In Muslim Afghanistan, men often seek young boys for entertainment and sexual pleasure. The practice, known as “bacha bazi” where the boys are dressed as seductive females and forces them to dance provocatively for groups of wealthy businessmen and military commanders, who then use them sexually. Purchased from poor families with money and promises to educate them, they’re seen as status symbols for the men. But by 18 they become undesirable, so many are killed or otherwise put in situations which lead to death.
As the Frontline special, “The Dancing Boys of Afghanistan” and a recent NY Times report, “U.S. Soldiers Told to Ignore Sexual Abuse of Boys by Afghan Allies,” note, despite Afghan laws prohibiting the practice, it continues to flourish and grow. Aided by US military policy, young boys brought to bases are raped by local militia, with American soldiers forced to endure hearing their screams, yet forbidden to intervene.
Those who do, such as Special Forces Captain Dan Quinn, face discipline and ruin of their military careers. Quinn beat a local commander because he’d assaulted a mother when she tried to retrieve her son who’d been chained to the bed. The Captain has since has left the military. And a lawsuit was filed by the father of a Marine who was murdered after he expressed disgust at the practice, but was forbidden to take action. In the murder investigation, the only one punished was Major Brezler, who’d sent emails warning about abuse by the Afghani commander holding sex slaves on the base. Corps lawyers opined that the commander’s behavior might be “classified information,” and the Corps has begun proceedings to discharge the major based on his emails.
Officially, the reason for the policy is to “maintain good relations with the Afghan police and militia…” It “also reflects a reluctance to impose cultural values in a country where pederasty is rife, particularly among powerful men….” But the policy has “alienated the villages whose children are being preyed upon.” And “tea boys” like the one who murdered Cpl. Buckley, see only American acquiescence, not realizing soldiers are forbidden from stepping in. But though the practice is illegal, US policy only encourages the men abusing these boys to believe they’re “beyond the reach of morality and the law.”
What’s really behind this policy, which creates angry allies and demoralized soldiers? It’s the administration’s obsession with promoting homosexuality in the military, and normalizing it throughout American society. It’s also determination to indoctrinate Americans into Muslim customs, no matter how repugnant, through “cultural diversity.” We’ve gone from “don’t ask, don’t tell” to an open celebration of all types of sexual perversion, and there seems to be no respite in advancing this agenda as far as possible, despite the consequences.
Obama just nominated the first openly homosexual service secretary to lead the Army. The Washington Post states it’s, “the latest in a series of actions taken by the administration to advance the rights of gays and lesbians throughout the federal government." At what cost is this agenda being pursued? We’re witnessing the punishment of officers who stand against children being raped, and as morality seems turned on its head, the morale, not just of the military but of the entire nation, is sinking due to depravity. This can be traced directly back to Obama, the commander-in-chief who has opened the floodgates of this depravity in the military. When will we stand against this politically correct agenda and do what’s right, despising the moral bankruptcy of our leaders?
World War 2 soldiers were remembered for passing out chocolate bars to children in the countries they liberated. Now our soldiers are remembered for aiding and abetting in the rape of children. What more evidence do we need of the evil agenda our leaders are forcing on our nation and other nations?
