    Anniversary of the Battle of Monte Cassino



    This week marks the 75th anniversary of the WW-II battle of Monte Cassino. It is also the anniversary of a shocking atrocity carried out by North African soldiers in the Allied army: The mass rape of Italian women and girls.

    "
    A French general in 1944 promised his Moroccan colonial troops that if they helped take Monte Cassino from the Germans, they could run amok for 48 hours and rape as many Italian women as they liked. Sophia Loren won an Oscar for "2 Women," but US has forgotten. Italians haven't."

    The "Guardia Mora" of Franco (a personal security system for Spanish Dictator Francisco Franco, who was pro-Fascist and pro-Nazi) was known to rape on a systematic way. Republican women and children knew they had to be far away from them.

    Current Spain subsidizes the "Guardia Mora" with millions and millions of euros nowadays.

    It's horrific the things that went on during World War II and its prelude. There's the Rape of Nanking as well as the atrocities committed during the Spanish Civil War.

    What is particularly horrifying to me is that at Monte Cassino it was a French officer, not a Nazi, who permitted this to happen.

    Meanwhile, the world forgets.

    Yes to all. In Spain, it was a supposed Christian Catholic who permitted that to happen.
