And from the same post:
“This Iraq War veteran serving five life terms for raping and killing a 14-year-old Iraqi girl and killing her parents and sister says he didn’t think of Iraqi civilians as humans after being exposed to extreme warzone violence.”
The mentality of a soldier? Mentality of occupying soldiers? We don’t have 100s of such example but 1000s of 100s of them! In fact this is the mentality of the ‘winners’, a bestial mentality, that forces him to plunder and rape the loser’s wealth and women, continuing since the society got divided into class or classes.
Army, without any distinction, the world over, have same mentality, except when the mankind saw a different Army, that of Soviets, who fought to save their father land, their state, the first of its kind on the mother Earth, the first ever, the proletarian state! They did not attack other nation to occupy their land, plunder their wealth or capture their market and natural resources. They did not indulge in war crime!
The rigorous training, separation from the family, strict discipline, strenuous physical exercises, training on lethal arms, slogan that “Army does not shoot to disperse the crowd but to kill” and the war, especially on the foreign land for the purpose of “business”, make these soldiers brute, inhuman! They become tool of oppression, tool of murder. When ‘free’ to act, all bestiality comes to the fore and that is what we see here and what this rapist accept, though without remorse!
There are also examples, when the state orders its Army to destroy other nations and rape & murder becomes ‘legal’!
Now, the worse is seen in what the terrorist organisations, like ISIS, etc are doing, laden with an ideology, though that is disgustingly most reactionary! Not to delve much on this aspect, except that I will like to say that they are creation of imperialist powers, headed by US!
People’s Army is a concept, that developed in Socialist countries, which will be a temporary solution, but the final solution is to eradicate this monster! A world without war, without army! Unimaginable? But that is possible in socialism, a society without class, without wage slavery, where a woman will be treated as a comrade and not as a commodity to be sold or purchased and to be used to humiliate and oppress the enemy!
“Women hold half the sky” and must be equally part of the productive forces and for the material and spiritual development of the society!
