Rosie the Riveter Was A Pansy!

|

Thanks to The Washington Post for giving a name to America's newest dream girl: She's Pfc. Lynndie England, the pint-sized dominatrix of Abu Ghreib. Somewhere out there, some high-powered executive who likes to unwind in his own way after spending all day at the "top" of his game is counting the hours until Pfc. England gets out of Leavenworth. Since I'm all for a happy ending, since England's family is already crying scapegoat, and since there can never be enough ludicrous excuses, I'd like to get the ball rolling on England's inevitable post-feminist counterattack:

Why haven't the pictures of male soldiers abusing prisoners been shown as often as the ones of Lynndie? Why is this administration more concerned with not offending the sensibilities of its Arab male "friends" than seeing justice for our men and women in uniform? If Lynndie England were a man, she'd be getting a medal right now!

  1. Once these idiots are out of jail they’ll have a very lucrative career in the S&M market. I’m sure the websites are already built and ready to go.

  2. Tim,

    That sounds ludicrous – hence very much possible πŸ™‚

  3. I’m sure they’ll do better on the extreme-rightwing lecture circuit. There are a few people I’ve spoken to who think what they did was a good thing, it’s too bad it’s not official policy. πŸ™‚

  4. Actually, from what I read, England’s not even being charged. She has been re-assigned to Fort Bragg, North Carolina.

  5. Story from today’s New York Times, wherein England’s friends talk about how sweet’n’lovable she is:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2004/05/06/national/06GUAR.html

    I especially liked the part about how it’s hard to believe she’d do such things, because ‘she wouldn’t even drag a dog on a leash, let alone a human being.’ Would it be considered a violation of Godwin’s law to point out that Hitler was a dog-lover, too?

  6. My first comment upon seeing the pictures was, “Why is there a 12 year old girl in these torture pics??”

  7. Did anyone else see those pictures, especially the one with the hooded guy with electrodes on his hands, and wonder why performance art and modern dance were on the cover of the newspaper? These guys could get an NEA grant once they’re out of the service.

  8. Just close your eyes and think of England.

  9. I vote for the lecture/book circuit too. She could replace Ann Coulter as sweetheart of the kook right.

  10. Like I’ve said before……”they pay for this stuff in San Francisco”. Now the commies are screaming to high heaven-go figure πŸ™‚

  11. What about this gem from the NYT article:

    Her parents said she was thrilled to go to Iraq, but has become bitter by her experiences there. So have they, accusing the government of trying to frame their daughter to protect senior officers.

    “Our government is so deceiving,” Mrs. England said. “They tell you what they want you to know. They make this person look as bad as she can. But everything she did she did because someone high up told her to.”

    Now I won’t disagree that government is decieving and is in full CYA mode. At the same time, I doubt she got orders to pose like the Fonz with bound prisoners.

  12. What I want to know is if we can coax Dyanne Thorne out of retirement to play her in the movie. Ilsa:Mistress of the Iraqi Occupation is a film that demands to be made.

  13. She was smoking a cigarette in one of the pictures! What kind of role model is that? What about the children that see these pictures?

  14. Lynndie = Jessica.

    Is it just me? Or does anyone else think that if Lynndie had gotten lost and captured last year, and Jessica Lynch had been put in charge of prisoners, Lynndie would be the war hero and Jessica the war criminal?

    Both backwoods girls from West Virginia with that fresh-scrubbed, dumber-than-dirt look on their face.

  15. Lynndie = Jessica.

    Is it just me? Or does anyone else think that if Lynndie had gotten lost and captured last year, and Jessica Lynch had been put in charge of prisoners, Lynndie would be the war hero and Jessica the war criminal?

    Both backwoods girls from West Virginia with that fresh-scrubbed, dumber-than-dirt look on their face.

  16. Apparently Lady Lynndie was having an affair with the mustachio’d white trash we saw giving the “thumbs-up” over the naked human pyramid. She was also married and divorced before age 21. Too man-hungry to be a real dominatrix. Not to excuse her, but I’ll bet the stupid bimbo was only going along with what her huggybear boyfriend wanted her to do.

    What really disturbs me, from the NY Times story I linked to, was the boyfriend: violent man whose first wife had several restraining orders taken out against him, violent man involved in various prisoner-abuse scandals at the American prison where he worked, and THIS borderline psychopath is who the army chooses to have authority over other human beings?

    Of course, since our generals have been bragging all along about our use of “torture lite” during this war, perhaps the guy’s emotional problems were a point in his favor. Lynndie’s, too. Instead of trying these fools in American military courts, I say turn them over to the Iraqi court system. (Actually, I still like my original idea of parachuting them naked into Fallujah, with “Fuck Allah” tattooed in Arabic on their backsides.)

  17. Lynndie = Jessica.

    Is it just me? Or does anyone else think that if Lynndie had gotten lost and captured last year, and Jessica Lynch had been put in charge of prisoners, Lynndie would be the war hero and Jessica the war criminal?

    Both backwoods girls from West Virginia with that fresh-scrubbed, dumber-than-dirt look on their face.

  18. On second thought, a cute little dominatrix that smokes …. any chance the DoD will declassify her number? πŸ™‚

  19. Wild Wet and Wonderful West ByGod Virginia.
    Wonder if she will get to take her sex toys to Leavenworth.

  20. With all the long-winded spewing that goes on around here, I suspect there’s at least a few sadists hiding in these woods too.

    YMMV

  21. Is it just me? Or does anyone else think that if Lynndie had gotten lost and captured last year, and Jessica Lynch had been put in charge of prisoners, Lynndie would be the war hero and Jessica the war criminal?

    I wouldn’t say it was “just you”; there are plenty of other insane people in the world, after all.

  22. Unlike Lynndie England, Jessica Lynch is a brave woman, not because of what happened to her in Iraq, but because when she came home, everybody was all set to idolize her as a photogenic victim/hero. Had she kept her mouth shut she could have earned a lot of accolades and money, but instead she spoke out with some unpopular truths; namely, that the Iraqis did NOT abuse her. That took guts, and the fact that Ms. Lynch had such courage leads me to suspect that had she been assigned to Abu Ghraib she would NOT have gone along with the sadistic crowd.

  23. Forgot to add, it sounds like Jessica Lynch was damned lucky to have been an American captured by Iraqis, rather than an Iraqi captured by Americans.

  24. “With all the long-winded spewing that goes on around here, I suspect there’s at least a few sadists hiding in these woods too.”

    Nonsense! Nobody here but us non-sadists. I don’t get turned on at all at the thought of those soldiers beating all those naked men . . .

    Oops, I had another “accident.”

  25. The behavior is reprehensible but the Orwellians among us need to remember that humiliation isn’t torture.

    Now if she had a cattle prod in her paw……

    Shadow, No Thanks, that’s a bad visual…the hood is over the wrong head in that picture.

