JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: REPORTS OF GADDAFI USING VIAGRA ON TROOPS TO PROMOTE RAPE – PUT THIS UNDER THE CATEGORY GROTESQUE PROPAGANDA   Leave a comment

POSTED RESPONSES TO A COLUMN IN THE INDEPENDENT
Gaddafi is not a nice guy, but I don’t believe this nonsense about promoting rape with Viagra for one moment.

It smacks of the known-fraudulent story of Hussein’s troops ripping babies from respirators in Kuwait.

Indeed, there is an absurd aspect to this one.

Viagra gives men an erection, full stop. It does not affect the mental aspects of sexual desire.

The story certainly serves to divert attention from the West’s grotesque abuse of the UN Resolution, skipping from creating a no-fly zone, to killing many civilians and attempting to murder Gaddafi.

Gaddafi is hated by some of the West’s leaders for various reasons, but certainly not because he is a tyrant or works against human rights.

From the point of view of tyranny, he has never behaved worse than a number of the West’s “friends,” and that certainly includes the country which could kill 1335 Palestinian children since 2000, conduct bloody piracy on the high seas, and keep a secret nuclear weapons establishment.

Rape, in case anyone missed the fact, has always, always been part of war.

From Troy and the fall of the Roman Empire to the Soviets rolling over Germany and the Irgun’s work in Palestine, rape is part of the story.

The notion of boy-scout soldiers, so common in American popular culture, is simply delusional, fostered time and again by the press and the governments who embrace war as a regular policy.

Apart from the rather indiscriminate draft still used in many countries to fill the ranks, men often join the military because they seek ‘action’ and adventure, and a significant proportion always are sociopaths, drawn to the attraction of situations in which their bloody dreams may be acted out.
