Social experiments eroding military

The NBC news outlet reported on June 5 that a recently convened televised meeting was conducted by the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, represented by the highest commanding officers of the five major military branches: Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard. All of the commanding officers of the five branches testified that the sexual assault situation within every military branch is currently out of control. This past year (2012) there were more than 3,374 reported service-related assaults, and it was stated that only 10-15 percent of the assaults are actually reported, thus translating into between 30,000 to 35,000 such incidents per year.

According to this news report, the major portion of theses assaults are “men assaulting men.” The high command officers also testified that the situation has gotten so bad that they are losing control, and that discipline throughout the armed forces is rapidly deteriorating with many soldiers committing suicide. A Time magazine cover story earlier this year reported that the U.S. military is collectively averaging one suicide per day or approximately 350 per year. All the high command officers testified that unless something is done soon, that the armed forces of the U.S. (“the land of the deceived and the home of the depraved”) will no longer be able to protect the nation.

Conspicuously missing from this high-level meeting – for obvious reasons – was the military’s commander in chief, himself being the nation’s self-appointed champion of same-gender perversion. None of the country’s major TV/newspaper/magazine media covered this event, again for obvious reasons, as the vast majority of all major U.S. media outlets are currently dominated and influenced by radical feminist/alternate lifestyle “political correctness.”

The feminized/homosexualized degradation of the once-mighty, once-highly vaunted U.S. military (which historically has reflected the highest standard of respect and discipline) is a telling – and chilling – sign of the current decline – and impending collapse – of American society.
