Decimating US military culture was always the real goal behind building a gender neutral military - kinda like obliterating the 2nd amendment was the true goal of Fast & Furious.

... like destroying the institution of heterosexual marriage is the goal of legalizing homo marriage.

Notice a pattern here?

I would be interested to know if they have redefined “sexual assault” to include entire categories of actions that are not considered “sexual assault” in the civilian world.

Of course the Rats will fail to mention that the recent increase in rapes in the military corresponds to perverts being allowed to join.Rumor has it that hundreds of men were violated during,and after,the “Armed Forces Pride” rally recently held on the White House lawn.

Exactly. They have watered done what constitutes “sexual assualt to include wolf whistlles to a simple pat on the ass. Add to that an increasing ammount of women in uniform and no doubt those figures are going to rise.

So when’s the “high level” meeting going to take place to discuss the increase in suicides since Oblunder took over and cuffed them in their rules of engagement.

They have defined sexual assault to be something that will not be prosecutable, hence the fact that many incidents are reported, but almost none of the claims result in convictions.

MANY (most?) of these cases involve consensual sex, where after the fact the woman (yes, these are hetero) changes her mind because (a) she gets dumped/cheated on by the guy (b) her husband finds out or (c) she was drunk and doesn't remember what happened.

They are absolutely attacking anything male and will soon be coming out with a regimen of drugs to reduce testosterone to the level of a 6 year old girls to ensure that no men exist in the ranks. Soon any male on female abuse will be aptly described as a cat fight.

It was also the modern definition of rape, which is somewhat different from the standard one in that it can include changing your mind weeks or months after the fact. Lackland began with a recruit hooking up with the instructor. Telling friends she had, and in no way acting like it was anything other than consensual. But at the next duty assignment she found out that he was circulating the photos she let him take. Thats when the Lackland “rapes” were exposed.
It was a story of rampant fraternization and unprofessionalism,, but not so much a wild rapist drill instructor on the loose in the bootcamp. There are plenty of lies to go around here, and plenty of agenda driven people in the government and media to push them.

The absolute worst part is that they are jumping through hoops on what is an “ESTIMATED 26,000” assaults! The reported assaults two years ago were 19,000!

In other words, we don’t KNOW that they have climbed to 26,000, but we need a distraction and someone to put some blame on (who can handle it over the long-haul) and that would be the MILITARY! Hell, why didn’t they just “estimate” that 25% of all personnel in the military have been assaulted? I mean, make a really good, high number to really get people all worked up?

Last, but not least, understand that in the military, a “sexual assault” can be just about ANYTHING!! I had Marines who were given NJP for “sexual assault” because a woman (as President Odumbo would say) Corpse-man complained of “un-wanted flirtation” and “inuendo!”

And coincidences are always suspect. The USAF officer in charge of investigating sexual assault is arrested for sexual assault, the day BEFORE the big, long awaited, sexual assault report is to be released?? and a big white house push is going to be made on sexual assault?

This sounds like the kind of thing that happened under Stalin.

There in lies the true heart of the matter.

If the military would only "cease this faggotry at once" the whole issue would be resolved.

We all know this is directly related to gays in the military and gay sexual assault. That's the simple truth. The white hut and the media will use it for a far sinister purpose though.

Yes, that is true. But, just as true is the fact that several recruits crossed the line but are enjoying furthering their careers by claiming rape! One female instructor had sex with a recruit AFTER graduation (as well as with several other junior-grade members) and is doing time for RAPE!

Know that this was a witch hunt and although they may have found a few witches, many more people were burned at the stake!

Crossing that line and having sex with a willing subordinate is simply not rape. Unprofessional, yes. Sexual harrassment, yes. But not rape, no matter what femanazis say. They hooked up with Sgt sexy, one got pissed much later when she realized she wasn’t special. The investigation ferreted out the others that also had consensual sex wth him. BUt there was no rape there.

You know who i feel sorry for? The women who went through boot camp without the privileges that the hookup girls got from the drill instructor. (checking their email, hanging out in his office, fake work details to go get laid,,etc)
There were other women who just had to do their job the right way. Thats who the victims at Lackland were.

More excuses to purge officers?

What is it now, six or seven generals, and the other day Obama is now firing ICBM launch-control officers?

Now he has general cover to fire even more mid-level officers?
