The U.S. envoy to the United Nations told the Security Council Thursday that troops loyal to Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi were increasingly engaging in sexual violence and some had been issued the impotency drug Viagra, diplomats said.
Several U.N. diplomats who attended a closed-door Security Council meeting on Libya told Reuters that U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice raised the Viagra issue in the context of increasing reports of sexual violence by Gadhafi's troops.
"Rice raised that in the meeting but no one responded," a diplomat said on condition of anonymity. The allegation was first reported by a British newspaper.

Diplomats said if it were true that Gadhafi's troops were being issued Viagra, it could indicate they were being encouraged by their commanders to engage in rape to terrorize the population in areas that have supported the rebels. That would constitute a war crime.

Which reminds me. Are we still paying for viagra for teachers?
Is this all they’ve got?!? It sounds like something Baghdad Bob would say...
uh oh. Satanic Rape Nazis. Accusations are fact.
They’re doomed now.
do I smell roasting stomachs?
That’s it. It doesn’t pass the stiff test.
So they are deploying chemical weapons?
no offense, but this sound like a hoax to me. Its just too perfect. Its an attempt to pile on and the example used is just silly. Can’t they write a simple story that his solders were engaging in rape. Including the Viagra into the story just make me think theres something wrong with this story
Those poor sheep!!!!!!!!
I think Rice got pwned.
this is a perfect comedy story, which makes me think the story was made up
So armies never otherwise use rape as a tactic, is this what we’re being told?
THe US DoS flacks must be the third team or rejects from a bad ad agency... This story is...pretty limp.
AND, they’ve been T-P-ing mosques with gov’t provided rolls, and worse yet, issued aluminum pie tins and aerosol cans of whipped cream, in order to smash pies in rebels’ faces. Thanks tobyhill.
Armies have been known to use rape as a tactic but usually they can accomplish that mission without Viagra.
exactly, the media will be piling on stories about how bad Gaddafi is, to create moral justification. This all an attempt to support Obama.
I remember the same thing happened during the Clinton against Saddam. The media stopped reporting on the wmd, the rape, the massacres when Bush came into office
>> Pfizer Inc.’s drug Viagra is used to treat impotence.
Ironically, they’re still a bunch of losers.
Makes sense to give the troops Viagra. If it makes them fight...harder.
How long will Qaddafi be able to keep it up?
That one soldier’s gun looks a little limp.
somewhere this will justify the government’s financing of Planned Parenthood.
It is true that Pfizer’s drug Viagra treats impotence.
If this accusation by the terminally stupid susan ricecracker is true, the goats of the middle east are in for quite a ride!
On the other hand, I wish that Pfizer made a drug to treat INCOMPETENCE that we could issue to EVERYONE in the bamster gubbmint.
McCain said this is unfair and wants to provide blue pills to the other side.
Look at the source, MSDNC. Obviously, the memo has gone round to help justify the great one’s decision to put “boots on the ground”.
Obama needs help to work up his courage.
Now that is hard to believe!
In a rational world one could agree with your analysis. However, we are dealing with Qadaffi, the man with a 40 amazon body guard. Who knows what craziness he could concoct, especially where sex is concerned.
Must be some pretty old troops.
And I thought libs were supposed to hate war? The fact they’re willing to push this type nonsense (to advance their idea of a good war) should put that lie to bed.
They have government-issued raping victims?
Now that's barbaric. Animals.

Won’t the livestock be nervous!
Gotta wonder too what the Viagra people think about this.
Stupid story. but I believe that it’s SOP in Islamic war
manual (Koran) to rape and plunder anyway.
Indeed, but it’s not their fault how their customers misuse their product. How can they keep it out of their... hands?
