Toy Soldiers: Still In Plain Sight – The Rape of Afghan Boys

Shocking. The start of the article:

I write about this story almost every year. This is the second time I wrote about it this year. For the last 12 years, United States forces worked with Afghan police and soldiers to fight the Taliban. Unfortunately, the people the U.S. forces work with rape boys. This is a cultural tradition that was ironically prohibited by the Taliban. Once the forces removed the Taliban from power and reinstated the previous warlords, those men went back to raping boys.

Not only did they go back to the practice of bacha bazi, but they do it brazenly. They make no effort to hide what they do, going so far as to bring boys to U.S. bases and rape them there. The State Department released a report last year about the situation, however, the concern was preventing future violence against women, not protecting boys.

  1. Another example of how feminist movement ONLY cares about well being of women and girls. Can you imagine a men’s movement that completely disregards the wellbeing of women and girls? Imagine men started a movement that would condone the rape of young girls ?
    Because that’s what the feminist movement exactly is today. Completely blind to the plight of men and boys ! 100% ! even encouraging the circumsision of boys !
    Time more men condemned the feminist movement and confronted it to the best of their abilities !

  2. Realpolitik of precisely the sort seen in pictures of British troops, Royal Marines if I recall correctly but forgive me if I am incorrect, guarding weed free fields of opium poppies from Taliban attacks. No shame attaches to the troops but to those who send them to do dirty work with the face saving lie that they are fighting for the freedom of others. Hopefully, as ‘The Military’ becomes more and more politically correct, and feminised, fewer and fewer young working and middle class men will feel inclined to serve in the armed forces.

  3. As Rick says this is known in this country as a result of the series of abusive rings finally being prosecuted. Of interest here is the almost complete silence from the feminist lobby. One would presume it was a gift to them from the point of view of being a case of a “Patriachal” society which clearly doesn’t value children in the same way as the “west” . It is at least more pertinent than FGM in Africa where the perpetrators are women as it’s considered a women’s thing.
    It isn’t just that it’s boys as in fact girls from other tribal groups are raped in much the same way that boys and girls are targeted from outside the community here. It’s perplexing and I assume it’s because the whole thing calls into question “multi-culturalism”, victimhood as defined by ethnic groupnor race and would actually require the feminists to engage with a culture that would oppose them , rather than one already acculturated to gynocentrism for all the accusations of mysogyny.

  4. This behaviour is on the lowest end of low but what makes it even more sickening is that if it were girls involved then Hillary Clinton, Whateverhernameis Obama and all of the rest of the screeching harpies would be setting off nukes, local culture or no, scoring political ‘outrage’ points left, right and centre. Their silence speaks volumes.

  5. Knowing the culture in Afghanistan and Pakistan, when the Rotherham and Oxfordshire stories broke I deliberately looked at the reports to see if there were boys among the victims – and there were, of course. What the naïve acceptance of multiculturalism entails is that aspects of behaviour are imported which, in our culture, are absolutely unacceptable. This issue is, I believe, intimately connected to the requirement for women to wear the veil, and the severe restriction of female freedoms, in those cultures. It is for their protection. This is why the unprotected boys fall victim instead. But this flip-side of the treatment of women in Islamic cultures is not much discussed in the ‘west’. William Collins, borrowing from Ali Mehraspand, discussed the matter here
