Abduction ... Rescue ... Lawsuit

"We have waited since 2012 for somebody to understand our problems, the Kafkaesque nightmare in which we find ourselves."
"Our children have seen their mother defiled."
"God has given me and my family unparalleled resilience and determination."
"[His captors] did not even make a pretense of being Muslim [were guided] by their own agendas." "The criminals who held us, they were not good Muslims, they were not even bad Muslims, they were pagans." 
Joshua Boyle, 34, Canadian misadventurer, proto-humanist,

"Taking your pregnant wife to a very dangerous place, to me, and the kind of person I am, is unconscionable."
Jim Coleman, Stewartstown, Pennsylvania, father of Caitlan Coleman, 31

"It was amazing. He [son Joshua Boyle] told me how much his children were looking forward to meeting their grandparents and that he would see me in a couple of days."
"They kept themselves strong for so long, for each other and for the kids."
"I think it's going to catch up with them, and they're probably going to have some real crashes, I expect, but we're here for them."
Linda Boyle, mother of Joshua

Joshua Boyle, formerly of Smiths Falls, Ontario, more latterly resident with his wife in Afghanistan, distinguished himself some years ago by deciding to marry Zaynab Khadr, knowing her father was a financier of al-Qaeda and an intimate of Osama bin Laden, that in fact the family, including the woman he married was fierce in their public protestations of the justness of the al-Qaeda cause. This man seems to relish gravitating toward sympathetic support of ideologies and their supporters who dedicate themselves to mass brutality, threatening the stability of the Western world by terrorism.

But this is not, evidently, how he visualizes what is abundantly clear to intelligent minds, rather he sees a misinterpreted 'cause' to which the West is hostile, because of racism and he is averse to racism, while forgiving violent jihad because he can understand why tribal peoples who are made to suffer under the imperialist designs of the West will assert their humanity by resorting to inhumanity. For reasons not divulged publicly his original marriage was dissolved, and this simpleton married another woman who shared his delight in Star Wars.

With her he embarked on a backpacking trip, while his wife was very obviously pregnant. And while they were moseying about, why not enter Afghanistan and give aid to impoverished villagers? Leading to hospitality extended to them for a prolonged stay, courtesy of the Taliban who have a penchant for abducting people and demanding ransom. And though his daddy, as a federal court tax judge must have ample income, no word reached the public that a ransom was demanded for the release of the two adventurers over their five-year stay in Afghanistan.

This man now claims to view his abductors with contempt, accusing them of killing a child and of raping his wife. Over their five years of captivity, which in essence this man engineered when he decided to travel there with a woman heavily pregnant, he lived as tribal Afghans do; his wife held from public view as he impregnated her continually so that over that five-year period she gave birth four times. In Islam it is a man's 'right' to have intercourse with his wife; in a just world recognizing the situation they were in a caring man would abstain.

In accusing the Taliban, fierce Islamists jihadis for whom life is incidental to the obligation to Islam as well as their wholesale dedication to tribe and clan, women are disposable adjuncts to male existence, favoured by Allah -- Joshua Boyle behaved no differently than the Taliban did; oblivious to his wife's need to be respected by him, to be less favouring of his own entitlements in view of the situation to which he alone was responsible for placing them in. Concern for the welfare of any children that might result, living in such inconspicuously unhealthy circumstances?

His "problem" is well understood. It is one of warped sympathies and personal entitlements that transcend all measures of human decency. Three children have been taken out of a primitive enclave that nourished their infancy, and evidently withheld sufficient nourishment for a third, while a fourth was sacrificed to the vagaries of life among savages. His problem was one he foisted upon four innocent children who had the misfortune to become his offspring.

He does not appear to have any manner of experience in earning a living. But, given the vicarious experience he will have been indulged in through his previous marriage, the millions that the Trudeau government lavished on his former brother-in-law might inspire Joshua Boyle to launch a law suit against the Liberal government for having failed to initiate a rescue of the Boyle family from Afghanistan, so that due compensation would be paid in honour of which multiple millions would be helpful.
"Today, we join the Boyle family in rejoicing over the long-awaited return to Canada of their loved ones."
"Canada has been actively engaged on Mr. Boyle's case at all levels, and we will continue to support him and his family now that they have returned."
