I'm Waiting For The Outrage
Let's all play along and see how long it takes for international outrage about abuses by U.N. Troops in the Congo.
Widespread allegations of sexual exploitation and abuse of Congolese women, boys and girls have been made against U.N. personnel who were sent to help and protect them -- despite a so-called zero tolerance policy touted by the United Nations toward such behavior.If even one of these allegations was about a U.S. soldier, there would be rioting in the street and CNN would be running the story 24/7.
The range of sexual abuse includes reported rapes of young Congolese girls by U.N. troops; an Internet pedophile ring run from Congo by Didier Bourguet, a senior U.N. official from France; a colonel from South Africa accused of molesting his teenage male translators; and estimates of hundreds of underage girls having babies fathered by U.N. soldiers who have been able to simply leave their children and their crimes behind.
It's not that I think that our soldiers are saints or that Republicans never do anything wrong or that there aren't idiot Christians out there. I just want to be able to watch the news and know that what I'm watching is the truth, or at least a reasonable attempt at it, instead of the usual political propoganda that is delivered under the guise of "news".
