    We should never have intervened back during the Soviet invasion or later. There may never have been the events of 11 September 2001 if the Soviets had crushed the taliban and al queda, and executed osama bin laden.

    Why make the effort to draw pertinent political cartoon?
    .
    Not a single comment on the toon itself.
    .
    Americans seem pretty damn afraid of the truth, the subject is immediately changed, no, correction, the subject is not even acknowledged.

    The cartoon is painful. It reminds us of the military leaders failing to protect those who serve under them, as well as reminding us of a culture, one of many, that has such little value for women. The common denominator here are men in positions of power/authority who misuse that power.
    I also feel a sense of anger for a woman who comes across this cartoon having suffered sexual abuse that went unpunished. It is a vulgar reminder of her pain.
    As I type this, I am recalling many who have commented on this issue who have chosen to blame the women for choosing a career that puts them under the control of abusers, as if the abusers themselves are somehow the victims of the women they attack. How cruel, how misguided.
    The whole issue is vulgar and if “Men of Honor” in the chain of command are unwilling to do their duty, then these reports need to be handled by an entirely different body, perhaps even in civil court.
    Respectfully,

    “The cartoon is painful. It reminds us of the military leaders failing to protect those who serve under them, as well as reminding us of a culture, one of many, that has such little value for women. "

    You have to bear in mind that the US is a culture of bullies, from grade school on up.

    There is a constant, ongoing, scandal of sorts with regard to bullying in the schools, but if you think about it, if a culture of adults can’t stop bullying in the grade schools, you soon conclude that they must not want to stop it.

    With that base, bullying continues right on up the scale, going almost unrecognized, because people are inured to it from childhood.

    Isn’t civilization wonderful?

    Apparently, it’s not just women who have been raped — there are a LOT of men too. And that is not the only shared value that we have with the Taliban — there are many efforts currently underway to take away women’s rights in the US.
