Maj. Charles Wagenblast, a military intelligence reservist, brought home this story from Afghanistan about an Afghan colonel:
One of the colonels that we both knew had been accused of raping a chai boy, badly. They all have chai boys, it’s not some perverted thing, it’s just what they do. Women are for juma. The only time you interact with your wife is on Friday, the rest of the time it’s chai boys. He had been raping this chai boy, which is normal, but he had hurt him really bad. That caused the medical people to get involved and other forces. So he’s there in front of the judge, who is an imam. It’s religion mixed with law, the whole code of law would fit in a pamphlet and then there’s the Koran there on top of it. Anyway, his defense was, “Honestly, who hasn’t raped a chai boy? Ha ha ha.” And the judge goes, “You’re right. Case dismissed.”
Sounds like a good candidate for the next demon’RAT pResident!
Isn’t it weird that these same Muslims who rape pre-pubescent boys on a regular basis consider it a capital offense to have a consensual relationship between to adult consenting men?
What WE (in our Western culture) consider pedophilia is perfectly legal and acceptable in most of Islam.
But what we (in our modern Western culture) are coming to accept as allowable mutually consensual same sex is considered a death offense in much of Islam!

Nan, you are trying to use rational thinking to understand an irrational system. The Koran is so loaded with contradictions that any individual can use it to justify any action that they wish to justify. In fact, you can use Islam itself to justify anything without referring to the Koran at all.
Did anyone actually read the Combat Studies Institute’s interview with MAJ Charles Wagenblast that this post is derived from? See it here. The Afghans buggering little boys isn’t the only thing revealed in the interview. Here are a few other things the good Major had to say.
“…CW: We had notional security, pretend security.
AS: Oh, okay.
CW: There were no guards, no Americans standing outside. It was all Afghan, we were on an Afghan post. We were relying on them. Too bad the Afghans are killing us, and I don’t mean the Taliban. It’s the police and the Afghan Army, those are the guys who are killing us. It’s an insider threat. You can’t work with people “shana bashana”, shoulder -to-shoulder, if you are constantly wearing body armor and have five guards around you. It tends to show that you don’t trust them, and you probably shouldn’t because they’re going to kill you. Which they did, the day after I left . That was interesting…”
“…, guys peeing towards Mecca and their buddy shoots them in the back. Usually blood money takes care of that; pay the family a little money, say you’re sorry, and you go about your business…”
“… I’m going to say this as non-judgmentally as I can. This is a total Wagenblast thing, not the US Army at all. Coming in as an outside person who spent six years as a chief executive in the civilian world, our mindset of how to handle these countries to help them is backfiring, and we tend not to learn our lesson. I say this from a mentor point of view…”
All in all a very informative interview.
Is anyone surprised over the story of the bacha bazi? It was reported by the Canadian press five years ago. NPR did an entire special on the practice of boy sex slaves although NPR did try to clean it up and didn’t dwell much on the rape aspect of the practice, focusing more on the bacha bazi being more like “dancers.” British troops in Afghanistan complained how they could not/would not work with these Afghani soldiers who kept bacha bazi as their personal whores.
You can put lipstick on this pig, but the fact remains is that we are trying to pull the Afghanis out of the 7th century, and not having much success. It is time to pull our troops out of that hell hole, encapsulate Afghanistan, and let the chips fall where they may but keep the 7th century barbarians isolated to their own area.
My friend it is Islam itself that entraps its followers into a 7th century mindset. I agree with you about getting our troops out of that quagmire, in fact we need to be out of that entire portion of the world, Afghan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Egypt, Iran and Israel as well.
Okay, please explain this to me, consensual homosexual activity is a sin punishable by death. But raping tea boys and according to the Ayatollah Khomeini it is halal to sodomize a girl as young as 3 months of age.
@Nan G: I’m not sure if this makes a difference but my last boyfriend was Shiite muslim. We could have all the fun we wanted until he married but that was it.