    Nobody realized that the Iraqui’s wee knee is all shriveled up to nothing because the American soldiers told him that he was going to have to do Lynndie.

  26. So now we have defined down the word “torture” to mean “faternity hazing ritual.”

    I am sure all the people around the world being electrocuted, repeatedly raped, gouged, impaled and having their bones crushed will really appreciate the new definition.

  27. What the hell is wrong with Reason and the people who hang out here? Where did you put all the reasonable, intellectual libertarians that used to read this magazine?

    This whole thread is pathetic. Comments about white trash, slandering people from West Virginia, bondage jokes, claims that all female military personnel would do the same in the same circumstances, and claims that the ‘extreme right wing’ loves this stuff. What is this, the Democratic Underground?

    And to make it worse, the original blog entry by Cavanaugh, someone who should know better, has to work in a slam at ‘high power executives’. Because we all know that anyone who makes it in business just loves to go home and get beaten by his dominatrix, right? Because anyone successful in business must have a twisted psyche.

    Never thought I’d read this crap associated with Reason.

  28. All the ridiculous BDSM comments here still don’t hold a candle to the mental gymnastics required to blame this incident on porn and military gender integration like KLo did over at the Corner. As they say, real life is stranger than fiction.

  29. Dan-
    Are you saying that the man in charge of torturing the prisoners was NOT white trash? If he isn’t, than who is?

    Not to speak for Mr. Cavanaugh, but I got the impression he was making a joke. Surely you don’t think that the only way to prove intelligence is to be deadly serious about everything, do you?

  30. Ah,yes. It is, one thinks, time to bring back Ms. Pearson and Greta…–but of course, the Private England is a bit… down market, no?

    Our Greta was a private school sort.

    But, then, perhaps an heretofore unknown daughter…

    Yes. I shall prepare several thousand franks for the author.

  31. Dan, I?ve been coming to Reason’s Hit & Run for a few years now and I’ve found the staff and the readers/posters to be pretty tongue-in-cheek most of the time.

    This thread is a little low brow… but I think it reflects everyone’s over all disgust with Lynndie and the specifics of her young life.

    We can’t help it that she’s a walking, talking, torturing stereotype. She wore combat fatigues in high school for god?s sakes…

    Judging by your tone perhaps, you’d be happier in the enlightened message boards at
    Free Republic.

  32. Doesn’t anyone else think the female photos were released as a propaganda tool to dishearten the enemy? There’s a reason for everything, and I doubt these photos saw daylight to get rid of Rumsfield.

  33. The photos were not released by the Army, but by some low-ranking soldiers who sent them to their friends. Actually, news of the torture reached the higher echelons twice before, but they were covered up; only now, with the photos seen around the world, is the Army admitting to them, mainly because they have no other choice.

    Thank goodness our torturers were dumb enough to keep a photographic record of their depravity. I’m sure I’m not the first person to make the following Simpsons reference: “Videotaping our crime spree was the smartest thing we ever did.”

    That being said, James’ theory might explain why the photos of the female soldiers are getting a lot more media attention than the male ones. Or maybe the media still buys into the idea that females are inherently nicer than males, and thus female torture is inherently more shocking.

  34. I’ve neve heard of a male dominatrix, but I’m sure they exist.

  35. Jennifer,

    “Actually, news of the torture reached the higher echelons twice before, but they were covered up;”

    Do you have a reference handy for that?

  36. Dan: What’s wrong with going to a dominatrix? I don’t see that as a negative stereotype of executives.

  37. Shannon-
    I have been trying to find which of the zillion articles I’ve read in the past few days had the “twice” mention in it, and hope to get back before this link vanishes below the bottom of the page. I know that Salon.com and The Nation have had many stories alleging torture at the prison, going back several months; but then many Reason readers view Salon and the Nation as little more than Al-Qaeda message boards.

    Also, Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International and, I think, the Red Cross, have made allegations of the mistreatment of Iraqi prisoners in the prison. It was all dismissed as propaganda, since it was assumed that Americans are somehow exempt from the ability to be sadists.

    Now let me go look for those links.

  38. Could somebody tell me where to find Pfc. England’s phone number? I’m not the only Santorum with deviant tendencies. Plus, if my man Rick can’t satisfy me, maybe a woman could…

  39. You want her, you call me. Once that honey gets out of the brig I’ll be her pimp. I already have a long list of clients for her!

    Now remember, Rick, make sure prostitution isn’t ever legalized, or the market conditions will no longer support the hefty risk premium that I charge all clients!

  40. Oh my God! Honey, how could you?

    NO!!!!!!!!!

    See, this is what happens when you legalize gay marriage!!!! I told you people! I told you! I told you! But did you listen to me? Of course not. You and your silly libertarian arguments about freedom of contract. What about my inalienable right to a wife who will let me perform barely competent sex acts on her without complaint?

    Now I’ll have to pay to have sex with Pfc. England, just like everybody else. πŸ™

  41. Shannon-
    Top link is the most damning; bottom link is but a prelude of things to come. Neither one is the exact article I had in mind, though.

    http://slate.msn.com/id/2100014/

  42. Are you saying that the man in charge of torturing the prisoners was NOT white trash? If he isn’t, than who is?

    There are many people who consider the term “white trash” to be inappropriate at best and racist at worst. The term does, after all, have its roots in the racist belief that “white people should live and act better than non-whites do”. There’s no equivalent term for “black trash”, “Asian trash”, et al; this is because the term came about, and flourished, in a culture in which only some whites were considered “trashy”, but in which the perceived trashiness of non-whites just went without saying.

    Basically, the term “white trash” is like the expression “act white”. It may or may not be directly racist, but it makes a lot of people uncomfortable.

    It was all dismissed as propaganda, since it was assumed that Americans are somehow exempt from the ability to be sadists.

    With all due respect, it was “dismissed as propaganda” because Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch produce a lot of propaganda. It isn’t that Americans believe themselves incapable of sadism; it’s that we’re reluctant to take the word of someone who gets paid to say that Americans are sadists. πŸ™‚

  43. Dan,

    Go to Amnesty’s website and point us to a piece of propaganda. Or to that of Human Rights Watch.

    It should also be noted that much of the stuff that Bush, Powell, etc. used when they referenced Iraqi human rights abuses under the Ba’athists (and still do to this day) come from the above two sources. Indeed, President Bush mentioned Amnesty International expressly on at least two occasions.

  44. Dan–
    Ah. Well, I’m not racist but I still use the term ‘white trash’ as needed. Right now the meaning is different from the historical one.

