US says Gadhafi troops issued Viagra, raping victims
msnbc ^ | 4/27/2011 | Louis Charbonneau/Reuters

Posted on 04/28/2011 7:23:34 PM PDT by tobyhill

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.

Pfizer Inc.'s drug Viagra is used to treat impotence.

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.

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

So armies never otherwise use rape as a tactic, is this what we’re being told?

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

Makes sense to give the troops Viagra. If it makes them fight...harder.

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.

Most soldiers in a 3rd world army (and probably in a 1st world one too) don't need Viagra. They are young. The allegation projects too much. It is intended to demonize the enemy, of course.

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.

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.

The British newspaper referred to is the Daily Mail, a tabloid known for sensationalism.

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.

Gadhafi troops issued Viagra, raping victims

They have government-issued raping victims?

Now that's barbaric. Animals.

Indeed, but it’s not their fault how their customers misuse their product. How can they keep it out of their... hands?
