More Than 25% Female Army Officers Got Raped By Fellow American Soldiers

April 1, 2010

This is what they did with their own. So, one can understand what they can/will do with others. The number of US female soldiers sexually assaulted by their male counterparts and superiors in Iraq and Afghanistan has jumped by 25%, official US data shows.

The number of US female soldiers sexually assaulted by their male counterparts and superiors in Iraq and Afghanistan has jumped by 25%, official US data shows.

According to the latest Pentagon figures over 3,700 women were sexually assaulted in year 2009, which is close to a third of US female veteran population.

This is while the Pentagon estimates that 80 to 90 percent of rapes don’t get reported for fear of retaliation.

The Defense Task Force meanwhile found that only 8% of those military rape charges that have been reported result in prosecution, and astonishingly, about 80% of those who do get convicted are honorably discharged from the army.

“There are a few serial rapists over there who get away with it, because of the way the military law is set up,” Lori Manning from Women’s Research and Educational Institute told Press TV.

Some women who join the military to help fight in Iraq and Afghanistan say they are more likely to be raped by a fellow American soldier than getting killed by enemy fire.

Women groups are now calling on the Pentagon to hire more psychologists to help female soldiers cope after being raped. They have also asked for more military prosecutors and more rape prevention programs which have so far done little to stem the rising number of rapes.

However, even though President Barack Obama’s administration is quit aware of the problem of rape in the US military, it has been very slow in addressing the issue, and has only asked the Congress to advance more money for more prevention programs.

  1. @ All American army female rape victims should
    report to Mr. Hamid Karzai Afghan social welfare
    controler in case if stationed in Afghanistan, or
    the easiest way to be avenged, denounce them to
    Talibans, atleast u can assist their beheadings,


  2. This is no news from a country where they don’t spare their mothers,sisters and daughters.


    • @ International News Scandal diffused on all TV,
      in 2008, in USA the catho Church had to pay out of court settlement of 650 millions US$ to the
      12.000 victims of pedophile catho priests, there
      were estimated 38.000 pedophile priests in USA.
      They have day-before yesterday caught some pedophile priests in France. Incest, sexual
      perversity & porno is talmudic & biblical, just like, Hijrahism in Indian culture & Hindu mythology !

  4. The number of US female soldiers sexually assaulted by their male counterparts and superiors in Iraq and Afghanistan has jumped by 25%, “official US data” shows.

    According to the “latest Pentagon figures” over 3,700 women were sexually assaulted in year 2009, which is close to a third of US female veteran population.

    Can you please share the sources of these official figures? If not, then please stop playing such cheap tricks with people’s emotions…


    • @ reality, really bites u,
      why don’t u share the minimized reports fron
      Pantagon? would u doubt them ? whereas the
      whole world believed them when they printed out
      new MAP OF PAKISTAN, famous Piplineistan,
      approved by CIA secretly ?
      what about fake videos of OBL & Al-Qaedah,
      suspicious silence on ” Jandullah” ?
      (new version of Al-qaedah) It seems u only
      believe in Raw’s gospels !


  5. Nothing about the Americans surprises me anymore i mean it’s now common to read of bothers-sister and mothers-sons marrying eachother in Yankeeland!

    Same sex marriages have also become the norm so they can’t possibly get any lower.Throughout history whenever a people have become so immoral Allah(saw) has destroyed them as if they never existed.
