Since that time we've seen untold evidence of the cultural gap between the West and the Middle Eastern cultures as evidenced by the atrocities now being committed by supposed "refugees" from that war torn part of the world who are generally found to be men of military age who refuse to accept the cultural norms of the people who have welcomed them. So why are they like that and why do they seem to want to inflict their own sordid norms on the peoples who have offered them help? Well, each of us must decide for ourselves and since I have never been to either Iraq or Afghanistan (my service as an Army officer was prior to these wars), I thought it would be appropriate to speak of the situation in the words of a soldier who has been there.
Army medic Christopher Allard served in both Iraq and Afghanistan and writes of his experience with the culture of the people he came in contact with. Now as a disclaimer, I can't positively identify the accuracy of his statement and if it is in fact his actual statement, but the way it is written (unedited) leads me to believe that it is a reasonable assumption that it is an Army soldier's words. Each of us, however, must make our own judgment as to whether we should believe it or not. It has been making the rounds on social media and I offer it since it might just offer an explanation of what we're dealing with. And if it is correct, the horrors that we are seeing unfold throughout the West and the Free World allows itself to be overrun. Here's the statement:
Christopher Allard wrote, "I don't typically go on rants or express my political beliefs here, but I just have to get this off my mind. As some of you know, I'm active duty Army. Aside from that, I am a medic. I've spent 3 years of my life overseas in both Afghanistan and Iraq. I've seen some pretty atrocious sites caused by war, from both sides. I've picked up blown up body parts of friends and I've saved the lives of guys who were trying to kill me and my guys right before I was keeping them from their 72 virgins or whatever they believe awaits them on the other side. Here is an unbiased truthful view to the Syrian refugee situation. My first deployment to Iraq, in 2006, my unit voluntarily ran a childrens burn clinic outside of the FOB. It was a constant target for attacks. You would think that people wouldn't shoot mortars or rockets at their own children, but you would be wrong. We saw hundreds of children, from infants to 18 year olds. The overwhelming majority of the kids we saw (90% or better) were clear cases of abuse. These parents were literally dunking their kids in boiling water, or throwing hot chai at their kids faces... Yes, we're talking about babies, toddlers, kids not even old enough to understand why their parents would do these things to them. HUNDREDS of kids... We saw quite a few of these kids that were sexually abused, both girls and boys. Their parents acted if nothing was wrong with this, even when confronted by our doctors. This is the mentality of their society, not the viewpoint of a few individuals... these beliefs have been accepted to the vast majority of these people. Many were educated, well dressed, well spoken men, but yet, they still raped their own children, and kept chai boys (if you don't know what that means, google it.) During that deployment, we also captured the 3rd largest EFP cache that had ever been captured. There were hundreds of copper plates, homemade explosives, fake curbs to house the EFP's, hundreds of mortars and rockets and howitzer rounds, even an anti-aircraft gun. All of these things came from one place, Syria. Almost every single IED or EFP we found or hit could be traced back to Syria... A lot of the terrorists we captured were from SYRIA... Imagine that. Fast forward a couple years, and I find myself in Helmand Province, in Afghanistan... We had a group of Afghani's that were paid to help guard our little mud hut in the middle of an Afghan village (I wasn't on a fob) These guys also kept a "chai boy" A boy, about 11 years old, who was there to serve these guys sexually. We heard him being sexually assaulted many times, but there was nothing we could do about it. We asked the police, the Afghan Army, and we were told the same thing every time.... it's their culture, and accepted as the norm.... Once again, we captured Syrian made explosives, weapons, and other items... We found Syrian passports during raids... And people out there want us to let these people into the US, with our kids, and near our wives. Near our schools, near our churches, synogogues, malls. Places where we should never have to fear being blown up, shot, kidnapped and tortured... Don't forget what they did to the Egyptian Coptic Christians, or the Jordanian pilot... Don't forget about what they do to rape victims! They stone these women to death for being raped! They behead their own people. Do you think they will show mercy to you? Look at the rape statistics in Denmark, Sweden, Belgium. Facts don't lie... 97% of rapes committed in Sweden were committed by Muslim immigrants... And you want 10,000 of these people here? Even if just 1% of these so called "refugees" were ISIS supporters or active ISIS terrorists, would that be acceptable to you? Chew on it... think about it. Take a good look at your kids or your wife and decide if the risk is worth taking. Feel free to share this if you want."
If nothing more, this is a most concerning view by someone who has seen first-hand what is happening and is now being brought to the West. One only need look at current events in Europe, especially Germany, to realize that something is dreadfully wrong with the picture. It is imperative that the United States put the safety and continued existence of our nation above participation in a human "crap shoot". If we can't vet those being sent her, we should not be taking them and it is clear that we have no way to vet them. Think very carefully about this and pay attention. It could be your life and nation next. God bless you all.
