The military men of the peacemaking contingent in Afghanistan are ordered to leave their sun glasses in barracks, since some Afghan people think that the glasses allow the soldiers to look at women through their clothes.
“At first we thought it was a joke, but then it turned out to be serious,” – the press-secretary of the Spanish contingent in Afghanistan Manuel Rodriguez said. The sun glasses issue became a subject for jokes in the peacemaking headquarters, but all soldiers received the written order not to wear them.
Anthony Marshal, the press-secretary of the British peacemaking force in Afghanistan said that the order was basically issued for Spaniards and Iranians, since those glasses “were not to the British taste.” However, despite the new requirement, there were two German soldiers on duty in front of the entrance to the peacemaking headquarters, wearing sun glasses.
