Guess the old generals were right about the danger of recruiting women for the military. They knew human nature much better than the PC feminists did.

He'll get reduced to Colonel, slapped on the hand and be forced to retire. An enlisted troop would spend the rest of his life in Leavenworth.

Quite right. Our utopian dreaming democrat party types saw no problem with confining 5,000 young men and women aboard warships for months at a time. But don't worry, they can just be ordered to ignore human nature and courts martialed when they don't.

A large portion of leadership involves anticipating problems and taking steps to avoid them. First females, now fags. I despise our senior military leadership almost as much as the rats

IMO, he is headed for hard time and dismissal.

So...the general is the victim in this and we should boot all the women out of the military? Is that what you’re suggesting

Prior to that, Maj. Gen. David Hale pleaded guilty to seven counts of conduct unbecoming an officer and one count of making a false statement, also in connection with adultery. He was fined $10,000 and was ordered to retire at the reduced rank of brigadier general, Wright said.

A slap on the wrist. I wonder what non-com went to jail for his crimes.

Kind of a stretch to arrive at that conclusion isn’t it?

J is just stating the obvious, that this is another ‘social experiment’ gone wrong and yet they have ‘opened the gates’ to a bigger problem.

Also, I find it hard to believe that this Gen has ‘suppressed’ these illegal acts for 27 years as, for the most part, even the slightest rumor of this kind of behavior has a tendency to, if not completely ruin, shortstep ones career, with one of the ‘safeguards’ (supposedly) being that if you get ‘passed over’ enough times you are through and the mere suggestion of inappropriate behavior goes in your ‘permanent record’.

And your solution to both is what?

I’d like to think this is an aberration, and that other officers are not molesting the females under their watch.

By the same token, should the Clinton White House have been stripped of female interns? I’d also like to think Clinton was an aberration, and that other presidents aren’t molesting the interns.

Women in the military are a distraction and you don’t need to have an immediate solution (or a degree in social studies) to point that problem out.

If feel strongly enough about a problem then shouldn't you have a solution to propose for it? Otherwise you're just whining.

I'm saying I served aboard several aircraft carriers. Life was rude enough without purposeful complications based on the social justice criteria of feminazis. The purpose of our military is to defend our nation. It does not exist to serve as a never ending petri-dish for leftist experimentation.

xr is right. The general did not recently begin to abuse subordinates. He should have been stomped on long ago.

So if I'm understanding you correctly, it's not fair to expect men to follow the rules and regulations laid out by the UCMJ where females are involved? So by putting them in a position where women are around, then if they violate those regulations then it's not their fault it's the womans? So should we court martial the women involved as well? Or just them?

Now you are sounding like a pol.
I didn’t create the problem, I was against this foolishness and now I am supposed to have the solution.
It should never have started.
I am not just against women in combat, or gays in combat, I just am not a fan of combat.
Yes, ‘war is hell’ and there is absolutely no need to make it ‘harder’ for the combatant by filling his day to day life with obstacles and distractions.

Mine wasn’t a perfect Navy but women weren’t expected to live and work alongside ‘horny’ young men 24/7, yes gays (not my choice of words) were there but for the most part stuck to themselves -

When I went in if 2 hes were caught in a compromising situation you can figure they BOTH went to the brig, which, at the time, were manned by Marines.
The fact that one would be getting brig time still didn’t stop ‘them’ from approaching ‘new meat’. Sometimes they got lucky, sometimes they got their arse whipped - many a groper has fallen UP ladders while on the way to being put on report.

I don’t know your (DR) military background - it really doesn’t matter - but when the Navy got away from ‘Rocks & Shoals’ and moved into the UCMJ, there were a passel full of items that could and would call for punishment for ‘breaking’ the rules.
They even had one #134 that stated if none of the other articles are covered, this is a catchall.

In short, the Navy/Military isn’t run as a democracy, you don’t have certain ‘rights’ and for the most part you are considered guilty to proven otherwise - once charged- and justice is swift - unless you happen to be a Muslim Major in Texas that shot up a building full of people.

Well said. I have nothing to add.
