These guys don't know why they're doing what they're doing; they're just making #### up.

They're victims of war, like any of us would be. Don't think for a second that you have a greater moral fabric than these guys. We are quite privileged to never be in situations like these.


this remind me of a story I read in the chicago trib this week. it was about a man who was using child porn to prevent himself from killing his wife and daughter. Then I read a bit more and saw he suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder after his military service in the Middle East.

Are you trying to argue that their immorality is due to circumstances beyond their control or that they have similar morals as most of us here? An argument can be made for the former, the latter is absurd. I'm pretty sure most of us aren't rapists.

But to me security is primary, and has to come before all freedoms.

I don't think I have worked more than 45 hours in a week ever. And most of the time it is a 37 hour week.

I have been saying for some time there was no nuclear weapon program in Iran. How did I know this? Do I have a crystal ball? Do I get insider info from the CIA? No I actually look at what is happening and what people in the know are saying. It's really easy with this new fangled innerwebs thingy. I do the google.

Great nations rise and fall. The people go from bondage to spiritual truth, to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependence, from dependence back again to bondage.

Most of us didn't grow up completely uneducated in the Congo, likely without parents, and hired into the military as a child.

Most of them seem to know that rape is wrong, which is why they said they would kill anyone who raped their own sister/wife/mother.

That doesn't mean they realize it's not okay for them to rape someone else.

I'm sure if you asked a serial rapist how he'd feel if you raped his mother/sister he'd be pretty pissed about it.

what about the one's using the old magic potion defense

That's their justification for it. The point is they still know that it's wrong. Just because they decide to do it anyway because of the magic potion doesn't mean they're incapable of understanding the immortality of what they're doing.

This all makes me wonder who committed more rapes: - Arab slave traders immediately after Mohammed - Vikings from 8th to 11th century AD - Barbary pirates from 16th to 18th century AD - Southern plantation owners and foremen before 1865 - Japan during WWII - German troops on the eastern front during WWII - German troops in Poland during WWII - Soviet Red Army in Poland at the end of WWII - French troops in China after the Boxer Rebellion - French Moroccan troops in Italy after the Battle of Monte Cassino - U.S. soldiers in France after June 1944 - U.S. soldiers after liberation of Okinawa - Australian troops in Japan after WWII - Pakistani troops in Bangladesh in 1971 - Iraqi troops on Kuwaiti women in 1990 - Serb forces during the Bosnian war - Troops anywhere in the Congo from 1996 to present

Don't take this the wrong way, but your life is a trainwreck of epic proportions.

You left out Sudan and Soviets troops about ten different places. I'm sure U.S. troops committed rapes in France and Okinawa and in every conflict on foreign soil, but to lump them in with some of these others is unfair. If I had to list one event it wouldn't be France or Okinawa, but in Germany in the final weeks of the war (which I think went largely unreported due to the circumstances). But I don't think they are comparable to Soviet troops or really any other you listed above, U.S. troops have always been known more for killing surrendering forces than rape.

And we shouldn't now. It's a slippery slope that leads to absolution of any crime. They know it's wrong and can stop at any time. They don't because they ENJOY IT and literally do not care if they hurt others. Flamethrower material regardless of any past trauma. If I was a serial rapist i would be too

I think it's Japan for the win if you include every time a "Comfort Woman" was raped by a soldier. ETA: Not nearly enough Australians, Kuwaitis, French Moroccans, or Blackwater operatives to be considered for this list.