    Consider: you know how it’s acceptable these days for comedians to joke about how women are smart and men are stupid, but anyone who made a men are smart/women are stupid joke would be booed off the stage? Likewise, it’s okay for black comedians to make fun of how whites are all uncool geeks, but whites cannot return the favor? Historically, when an oppressed group STOPS being oppressed you get this sort of thing going. So now, after hundreds of years of us Caucasians having the dubious pleasure of throwing racist jokes at everyone, we are now (in America, anyway) the only group that can be racially insulted in a PC manner.

    If the thumbs-up dude in the photo were black I wouldn’t call him a “nigger;” if he were Asian I would call him–uh, whatever the anti-Asian term was–but since he was a white guy I will damn sure call him WHITE TRASH, mainly because it takes less time than calling him “fucked-up utter waste of human genetic material.”.

  45. And to make it worse, the original blog entry by Cavanaugh, someone who should know better, has to work in a slam at ‘high power executives’. Because we all know that anyone who makes it in business just loves to go home and get beaten by his dominatrix, right?

    Holy Toledo, lucky I didn’t use any gags about dishonest butchers, golfing doctors, or spinster schoolmarms!

    And since when am I supposed to know better?

  46. Dan,

    Because you are unlikely to actually visit either, here’s a brief overview of the topics on AI’s frontpage (or rather, their “propaganda”):

    Trafficing in humans in Kosovo

    Forcible evictions in Angola

    A report on human rights in Libya (calling for it become a “reality” there)

    Unlawful killings in Macedonia

    Human rights tragedy in Rumania

    Human rights (at the hands of police) under seige in Zimbabwe

    Human rights problems in Viet Nam concerning the montengard minority

    In Belarus the silencing of trade union activists.

  47. Tim Cavanaugh-
    SPINSTER schoolmarm? I’m an unmarried former schoolteacher. For shame! For shame! And to think that in my 6:42 post I actually stood up for you.

    (On the other hand, I DO live in sin with my boyfriend, so I guess that’s okay.)

  48. By the way, my post should have said “If he were Asian I WOULDN’T call him” the Asian offensive term.

  49. Jennifer,

    Better watch out before one of the fundies here condemns you to hell! πŸ™‚

  50. What Dan said. What the hell IS wrong…..

  51. “The photos were not released by the Army, but by some low-ranking soldiers who sent them to their friends. Actually, news of the torture reached the higher echelons twice before, but they were covered up; only now, with the photos seen around the world, is the Army admitting to them, mainly because they have no other choice.”

    Um, this is bullshit. The army admitted more than a month ago that there was an investigation. How do you think that the report about what took place at Abu Ghraib was completed so quickly?

    Presumably you wrote this before the WSJ posted its article on the uncovering of abuse by the Army and reporting thereof that appears on-line today. Two comments: 1. Army uncovered, Army investigated, Army announced investigation, responsible parties charged or relieved of command, so at what point an issue be passed up the chain of command to the President when appropriate actions have been taken by subordinates. 2. 60 Minutes got the story from the Army’s independent investigation, why should they get to posture as if this was something they found out?

  52. Jessica Lynch was damned lucky to have been an American captured by Iraqis, rather than an Iraqi captured by Americans.

    Yeah, Jessica was lucky all right. She was too fucked up from her broken bones to remember the rape and sodomy that her medical record show occurred.

    And he comrades from the 507th who were shot in the head execution style (and their corpses then displayed on al Jazeera) were lucky too.

    At least none of them had to bear the indignity of naked pictures with a leash around their neck.

  53. I posted this on another thread too …

    jennifer,

    I have read your posts about the prisoner abuse and more or less agree that what they did was wrong, and further, I believe it cost the US a lot (in sundry collateral damage) – which may or may not be a concern for you.

    I see a lot of righteous indignation all around about the behaviour of the accused (well deserved) and cheap shots about their States/ presumed background. What is the appropriate degree of punishment for their crimes?

    If we put these accused to cruel death (your favourite and oft repeated preference) what would we do to those who might actually torture (you know, like pulling nails, really electricute people, etc.) prisoners as opposed to ‘only’ humiliating them?

  54. Jeez! What a bunch of soreheads! We were just trying to make the prisoners feel at home.

  55. andursonne,

    “The army admitted more than a month ago that there was an investigation.”

    In a two sentence announcement. Sorry, but their original announcement was anything but an announcement.

    David,

    “She was too fucked up from her broken bones to remember the rape and sodomy that her medical record show occurred.”

    Any evidence of that? Or is this just more of the same like her supposed ‘Rambo moves?’

  56. Gary-
    My future in hell was assured long before today. The only question is, who among these posters will be my future roommates?

    Zorel-
    Kill ’em all. I may be liberal, but that doesn’t mean I don’t support the death penalty. Personally, I’ve always felt that murderers should meet the exact same fate as their victims. The one verse in the Bible which I can wholeheartedly support: “Revenge is sweet, saith the Lord.”

    (Actually, some of the ‘be nice’ stuff is good too, but only in the proper context.)

    Everybody-
    There was no proof whatsoever that Ms. Lynch was raped or sodomized. None.

  57. “Forgot to add, it sounds like Jessica Lynch was damned lucky to have been an American captured by Iraqis, rather than an Iraqi captured by Americans.”

    You really gotta get off the crack, babe.

  58. And in more important news… πŸ™‚

    NEW YORK – The fate of television?s favorite on-again, off-again couple, Ross and Rachel, came to a happy resolution Thursday when Rachel got off the plane to Paris and returned to Ross in the final episode of “Friends.”

  59. Black Hat-
    Lynch herself said the Iraqis treated her in a kind and humane manner. Or do you assume she is lying to undermine the war effort?

    Zorel-
    I gave a slightly more detailed response in the post below, where you repeated your question.

  60. Is it just me or does she look a little like that French Libertoid Sabine Somethingorother?

  61. That writing is so hysterically overheated, I’m inclined to dismiss anything contained therein. People screaming and waving bloody shirts are usually full of it.

    True, and even more true when Rick Bragg is one of those people. However, the medical evidence Bragg refers to has not been disputed by any of the American doctors. (It has been disputed by the Iraqi doctors who treated her first.) There is medical testimony that she was raped.

    A friend of mine from Syria was a few weeks ago talking about how the Lynch story (the original, last-bullet story) was all bullshit, and said that she was treated like a princess by the Iraqis. I said there was supposedly evidence that she had been raped.

    Friend: “She’s lying.”

    Me: “She’s not claiming it. She doesn’t remember anything. It’s the doctors who examined her.”

    Friend: “They’re lying. The Iraqis just say what the Americans want to hear.”

    Me: “Not the Iraqi doctors; the American doctors who looked at her after they let her go.”

    Friend: “They’re lying.”

    At the same dinner, this friend’s husband spoke for about half an hour about how Bush was a tool of the Jews and was just doing Sharon’s evil bidding in the Middle East, how the looting was all a Bush scheme to undermine Arab society, etc.

    Me: “So are you voting for Kerry?”

