Those Awful Pictures

This is just awful.

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article...413501,00.html

I wish the UN responed in a very harsh manner, but as with most things they just seem to shuffle abusers out of the country without punishment.

How can I even begin to compete with Phantom of the Opera dude. I am not even scarred and I am too tall and Australian

I do not want the papers to run the pictures, but I would hope that the bastards (I tell you now that I consider using the word that rhymes with brunt) are brought to justice and that we can wake up to the sickness that resides in the UN.

this seems to be an ongoing problem with foreign/UN troops in war torn countries, but only rarely do the stories come to the general public's attention.

certain members of the UN peacekeeping forces in bosnia were found to be involved in sex trafficking, both as costumers and as profiteers. the UN is willing to go to great lengths to keep these dirty little secrets under wraps.

Too revolting for words. The very ones supposed to be providing safety are perpertrating the most vile abuse on the most vulnerable. My heart breaks.

What are the pictures of? I'd like to know before I just burn some images into my head that I can't ever get out of there again.

Oh, I didn't realize the link was to a news article. I thought there was actually going to be pictures and I didn't want to click on them and view something I'd rather not ever visualize.

This is disgusting.

This world is headed straight to Hell. And scumbags like this are greasing the skids.

I hope the perps get the maximum penalty. And that pedophile should be hanged. There is no excuse whatsoever for this.

awful article...

Power abuse, yes, that's one of the problems.
it's not only in "common troops" but also in the ones you expect to have high moral value.

Another occasion lost to do something good.
I just can't imagine what the kids will have to deal with in their future...

Why isn't it possible to teach the soldiers not only how to fight, but also how to respect human rights?
