Canadian Forces Will No Longer Turn Blind Eye To Our Afghan Allies When They Rape Their Fellow Citizens!

"Canadian soldiers who witness civilians being raped have a duty to intervene, even if the assailants are Afghan soldiers or police, Canada's top soldier says."
The Star

Well I suppose you could spin this new Canadian Armed Forces policy as a 'positive'! Yup ... our little war in Afghanistan is moving along quite nicely! Our top soldier, General Rick Hillier has made it clear that when we see our Afghan military allies raping young boys or girls, we will speak out! We will tell them that we don't like it! Yes siree!

I've been following this news [seems like I'm one of the few on the right], and from what I've gleaned, this is a very isolated incident as pertains to soldiers witnessing this and not at all widespread. From what I have heard from soldiers who have been there, they have had suspicions and wondered about it, but few have seen actual abuse. Having said that, if there are abuses taking place, isn't it good to know that our military supports the intervention?

Don't be so sure! This article in National Post tells a different story than yours ... 'Freedom to abuse'
