U.S. Military, Afghan Child Sex Abuse

Posted by Sandra On September - 28 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

GettyImages-71236634Americans are agog over the U.S. military’s decision to go along with the long-time custom of the Afghan police to sexually abuse young boys. I can certainly understand why Americans would be dismayed over such a decision, but I don’t see how they can be surprised about it. After all, ever since the national-security state was grafted onto America’s original governmental system at the end of World War II, the U.S. government has knowingly, deliberately, and intentionally partnered with evil, under the guise of fighting evil and protecting “national security.” READ MORE HERE
