WYWTBI vs. Obama says military leaders are 'ashamed' about sexual assault, vows to end the 'scourge'


IMHO, between this weird imagery and what looks like a girl that got raped by Satan in a different poster for the same movie, among many other images, plus porn and much more sex and violence available than ever before, it's no surprise that our media driven dehumanization is spilling over into our actual individual mental and physical dehumanization. Like this article on sexual assaults in the U.S. military being a big problem. For a long time. With stats and data and everything. Obama says people are feeling ashamed and it will take a long time to solve this problem with a sustained effort. That's too bad. It should be resolved soon.

Just compare the mainstream news article following the alternative news article to see how it's normalized.

This is why I'm pushing my WYWTBI solutions in the face of this. As long as we have and reinforce different values to counter the effects of our culture on our humanity then we may be able to enjoy it better than now. This includes men, women and children finding better ways to re-value each other and casually reinforce it.

Check it out. It's been shelved for a bit, but it's on my mind since I know it's on many, many others as well...

Survey data to be released this Tuesday by the Pentagon will explain that every day, more than 70 sexual assaults are carried out against members of the U.S. military, with more than 26,000 in 2012 alone.
Word of the report’s shocking details came by way of Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI), who broke the news during a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on Monday, according to The Associated Press. The report also comes a day after the sexual assault prevention officer for the U.S. Air Force was arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a complete stranger amid a drunken stupor.
Additional data from the 2012 survey, sent in advance to USA Today, adds that only 3,374 members of the military actually reported assaults, while just 3,000 pressed charges.
The 2012 Sexual Assault Prevention and Response survey represents a dramatic increase over 2010′s survey results, when just 3,230 sexual assault claims were filed and 19,300 said they believed they were victimized. The 2010 survey (PDF) also found that 71 percent of women and 85 percent of men did not report incidents of sexual assault the year prior, meaning the massive jump seen in 2012 could be due to increased reporting instead of an increase in sexual assaults.
However, it’s also possible that there were far more than 70 sexual assaults per day in 2012. The Pentagon estimated in 2011 that about 86 percent of sexual assaults went unreported.

Obama says military leaders are 'ashamed' about sexual assault, vows to end the 'scourge'

WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama is pledging to eliminate the "scourge" of sexual assault in the military while cautioning that it will take a long and sustained effort by all military members.

"There is no silver bullet to solving this problem," Obama said Thursday after meeting with Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel and the top brass from all the military services.

"We will not stop until we've seen this scourge, from what is the greatest military in the world, eliminated," he told reporters.

Senior military officers are speaking about the problem with increasing bluntness and expressions of regret. Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, on Wednesday called it a "crisis" in the ranks, and on Thursday the Army chief of staff, Gen. Ray Odierno, publicly acknowledged his service's efforts are "failing."

"They care about this and they are angry about it," Obama said.

"Not only is it a crime, not only is it shameful and disgraceful, but it also is going to make and has made the military less effective than it can be," the president said.

Those summoned to the White House by Obama included not just Hagel, Dempsey and the chiefs of each military service but also the civilian heads of each service and senior enlisted advisers.

"I heard directly from all of them that they are ashamed by some of what's happened," Obama said.

The president added that because assault victims may be more likely now to come forward with complaints, the number of reported assaults may increase in the short run.

"I then want those trend lines to start going down because that indicates that we're also starting to fix the problem and we've highlighted it, and people who are engaged in despicable behaviour, they get fully punished for it," Obama said.
