Sex Abuse in the Military Surges

We bring women into the army and have them sharing facilities with men. We put them in or near the front lines. We let gays be out and proud.. And now we are reaping the consequences of our social experimentation. Here are a few results from a report on sexual violence in the military. (Read the full article here.):
  • A hike of 22 percent since 2007 in the sexual assaults in all branches
  • A doubling since 2006 of the number of violent attacks and rapes in the Army, from 663 in 2006 to 1,313 last year
  • A “chilling trend” of violent sex crimes rising at the rate of 14.6 percent annually, “and the rate is accelerating”
  • A 28 percent increase in the offense rate and a 20 percent increase in offenders from 2006-2011 in sex crimes in the active-duty Army
  • A jump in male sexual assault victims from 10 percent in 2010 to 14 percent in confidential reports for 2011
  • The need to fire senior enlisted Navy officers at the rate of nearly two per month because of sexual misconduct.
Some of us aren't surprised. Our government leaders have taken a military that was the best in the world and turned it into a chaotic mess to meet the demands of political correctness. So not only do our young men and women have to worry about the enemy outside trying to kill them, but the enemy within trying to rape and bugger them. What progress! Thanks, Clinton, for Don't Ask Don't Tell. Thanks, Obama, for stripping off even that fig leaf. Thanks military advisers who want women in combat. You are all responsible for this mess. Now how are you going to fix it?

I wonder if these senior enlisted Navy officers fired at the rate of nearly two per month were in Adm Mullen's thoughts when he led the charge against DADT? Let us pray for young male sailors out at sea for months on end with officers who have complete authority over their lives:

Eternal Father strong to save
Whose arm has bound the restless wave,
Who bids the mighty ocean deep
It's own appointed limits keep,
O hear us when we cry to Thee
For those in Peril on the sea.
