  • Obama’s military orders American soldiers to IGNORE allies raping young boys

    One of the great contradictions in many Middle Eastern countries is the unequivocal condemnation of homosexuality, which is punishable by death in a number of places, while the practice of sexually abusing young boys is widely accepted. In Afghanistan, there’s a name for the atrocity — bacha bazi, which means “boy play.” Even worse, U.S. soldiers and Marines serving in Afghanistan have been ordered not to intervene, according to a bombshell report Sunday from The New York Times. Even when the assaults take place on military bases and U.S. personnel can hear the young boys screaming in pain while being...

    My father, who saw some pretty terrible sights during World War 2, used to frequently tell me that bad things happen in war, but I don’t think he ever ran into anything like this. A story breaking over the weekend reveals that our “Afghan allies” have been engaged in a sick practice referred to as “boy play” in the common parlance. This essentially translates into abducting, imprisoning and raping young boys, keeping them as sex slaves. As if that wasn’t shocking enough, it’s apparently been standing policy for some time now that US soldiers were told to turn a...

    Before he was fatally shot in 2012, Lance Cpl. Gregory Buckley Jr. told his father that at night he could hear Afghan officers sexually abusing young boys, but there was nothing he could do about it. “At night we can hear them screaming, but we’re not allowed to do anything about it,” Gregory Buckley Sr., the Marine’s father, told the New York Times his son told him. “My son said that his officers told him to look the other way because it’s their culture.” Full title: Slain Marine’s Father Reveals Horrifying Claim His Son Told Him Before He Was Killed:...

    ISIS is calling for radicalized "lone wolves" in the United States to go to the homes of U.S. soldiers and "slaughter" military personnel.This is part of what is expected to be "a continued call" for American military personnel to be targeted within the United States.According to Fox News, one British jihadist "encouraged radicals still living in the West to use Facebook and Linkedln to find and target soldiers." The jihadist tweeted: "You could literally search for soldiers, find their town, photos of them, look for addresses in Yellowbook or something. Then show up and slaughter them." Militants in Syria have...

    7/25/2012 By David Bellow Over 35 vehicles belonging to U.S. Soldiers were stolen or vandalized this past week at the Army National Guard Armory on Westheimer Parkway in Houston, TX I encourage the local media to bring attention to this targeting of Texas Soldiers so that the thugs who are doing this will be brought to justice. Over the last 2 weeks, myself and hundreds of Houston area Texas Army National Guard Soldiers drove nearly 1000 miles one way in a military vehicle convoy to get to Dona Ana Camp in New Mexico (just north of El Paso, TX)....

    Here’s something for critics of the country’s defense budget to ponder: After I was confirmed as secretary of the Navy in May 2001, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld asked me and the other service secretaries to work with Congress to gain approval for a pending supplemental appropriation to the defense budget. This was not a war supplemental; it was still four months before the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. The Pentagon was simply running out of money. The Navy did not have enough funding to steam ships or to fly airplanes for the rest of the fiscal year. Submarines were being...

    Eric Shields, an engineer with the Naval Surface Warfare Center’s Carderock Division, never thought he would have to monitor the use of a microwave oven in Afghanistan. But that is exactly what he and his colleagues have been doing to gauge how much power Marines are using in theater. “If the microwaves and coffee pots are turned on at the same time, it could trip your generator,” Shields told a recent Institute for Defense and Government Advancement symposium. Sometimes a generator is left on too long, and the temperature inside the tent drops so much that Marines are forced to...

    The U.S. military is researching ways for its troops can use their minds to remotely control androids who will take human soldiers' place on the battlefield. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (Darpa), the Pentagon's hi-tech research arm, has earmarked $7million for research into the project, nicknamed Avatar. In the James Cameron movie, set far in the future, human soldiers use mind control to inhabit the bodies of human alien hybrids as they carry out a war against the inhabitants of a distant world. According to the Darpa's 2013 budget: 'The Avatar program will develop interfaces and algorithms to enable...

    BAGHDAD (AFP)--Two American soldiers were killed in central Iraq on Sunday, the U.S. army said, in what an Iraqi security official said was a roadside bombing on the outskirts of Baghdad. "Two U.S. service members were killed Sunday while conducting operations in central Iraq," the army said in a statement, without giving further details. But an Iraqi interior ministry official said two U.S. soldiers were killed and three others wounded when their convoy was struck by a roadside bomb on the outskirts of the capital. The deaths were the first U.S. military fatalities in Iraq since April 29 and the...

    BAGHDAD: Two American soldiers have been killed during a mission in southern Iraq, the US military said on Saturday. The fatalities raised to 4,450 the number of US soldiers who have died in Iraq since the 2003 US-led invasion to oust Saddam Hussein, according to an AFP tally based on data from an independent website. “Two US service members were killed yesterday (Friday) while conducting operations in southern Iraq,” the military said in a statement without giving any other details. Sixty members of the US military were killed in Iraq in 2010, according to icasualties.org, by far the smallest number...

    The combat zone just got a little more high-tech as soldiers in Afghanistan began testing and training on five prototype weapons that fire smart bullets. Army officials are calling the XM25 Counter Defilade Targeting Engagement System revolutionary since it is the first time soldiers will have a smart weapon in their hands. Smart weapons have some form of a processing unit that allows them to be self-guided or, in this case, have self-adjusting sights and programmable rounds. The XM25 — which is not much bigger than a standard service rifle — fires 25 mm rounds that can be programmed to...

    Homosexual Assault in the Military Executive SummaryA Family Research Council analysis of publicly available documents-the Pentagon's own report on sexual assault in the military for Fiscal Year 2009, and published decisions from military courts of appeals over the last decade and a half-have shown that there is already a significant problem of homosexual misconduct in the military. This problem can only become worse if the current law is repealed and homosexuals are openly welcomed (and even granted special protections) within the military, as homosexual activists are demanding.Rates of Homosexual Assault in the Military Are Disproportionately HighHomosexual activist groups themselves have...

    Twelve American soldiers face charges over a secret "kill team" that allegedly blew up and shot Afghan civilians at random and collected their fingers as trophies. Five of the soldiers are charged with murdering three Afghan men who were allegedly killed for sport in separate attacks this year. Seven others are accused of covering up the killings and assaulting a recruit who exposed the murders when he reported other abuses, including members of the unit smoking hashish stolen from civilians. In one of the most serious accusations of war crimes to emerge from the Afghan conflict, the killings are alleged...

    CBS/AP) Four U.S. troops were killed in fighting in eastern and southern Afghanistan on Sunday, and a former guerrilla leader who battled Soviet invaders decades ago was killed by a roadside bomb in the country's north. Three of the U.S. casualties died in insurgent attacks and one was killed by a homemade bomb, NATO said. The deaths bring the number of international forces killed in Afghanistan this month to 42, including 28 Americans, according to a count by The Associated Press. Sixty-six American troops were killed in July, making it the deadliest month for U.S. forces in Afghanistan since the...

    In less than 3 minutes last night on CBS's 60 Minutes, commentator Andy Rooney essentially negated the enormous personal sacrifice of countless men and women who gave their lives for their country. Rooney's Memorial Day commentary was nothing more than a hit-piece that minimized the nature of the sacrifice of Patriots--the notion that freedom is not free, and that freedom is worth dying for if necessary. While giving a nod to those who died in war, Rooney stated that, 'They did not give their lives. Life was taken from them.' In a sense, of course, he is right. Soldiers do...
