Report: U.S. Soldiers Disobeying Orders to Ignore Afghan 'Allies' Raping Boys
Truth Revolt ^ | September 21, 2015 | Trey Sanchez

Told to look away: "It's their culture."

Showcasing the honor of American soldiers in what is otherwise a harrowing report issued by The New York Times, U.S. military members are facing discipline for refusing to obey orders of turning a blind eye to Afghan "allies" who are keeping young boys as sex slaves.

Bacha bazi, translated literally as "boy play," is considered the norm among Afghan police officers in the region. The practice has even been brazenly carried out on military bases. These "allies," Afghani militia men organized to fight the Taliban, are armed and set in charge as commanders in villages and remain unfettered in their pursuits. But because bacha bazi is a cultural staple, Marines and other American soldiers "have been instructed not to intervene," according to the NYT.

Dan Quinn is one of those featured in the report. He left the military after being "relieved of his command" as Army captain in Afghanistan for beating down "an American-backed militia commander for keeping a boy chained to his bed as a sex slave" in 2011. He told the paper:

The reason we were here is because we heard the terrible things the Taliban were doing to people, how they were taking away human rights. But we were putting people into power who would do things that were worse than the Taliban did — that was something village elders voiced to me.

Other soldiers have faced similar outcomes. In fact, assisting Quinn in the physical altercation meant to protect the young boy was Sgt. First Class Charles Martland. Because he also ignored orders to look the other way, the Army opened a court case to force his retirement.

But for one, the outcome was much worse.

Lance Cpl. Gregory Buckley, Jr., along with two other Marines, was shot and killed at his base in 2012 by a 17-year-old boy brought in as a slave of an abusive Afghan commander. Repeated warnings of what was happening over several weeks, along with the knowledge of this commander's past grievances, were ignored by officials. As a result, the boy grabbed a rifle and killed three American soldiers.

During his last call home, Buckley told his father, "At night we can hear [the boys] screaming, but we’re not allowed to do anything about it."

Buckley's father believes his son was executed because the boy viewed the Marines as guilty by association. “They don’t know our Marines are sick to their stomachs,” the father added. "My son said that his officers told him to look the other way because it's their culture."

A former Marine speaking on condition of anonymity told the NYT, "The bigger picture was fighting the Taliban. It wasn't to stop molestation."

Col. Brian Tribus, a spokesman for the American command in Afghanistan, is quoted in the report giving a defense of the military's official position:

“Generally, allegations of child sexual abuse by Afghan military or police personnel would be a matter of domestic Afghan criminal law.” He added that “there would be no express requirement that U.S. military personnel in Afghanistan report it.” An exception, he said, is when rape is being used as a weapon of war.

The American policy of nonintervention is intended to maintain good relations with the Afghan police and militia units the United States has trained to fight the Taliban. It also reflects a reluctance to impose cultural values in a country where pederasty is rife, particularly among powerful men, for whom being surrounded by young teenagers can be a mark of social status.

Our guys in uniform report to a greater figure than their commanding officers in situations like this.

Good for them having a moral compass.

Wonder if the current Obama nominee for the Army will actually order soldiers to help the Afghans conduct their rape?

We train our soldiers to respect certain standards in human behavior and then expect them to ignore these same standards?

It's a matter of national shame we don't have commanders like Sir Charles Napier of the English army in India.

A story for which Napier is often noted involved Hindu priests complaining to him about the prohibition of Sati by British authorities. This was the custom of burning a widow alive on the funeral pyre of her husband. As first recounted by his brother William, he replied:

"Be it so. This burning of widows is your custom; prepare the funeral pile. But my nation has also a custom. When men burn women alive we hang them, and confiscate all their property. My carpenters shall therefore erect gibbets on which to hang all concerned when the widow is consumed. Let us all act according to national customs."

Another example of how America is losing its soul and turning its back on God.

WHO in the Pentagon gave the 'look the other way' order? He needs to be tried with the deserter... two lowlifes... two pieces of filth...

You know why the Afghans are raping all the boys ?

Because the UN Soldiers already raped all the little girls.

A guy I know came back talking about this 5-6 years ago. He said in the mornings there would be used condoms laying all over their bunkroom floors. He was truly grossed out and said he was glad he didn’t have to go back any more because he was getting out of the army

Yes. There are still some really good, Christian males in our military since they did not grow up seeing “homosexual marriage” as little kids. They can still discern “Good and Evil”.

But that is why obama took off the restrictions of sodomy and bestiality from the military, so that sodomites could be put in top command (so they can rape the new recruits and condition them to be brutal to even women and children). Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely and with all Christian Ethics thrown out-—nothing can stop the Evil.

The British navy had to kill the sodomites to end the raping of the young recruits and the boys on the ships, it got so bad. And as Machiavelli stated, it is essential to promote Virtue in the military and now we promote vice and evil, vile, unnatural muslim/pagan behaviors.

All fascist groups were founded by the godless homosexuals, like the Bolsheviks and Nazi SA/SS and the Samurai-—always about the little boys-—as it was for the Greeks, who groomed and trained the boys.

All muslims are homosexual-—they hate and mutilate women and all haters of women practice polygamy-—women are breeders only. Companionship is only with males and boys. All sexist cultures are homosexual and boys are trained and groomed for the “lifestyle” that becomes “normal” after years of abuse.

The term “homosexual” was invented by the sodomites in Germany where the vice was prevalent and they wanted to normalize the behavior in Christian nations. All the gender “theory” is pure Marxism to destroy Truth/God and science and normalize evil and vice to destroy culture.

We have flipped 2000 years of Ethics-—to the pagan, muslim “ethics” with SCOTUS blatantly promoting Vice in our so-called “Justice” System.

It is pure satanism and evil and unconstitutional.

The soldiers could hear the young boys screaming.
All condoned allah, and by his sidekick’s satanic Koran, its lying, murderous pedophile inventor, and its followers. Does islam comport with the Constitution? Carson is right.

This is disturbing on so many levels. Kudos to the soldiers who ignored orders and tried to help the boys.

The way to stop this is a GoPro cam, combined with twitter. Capture the rapes, and any military Officers telling them to ignore it.

That could be a game changer. Asymmetric warfare I think it’s called.

Agreed. All along the chain of command who were in accord with this should be tried as war criminals.

Well,funny but not true. Muslim culture(s) in the Middle East are diseased. I am constantly amazed at the tiptoeing that goes on with regard to the systematic rape of boys in Afghanistan.

Your posts are always so hard hitting and just rip all the lies away to show the black and white/ good vs. evil of the situation.

If only our country would repent and have the veils of evil perversion and sodomy lifted from their eyes!

Liberal thought bubble: “It’s homosexual sex, what’s the problem?”