    Friend’s Husband: “No! I’m voting for Bush.”

    Me: “But you just talked all night about how evil he is.”

    FH: “The Jews got Bush to invade Iraq, and now that he’s served his purpose they’re trying to get rid of him just like they got rid of his father. That’s why you’re hearing all these negative stories about him now. He’s a strong president now, and they’re afraid of that. They never want an American to be able to stand on his own two feet. They knew that if they let his father stay in office after the first war he could stand up to them; remember how Baker stood up to them at Madrid? Now they want to get rid of the son before he can stand up to them. Kerry’s just another puppet, but Bush is strong.”

    Proof that not believing anything you hear eventually becomes the same as believing everything you hear. But it sure looks grim for Kerry that Bush even has the Bush-is-an-evil-tool-of-the-Jews vote locked up.

  62. I refer back to “I have no opinion one way or the other.” My comment was literary criticism. Look at that mess!

  63. Because you are unlikely to actually visit either, here’s a brief overview of the topics on AI’s frontpage (or rather, their “propaganda”):

    I never said they produce “nothing but propaganda”, so I don’t see what you’re hoping to accomplish with your little list.

    Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have a record of being dramatically overcritical of western democracies; they also have a tendancy to list things as “abuses” which no reasonable person would consider such (e.g. detaining suspected illegal combatants in wartime, or executing convicted murderers). They also tend to, comparatively speaking, ignore much larger problems. For example, the percentage of the population of Iraq that was executed under Hussein was several orders of magnitude greater than the percentage of the population executed during the same period of time in the United States. Yet more resources were devoted to stopping the latter — how is that rational, if your real concern is human rights? These organizations’ tendancy to devote a large part of their resources to criticizing only a tiny part of the problem calls their motives, and therefore their trustworthiness, into question.

    On a final note — look at HRW’s website:

    “U.S.: Open Detention Facilities to Stop Torture”.

    That is propaganda. HRW doesn’t know torture is going on at closed facilities. It has no factual basis for suspecting it, either. It’s just claiming that torture is occuring, and demanding that organizations like itself be given power to “prevent” it. It is also classifying things as “torture” that aren’t, such as making prisoners feel stressed — this is the same sort of bullshit that anti-alcohol organizations pull when they classify a “drinking binge” as “four beers over the course of an entire day”. It’s propaganda, pure and simple.

  64. West Virginia is not all alike.

    You have to understand that Jessica Lynch is a “deep country” West Virginian, meaning she’s from Palestine, a little town in the hills above Parkersburg, a decaying old factory town on the Ohio River. There is very little social inequality in places like that. Everyone is poor, so there is no shame in it. It’s basically the same kind of environment which produced Chuck Yeager.

    Lynndie England, on the other hand, is from Fort Ashby, in what we call the “eastern panhandle.” It’s one of the few parts of the state which consistently votes Republican, because it is Washington/Baltimore outer suburbia. Being a poor white in that area is about sitting up on your hill and watching the rich people down below, and becoming jealous.

    A few months ago, a gang from the town of Romney, about a dozen miles or so from Fort Ashby, came here to Morgantown, WV. They started shooting their way into peoples’ houses. They were probably the people who attacked an old lady on the street, a thing practically unheard of here. However, the locals shot back, and it was probably a good thing for the Romney gang that the police arrested the survivors when they did– otherwise our locals would have exterminated the entire gang.

  65. jennifer,

    a couple of years ago there was an incident in Illionis where teenage girls (high school seniors) did similar things to younger students. this is NOT a voluntary frat initiation thing.

    they were beating, yelling, throwing around crap on them, etc – generally disgusting to watch on tape.

    do you recommend killing them all? was it you said lynch should be happy she was a prisoner of Iraqis and not Americans?

    if so, you are not a Liberal – you are a nut.

  66. Nice post, Andrew.

    I was in W Va. a few years ago. Just passing through. Had breakfast on my way. Clean place, polite folks, a plate full of enough food to feed two more of me. It was only 45 minutes, but long enough to realize that you can find good – or bad – people anywhere.

  67. Where does Jennifer, who not long ago bragged here that she would like to be a _suicide bomber_ too, get the moral authority to judge Lynndie England?

  68. same place you do, mr. wtf.

    like, duh.

  69. There are many people who consider the term “white trash” to be inappropriate at best and racist at worst.

    The other night I met a guy here in Chicago’s ritzy Lincoln Park neighborhood who was mugged as he was walking with his wife down a quite neighborhood street a year ago.

    One of the three young black males pistol whipped his wife across her forehead and then put the gun to her head as she lay bleeding on the sidewalk – she still has a scar, both physically and emotionally.

    Is he wrong to refer to his assailants as Niggers?

    I ask out of honest curiosity because I wonder if there is a time when using a stereotypical label is actually appropriate.

    Obviously, stereotypes as a cultural meme would not exist if there were not some grounding behind them.

    I marvel at the fact that white conservative bristle at the label ?white trash? when applied to Lynndie and her boyfriend. Of all the groups, conservatives should be the last to embrace political correctness when it comes to blatant crimes against human beings.

    Where are the pro-lifers when the victim?s skin is tan?

    Where is the outrage when the abusers are white?

  70. There was no proof whatsoever that Ms. Lynch was raped or sodomized. None.

    As Tim Cavanaugh points out above, Rick Bragg’s book cites medical records that indicate she was anally raped. She has no memory of it, part of a long gap in her memory immediately after she was captured. But Bragg’s report indicates that her scars and medical records indicate it occurred.

    “Jessi lost three hours,” Bragg wrote. “She lost them in the snapping bones, in the crash of the Humvee, in the torment her enemies inflicted on her after she was pulled from it.”

    The scars on Lynch’s body and the medical records indicate she was anally raped, and “fill in the blanks of what Jessi lived through on the morning of March 23, 2003,” Bragg wrote.

    “The records do not tell whether her captors assaulted her almost lifeless, broken body after she was lifted from the wreckage, or if they assaulted her and then broke her bones into splinters until she was almost dead.”

  71. “She was too fucked up from her broken bones to remember the rape and sodomy that her medical record show occurred.”

    Any evidence of that? Or is this just more of the same like her supposed ‘Rambo moves?’

    According to Rick Bragg’s book, a medical exam after she was returned indicated she had been sodomized. Lynch herself has no recollection of this. (I vouch for nothing; I’m just relating what’s been said on the matter.)

  72. That writing is so hysterically overheated, I’m inclined to dismiss anything contained therein. People screaming and waving bloody shirts are usually full of it.

    Not that I have any opinions one way or the other.

  73. Tim,

    Thanks.

  74. According to an old buddy of mine who was a lifetime resident of western Pa, the only purpose of West Virginia was to give people from Pittsburgh something to look down on.

