Gaddafi Troops Raping, Issued Viagra: U.S. Envoys.

If it is true that Gaddafi’s troops are being issued Viagra, diplomats said, it could indicate that they are being encouraged by their commanders to engage in rape to terrorize the population in areas that have supported the rebels.

The use of rape as a weapon during wartime has received increasing attention at the United Nations. Last year, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon appointed a special envoy on sexual violence during armed conflict, Margot Wallstrom.

the comments section of this article is interesting to me. First of all, viagra or no, I would bet money on the fact that sexual violence is occurring.  It is used consistently as a weapon of war and oppression.  And nobody does anything about it.  but nobody does anything about the violence against women in our own country, so I don’t know why I am even surprised.  I think rape should be re classified as a hate crime.
