagers prefer to deal with the Taliban rather than the government security forces is that the latter have a habit of seizing their sons at checkpoints and sodomizing them.

Western military officials eager to show success in training the Afghan army and police have reportedly suppressed for years accounts from Canadian troops that the newly trained security forces are raping young boys.

What's with all the sodomizing going around? Seriously. You have the CIA sodomizing people with broken bottles, detainees being sodomized at Gitmo... Apparently it's a tool that has no boarders, as we see here.

It doesn't really say right out if this was a sexual act or if it was for humiliation ala CIA, although both are equally as twisted and disgusting.

I don't even know what to think about all this, I mean, if these guys are a bunch of child molesting rapists, what good is it to cover it up? When everyone leaves, do we really want these guys holding the keys to the store? WTF?

Hey, Our USA boys do it too. Look at Vietnam. We raped and lot of woman children over there. Of course this is officially denied. But in war, people feel they need to punish the enemy and torture in this way is just one way it is done.

The problem is there are no longer any mainstream teachings of Morals by our government like there used to be. Look at the videos of government 'propaganda' from the 40's and 50's. They advocate doing to church and going that is morally right. " For god and country"

We all saw those video's in school and thought they were the cheesiest things ever. But once we lost sight of Mom, Apple Pie and The American Way this country went downhill fast.

It makes me wonder about humanity sometimes, you know? Where do people draw the line when no one is looking? In a place where there is essentially no effective law enforcement to speak of and no one says anything because they're afraid of tarnishing their family honour, what won't some people do when they know they'll get away with it?

Is this a local failing, ie: lack of education, poverty, etc. in the area, which produces these sorts of people? Or is it more far reaching? Like as you mentioned, Americans in Vietnam did some unspeakable things and they didn't suffer the same hardships in their upbringing as Afghan natives.

I don't understand why so many people require the treat of punishment constantly looming from overhead to behave themselves...

This has been happening from as early as there were wars/invasions of foreign countries. You have people with heavy armament subjugating a population, unchecked. What do you thing happens?

Whatever they feel like, basically.