  75. What exactly is the US mission in Iraq?
    Arabs know why. But seriously do u? do u really believe that Bush went there to destroy the Weapons of Mass Destruction….because everybody knows…there arent any…Or is it to “liberate” the Iraqis..by occupying their land and sticking broom sticks up their asses?

  76. I knew this evil twat. Rumor was she cut some old lady’s skin off after the poor woman passed, and wore the damn thing as pajamas. In her little cunt purse, there’s always scissors. Oh, they picked the perfect little monster to guard them Iraqis. Lynndie’s pure sickness and hate.

  77. joseph,
    “What exactly is the US mission in Iraq?
    Arabs know why.”

    Tell us what you “know” , joseph. What is the US mission in Iraq ?

  78. What the hell is up with these gossipy trolls? Think people are leaving these messages on other blogs? I seriously doubt there is a Reason reader from West Virginia who thinks like that.

    Why do suppose someone would do such a thing?

  79. Not sure if anyone’s still reading tis, but I wanted to clarify that I never said I would “like” to be a suicide bomber; I said that I understand how the Palestinians are driven to it, and admitted that in their shoes, with nothing really to live for, I might be one myself. And Zorel-if those trashy high-school girls were members of an American “Army of liberation” torturing those whom they liberated and causing the American reputation damage that won’t be undone within my lifetime, I’d not only recommend the death penalty, I’d offer to be the goddamned executioner.

  80. I dumped this whore 2 years ago.. Her parents may like to call here a sweet thingl wouldn’t hurt a fly but i tell you this, she was a major slut in school (parents probably never new) and the fact she is as guillable as they come. Look she got boned in iraq by several troops and the one fella in that picture, hes boned her about 20 times. I’m gonna be releasing many more pictures of that slutt when the time is right. Stay tuned.

  81. Joe,

    It’s called humor. What kind of person would seiously think that someone would troll on to this site leaving a wild-ass comment so improbable as to be hallucinatory, in the vain hopes of ruining the site? Lighten up.

    It makes one wonder if you’ve had carnal, or at least rutting knowledge of Ms. England, and in a misguided effort trying to protect her sullied name.

  82. I’m going to say this again. I did not have sexual relations with that woman. PFC England.

  83. SM,

    I will put to you a question. If Iraq didnt have oil? would Bush have spent 200 Billion dollars and send a quarter of a million soldiers thousands of miles away ….to “liberate” oppressed people.

    I believe that if the American people knew what is happening other than what they hear from propaganda run american news channels…..They would know how much misery injustice and death have been caused in the middle east…due to their foreign policy…

  84. What those backwoods soldiers did was show thier very typical white American attitudes. Bush said “What those soldiers did was unamerican”. Not really, it is truly American and it has been happening here in our country with this nations people of color for years! I think it is also a wake up call to Iraqi’s. They will finally see the truth in American democracy. If they don’t look like you they don’t treat them with respect.

  86. The soldier Lynddie England is RIFFRAFF. I’m not sure if it is a woman or a man or what, it looks like an androgynous elf. Besides, she is very ugly, she has the ugliness typical of those monsters without feelings, mercy and love.

    I think soldier Lynddie England represents very exact the United States Army and the people of the United States (I didn’t write “America”, because America is a continent, not only one country without name). She is racist, cruel, uncultured, stupid, zionist, vile, amoral, promiscuous… and a whore, she got a pregnancy in Irak, maybe in an orgy… she’s not married (of course), so she is going to be another single mother, like millons do in the United States. Gringos don’t have families, so, they don’t have family values, neither moral values. I think soldier England begin its sexual life at the age of 12 or 11, maybe before, and that she has sex with many many soldiers, like a heat dog! I think she grew in an ugly home and ugly familiy, its parents must be like her!

    Militaries of the United States (and also from Israel) are scum. Soldiers of the United States, steal, destroy, torture, rape, kill, they kill children, they disembowel babies. Israel soldiers teach soldiers from the United States how to torture, kill and smash human beings. United States Army is zionist, they are destroying the world to take care of jewish money.

    The United States and Israel are gangrenous pustules of Earth planet. A better world will come when those pustules disappear.

    Soldier Lynddie England was very cruel with inocent people in Irak just because she is uncultured and racist. She is evil she is garbage, she is not a human being, she is a monster! Now she has an evil monster inside her, another monster gringo is coming! What a bad luck!

    P.D. Sorry, but really I am very afraid of the United States. When are you going to stop? Who is the next? Siria, Cuba, Jordania, Venezuela, Brasil, Mexico…? WHO???!!!

  87. All these torture-humiliations of Arab males were direct from a book by a professor named Guttman from Northwestern. Some pervert Jew who’s fantasized for years about torturing those filthy shvatz goyim hurting all them nice Jews over there in Israel under the color of “scholarship” writes an entire book on how Arabs are essntially subhuman and need to be mastered. This whole mess is semitism gone wild writ large. When your government’s taken over by Jews as ours were vis a vis the neocons, this is what happens. Shameful, neurotic, Neo-Nazi behavior. Remember in WWI, Sec. of State Hans Morganthau was begging FDR, pleading with him often to please make all of Germany suffer. His plan was to sterilize all frauleins at the point of a gun and to destroy all German industry. He wanted famines and plagues. Semitism gone wild. Just what we’re seeing in Iraq.

  88. Poor Lynndie England, she looks so innocent in the pics. It must be because she is a woman πŸ™‚ They even forced her to smile. I understand that there are more pics of her being forced to have sex with multiple US service people and being forced to enjoy it.

    I wonder how she got 4 months pregnant? Who’s the daddy? Jerry Springer here we come πŸ™‚ Perhaps a Playboy layout is in the works.

    ETG

  89. Exactly what kind of interrogation method involves our lovely Lyndie involved in a gangbang with her fellow troops? Now I was in a unit where I was, shall we say, ‘linked’ with several lovely ladies (this was in the mid 80s) at the same time (wound up marrying one of them), but we didn’t do the nasty together in a fivesome or moresome scenario. However, everyone was screwing everyone, just not in the same room. Dang, I should have stayed in!

