Concern About Military Dogs Being Used for Child Rape

Dog being used to anal rape
Rape dog in action
Rape dog in action This is a touchy topic. But we may never know the truth. For parents and caregivers with a weak stomach, I caution you when reading this. This article deals with multiple allegations by correctional officers. Also included is testimony from at least one language interpreter. Also, this is evidence about U.S. government, black operations, and the use of "rape dogs" for prisoner interrogation. Finally, we cover the subsequent spike in reports of U.S. children sexually assaulted by dogs. These attacks were clearly by trained dogs assaulting in the same manner as alleged by the camp guards. This article will then delve into the post-war U.S., and the potential connection between depraved, possibly sexually perverted former U.S. interrogators, and these attacks. Afterward, we will discuss the hypothetical chances of suing for personal injuries. The goal here is getting money damages for these children. But there are many pitfalls and possibilities. The Never Ending Wars The long wars across the world over the last decade and a half seem to have many effects on the United States and the world. Between the cost of the wars, injuries, and deaths, there may be another aspect that many have not considered. The sheer psychological toll of the war has affected many and has been a severe issue for returning soldiers and even military service animals and the former interrogators who own and control these animals. Disturbing allegations have been spreading across the internet, reportedly backed by an investigation from the Fairfax County, Virginia Police Department. In 2007, investigator Flint Waters told the Congressional Internet Crimes Against Children Task-force that he saw a graphic photo of a child raped by a dog. Does a Former Prison Guard Corroborate Dogs Raped Anally Hydrated Prisoners? These above allegations seem to be backed by a recent article in Medium described by a former prison camp guard. Aspects of using dogs to attack prisoners were recently reported in the Christian Science Monitor, itself citing a CIA report. Part of the abuse in Iraq was described as "sadistic, blatant, and wanton criminal abuses." There have been reports that military dogs have been used to rape prisoners. And stories exist of "anal hydration" in Afghanistan. for example, there is an ACLU report citing that this type of anal rape hydration was used in Gardez prison in Afghanistan. Increase In Military Vets Arrested For Child Dog Rape Porn? The Medium report also notes a sharp increase of former military personnel arrested on child pornography charges and child rape tourism including dogs in Kenya. These all seem to point to a terrible series of incidents that can bring many to tears. If such reports are corroborated, the responsible military personnel must be held accountable. There are few worse crimes than those reported. And it will be only a matter of time for investigations to determine the truth. The issue here is proof. We do have direct evidence of attack dogs being used in Abu Ghraib prison by U.S. military personnel. Of course, they were used against Iraqi prisoners after Wikileaks showed photographic evidence of naked Muslim men attacked dogs. So we definitely can establish that dogs were used to terrorize these accused terrorists. We are not disputing that this type of interrogation has historically been used to gain valuable intelligence. But what we are trying to uncover here, is how widespread, if at all, the use of these rape dogs has been overseas. And we need to know that sexual blight may have perverted many soldiers, as well as CIA personnel. Narcissist Disorder a Reason? Narcissist personality types and others may find this type of torture gratifying. My research showed that there are numerous bestiality websites across the web that anyone can view which could fuel the fire of sexual depravity. It is no stretch to imagine that many former CIA personnel and even troops are now back in the U.S., and retired. In fact, we know that former dog handlers often adopt their former working dogs. So there is a HIGH probability that people trained in enhanced interrogation, as well as dog handling, and even their dogs are now back in the U.S. Proving Your Rape Dog Case? The problem for the parents and children abused by these dogs and this personnel is proving it. We have seen recent lawsuits against the top-secret Area 51. And "National Security" concerns will likely doom these suits. So as it stands, families have to sue the dog's owner. But former CIA employees will undoubtedly be dead broke. After all, they will spend their life-savings defending against the criminal cases. Fear and Intimidation? Defendants may identify the government as a potential respondent. But intimidation will keep lawyers from suing. And sovereign immunity would most certainly become invoked. In my opinion, the only real way to continue a case like this is to dis-empower the federal government and to limit it to the Article I, Section 8, as required by the Constitution. The federal government can crush anyone. Therefore, it is highly unlikely that any admissible discovery could prove your case. And in fact, it is highly likely that a judge would seal the case and dismiss the claims of the victims based upon "national security." Courts have expanded the powers of the politicians that appointed them. Jefferson warned of this, advocating a continuous state of revolution, saying: Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual. The opponents parents will face is a government our founders would not recognize as legitimate. George Orwell wrote of this in his book 1984 stating: "If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face - forever." The only way we can change this situation is to start electing representatives who: "know the law and mean to keep it well" - Blackstone. For example, the news media has become enslaved by corporate advertisers. Most politicians pursue money and power. After all, that comes with their election. Free speech is now more about partisanship and protecting the government. After all, secular humanists have rewritten our history to mean that it is the government and not a Creator that bestowed our rights. And this is despite the fact that our Constitution incorporates the date of our Independence, and thus the entire "Unanimous Declaration" into the Constitution. Unfortunately, none of the Obama appointees to the High Court agree. They won't recognize this fact.  And instead, they tend to embrace a Roman Civil Law type of a philosophy. But that is not consistent with our Constitutional Republic. Our country has undergone a quiet revolution by lawyers: "which from their verbosity, their endless tautologies, their involutions of case within case, and parenthesis within parenthesis, and their multiplied efforts at certainty by saids and aforesaid, by ors and by and, to make them more plain, do really render them more perplexed and incomprehensible, not only to common readers, but to the lawyers themselves." (Source.) Give me liberty or give me death is now "give me free stuff." And if so, I will blindly support you. At the end of the day, parents should unplug from the state propaganda machine. Parents should study history. And people should learn their rights. It remains highly unlikely we will ever know the truth about rape dogs. At least, we won't know until we the people look find the answers and solutions. I would love to interview you if you have information about this heinous act.
