    My daughter is a major. She says being an officer insulated her from some of the things noncoms faced.
    However, whenever I hear about these stories, I think of this song.

    Our sisters, daughters, and mothers who are serving their country deserve respect, civility, and the protection of their brothers in arms.
    There has been postings on this topic from folks who seem to believe it is the women’s fault for signing up to serve. I find that idea vulgar and out of touch with life in the 2000s. This strange form of Christian “Sharia law” that wants women to “stay in their place” has not place in our republic.
    Fox News recently had a small civil war when some of the males on the show, including one of their token liberals, bemoaned the fact that women, particularly single women, are now the primary earner for households. Greta and a few other ladies found that attitude archaic and wrong.
    I agree. In a civil society, we all work together to help EVERYONE succeed.
    That said – I know many women who would love to stay home to care for their children and homes but because husbands are absent, unemployed, or underemployed, the women must also work or the family will do without everything from healthy food to actual places to live.
    It is the duty of all Americans to protect those who cannot protect themselves, it is recognized in the Constitution when it says we do these things for “the common good…”
    Respectfully,
    C.

    I know several ladies in our military who would be glad to show you how they can “break things”.

    “So now, the important thing in the Military is not how to kill people and break things…….It’s how to pamper the new little darlings so they feel important and needed.”

    No. The first and foremost thing in the military is to instill discipline and sense self control into the troops. Is it that difficult of a concept for you to understand?

    Well said, as usual.

    So you approve of a military that rapes women? That was one of the things that distinguished US troops from others in previous wars: that we didn’t use rape as a weapon, let alone on our OWN TROOPS.

    But who’d have pot in Viet Nam?

    Maybe if you explained yourself better you wouldn’t have to ask people to read your poorly written junk over and over.

    How about World War 2 when the French were more afraid of the rapine Americans than even the Germans who occupied for 3 years?
    -
    Seems to me that if the military is a reflection of our society then our society is damaged and in need of being repaired.

    Typically your argument comes from a distorted caricature and not reality makes your conclusions equally distorted.

    Your comprehension is suspect due to your ideology occluding your vision.

    I know, you post for the Far Right Radicals of which you represent. It shows.

    You’ve got it backwards – the Military is less Christian (more a mix of religions) than it’s ever been, the way the rest of the country is going as well, unfortunately. There’s no excuse for sexual abuse, but don’t blame it on religion – blame it on evil people, no matter what religion they profess (or don’t profess) to have.

    Damn what is it like being a bigot.

    Listen the law will not allow forced lie detector test on criminals. Fine, let the victim have one, it will not do anything to the creep but it will prove the victim is not lying.

    Then there is a lot you can do. Even for some technical reason you don’t get the creep on rape you got, Art. 92. Failure to obey order or regulation, Art. 93. Cruelty and maltreatment, Art. 97. Unlawful detention and Art 107 False official statements.

    And failing all that his commanding officer then can add that to his performance review and run him out.