  90. David Duke is a malignant narcissist.

    He invents and then projects a false, fictitious, self for the world to fear, or to admire. He maintains a tenuous grasp on reality to start with and the trappings of power further exacerbate this. Real life authority and David Duke’s predilection to surround him with obsequious sycophants support David Duke’s grandiose self-delusions and fantasies of omnipotence and omniscience.
    David Duke’s personality is so precariously balanced that he cannot tolerate even a hint of criticism and disagreement. Most narcissists are paranoid and suffer from ideas of reference (the delusion that they are being mocked or discussed when they are not). Thus, narcissists often regard themselves as “victims of persecution”.
    Duke fosters and encourages a personality cult with all the hallmarks of an institutional religion: priesthood, rites, rituals, temples, worship, catechism, and mythology. The leader is this religion’s ascetic saint. He monastically denies himself earthly pleasures (or so he claims) in order to be able to dedicate himself fully to his calling.
    Duke is a monstrously inverted Jesus, sacrificing his life and denying himself so that his people – or humanity at large – should benefit. By surpassing and suppressing his humanity, Duke became a distorted version of Nietzsche’s “superman”.
    But being a-human or super-human also means being a-sexual and a-moral.
    In this restricted sense, narcissistic leaders are post-modernist and moral relativists. They project to the masses an androgynous figure and enhance it by engendering the adoration of nudity and all things “natural” – or by strongly repressing these feelings. But what they refer to, as “nature” is not natural at all.
    Duke invariably proffers an aesthetic of decadence and evil carefully orchestrated and artificial – though it is not perceived this way by him or by his followers. Narcissistic leadership is about reproduced copies, not about originals. It is about the manipulation of symbols – not about veritable atavism or true conservatism.
    In short: narcissistic leadership is about theatre, not about life. To enjoy the spectacle (and be subsumed by it), the leader demands the suspension of judgment, depersonalization, and de-realization. Catharsis is tantamount, in this narcissistic dramaturgy, to self-annulment.
    Narcissism is nihilistic not only operationally, or ideologically. Its very language and narratives are nihilistic. Narcissism is conspicuous nihilism – and the cult’s leader serves as a role model, annihilating the Man, only to re-appear as a pre-ordained and irresistible force of nature.
    Narcissistic leadership often poses as a rebellion against the “old ways” – against the hegemonic culture, the upper classes, the established religions, the superpowers, the corrupt order. Narcissistic movements are puerile, a reaction to narcissistic injuries inflicted upon David Duke like (and rather psychopathic) toddler nation-state, or group, or upon the leader.
    Minorities or “others” – often arbitrarily selected – constitute a perfect, easily identifiable, embodiment of all that is “wrong”. They are accused of being old, they are eerily disembodied, they are cosmopolitan, they are part of the establishment, they are “decadent”, they are hated on religious and socio-economic grounds, or because of their race, sexual orientation, origin … They are different, they are narcissistic (feel and act as morally superior), they are everywhere, they are defenseless, they are credulous, they are adaptable (and thus can be co-opted to collaborate in their own destruction). They are the perfect hate figure. Narcissists thrive on hatred and pathological envy.
    This is precisely the source of the fascination with Hitler, diagnosed by Erich Fromm – together with Stalin – as a malignant narcissist. He was an inverted human. His unconscious was his conscious. He acted out our most repressed drives, fantasies, and wishes. He provides us with a glimpse of the horrors that lie beneath the veneer, the barbarians at our personal gates, and what it was like before we invented civilization. Hitler forced us all through a time warp and many did not emerge. He was not the devil. He was one of us. He was what Arendt aptly called the banality of evil. Just an ordinary, mentally disturbed, failure, a member of a mentally disturbed and failing nation, who lived through disturbed and failing times. He was the perfect mirror, a channel, a voice, and the very depth of our souls.
    Duke prefers the sparkle and glamour of well-orchestrated illusions to the tedium and method of real accomplishments. His reign is all smoke and mirrors, devoid of substances, consisting of mere appearances and mass delusions. In the aftermath of his regime – Duke having died, been deposed, or voted out of office – it all unravels. The tireless and constant prestidigitation ceases and the entire edifice crumbles. What looked like an economic miracle turns out to have been a fraud-laced bubble. Loosely held empires disintegrate. Laboriously assembled business conglomerates go to pieces. “Earth shattering” and “revolutionary” scientific discoveries and theories are discredited. Social experiments end in mayhem.
    It is important to understand that the use of violence must be ego-syntonic. It must accord with the self-image of David Duke. It must abet and sustain his grandiose fantasies and feed his sense of entitlement. It must conform David Duke like narrative. Thus, David Duke who regards himself as the benefactor of the poor, a member of the common folk, the representative of the disenfranchised, the champion of the dispossessed against the corrupt elite – is highly unlikely to use violence at first. The pacific mask crumbles when David Duke has become convinced that the very people he purported to speak for, his constituency, his grassroots fans, and the prime sources of his narcissistic supply – have turned against him. At first, in a desperate effort to maintain the fiction underlying his chaotic personality, David Duke strives to explain away the sudden reversal of sentiment. “The people are being duped by (the media, big industry, the military, the elite, etc.)”, “they don’t really know what they are doing”, “following a rude awakening, they will revert to form”, etc. When these flimsy attempts to patch a tattered personal mythology fail, David Duke becomes injured. Narcissistic injury inevitably leads to narcissistic rage and to a terrifying display of unbridled aggression. The pent-up frustration and hurt translate into devaluation. That which was previously idealized – is now discarded with contempt and hatred. This primitive defense mechanism is called “splitting”. To David Duke, things and people are either entirely bad (evil) or entirely good. He projects onto others his own shortcomings and negative emotions, thus becoming a totally good object. Duke is likely to justify the butchering of his own people by claiming that they intended to kill him, undo the revolution, devastate the economy, or the country, etc. The “small people”, the “rank and file”, and the “loyal soldiers” of David Duke – his flock, his nation, and his employees – they pay the price. The disillusionment and disenchantment are agonizing. The process of reconstruction, of rising from the ashes, of overcoming the trauma of having been deceived, exploited and manipulated – is drawn-out. It is difficult to trust again, to have faith, to love, to be led, to collaborate. Feelings of shame and guilt engulf the erstwhile followers of David Duke. This is his sole legacy: a massive post-traumatic stress disorder.

  91. Teach Don’t Preach!

    Recently, it has been brought to my attention that two Ivy League professors have been abusing their position by using the classroom as a political platform to campaign against the United States of America.

    Nicholas De Genova, a Columbia University assistant professor of anthropology and Latino studies, shocked students and faculty at a campus anti-war teach-in on March 26 when he expressed his wish that Iraq would defeat the United States and that there would be “a million Mogadishu’s.” This last comment was meant to refer to a 1993 incident in Somalia when 18 U.S. soldiers were killed during a military operation.
    De Genova further insulted America’s men and women in uniform by declaring that “the only true heroes are those who find ways that help defeat the U.S. military,” and accused patriotic citizens of being white supremacists.

    Associate Professor Mazin Qumsiyeh of Yale University appears to have a major role in coordinating boycott petitions. Professor Qumsiyeh is also running a boycott of Israeli goods and services as well as a boycott of businesses that do business with Israel. He heads the Palestine Right To Return Coalition’s Media Committee. He writes, “We blame Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and Rice who are so wedded to special interests and money (oil and military industries) that they maybe willing to sacrifice American, Iraqi, and Palestinian lives in quest for more power. If you have not noticed the killing of Palestinians continued unabated with 30 killed in the past week and dozens of homes demolished (all using our tax money). Do we blame the nine-mega corporations owning most of our media and calling the shots on what we see or hear in America? Does this media keep the American public in the dark about what is really going on in Iraq and Palestine as we continue to alienate the whole world. Does this group (with special interest agenda) manage to regularly implant thought patterns that have little to do with reality but much to do with gaining support for policies of war mongering, domination, and civil rights violations.”

