He's going to end up being a discharged General with a General Discharge for attempting a general discharge.

Every fourth man. You're being generous on that one. I would say ever other man, or maybe every third man. I was just lucky that I got one of the few really good ones early in my life.

You'd think stars & stripes would research a bit.  This isn't the first "general" to be tried.  Technically,
yeah, if you say "air force" but General Billy Mitchel was tried in 1925.

"...he kissed her without her consent "with an intent to gratify his sexual desire,"

I guess it would be pretty weird if he did it for any other reason.

This general wanted to be involved with someone else's privates.

Well, there is the nookie he could have done it for.  But, let's be real...he probably did it for the frequent flyer miles.

It was a poor attempt true but my first thought was this General isn't the highest ranking official to be prosecuted.

It truly is amazing how much of a religion politics are today. We know how weird Trumpers are and the batshiat crazy beliefs they have.
Then you have grownups acting like picking on a terrible impeached President from almost 30 years years ago is a fresh wound and you have gone too far.

You are all ridiculous!

No wonder no one ever takes them seriously.

Basically.
Personally I think the AF should be 95% women.
Piloting is one of the few military jobs women can 100% do as well as men. They are very smart with those new recruiting ads targeting women.

Sadly, the issue here is that we treat the death of men and women VERY differently.  The Air Force has developed a truly genius system where they send offices to die, and this means pilots are going to get dead if we ever fight another nation who has a competent air force.  For example, China.

Oh come on. Clinton got a BJ. JFK's White House was known as Camelot. But was more like Came-a-lot. LBJ took dumps in front of staffers. And that was while those guys were in office. At least Obama and Biden seem on the straight and level.

The fact remains that women are more suited to pilot duty than men I think. They even tend to be physically smaller which is a plus in increasingly tiny cockpits.

The least horrible explanation is that she (whom I find blameless in this as she is getting a medal from the damned prince of england which pretty much implies she's a proper badass) just got a medal after an awkward pinning, and everyone is sighing a sigh of relief that it didn't go even worse.

I agree with your statement.  I've served with women (not in the air force, but in the Army), and have been generally impressed.  And I am very aware of the dozens of completely badass stories of women flying planes in war that this will bring out.  This is not a question of ability, but of perception.  Men are sort of disposable, but dead women could very well cripple a war effort.

Actually, women make better pilots. They fit into the cramped cockpits better.

If we get to the point where our air forces are engaging each other then we are in it for real and something really bad has happened. I just think its a wasted resource.

It's also the guys to her left and right.  I can almost hear the "PHEW, thank God THAT'S over with".  Everything in this picture is hysterically funny.  And it's OK to laugh, because AFAIK, nobody was really hurt.

Yes, women make good pilots.

But, contrary to you farkers beliefs, a lot of the air force is reasonably physically demanding. Aircraft maintenance, in particular.
The vast majority of USAF is not pilots.

I worked with a LOT of women in maintenance. About 1/3 were great. The others...not so much.

The USAF is making a forceful public statement with this court martial. Usually they just tell a General: "OK...we think its time for you to leave".

We had a 1 star who almost passed out and fell off the stage during a commanders call.
Hard core drunk.

No matter how bad the sex crime, a Democrat might have done it once so that makes it okay.

I guess that's GQP logic.

Meanwhile here logic land, commit the crime do the time. Don't make a difference if it's D, R, I, officer, enlisted, man, woman, Marine, Navy, AF, whatever, sex crimes are crimes. FULL STOP.

Oh god. Read Robin Olds's book Fighter Pilot.

How the hell they never court martialed anyone in that culture is beyond me.

And that circles around to "only some jobs open to women".

In my previous life as an armament specialist...I could send any 3 random males to load a missile.
I could not blindly select any 3 random females and still do it.

"In 1965, when I headed the U.S. Information Agency, I was approached by a shaken White House employee who told me of her first duty trip to the Texas ranch where President Johnson often retreated. She said she awakened in the wee hours of her first night there in terror, certain that someone was in her room. When a little pencil flashlight was shone on her face, she was too terrified to scream. Then she recognized Johnson's voice saying, "Move over. This is your president." She said that, intimidated, she moved over.
She insisted that she didn't want to file charges or expose LBJ. She just wanted a comparable federal job where she would be beyond the president's predatory reach. I telephoned Johnson's aide, Bill Moyers, and within 24 hours that woman had a good new job in a major federal agency."
