On the rise of “green-on-blue” murders of our troops in Afghanistan by Muslims who are supposed to be on our side — whom for years we have been spending our time, money, lives and limbs trying to help — Andrew Bostom published some devastating information that should, in a sane world, knock some sense into those who remain senseless about the problem of Islam.
Diana West has the full story — and, as usual, excellent analysis.
From the report, we learn from Bostom that the U.S. Military conducted interviews (of course buried in a report few are reading and left untouched by the mainstream media) of American military personnel about how they felt trying to “win the hearts and minds” of creatures who have no hearts or minds:
Many US soldiers were appalled by the rampant torture of dogs and puppies they witnessed while being based with ANSF [Afghanistan National Security Forces] units. Many ANSF members are prone to inflicting abuse onto stray dogs they bring to the base for “entertainment” purposes. Other ANSF members, while not condoning the torture, fail to see any importance in such behaviors given the standing of dogs in Islam. Dogs are seen [in Islam] as vermin and many ANSF members find it inexplicable that anyone could be concerned about such “trivial matters,” and deeply resent any interference…This animal abuse is a substantial psychological stressor for many US soldiers and has been the cause of many serious social altercations with ANSF members…
US soldiers reported that they had observed many cases of child abuse and neglect that infuriated them and alienated them from the civilian populace. They made it very clear that they wanted nothing to do with people who treat children so cruelly.
Although not reported by the US soldiers who participated in this study, there have beennumerous accounts of Canadian troops in Kandahar complaining about the rampant sexual abuse of children they have witnessed ANSF personnel commit, including the cultural practice of bacha bazi, as well as the raping and sodomizing of little boys…
Similarly, US soldiers…mentioned the poor treatment and virtual slavery of Women in Afghan society, and how they found such practices repugnant.
They found it unpalatable to befriend other men who had such primitive beliefs; the cultural gulf was too wide.
They were repulsed by the abuse and neglect they observed in how children are treated in Afghan society.
US soldiers largely reported that they did not care for Afghan civilians due to these factors as well as their suspected sympathies for the insurgents.
