faith restored

I find my faith in the goodness of humanity restored by the agreement Afghanistan is signing with the United Nations to stop recruiting children into its police forces. Even more reassuring is the decision to ban the common practice of boys from the age of 9 being used as sex slaves by military commanders.

Apparently this custom is more than 300 years old, and carried out openly in many communities.

President Karzai is motivated to end this reprehensible practice as it has resulted in Afghanistan being blacklisted by the U.N.

That seems like a good enough reason.

    But not to end it just because it’s such a destable, low-life, scumbag, idiotic thing to do. What kind of man could do that to a young boy? and then feel decent to go out and lead an army. that baffles me completely.
