X-Post: It's not who they are, but who WE are, that makes the difference (or should)

American Power: Muammar Gaddafi Allegedly Sodomized After Capture

"It's pretty awful, but seriously? Folks are going to get worked up about this? The dude promised to go "house to house" to cleanse the "greasy rats" from Libya." - Donald Kent Douglas
We don't react to things like rape and torture based on who the victim is, but based on who we are. It is the act of forced sodomy (essentially rape) that we humans condemn, no matter who the rapist(s) or the victim(s) are or what else they've done in their lives.

(It's kinda sad that anyone should ever have to point that out... ...especially to an American, given how exceptional our morals and values generally are compared to people the rest of the world over.)

This is "things I learned in kindergarten" material... Two wrongs don't make a right.
