Slightly dated article, but not much has improved since then.

The US Military's Sexual-Assault Problem Is So Bad the UN Is Getting Involved | Mother Jones

The military's sexual assault crisis has gotten so bad that the United Nations felt the need to step in. This is just another shameful blot on a nation covered with them. To think that one out of every four or five female soldiers I served alongside would be sexually assaulted at one point.. shameful. And the worst part is the male chauvinistic officers covering up wrongdoing.

I don't know about you, but I think that female volunteers in our military should be respected, not abused like they are.

No one here is going to support our women in uniform being assaulted. That said the UN should stick to their own business and their track record of putting countries guilty of human rights violations in charge of human rights is enough to discredit them on this topic. The UN outlived its usefulness long ago.

The UN is good at what it does best: absolutely nothing.

I still don't understand why a "progressive" has a Mao icon, a figure that is anathema to any real progressive ideal.

Something smells fishy.

I don't know either. He should change "progressive" to "communist".
