Ted Rall Slanders The US Military Again
In his little piece of so-called artwork from 11.10.05, Ted claims that the US Military is raping young boys in US custody. He cites McCain's anti-torture proposal as protecting detainees from "sodomy, anal rape and touching in the dirty place". In the last frame of his cartoon, Ted shows a blind-folded detainee bent over with one soldier telling another "Only rape the cute ones for now".
I am red in the face, steam coming out of my ears, hands shaking mad and disgusted. There is no place in America for this kind of trash. To have something like this piece of crap published in the US media is the lowest of the low. Yahoo and any other publication that allowed this slanderous trash cartoon to be promoted as an "editorial cartoon" need to be taken out to the woodshed. Dissent is one thing - calling our soldiers rapists and pedophiles is way out of line.
