An Iranian soldier looks out over the desert, darkened under clouds of burning oil set alight by Iraqi forces in 1990.
Werner Herzog made a great movie about these fires, Lessons of Darkness.
The Invisible War – An investigative documentary about the epidemic of rape of soldiers within the US military.
After watching this documentary, one can only come to one conclusion: Our military does not take rape seriously.
I think this is one of the many scenarios where a feminist issue is a human issue. Many studies have shown that rape isn’t about sexuality, its about power. If the military doesn’t take rape against women seriously, then it probably won’t take rape against men seriously either.
