“Women and girls, especially young girls, are the most unprotected people of Afghanistan. They are raped, kidnapped and murdered,” Shaima says.
Just last week, a 3-year-old girl was kidnapped and raped by unidentified men, a government official confirms. The toddler was later released and, the official says, is recovering.
“Rapists are roaming around with impunity,” Shaima says, turning her attention to a man — said to be the son of a powerful official — who is accused of raping 22 girls in the northern province of Sar-I-Pul.
She found that sexual violence against young boys is also a problem. In what is known as “bacha-bazi,” or “child’s play,” boys are forced to dress in female attire, dance and perform sexual acts.
What’s the worst case scenario outcome of pulling our troops and just nuking the joint?
If Japan is any indication, at most we’d have to cope with some goofy monster movies twenty years from now, made by an instantly smartened-up ally who’d abandoned their death cult religion.
Alas, since Afghani IQs are markedly lower than Japanese ones, we won’t have any cool but useless gadgets, toys and cartoons to look forward to.
