As for the reporter in Egypt.....Incredibly stupid and naive. I have been to three countries overseas where I have seen myself the mob mentality and what happens to women caught in the middle. I have also seen this type thing happen in places such as France while partying for New Years, and Octoberfest in Germany. Young men would corner an unsuspecting girl and within seconds have her panties ripped off and ten guy would get a feel. Then they would run off and corner another girl down the street. Some of it got nasty.
And for the record, this type thing happened all day long in New York City, with cops standing all around, just a few years ago.
I think for some women, this Utopian liberal mindset of how they view the world, is far different than the real world when they actually go out into it. That reporter either never left Kansas, or she is stupid.
As a military vet myself...I think the military is a place with high testosterone, high alcohol use, high divorce, and high problems. I don't even think it's a place for married couples with families in many ways. The culture and the stress all add to the problems. Keep women out of combat units and out of the front lines. Enough happens back at base when the unit is not deployed. And it only gets worse in the field.
