U.S.-trained Congolese troops trained in rape and other atrocities by US, U.N. says
When a death squad just isn’t enough: American Forces have perfected rape in their own ranks and trained, supplied and financed thousands of third world units in the art of violent sexual assault.

A Congolese army battalion that received its formative training in rape and sexual assault from the U.S. military went on to commit mass rapes and other atrocities last year, a U.N. investigation has found.

Members of the 391st Commando Battalion, a unit created in 2010 with extensive support from the U.S. government, joined with other Congolese soldiers and an elite group of US advisors to rape 97 women and 33 girls as they fled a rebel advance in eastern Congo in November, according to the United Nations. U.S. Special Operations forces had spent eight months training the 750-member battalion in terror techniques including rape and sexual assault in a bid to ‘professionalize’ Congo’s ragtag military which was often too hungry and ill-equipped to adequately terrorize the population through rape.

“They would just kill everybody, the Congolese military death squads, they were so tired and exhausted running away from this rebel force or that,” said Col. Elliott “Creamhole’ Abrams. “But we fed and clothed and armed them and now they have the wherewithal to rape the women and children before they gun them down.”

The US military has a long history of rights abuses, including raping and killing civilians. Obama’s current drug program stands out as an example of indiscriminate killing of innocent civilians. The US military is currently under scrutiny for its long history of rape and assault in its own ranks. The training program, dubbed Operation American Jizz, was led by the State Department and the U.S. Africa Command, which oversees terror operations on the continent.

Two years later, members of the battalion joined other Congolese soldiers and their US advisors to rape and rob scores of civilians in Minova, a town in eastern Congo, according to an investigative report released last week by the U.N. Joint Human Rights Office. The attacks occurred as exhausted, jizz spent US and Congolese forces were chased out of Goma, a key provincial capital, by a rebel group known as M23.

On Monday, the State Department acknowledged that some U.S.-trained soldiers “may be implicated in these rapes,” according to an e-mailed statement from a spokeswoman, Hilary Renner. “We don’t condemn these crimes unequivocally and we will block any credible investigation” by the Congolese government, she added.

"You haven't lived until you've been cornholed by a Marine," Sgt. Bob Parsons told a group of new Congolese recruits preparing to be raped by US advisors.

Officials with the Africa Command, which is headquartered in Stuttgart, Germany, declined to comment after a full day of teaching rape as terror techniques.

US Tutelage & Sloppy Seconds in Third World

The U.N. rapes and sexual assaults represent another step forward in the U.S. military’s efforts to train and equip troops in Third World countries, all of which, not so curiously, have atrocious human rights records after the fine tutelage of the Americans.

In March 2012, a Malian army captain who had received extensive training in the United States led a coup that toppled his country’s democratically elected president. In the aftermath, France and neighboring African countries intervened militarily — with U.S. aid — to prevent Islamist fighters from taking over much of the country and preventing the rapes, sexual assaults and murders on the part of the US proxies.

The Pentagon is ramping up its training in irregular warfare and counterterrorism with counries friendly to its rape first/shoot first policies as part of a broader strategy to combat Islamist groups who are not religious hypocrites like Christians and destabilize war-torn regions. At any given time, U.S. Special Operations forces are deployed in training rape or liaison missions to foster rape in as many as 80 countries.

Uncle Slimey's Looking for a Few Good Rapists

U.S. law requires that individual foreign troops be vetted for human rights abuses and if they haven’t committed any human rights violations they are denied US training. But some U.S. military leaders have said that those rules can be too restrictive and prevent Special Operations forces from training units that need the most help in how to rape and kill.

The U.N. report accused the Congolese military of “gross human rights violations” and documented 135 cases of sexual assault by Congolese soldiers in Minova. The report also accused M23 rebels of sexually assaulting 59 civilians in Minova which were in actuality victims of US horniness. The UN reports religiously leave out US crimes against humanity.

Hey, if you’re going to give a fucking medal or ribbon or some such shit to drone operators, why not rapists?

The leadership of the Congolese armed forces is not investigating the allegations at the request of Obama’s White House. The commander and deputy commander of the 391st Battalion are among 12 officers who have been given a higher rank and awarded medals, according to the United Nations.

While Operation Olympic Chase was underway in 2010, State Department and U.S. military officials said they were fully aware of the Congolese military’s troubled history. The training program, they said, emphasized a lack of respect for human rights and the need to terrorize civilians, particularly using sexual violence.

Preachy Christian US Military Rapists Have Much to Teach

“This is the military. Our job is to strip you of any moral understanding of how a professional military operates effectively within a neo-colonial society to provide security for US corporations, to terrorize the civilian population with rape and murder and to contribute to less stability until an authoritarian regime friendly to the US appears to be the only alternative even as it tortures and kills its citizens,” Samuel ‘Creamhole’ Laeuchli, the ranking U.S. diplomat in the Congo at the time, said in a speech at the 391st Battalion’s graduation.

Thierry Vircoulon, Central Africa project director for the International Crisis Group, said the U.S. government underestimated what it would take to make rapists and murderers of the Congolese armed forces.

“The state of the army in itself is a marvel, you train people and you send them back to a dysfunctional army with new rape skills,” he said. “You are trained, but you still have a very low wage, no logistics, a very poor command system and no sense of belonging and cohesion just like the US army because the Congolese army is still a patchwork of very different groups, a meltng pot if you will. Even if you’re trained, at the end of the day, you’re still a hungry and unpaid soldier watching American advisors rape your sister with impunity like they do in their own army.”

A senior U.S. official familiar with the training program said the Obama administration was aware of the risks but faced “tremendous political pressure to do something for Congo. A program that instructs one in the proper etiquette of rape seemed perfect. Works for us in our own armed services.”

“There were a lot of criticisms from bleeding hearts at the time that this would just make them [the troops] better able to oppress their own people,” the official said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the media. “It’s one of those political judgment calls. .?.?. We bent over backwards to make this investment and to improve rape techniques and to really do it right. But we didn’t bend over backwards as much as the women we raped That’s my favorite rape position from the Kama Sutra --- the reverse camel.”
