    The way Memorial Day is observed misses the point largely: sales and picnics. I’ve never understood the connection between those activities and decoration of graves with flowers and flying the flag in honor of those who died for our freedom and @ConserveGov’s right to express snarky, vulgar observations about people who don’t share his political point of view.

    “Dem Libs have many ways to Destroy the US Military. Women serving in military of the Country of the “Hook Up” is just one of them……A Hook Up + an accusation = a cushy assignment or a non-deployment.”

    In other words, you think she was just asking for it. The more you comment about this story, the more you make yourself out to believe the woman is to blame for getting raped.

    Hello ConGov, for me, the cartoon reminded me of the Westboro Baptist Church people who go to military funerals and yell horrible things.

    IMO, Mr. Rogers isn’t commenting on the number of sexual assaults in the military. His cartoon seems to warn us that the failure of the military to resolve this issue is creating this attitude towards the military. An officer and a sergeant tasked with investigating and preventing sexual abuse were themselves charged with abuse. It is a valid warning.

    @ Peabody-Martini – I believe you are misinterpreting ConGov, just as I think he saw Mr. Roger’s cartoon through a different lens. I could be wrong, but despite our frequent disagreements on issues, he is a good man and not as much of an ass as some commentators in GC.
    Me, for instance. As a Respectful Troll, it is my job to at least be a pain in the…
    well… you understand. ;)
    Respectfully,

    How dare you insult our brave soldiers. Or do you feel entitled because some of them happen to be women? Do you realize how awful you sound?

    Well, at least you understand my fairly simple point, unlike Mr Pee-body. It’s the same as going to your fathers funeral and saying “He was a good man who worked hard to provide for his family without raping his wife or molesting his kids”. As if that was in question.
    But in this case Rogers singles out our soldiers to basically say that mostly all of them sexually assault women, but in this case we must point out that he was not one of them.
    That’s a huge, disgusting brush he’s using to paint our troops.

    Having been in the military, this cartoon truly strikes home!
    I would estimate about 99% of ALL male military pesonell would NOT have their parents say those words about them!

    I agree with ConserveGov; this cartoon would be more correct if the problem was more rampant. But, it’s a cartoon, and cartoonists (and pundits and comedians) often exaggerate to make a point.

    Oops. I stand corrected. I knew it was a problem; I was not aware of the extent. I apologize.

    “Lets see we could keep women out of the military and that would solved the problem.”

    Except the problem is that the some of the male soldiers can’t control themselves and apparently aren’t expected to.

    so you’re blaming women veterans for the criminal sexual assaults. Nice Guy, slighting our soldiers because some of them have different sex organs than you.

    typical conservative – support our troops to get ’em killed, backslap them with your words. real nice guy.

    A new book showing that the French feared the US troops for all the rapine they were interested in after the Germans left.
    -
    American WWII GIs were dangerous sex-crazed rapists who the French feared as much as the Germans, explosive book claims


    • Book ‘debunks myth that the GI were manly and always behaved well’
    • By 1944 women in Normandy ‘filed complaints about rapes by US soldiers’
    • Debauchery, lawlessness and institutional racism are chronicled in book
    • Penned by Mary Roberts, a history professor at the University of Wisconsin
    • Veterans Affairs rep says there is ‘no way’ to reprimand the U.S. soldiers
    • Comes just after Sexual Assault Prevention Month in the U.S., where the military is under fire for string of high-profile assault cases
    • Japanese politician also just claimed that American soldiers used their women as ‘sex slaves’ during WWII

    The fact that you ignored my question about which branch you served in serves as an answer.
    Just as I figured, a chicken hawk.
