Thoughts on the military and military activities of a diverse nature. Free-ranging and eclectic.

This is coolbert:

"Janjaweed - - the weed that needs pulling!!"

Previously, I have blogged on the topic of "rape as a weapon of war".

Here, however, is a new one on me.

Castration as a weapon of war. As currently being practiced by the janjaweed militia upon unfortunates in Darfur.

"In Darfur, My Camera Was Not Nearly Enough"

"men castrated and left to bleed to death"

Mass rape of woman in Darfur, along with branding, has been reported from that "conflict" for some time now. Woman are mass raped, and then branded. This the media has carried and reported upon.

But not castration. Men, castrated, left to die a slow, agonizing, humiliating and prolonged death from uncontrolled bleeding. I have yet to see this very "topic" carried by the mainstream media. Maybe it is too "sensitive" a subject.

"Castration has also been used in modern conflicts, as the Janjaweed militiamen currently (as of 2005) attacking citizens of the Darfur region in Sudan often castrate villagers and leave them to bleed to death as part of a campaign of terror."

Historically, castration of vanquished enemies found dead on the battlefield has been practiced. Thought to be an act of "barbarians" NO LONGER DONE? Darfur says otherwise.

"After battles, winners castrated their captives or bodies of the defeated to symbolise their victory and 'seize' their power."

Castration here represents a weapon of terror. NO DOUBT about it! Both physically and psychologically. The janjaweed are saying to the folks of Darfur, "we not only kill you, and do so in a grotesque manner, but also prevent your very essence from ever being created again!"

The Genocide Convention specially defines the action of "preventing births" within a culture or society as an egregious violation.

"imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group"


American celebrities such as George Clooney endlessly talk about "ending" - - "somehow", the atrocities in Darfur. OK George, here is how to do it! Have AC-130 gunships from the USAF patrol at 8,000 feet. Target the janjaweed "militias" for destruction. Locate the miscreants using American Special Forces [SF] cavalry organized and led by Major "Mad Mike" Williams. ONLY that will do the trick!! All the rest is mere pap!