    Such conduct is highly inappropriate for the classroom regardless of our liberty of free speech. A professor’s role in society is to teach students in a nonbiased manner enabling students to formulate their own opinions. I am outraged by this new academic epidemic. Law does not forbid the spread of anti-American propaganda, nor should it impede upon our right to free speech. However, there is a time and a place to express ones personal and political views, this location should not include the classroom. These professors should teach the subjects they are employed to teach, as opposed to giving daily lesson regarding “evil America.”

    Thank you,
    David Wentworth

    P.S. Perhaps the US Military will gererate vast profits from sales of the Lynndie England Gangbang DVD. It seems as though it would be fitting for Lynndie England to be exploited for the countries monetary gain in hopes of repaying her debt to society. No incarceration, corporal mortification, or capital punishment nessissary.

    Look for Great Geragos!

  92. David Duke Diagnosed with Anti-Social Personality Disorder

    David Duke Diagnosed with Anti-Social Personality Disorder

    In a world full of fears, perhaps the worst one a human being
    should have is that to be afraid of his fellow man. The human that
    should be most feared is the one that has Anti-Social Personality
    Disorder or in laymen ‘s terms the psychopath. The psychopath is
    probably the most deviant mind that exists and treatment is not very
    successful because there is not a cure or drug to control it. The
    solution in my mind to control the problem of sociopaths is to let
    them live in colonies with each other. Through my research I will
    develop an understanding of this personality disorder and convince you
    the reader that my solution might be a viable solution.

    David Duke has a combination of other mental illnesses that
    are incurred in childhood as a result of heredity, trauma and the
    lack of emotional development. The lack of moral or emotional
    development which gives David Duke a lack of understanding for other
    people ‘s feelings which enables them to be deceitful without feeling
    bad about whatever they do. The under developed emotional system as
    explained in the video “The World of Personality Disorders volume 5 ”
    says David Duke is “emotionally retarded “. Duke’s
    behavior problems that started as a child have links to heredity, a
    family with a pre-disposition to perform crimes, alcoholic parents
    that do crimes, irresponsible behavior that persists and parents that
    do not discipline. The child that will eventually be a sociopath
    exhibits certain feeling inside that they are inadequate shamed and
    because of that they are teased and made fun of. The child
    characteristics of a future sociopath consist of being incapable of
    following the rules. The youngster will skip school, bully, steal,
    torment animals, run away from home and the child is likely to develop
    Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or ADHD. At an earlier age
    than their peer group the child will smoke drink, do drugs, and become
    sexually active. The diagnoses of Anti-Social Personality Disorder are
    not used for people under the age of 18.

    The Psychopath is defined in the dictionary as a person
    suffering from, especially a severe mental disorder with aggressive
    antisocial behavior which is a nice way of saying a really bad and
    mean person. There are many characteristics of David Duke and each
    sociopath has their own special traits.

    David Duke gets great gratification in the act of hurting
    someone for absolutely no reason. The behavior of David Duke is so
    close to normal it is extremely hard to diagnose. David Duke is a
    person that acts against society and their sole purpose it seems is to
    act against the laws of the given land their end. David Duke will
    in most cases become violent and abuse drugs and alcohol to facilitate
    the violent behavior. The violence in many cases is the result of
    sub-conscious decisions that might lead to murdering or assaulting
    someone for no reason. When David Duke is attacking someone they will
    inflict more pain if the victim fights back.

    The lack of moral development lets the person feel no guilt or
    pain for what they did and quite possibly feel great about their
    actions. David Duke has little self-regard for him or herself and pays
    little attention to their own personal safety when picking fights.
    Quite often they will be outsized and get hurt. Some sociopaths are
    non-violent and stay out of prison by doing small crimes like
    swindling and insurance fraud. It is possible that a sociopath will
    come from a normal home but there are more that do not. David Duke
    has the opposite morals of society and by doing things like beating up
    people that are stronger than them they feel like they did something
    positive. A psychopath is very reactive and will blow their cool
    because of little things and no doubt assault the person they are
    reacting to. There is a possibility that saratonin a chemical that is
    linked to behavior has something to do with the disorder but is not
    the major cause. The type 2 male sociopath drinks heavily no matter
    what, has a history of frequent fights and arrests, they are impulsive
    risk takers, curious, excitable, quick tempered, optimistic and
    independent.

    Characteristic List

    * be glib or superficial
    * have a grandiose self image
    * be deceitful or manipulative
    * lack of remorse
    * lack of empathy
    * be impulsive
    * be irresponsible
    * be easily angered or frustrated
    * have serious problems as a child or teenager
    * shows callous unconcern from other ‘s feelings
    * disregard social norms or the rights of other people
    * be unable to maintain enduring relationships
    * be incapable of experiencing guilt
    * blame others or rationalize antisocial behavior
    * be constantly irritable

    The antisocial tends to have short lasting relationships if
    they are capable of having a relationship. The psychopath is incapable
    of having long lasting, close, warm and responsible relationships with
    people. The adult will habitually lie and cannot hold a job for long.
    David Duke can seem charming in superficial social interactions but
    repeatedly hurt, anger, exploit, cheat, rob, harass or injure them.
    The actions a psychopath no matter what laws they break, whoever they
    hurt, whatever trouble they have to deal with they do not feel bad.
    When a sociopath is punished they have no feeling of regret because no
    matter how cruel or selfish the behavior is they feel it is justified.
    People like us give David Duke little sympathy because they hurt
    people so bad but their illness is recognized as somewhat of an
    explanation of why they do it. The idea of the disorder is no excuse
    for their behavior that results from it.

    David Duke is very intelligent and knows how to manipulate
    people into thinking they are normal and that is when they work their
    magic. Beneath the mask of sanity David Duke is full of tension,
    hostility, irritability, rage, emptiness and sadness at the core of
    Duke’s personality. When they hurt a person David Duke might
    think he had it coming or I ‘m watching out for number 1. Those
    sociopaths with children neglect them and do not keep them safe. As a
    spouse David Duke can be glib, superficial, manipulative,
    dishonest, abusive and unfaithful. David Duke tends to borrow,
    squander and not repay the money they owe. Many sociopaths never
    settle down for any period of time, they will travel without aim
    looking for jobs or whatever they need and get it by doing anything. A
    sociopath may look tough and resilient but is very fragile and can
    erupt very easily.

