Like an abusive spouse who preys on the emotional desperation and dependency of his domestic victim, Barack Obama knows that all he need do is offer some cheap street corner flowers and a few sweet words, and the previous nights and months and years of beatings will be forgiven. Just hum a bar or two of an old, shared song, and the battered partner will supply a full symphony of Barry White’s Love Unlimited Orchestra – because she needs to hear it, if only inside her own head...

“Eighteen Generals And AdmiralsWere Fired In Recent Years, And10 Of Them Lost Their JobsBecause Of Sex-Related Offenses”
At Least 30% Of MilitaryCommanders Fired Over The PastEight Years Lost Their Jobs BecauseOf Sex Offenses:
 
“The Figures Reflect Only Officers WhoWere In Command Positions”
Jan 20, 2013 By Lolita C. Baldor - The Associated Press [Excerpts]WASHINGTON — Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair, fired from his command in Afghanistan lastMay and now facing a court-martial on charges of sodomy, adultery and pornographyand more, is just one in a long line of commanders whose careers were ended becauseof possible sexual misconduct.Sex has proved to be the downfall of presidents, members of Congress and other notables. It’s also among the chief reasons that senior military officers are fired. At least 30 percent of military commanders fired over the past eight years lost their jobsbecause of sexually related offenses, including harassment, adultery, and improper relationships, according to statistics compiled by The Associated Press.The statistics from all four military services show that adulterous affairs are more than afour-star foible. From sexual assault and harassment to pornography, drugs anddrinking, ethical lapses are an escalating problem for the military’s leaders.With all those offenses taken together, more than 4 in every 10 commanders at the rankof lieutenant colonel or above who were fired fell as a result of behavioral stumbles since2005.Eighteen generals and admirals, from one star to four stars, were fired in recent years,and 10 of them lost their jobs because of sex-related offenses; two others were done inby alcohol-related problems.The figures show that 255 commanders were fired since 2005, and that 78 of them werefelled by sex-related offenses. A breakdown: 32 in the Army, 25 in the Navy, 11 in theMarine Corps and 10 in the Air Force. Anu Bhagwati, executive director of the Service Women’s Action Network, said there ismore focus on this issue now than ever in the past, but that there really is no sufficientdeterrent in place.She said a major problem is that military commanders are responsible for deciding whatcases should move forward.She said military lawyers, who are trained and have a greater appearance of impartiality,should make such an important legal decision.
The statistics gathered and analyzed by the AP represent a very conservativeestimate of the problem.
While the Army, Navy and Marine Corps provided details for all military commanderswho were lieutenant colonels or commanders and above for 2005 until now, Air Forceofficials said they could only provide data for colonels and above from 2008 until today.
 
 
Also, the figures reflect only officers who were in command positions.The numbers don’t include what could be hundreds of officers fired from otherjobs, such as administrative or other military posts.Military officials said they only collect data on officers in command who are fired.
The Army is the largest of the military services, reaching a peak of about 570,000 activeduty soldiers at the height of the Iraq war.It is supposed to cut 80,000 troops by 2017.The Marine Corps is the smallest service, with about 202,000 at its peak during the warsand is set to slim down to about 182,000. The Navy has about 322,000 active dutyforces and the Air Force has about 328,000.
