NATO Troops get ‘Nappy Rash’ Face the pain of Blocked Diapers

Friday, January 06, 2012
ISLAMABAD: Technologically well equipped and facility-wise pampered, the US-led Nato forces, which are already eating dust in Afghanistan at the hands of Taliban, are finding it impossible to fight as they don’t have “diapers to wear”.
A diplomatic source said that the Nato supply line cut by Pakistan has hurt the US-led Nato forces in many ways, including the severe shortage of diapers for the US-Nato soldiers.
Spokesman for the US Embassy in Islamabad when contacted referred this correspondent to the Isaf spokesman in Afghanistan, arguing that he is neither a soldier nor does know that the US Marines and Nato soldiers wear diapers while fighting their war against Taliban inside Afghanistan.
The Isaf spokesman Col Gary Kolb was also sent a question but no response came from his side till the filing of this report.
Col Gary was asked if it is a fact that the scarcity of goods faced by the US and Nato forces in Afghanistan (because of supply line cut by Pakistan) has caused severe shortage of diapers used by US troops in Afghanistan while fighting the Taliban fighters.
Although, the Isaf spokesman did not come up with his response, a Google search on the matter revealed that the diaper shortage crisis faced by the US-led Nato forces in Afghanistan was first reported by an Urdu daily early last month. In addition, a lot of discussion in different blogs is going on over the shortage of diapers, tissues and chicken in Afghanistan.
According to the newspaper report of last month, the US authorities had contacted the Pakistani authorities early last month for immediate provision of diapers.
The newspaper report had claimed that the report of the shortage of diapers first appeared in the US media but officially the report was never confirmed by the US administration or the Central Nato Command. It is said that during military operations and while fighting the Taliban inside Afghanistan, the US soldiers wear diapers to fight their enemies without unduly risking their lives.
According to one analyst, the well protected US-Nato forces riding armoured personnel carriers and other army vehicles, do not dare to get outside their vehicles to ease them for fear of attacks by the Taliban.
Despite their extreme technological superiority as well as huge number (more than 150,000 US-led Isaf-Nato forces) of deployment in Afghanistan over the Taliban fighters, the Americans have almost lost their war against a much smaller number of Taliban.
It was the shame of defeat to the US-led forces inside Afghanistan that Washington has now aggressively started pursuing a peace deal with Mulla Muhammad Omar, the Taliban leader and former head of Afghanistan.
Of late, it was no less than Vice President of the US Joe Biden, who surprised the whole world by stating that Taliban were not enemies of the United States.

‘Let Us Not Stand Between A US Soldier And His Diaper!’ Dr. Mazari Appeals To Pakistan Government

Following reports that Washington has quietly asked Islamabad to release ‘military diapers’ used by US soldiers in Afghanistan, Dr. Shireen Mazari, a longtime critic of US policies in the region, has issued a passionate appeal to the Pakistani government.
Her take is simple: United States has killed scores of Pakistanis through drone attacks and embezzled funds it owes Pakistan for war effort as per agreements, but we should look humanely at the latest predicament of US combat forces in Afghanistan.
This is her statement as received by Special Report
“As I a wife and a mother, I appeal to the government of the United States to please wean their soldiers off pampers in Afghanistan as soon as possible so that they are able to fight like adults on behalf of US military. Clearly the diaper usage is hindering their soldiering despite the hi-tech weapons they are equipped with. It is obvious the diaper is their Achilles heel! Of course the need for diapers also reflects the terror that strikes these soldiers when they confront or even search out the enemy!
I appeal to the Pakistan government on humanitarian grounds to retrieve the pampers from NATO containers and send them to US forces in Afghanistan. Or perhaps humanitarian NGOs in Pakistan especially those receiving US funding can purchase pampers locally and gift them to US forces. This would also be a small boost to our economy!
The US has embezzled us of money owed to the Coalition Support Fund. It has imprisoned innocent Pakistanis in Guantanamo Bay. Its citizens have used violence against innocent Pakistanis in the US. It has murdered our innocent tribesmen and women in drone attacks. The list goes on. But before US assets, now settled in Pakistan, accuse us of depriving a US soldier of his basic human rights, and purely on humanitarian grounds, let us not stand in the way of an American US soldier and his diaper.”