    The diagnosis of a sociopath or psychopath is very difficult
    and has to meet several criteria in order to get that diagnoses.
    Diagnoses as explained in Caring for the Mind is based on ” a
    pervasive pattern of disregard for and violation of the rights of
    others, occurring since the age of fifteen, as indicated by at least
    three of the following,

    1. Failure to conform to the social norms for lawful behavior, as
    indicated by repeatedly performing illegal acts that are grounds for
    arrest;

    2. Deceitfulness, as indicated by repeatedly lying, use of aliases, or
    conning others for personal profit or pleasure;

    3. Impulsivity failure to plan ahead;

    4. Irritability and aggressive, as indicated by repeated physical
    fights or assaults;

    5. Reckless disregard for safety of self or others;

    6. Consistent irresponsibility as indicated by failure to keep a job
    or honor financial obligations;

    7. Lack of remorse, as indicated by indifference or rationalizations
    for having hurt, mistreated or stolen from others;

    * must be older than 18 to be diagnosed with it
    * must be evidence of a conduct disorder before the age of 15
    * antisocial behavior doesn’t ‘t occur only during the course of
    schizophrenia or manic episodes of bipolar illness

    Anti-Social Personality Disorder is found in as much as 75% of
    the prison population. Alcohol is a contributing cause or consequence
    of being antisocial. People that are both antisocial and alcoholic are
    prone to violent behavior. Not every antisocial becomes a criminal. An
    antisocial person ‘s disorder peaks between the ages of 24 and 44 and
    drops off sharply after that.

    After the age of 30 David Duke fights less and performs
    less crime but the illness can persist into the ages of between 60 and
    70 but after 30 are less likely to be in trouble with the law. In a
    sociopaths in there thirties will continue to have problems such as
    unstable relationships, substance abuse, impulsiveness, poor temper
    control and failure to honor financial obligations. In our population
    3% men have Anti-Social Personality Disorder and 1% women in the
    overall population have it. The ratio of men to women is 4 to 1.
    Identical twins are several times more likely to have a personality
    disorder compared to fraternal twins. A genetic link strongest in
    anti-social disorder has a pattern of irresponsible behavior 5 times
    more common amongst close relatives of anti-social men than in the
    general population. Some people with a genetic link to alcoholism have
    a genetic link to anti-social personality disorder too. Male relatives
    of people with Summarization Disorder have a higher incidence of
    anti-social personality disorder (summarization – begins in the teens
    to twenties and consists of chronic physical problems and complaints).
    Sociopaths with a history of substance abuse and criminal behavior fit
    Manchausen Syndrome (Manchausen is the extreme type of factitious
    disorder which symptoms are lying, falsification and pathological
    lying). Sociopaths also have a tendency to have a non-psychiatric
    condition that is called malingering which is the production of
    grossly exaggerated symptoms for a specific illness or problem for the
    purpose of winning legal action or things like committing insurance
    fraud or basically anything they have to lie to get. David Duke has
    a bundle of problems that could come from any part of life and they
    are very hard to handle.

    If a person is diagnosed with Anti-Social Personality Disorder
    is very hard to treat and there is no cure for their behavior. Because
    the disorder remits in the thirties, it tends to be less obvious.
    Those that are forced into psychotherapy cannot tolerate the intimacy
    of the required therapy. The therapist has to focus on enhancing
    strength, channel the sensation of seeking actions on people into more
    positive socially responsible behaviors and to teach practical ways in
    dealing with every day frustration. Medications are not recommended in
    the treatment of sociopath but drugs can diminish the violent
    episodes. People with Anti-Social Personality Disorder also have
    Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and stimulants are used to
    treat that such as Ritalin. There are no long-term results to study of
    this approach of using stimulants but they should not be prescribed
    unless the person is specifically diagnosed with ADHD and has not
    responded to other medication. The use of drugs cannot be abused and
    should be closely monitored. Those that are convicted of crimes are
    usually incarcerated. Some sociopaths may be able to instead of a jail
    term choose a residential facility that has counseling but there is a
    high drop out rate in those facilities. Another alternative to jail
    for the adolescents with delinquent behavior and are in trouble with
    the law are wilderness programs that are designed to be like Outward
    Bound. The camps much like that in the T.V. shows Neon Rider provide
    difficult and dangerous challenges that would keep their minds busy.
    The success of the wilderness camps is not quite clear. There is a
    disorder called Borderline that is often misdiagnosed as Anti-Social
    Personality Disorder that is quite similar to it. Borderline Disorder
    is a little bit more aggressive than Antisocial.

    Characteristics of Borderline Disorder

    Violating the rights of others and age appropriate societal
    norms or rules with at least three of the following in the past 6
    months and one in the last 12 Aggression to People and Animals;

    The diagnoses of David Duke is extremely difficult because
    they have so many mental problems to contend with the complete
    diagnoses might not occur. The possibility of being diagnosed with
    something similar to being David Duke is quite great and this point
    should be stressed with relationship between Borderline and
    Anti-Social Disorder.

    The inability to diagnose and treat properly leads me to
    believe that there is not a clear solution as to how the general
    population should react and treat these severely troubled people. This
    is a disorder that blinds the emotions and actions David Duke that
    in no way is their fault for having it. Although the disorder is not
    the given sociopath ‘s fault there is no real place for David Duke in
    our society. Because sociopaths hurt us, I believe that once diagnosed
    with the disorder that all sociopaths should be sent to some kind of
    controlled colony that would run like a normal city or town except all
    it ‘s residents would be sociopaths. I come to this solution as almost
    a way to remove them from society and treat the people in a way to. By
    having sociopaths colonized together with all the parts of a normal
    society it would be good for them because the only people that could
    hurt or manipulate would be their fellow sociopath. David Duke
    would be constantly bored with average person and sometimes causing
    them to hurt the average person when if they were caused to interact
    with fellow sociopaths it would keep them interested because it is not
    as easy to manipulate or con. The possibility of violence in my colony
    is great but David Dukes does not mind because it is in their
    personality and it would serve us better if they killed or hurt each
    other rather than us. In closing David Duke is so hard to deal with
    we should make strides to control their behavior in public.

  93. Lynndie English is NOT a Dominatrix.

    I AM a Dominatrix. She is not worthy of the title of Domintrix as what she is doing is ABUSE. This is NOT BDSM, because if you knew what BDSM is truly about, its about a power exchange, it is consensual, it is agreed upon behavior between two adults BEFORE it starts.

    Her behavior is far worse than anything I would do, and I do brandings, cuttings, and floggings. Why is it different, why is it worse? It is because what she does is NON CONSENSUAL VIOLENCE! She did NOT have permssion from that prisioner to play in that fashion, and that, dear readers is NOT BDSM or Domination.

    God.. Vanilla people… “Normal people” they have no idea of what they do, and name ABUSE as “Domination.” Sick.
