I have never been so sick after reading an article as after this one.
How could officers be told that Sodomy on youngt boys should be tolerated because of “cultural differences”? i believe in multiculturalism but what the hell is going on?
World court inquiry sought in Afghan rapes
Former soldier Tyrel Braaten says some
Canadian officers turned a blind eye to the sexual abuses of boys by Afghan interpreters at his base
The boy was no more than 12. He wore a wig, lipstick and perfume and was dressed in a flowing robe when an Afghan interpreter escorted him to the entrance of the Canadian base in remote Afghanistan.Dec 15, 2008 04:30 AM

The International Criminal Court should probe allegations some Canadian officers serving in Afghanistan told subordinates to look the other way when Afghan soldiers and local interpreters sodomized young boys, says one of Canada’s leading human-rights lawyers.
In a story published yesterday in the Star, former Canadian soldier Tyrel Braaten said that during his tour of duty in Afghanistan in 2006, he witnessed Afghan interpreters bringing young boys inside buildings at Forward Operating Base Wilson, a remote Canadian base outside Kandahar. The boys were then sodomized by the interpreters and Afghan soldiers, Braaten said.
Other Canadian soldiers have complained to chaplains and military medical personnel that officers told them not to get involved because the sodomy was tantamount to “cultural differences.”
If the allegations are true, Byers said, they will reflect more poorly on the Canadian military than the scandal in the 1993 in Somalia when Canadian soldiers tortured and murdered a Somali teenager who snuck into a Canadian base.
anyway, I am totally ill and I do not think Afghanistan deserves any help from anyone, especially after reading this:
"“It’s common knowledge that young boys are used in this way in Afghanistan,” said Brad Adams, executive director of the Asia division of Human Rights Watch. “It’s the great dichotomy of Afghanistan. Homosexuality is treated as a cardinal sin, but it’s still common for men to have sex with boys.”
INSTITUTIONALIZED RAPE OF YOUNG BOYS?
Sorry for the all caps but I am really going to vomit and this timer I mean it.
