    Dear Mr. Cooper,
    Thank you for reporting on the abuse and rape of women as a weapon of war in Libya. Now people need to know about this horrific trend happening now in the Congo, Sudan, Uganda, The Balkans,Afghanistan and rape as torture by the government in Iran, Iraq, Syria, Egypt to name a few against protesters both male and female. So often the US makes empty remarks of support but does not expose the true nature of these criminals and criminal regimes. Considering many of these wars are superficially about religious differences and each side presumes to have the moral high ground they sure Rape and Murder very liberally. How can the women of Croatia, Bosnia, Kosovo and Albania ever recover from the barbaric rapes they and their children have suffered. Please remind us of what real reporters do and continue to bring these war crimes to light.
