Everything from the base up is wrong.
However, it is enlightening of what is going on in the heads of people who are apologists for bad behaviour.
There is a difference between having bad things happen to you for no reason, having bad things happen to you for a reason, or putting yourself in a
situation where bad things are likely to happen. I do NOT condone one person harming another, but I will have less sympathy for a person that places
themselves in a situation that significantly increases their chance to be harmed.
For example, say I go with a friend to watch the soccer, and we sit in an area surrounded by enemy fans. Now imagine that my friend taunts them
whenever one of their team's players misses a goal. He screams right into their faces "You guys suck! You are pathetic! Go home and beat the
traffic!" Let's say he does this over and over. Eventually they ask him to stop doing this but he continues. Towards the end of the match the enemy
fans snap and one of them punches my friend in the face and breaks his nose. Sure, punching him and resorting to violence was wrong, but I would be
stupid to think my friend didn't bring it upon himself. By me saying this, does it mean I condone people being punched in the face? No, it does
You don't have the OPTION of rape. Even if you do it to the enemy, the fact is that you leave behind a trail of problems in the civilian
populce that has impact which comes back to bite you in the ass. You aren't a terrorist organization with a loose structure. You're one of the few
large scale armies on the planet, attached to a government and a people with international interests of all types. Most of which are harmed by such
If there is no option, then how does rape occur? There are good and evil people in the world, and there are good people who do bad things and bad
people that do good things. Free Will. There is no metaphysical field protecting people from getting raped whether they live in a democracy or a
Terrorist Camp. If the opportunity arises, the act will occur. Laws and rules are placed on society for a reason.
Rules and regulations are meant to be put in place to deter undesirable/anti-social behaviour, but they cannot stop
the behaviour. Many
instances of harm could be avoided if the potential victim shows precaution and awareness before they find themselves in a situation where they are
