Friday, September 24, 2021

A female Fort Bliss soldier was assaulted on Sunday by a group of male Afghanistan evacuees at Fort Bliss's Doa Ana Range Complex in New Mexico, officials confirmed to American Military News. Fort Bliss public affairs director Lt. Col. Allie Payne told American Military News the soldier was supporting Operation Allies Welcome when she was assaulted. Payne also confirmed that the soldier sustained injuries. "We can confirm a female service member supporting Operation Allies Welcome reported being assaulted on Sept. 19 by a small group of male evacuees at the Doa Ana Complex in New Mexico," Payne confirmed in a statement. "We take the allegation seriously and appropriately referred the matter to the Federal Bureau of Investigation." The FBI is investigating the incident, but details regarding the extent of the assault or the soldier's injuries have not been released.

"The safety and well-being of our service members, as well as all of those on our installations, is paramount," Payne's statement continued. "We immediately provided appropriate care, counseling and support to the service member."

Payne said Task Force-Bliss is implementing additional security measures at the Doa Ana Complex in the wake of the assault, including increased health and safety patrols, additional lighting and an enforced buddy system.

Task Force-Bliss will also "cooperate fully with the FBI and will continue to ensure the service member reporting the assault is fully supported."

I wonder if disGracie would have posted this topic if the same woman had been assaulted by white American soldiers.

I bet not.

"Like those Haitians? They are people, right?"

They're humans.

But like the Afghans, if they assault people in the country they're hoping will take them in...drop them out of an airplane back over Haiti. Or Afghanistan.

Some of these Afghan refugees...maybe they're legit. Most have no clue what they did in heading west.

Afghans in Germany. Think about this. It's a country where pork is the national food, beer is the national drink. And women can run around naked if they want.

That's not to say that some Muslims can't get past that, but if we're being honest, non-Muslim countries will not be a good fit for many of these refugees.

That would be very different.

If a US service member assaults another US service member, that's a bit different than a refugee aspirant assaulting a US service member.

Maybe the assaulters need to be put on the next plane back to Kabul.

Sexual assault is just part of the job for US service women.
They knew what they signed up for.
Suckers and Losers.
