What is it with the world?

I keep thinking things can't get worse but with each new day, I'm proven wrong.
The chief prosecutor for the International Criminal Court said Wednesday he is investigating whether Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi provided Viagra-type drugs to Libyan soldiers to promote the rape of women during the current conflict.
It's quite a world, isn't it? And isn't it funny how it's always men doing the horrible things? (Or women pushed around by men.) I'll say it again: everyone on Earth and especially all the men need to read "On Aggression" by Konrad Lorenz. Until the lesson he reveals in this book is learned, we should expect a continuation of this kind of thing.

Actually women can be pretty horrendous as well, this Casey trial is a fact in point. Men go after women and women go after their children. Really odd...

True, but we know which way the numbers lead. In my true crime reading days, it seemed to me the women killed kids because they thought it would make them more attractive to men: being kidless, in other words. And sometimes they just didn't like the responsibility. Women kill for different reasons.
