Gadhafi’s Rapes in Libya and Sadam’s Killing of Babies in Kuwait

What may connect those two? Maybe that both are hoaxes to prod unwilling but well-meaning Western populations to support aggression against Libya. In both cases, known opponents pushed the stories. The only proven fact is that both government troops and “rebels” rape at least occasionally. “Mr Jamal, the UNHCR’s emergency co-ordinator for Libya, says it has not so far uncovered evidence that rape has been used as a weapon of war, although it has seen evidence of individual instances of rape throughout the country. “We have also seen evidence that would seem to suggest that rape has been carried out by both sides, but we cannot say on what scale,” he says.

Rape is not suprising in civil wars and happened also in the US civil war though nobody accussed Abraham Lincoln of using it as a “weapon of war”. It is even occuring in the US military today.

This article has more on it.

Will Obama Go to Jail?
Unlikely, but he will get a chance to kill time by doing something else than playing golf.

Ten House members led by Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) are filing a complaint in federal court against President Obama for taking military action in Libya without first seeking congressional approval.

Kucinich and Reps. Walter Jones (R-N.C.), Howard Coble (R-N.C.), John Duncan (R-Tenn.), Roscoe Bartlett (R-Md.), John Conyers (D-Mich.) Ron Paul (R-Texas), Michael Capuano (D-Mass.), Tim Johnson (R-Ill.) and Dan Burton (R-Ind.) filed the complaint Wednesday at the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

Let’s see if courts can stop Caesar when ball-less (or bought) Congress does not want to do it.
