Creating torture centers and death squads in Iraq: Allowing psychopaths to abuse and rape children in the United States

via chycho

For me, the most amazing aspect of our society is that we have not yet come to terms with the origin of the horrors that are visited upon us. How is it possible that we do not understand that there are consequences to our actions? That if we do not begin to hold psychopaths responsible for creating death and misery around the world in our name, then how can we hope to have a different fate from those who we have victimized?

I believe the following paint a pretty clear picture, that the old axiom, we reap what we sow, is not just some abstract proverb.

In Iraq

BBC-Guardian Exposé Uses WikiLeaks to Link Iraq Torture Centers to U.S. Col. Steele & Gen. Petraeus – “A shocking new report by The Guardian and BBC Arabic details how the United States armed and trained Iraqi death squads that ran torture centers. It is a story that stretches from the U.S.-backed death squads in Central America during the 1980s to the imprisoned Army whistleblower Bradley Manning.”

In the United States

Steubenville: this is rape culture’s Abu Ghraib moment: “The pictures from Steubenville don’t just show a girl being raped. They show that rape being condoned, encouraged, celebrated. What type of culture could possibly produce such pictures?”

To answer this question, it is the same type of culture that creates torture centers and death squads in Iraq, as well as the same culture that allows psychopaths to abuse and rape children: Sex Abuse Victims Demand Justice

“To feel the hands of the priest on my neck, to feel his breath on the back of my neck, to hear him talk to me, to feel his body against me, to feel him violate me – you have to put yourself into that moment to understand what the Catholic Church is protecting. This is what Cardinal Mahony, this is what Bishop Curry, this is what vicars of clergy, nuns, attorneys; this is what they all got together and spoke about and in secret made these deals to protect these priests.”

    “The pictures from Steubenville…show that rape being condoned, encouraged, celebrated. What type of culture could possibly produce such pictures?”

    I have no intention of trivializing this case or rape in general, but the answer would have to include most sub-Saharan African nations, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and Japan (see hentai,) among many others, as well as many tribal cultures throughout history–if they had cameras at their disposal.

    What’s unique about Steubenville isn’t the propensity of males to rape. It’s the sadistic use of the camera.

    • Morgaine D’Clegg

      No, the sadistic use of cameras are typical. Try looking at all of the pedophile videos and pics of children being raped. Facebook will remove a breast feeding Mom’s pic, but not of a baby being raped. Sign the petition for Facebook to have a report button specific to this. And share. The only unique thing in all of this, is that it got attention, solely due to the fact……Anonymous did what the officials refused, by thoroughly exposing the ugly truth.

        Perhaps I should have specifically said “culturally unique,” but I thought it was obvious. As for your suggestion as to what I should “try looking at,” I’ll pass, thanks.

        Speaking to your general point: we may well be beyond hope.

    It’s hard to explain myself as a Warrior.

    But I would never rape nor torture. These things are without Honor.
