Rape and war

Heart from Women's Space has written an amazing and heartbreaking series of posts about the rape and murder of an Iraqi woman by American soldeirs. She's written everything I'd like to say if I was brave enough to spend time reading about what happened. The most important point, and the point she makes several times, that this was not the act of one sick individual, but part of a systemic culture of rape and abuse.

Please read these posts.
