    In my completely unrealistic, wide eyed, ultra liberal opinion : women are people too.

    Shocking, I know. I just insulted Islamists and Totalitarian fanboys everywhere.

    I'm still amused that the Libyan government's assumes that the outside world treat them with legitimacy :hurr

    But its been obvious that the people who support the government do so out of fear and nothing else, the rebels advancing into tripoli would be the only thing to collapse Gadaffi's reign

    Sadly, I am not surprised. I wasn't even surprised by their claims that she wasn't sane and had made it up. Anything to keep it secret, I suppose. They will do or say anything to protect their own asses.

    I just hope that (if this really happened) the men will be punished severally, but I have a hard time believing that will happen.

    The woman will probably be shackled and thrown in jail or killed. :(

    Yea and we will totally buy that promise :notrust

    @Terra: Check out the video in the link. You can see how desperate she is in trying to get her story told. I'm sure she's telling the truth.

    I know she's telling the truth, I believe her. I was watching the video just now (wouldn't load before, site is really slow) so I didn't have time to edit after I got to watch the video. The article seems...to unreal to believe, if that makes sense? :hmm I didn't expect this kind of news to get out publicly, so I had (wrongly at first) assumed it was fake. Video definitely isn't fake.

    That poor, poor woman. :( I hope those men suffer for what they have done. And if justice doesn't find them I hope someone who deals out justice, does.

    I want to express my hatred for the way women are treated over there, but words cannot described my hatred. :mad

    Gang rape in Libya, foreign reporters being sexually assaulted in Egypt, mass rapes in Congo.

    That continent has issues with women.

    Pretty much any place below Europe on that side of the world and over to Japan has a serious problem with women.

    Makes you realise how isolated and sheltered the journalists are too, locked up in a hotel and surrounded by pro-Gadaffi forces acting as their severs. Props to the ch 4 guy who really tried to intervene and got put in a separate van for his trouble.

    Yeah, when you compare somewhere like the US to Japan where rapes are comparatively minimal, we don't really have much a leg to stand on when it comes to treating women with respect, atleast in terms of sexual gratification.

    Rape is severely underreported in Japan. Not to mention they have a massive problem with sexual assault generally.

    One can say that(and it is true generally), but its not exactly something one can pinpoint while we don't have official figures

    There were reports on Sankei of women being raped by people posing as police during the earthquake tsunami, knocking on doors and whatnot, but its not widely circulated

    There are women who do get raped and a lot of them don't speak out, even in developed worlds.
    That woman's a hero :(

    Jesus christ... I want to hope that she's ok but it's more than likely that she'll be killed or raped again.

    Maybe she'll escape again, I hope for at least that.

    Indeed, it is depressing. The perpetrators would most likely still be scot-free after this. A thought that can calm me when I think about it, even if these men weren't brought to justice, such assholes will die one day. -_-

    Who said otherwise?

    If she was just a women raped, this would barely be news concidering how unfortuantly common it is.

    Please let me know a situation in North America that parallels the other important aspects of this one.

    What the fuck is wrong with these countries and women?! :notrust

    What a brave soul. At least she got to tell her story even at the cost of her own safety and perhaps life.. :(

    I would feel safer for her if instead of the custody of the police she stayed with the foreign journalist or if she managed to get away. I wish her the best but I am not very hopeful for her future welfare.

    Very likely. I hope we get a follow up that she contacted her family, but honestly I don't think she'll ever be seen again.

    And I love whenever we're refuted as not respecting the cultures and mindsets of people there when we point this out and bitch.
