5 reasons why you should support the military

I think it’s time for the US to make a statement to the world about the rampant corruption and dishonesty in our military.

The Pentagon’s own inspector general just released an report that has been sitting on the Pentagon’s internal watchdog for over a year now. 

The Pentagon has been accused of numerous instances of wrongdoing over the last few years, from the rampant mishandling of a number of US wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to widespread abuse of power by the Pentagon and the US military in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, and Yemen.

The report found that between 2002 and 2016, the Pentagon had a total of 639 reports of misconduct.

In most cases, the reports were substantiated and were subsequently resolved. 

For instance, in 2016, an investigation found that the US Army had violated its own rules of engagement in Afghanistan.

The report found no wrongdoing by the US government in the matter.

However, the report found serious problems with the way the Army had handled a number  of allegations, including:1.

In May of this year, the Inspector General concluded that the Army’s Chief of Staff lied to Congress about the number of troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, even though it was revealed that he was lying.2.

In October of this 2017, the Army Inspector General found that an employee in the Army Corps of Engineers had lied about the amount of water flowing through a pipeline that was supposed to be built under Lake Erie.3.

In April of this 2018, an Army officer was accused of ordering an officer who was working as a consultant to create a false report to cover up a sexual harassment complaint against a former colleague.4.

In September of 2018, a Navy commander was accused by a female subordinate of sexually harassing her, even after the complaint was filed.5.

In November of 2018 a Navy officer was found guilty of sexual harassment by a jury.

The military is currently embroiled in a number scandals involving sexual assault, sexual harassment, and the corruption of senior leadership. 

At the same time, a large number of Americans are looking for reasons to support the US armed forces, and I think that should be a reason to support our military as well.
