Hope and Change: US Army Totally Cool With Child Rape in Afghanistan

As Kathy would say, remind me why we didn't nuke them after 9/11?

"United States soldiers should tolerate all Afghan customs, even if they go against American moral values, suggested Col. Steve Johnson, referring to a decorated Green Beret who has been reprimanded by the U.S. Army for “striking” a child rapist in Afghanistan back in September 2011.

“You cannot try to impose American values and American norms onto the Afghan culture because they’re completely different… We can report and we can encourage them,” Col. Johnson told The News Tribune. “We do not have any power or the ability to use our hands to compel them to be what we see as morally better.”

"The practice of influential men using underage boys as their sexual patterns, known as “Bacha Bazi,” is an illegal but common custom in Afghanistan."


"Sgt. First Class (SFC) Charles Martland, the Green Beret, is expected to be kicked out of the Army by November 1."
