Disappointed, but not suprised.

I think Noam Chomsky was pretty spot on when he said back in 2001 that the United States was the world's all time leading state sponsor of terrorism. It caused an outrage at the time, but the more you peel back the layers of the onion, the more it appears to be true.

"Everyone’s worried about stopping terrorism. Well, there’s really an easy way: Stop participating in it."

I wish the U.S. had never invented boy sex parties, the word bacha bazi, institutionalized child rape, slavery, the brutal oppression of women and then forced all these grown men in Afghanistan to do all this crap.

There is no moral ambiguity here dude, even though we didn't "invent" that shit, we're allowing the MIC to do that and more with our money.

I agree.

So since we agree it's black and white in this case, when can we expect the other hundred or so threads calling out every country, culture, government, and organization involved in child prostitution?

You wouldn't want to leave any ambiguity about their culpability, would you? I mean, this is serious shit.

no, but this is our country. I don't pay taxes to other countries, nor do I vote for other country's leaders, and neither does their militaries act in my name. therein lies the difference

That certainly never stopped non-Americans from coming down on us here.

Anyway, so it's no big deal that an entire centuries-old child prostitution culture has become so ingrained in Afghanistan that they've actually got proper names for their molestation parties because you don't pay Afghan taxes or because it's not in the U.S., is that what you're saying?

To hell with the little Afghan boys, a predatory culture, lifelong scars, the perpetuation of an unspeakable cyclical practice of atrocities and kidnapping... That's all OK and besides the point as long as your tax money doesn't pay for it?

Just trying to figure out your qualifier for being the 'bad guys' and earning the honor of one of your thread topics versus just being merely organized baby rapers instead of the 'bad guys'.

hmmm... ya think maybe us paid contractors and soldiers going into towns and committing child rape and molestation of innocent civilians could qualify us as bad guys?

or maybe if that doesn't do it for ya, how bout our indiscriminate carpet bombing of civilian households in Iraq and Afghanistan? wholesale slaughter of hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians at the hands of US bombs . funny ya don't see those type of stories on foxnews too often. Pres. Bush himself admitted that tens of thousands of people have been killed at the hands of the US since the beginning of the Iraq invasion.
