    The War in Afghanistan is Enabling Pedophilia
    October 5, 2018
    --------------------------------------
    But while U.S. military inaction to stop sexual abuse abroad would be be one thing, what if America was actively, even if unintentionally, funding rape abroad? And not just rape—what if American tax dollars were enabling the most deplorable sexual abuse imaginable: pedophilia?

    “Selling and using young boys (often dressed as girls) for sex—known colloquially as bacha bazi, or ‘boy play’—has deep roots in Afghanistan and has been widely practiced for generations,” the National Interest’s Amitai Etzioni reported in 2017.

    “A State Department report in 2010 described the extent of the problem: ‘Child abuse was endemic throughout the country, based on cultural beliefs about child-rearing, and included general neglect, physical abuse, sexual abuse, abandonment, and confined forced labor to pay off family debts.’”

    Etzioni continued (emphasis added): “It also noted that ‘most child sexual abusers were not arrested.’ American officers, who share quarters with Afghan ones, report boys screaming in agony, which they were instructed to ignore.”

    We need to end this now and let the Taliban take over. All pedophiles deserve what they get.

    You need to rethink that. The Taliban has no problem with human trafficking and kidnapping and selling women.

    What do you think. As bad as I hate misogyny, I hate pedophilia worst. This war in Afghanistan has to end. It's like the Vietnam war, destruction, life lost and disabled vets, for what?? Vietnam is still dealing with the effects of Agent Orange.
    Do you read?? Here's another article.

    Do you have links to back up your assumptions. There is no way I need to rethink it, I've been against it from the start.

    I am getting ready for work. If I get back at a decent hour then I will be happy to look up some information for you. If not, feel free to do some actual research on the Taliban. You should also look into their history of massacres.

    I have to agree with Penelope.

    The only thing war is good for is the folks that are in control of it. It isn't good for the little people. Huge amounts of profit are made off of the corruption of death.

    The heinous things we believe are going on, slavery, child trafficking, etc., they will go on, with or with out this war, but war is despicable either way.

    IN a time of war, the only thing we can be sure of are lies and propaganda.
