"sad commentary on our Armed Forces"

Yep. They build up warrior men, then expect them to be docile little puppies around women. Insane.

The warrior ethic needs to be a spiritual thing in addition to a mechanical thing. I think most services do a pretty good job of instilling a sense of honor in our warriors, but it's something that can always use more attention.

That said, psychopaths exist in all parts of society and some of them get into the military. It'll always happen.

And *that* said... there is a price to pay for having women in the military in the first place. Problems like this were predicted.

Yes, that seems like backwards thinking. Especially when some female troops hit the bar after work and get $ - - - faced drunk. I've witnessed that firsthand, and had to have a fellow female designated driver take the drunk women home.

One got so drunk one night at a topless bar, she jumped up, pulled her top off and showed the not so well endowed dancer what breasts look like. The bouncer told us to get her and ourselves out of there.
