This Is Not Good

The daughter of an Afghan politician has reportedly died of her injuries after being raped by American soldiers stationed in Afghanistan's southwestern province of Farah.

US forces aboard five Toyota Hiace vans transferred the teenage girl along with several other Afghan women and girls to a military base in the province. They then sexually assaulted them, Afghan sources, who requested anonymity, told Iran Newspaper on Network on Wednesday.

Medical reports indicate that a young girl died as a result of severe bleeding that was caused by tears in her genitals from violent sexual penetration.

Two other victims were admitted to a nearby hospital and are currently receiving treatment for serious injuries they suffered following multiple rapes.

The incident comes as violence in Afghanistan has spiked to record highs since the US-led invasion of Afghanistan in 2001.

Statistics about civilian death tolls in Afghanistan are not available. However, it is estimated that between 14,000 and 34,000 Afghan civilians have lost their lives since the US-led war.

Tens of thousands of Afghan civilians have reportedly lost their lives as a consequence of displacement, starvation, disease, exposure, lack of medical treatment, crime and lawlessness resulting from the war

America..

PressTV is more reliable,

believable than the American MSM. Do you seriously think that any 'embedded' journalist would report this?

No, it's not

not by a long shot. :) Probably the same folks that brought us Sorcha Faal.

Any station that Max Keiser is on

is good in my book.

Consider the Source

It isn't just our media we have to take with a grain of salt.

Press TV's about us page:

http://www.presstv.com/about.html

Until another news source reports this I reserve comment.

Unsubstantiated... Proof,

Unsubstantiated...

Proof, source, does no one care about these things anymore, will any rumor be taken as truth now?

“One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.” Plato

The source for the story doesn't exist.

The story give no real information just a vague account. If they can identify the details of the servicemen involved, why didn't they name the Afghan politician?

This reminds me of the fake story about the stoning of a woman in a stadium in Sudan. The town and the stadium never existed.

could be a fake story

...I also could not find anything about this online.

I haven't found any other articles on this.

I guess at this point it doesn't matter the validity. The number of our country's enemies are growing and becoming more determined.

This is part of why so many countries hate us

We invade their lands and permanently occupy them. I'm at a loss for words. Sadness seems to be the norm these days.

Real eyes realize real lies

We want our country back

Every year is a year for Ron Paul!

This is the kind of stuff

This is the kind of stuff that, if true (or even just believed to be true), will make "them" hate "us" for real, and not just in some abstract, imaginary way because "we are free."

Classic statist way of manufacturing serious, lifelong and dangerous enemies; even where there were none, or at least none nearly as serious, before. And then, "we" (as in the minions) are supposed to give half a toot if this girl's parents support slaughtering, en masse, anyone with any involvement in this whatsoever.

war is hell...

Leaves me

at a loss for words. What did that girl ever do to be the victim of such madness.

This is unsupportable.

I'd say

that they should be turned over to the Afghani tribesmen.

They'll know what to do with them.

what can be said . . .

here?

I don't disbelieve this, sadly. I wonder if this sort of information came to Americans during Viet Nam; is it because *we* have the internet that we can now know what is really happening?

Horrific. It's the sort of thing that makes you want to find a new world to live in.

I have heard firsthand (from the widow of a WWII veteran) of similar atrocities in other parts of the world. Who ever thinks that war is 'all right'?
