    British troops film child abuse in Afghanistan

    It only gets worse !!!


    Police are investigating allegations of child abuse by two British soldiers in Afghanistan.
    According to The Sun, two servicemen from the Mercian Battle Group have been arrested over claims that they abused two Afghan children aged about 10.
    They are said to have filmed the separate incidents and shown them to colleagues on their laptops, the newspaper claimed.
    A Military of Defence spokeswoman confirmed the Royal Military Police was investigating.
    The spokeswoman said: "We are aware that an allegation has been made concerning alleged inappropriate behaviour by two servicemen in Afghanistan.
    "The Royal Military Police (Special Investigations Branch) has launched an investigation into this. We take any such allegation extremely seriously.
    "It would be inappropriate to comment further while an investigation is ongoing."

    Allegedly, they got a boy and girl to touch them up. Fucking unbelievable. Or maybe not. It's not as if the British Army have unstained hands: From last month - British soldier stabs a 10-year old Afghan kid for absolutely no fucking reason.

    But I'm sure Socal will be along as soon as he's completed giving his lectures in moral philosophy to explain why the ragheads should actually have been buggered senseless.

    The timing of this press release is uncanny isn't it? Certainly takes the spotlight off the US Watersports Team.

    Hard to fathom. Not only the alleged act, but the fact that all of these kids think it is cool to put such things on a laptop, and share with others, or to put it on the internet. Do they not believe that someone is going to find such actions reprehensible, and report them? Are they that fucking stupid, or do they think their mates will all approve of abusing kids? This fucked up 'war' just gets sicker and sicker.

    ^^ Perhaps that'll be the new line of defence for American crimes. Instead of 'Well at least we're not suicide-bombing Taliban', it'll be 'Well at least we're not pedophile, child-murdering, snaggle-toothed Brits'.

    I'm not saying this has been leaked by your lot, BUT, if it has been it's a stroke of pure genius.

    ^^I haven't nor will I make any excuse for the bad judgment of another man. I also as a rule do not disparage the fighting men of any nation which is more then can be said of many on this forum. The act of a few are not indicative of the whole.

    I think this kind of sickness has always historically happened to varying degrees in armys, its just that ij the past they couldn't film it and put it on the internet. If you think about it whilst some people join the army because its the best if not the only career option where they live, others its a love of 'soldiering'. The problem is that there is a small minority of people in every society who have a passion for doing bad things to people, the army and police are obviously career magnets for these people, and I think we are seeing that some organisations are better than others at weeding these people out at the recruitment stage.

    I guess the only way to stop this is to install be the sense in the soldiers that if they carry out this type of crime.... a certainty that will get caught and punished

    As for the timing of the leak. I would suggest that its very significant. we have seen examples of this before.... the MI6 and MI5 laptop loss stories a few years back being a classic example. But I don't think this in anyway suggests a fit up, it looks like the allocations are very serious and very true.

    Probably not but posting totally unrelated incidents to further inflame the thread is.

    I was just preempting the inevitable, "Good heavens above. The British Army is the finest fighting force in the world and this type of thing has never, ever happened before." But well done for picking up on the most important aspect of the story: have a gold star.

    ^ Though the 'it' is only anything 'we' might do. To understand and condemn what 'they' do, you obviously don't need to have been on the receiving end of a predator attack. At least that seems to be how it works.

    good for them for moving fast!
    Indeed, though I imagine that's more a tribute to the power of the mass market press than it is a desire by the MOD to see justice done.
