Is Viagra Causing More Rapes?

June 7, 2011 Is Viagra Causing More Rapes?

Viagra was first introduced on the market in 1998, for the sole purpose of assisting older men with erectile dysfunction commonly a problem of aging. But is it causing more rape in the world today and is this drug now being used as a tool in war to incite more rapes and violence against women?

Today, Viagra sales have topped the drug market as a billion dollar drug and is used as a prescription drug but also sold over the Internet from online pharmacies in great quantities without prescriptions.

 

Viagra as a Weapon of War

Viagra in Afghanistan

Since 2008, in the Afghanistan war, the CIA has been secretly giving Afghan warlords and the Taliban Viagra to appease them while gain their trust.  (See our December 27, 2008 Article)

The majority of Afghan tribal leaders usually have four wives and the CIA purchased these drugs from pharmaceuticals in bulk supply to freely distribute them as gifts to Afghan warlords.

It would be of interest to the American taxpayer that their tax dollars are being used to give Afghan warlords and the Taliban enemy, the ability have have long lasting erections.

The drug is being used as a tool for the US military however, they will increase the rapes against women in a war torn country which is an assault on humanity in general and this practice should be stopped. Is Viagra causing more rapes is not a question anymore since the stories told in Libya now prove it is being used as a mass rape weapon against the Libyan people.

 

Viagra has not been tested for causing aggressive behavior in men, even though the drug changes brain chemistry, causing physiological changes and abnormal behavior. 1.

Viagra in Libya

The daily reports of women being raped by Qaddafi loyalist forces is an attack on civilian women as a weapon of war.  Many dead Qaddafi soldiers have been inspected at the morgues and have been carrying Viagra and condoms on their person.  The military is obviously using the drug to make soldiers more sexually aggressive in the revolution by unarmed women and men who comprise the population of Libya.  Many incidents besides the more publicized incident of March 26, 2011 when Iman al-Obeidi said she was raped by Libya’s military at a check point, when she tried to enter Tripoli. She was seen to be badly bruised and was then abducted by the military forces.

 

Since then she escaped to Qatar she was later refused entry and deported back to Libya a move that puzzles the United Nations.  She has now moved to Romania for her own safety and does not wish being involved further into this rebellion in her own country.

Obeidi had to leave her family, parents and her homeland to escape further assaults and attacks.  The Qaddafi forces made statements that she was psychologically insane and held her captive for many days even bribing her to keep quiet and threatened her family if she did not remain silent about the attack.  She refused.

Even though MSNBC’s report of April 29, 2011 reported that there is no evidence that Libyan military focus are being given Viagra to rape women but the evidence found on the dead soldiers bodies in the morgue proves otherwise.

Is Viagra Causing More Rapes?More Women are Raped in War, dead Gadaffi Soldiers found with Viagra in their pockets.

 

Al Jazeera broke the story in March, 2011 after speaking with Libyan doctors who say pro-Qaddafi soldiers are equipped with Viagra and condoms. Doctors say they found those supplies of viagra in the pockets of dead soldiers brought to the hospital.??DOCTOR: “If I were to bring _____ to the hospital, I will check in the pocket. I have seen Viagra and I have seen condoms also.”?

REPORTER: “And you ascertain from that, that’s why… because they were going to rape?”?

DOCTOR: “Ya, sure. Sure.”   Video courtesy of: Al Jazeera English.

In this video report from Al Jazeera, Dr. Suleiman Rafadi a General Surgeon reports his finding on the front lines found Viagra pills and condoms on the bodies of dead Gaddafi soldiers. in the morgue the photos show the bodies of these soldiers killed in the fight for Ajdabiya where viagra pills and the condoms were found.  Why would soldiers be carrying such a drug and condoms if it were not for the sole purpose of raping and pillaging innocent women and possibly children -the people of Libya?

Dr. Rafadi also treated raped women victims with children that were raped one of whom was searching for safety for her child.  Another was raped in her own house as an act of terrorism to quell the rebellion.

Also Dr. Abdul Rahim Aquila Najib also treats the wounded on the front lines of the rebellion, said he heard Qaddafi soldiers say: “those women who celebrate loudly, we will come and we will rape them”.  This video was taped on March 28, 2011, and no United Nations investigation was initiated against the Libya leader.

If the doctors treating the wounded from Qaddafi forces indicate they have evidence, why is the US media neglecting this story or worse burying it in their reports?

Viagra is a drug sold by the Pfizer Corporation and it has obviously sold this drug to Libya in mass quantities as it did in 2008 to the CIA which receives Viagra in bulk orders.  The CIA has not disclosed how much viagra it uses in the Middle East as an inducement for information.  We know from Change.org that Gaddafi’s forces have large quantities of Viagra and drugs like Sidenafil.

In an article by Changedotorg, recorded confessions of Qaddafi soldiers admitting they received viagra and ordered to rape women and use violence against the women of Libya.

This act is a crime against humanity and according to laws this drug is being used as an act of war, aggression, terrorism and violence. To join a petition against this form of violence see: Change.org

According to certain reports, Pfizer stopped shipping Viagra products to Libya on February, however it still can be obtained on the black market from the international community.  If Pfizer does not stop massive shipments of this drug it can be considered a co-conspirator in the International Criminal Courts involving the mass rape of women in the Middle East.

Gaddafi still has large amounts of the drug in his possession and he can obtain more by his friendly Arab nations who support him.

If there is a reason why Gaddafi and other soldiers carry viagra and condoms into a war zone, there have been none published. Only the denial by MSNBC that claim there is no evidence of viagra used to incite rape in Libya, however they have no proof of their claims.

Rape of Hotel Maids-DSK Rape Charges

As reported in the news in the last several months, hotel maids who are often new immigrants and come from low income families are being targeted by hotel guests even in the high end luxury hotels. The report of the rape and or sexual assault of a chambermaid at the New York Hotel Sofitel was an astounding wake up call for hotel owners worldwide.

Hotel chambermaids are ambushed by guests in the hotel rooms while they attempt to do their job cleaning for the hotel.  As a staff member, hotel chamber maids are to be protected against rape, attempted rape and attacks by hotel guests, but sadly this is not the case.

The hotel management is responsible for the safety and well being of all of their staff members especially those exposed to danger while performing their duties.  The call for panic buttons, more security cameras in hallways and elevators and more security measures on pass cards are required for maids to be protected from sexual assaults.

It has not been revealed that Dominique Strauss Kahn was taking Viagra and for how long when he was charged with raping a chambermaid at the Hotel Sofitel in New York on May 14, 2011. 

The investigators however, should be taking a blood test and obtain medical records from DSK in order to ascertain whether this 60 year old man, know as The Seducer was taking this sexual enhancement drugs.  The question remains, was Dominique Strauss Kahn taking viagra and could it have been involved in his alleged attack at the Sofitel Hotel in New York.
