Atrocities in Afganistan -- and the U.S. Doesn't Intervene!

It was one of the worst news stories...The NYT carried a front page article last week -- and I haven't seen a single mention of it on FB. It's haunting me -- U.S. troops in Afganistan have been given orders not to intervene when our Afgani allies go into a village and rape young boys.

The boys can be heard screaming the article said. In my head, I'm hearing their screams over and over again!! What does this do to the morale of our soldiers who have no choice in the matter. They are given orders they must obey. Put your life on the line for these people? Be complicit by not objecting? It's an awful situation we have created for our men -- and women -- who are out there on the front lines.

WHAT ARE WE DOING?? What about the Geneva Convention? This is as bad as ISIS!!! We should all be pounding on the doors of our so-called government officials. Stop this! Stop pouring money into Afganistan and giving these people permission to perform atrocities. Taking pleasure in harming young boys! It makes me sick!!! And our having a part in this. Where are all those people who oppose gay marriage??? Find a REAL cause.
