3. Every here should understand that Kaddafi is using RAPE as a "tool of war" --
When rape is a tool of war

"It's very difficult for women in Libyan society to report that they have been raped because of the shame and fear they feel, and it has been even more difficult for al-Obeidy," Khalife said. "But she has courageously ignored all these barriers to tell her story to the world."

And, overall, Libya should be a lesson for Americans as we watch fascism rise here --

the only way it can be kept in place is by violent war against citizens -- 24/7.

TORTURE having been reintroduced to our society should ring some bells.
