Military Rape: S O P (Standard Operating Procedure)
Dr. Phillip Leveque Salem-News.com
(MOLALLA, Ore.) - On Sunday, October 12th in the Oregonian was an excellent but disturbing story on this subject. The main story was about an 18-year old male Marine raped by his Staff Sergeant. I was surprised to see this on the front page of the Oregonian but NOT surprised of its factuality.
Concurrent stories were of female military with a rape rate of one in three being raped. This doesn’t surprise me either after being a private in the Army subject to arrogant and obnoxious subjugation by anyone who had stripes or brass on their shoulders. Military service is a form of slavery with no rights at the bottom of the food chain. The power of non-coms and brass can be obscene and the statement “rank has its privileges” can often be really perverse.
To confirm my feelings, I punched up Military Rape on my computer. If you want to feel your skin creep and chills go down your spine –- punch it up. It is nauseatingly sickening.
The Oregonian states that Senator Patty Murray of Washington is trying to get a bill in Congress to provide VA therapy for the thousands of female and male victims of rape and similar sexual harassment in the services. NO LUCK YET. It’s against the national interest to admit that military rape is an epidemic going from the bottom ranks up to generals. Well “rank does have its privileges” including rape.
My own experience on this subject goes to World War Two. I was a survivor of General Patton's Third Army. He said he expected rapes when we were in North Africa and one of his most (in)famous quotes [I’m cleaning this up] “a soldier who won’t f*#k won’t fight”. (see: Independent.co.uk article Panther Soup, by John Gimlette)
Retired Air Force Captain Dorothy H. Mackey, who is also an ordained church minister and who was herself raped by her Colonel and Lt. Colonel superiors, has written and posted an almost unbelievable article on this subject. Her organization STAAAMP knows of over 40 U.S. Generals, Admirals and Colonels who have been given immunity by U.S. Courts for serious criminal sexual behavior. (see: refusingtokill.net)
The Pentagon ordered Lt. Colonel Charles P. McDowell, a Military Criminal Investigator, to prepare a checklist of 57 trial questions to rape victims to damage and/or belittle rape victims trial testimony. In the meantime, the Pentagon has contrived five immunity laws with the U.S. Justice Department to protect military rapists.
In the meantime rapes of both military males and females are going on and usually the victims are killed and the death is called suicide. (see: Alex Constantine's blacklist)
It is of morbid interest to report that rape by U.S. soldiers goes back at least to General George Washington’s army in 1780. Thomas Brown was sentenced to death for rape.
Rape of conquered women goes back to pre-history. Females were part of the spoils of victory. The British Army had a prohibition of rape in 1385 but I don’t think it made much difference.
With the U.S. Army in France in 1944, 70 Army soldiers were convicted of rape and shot. This is really strange because most women in France, Italy, Germany, Austria, etc could be had for a chocolate bar or a five cent pack of cigarettes. Never-the-less possibly 10,000 women in Europe may have been raped by American soldiers. Hard to believe? NO PROSECUTIONS!
