As most of you would know, the U.S Military holds counter-terrorism training in the Philippines together with the Filipino soldiers. However, admist the military exchange programs and benefits, another case of U.S Military crime is reported in Philipines. It is reported that a Filipino woman, aged 22, was allegedly raped by the U.S troops.

U.S Marines 'raped Filipino woman'

Five US marines have been detained in the Philippines, accused of raping a local woman.
The woman, 22, was allegedly raped by troops who were in the Philippines for joint military exercises.

Foreign Secretary Alberto Romulo said he was "deeply concerned" about the claims, and the US embassy in Manila said it took the report very seriously.

Analysts say the incident could fuel local opposition to America's military presence in the Philippines.

Or it could be that the woman has something against America?(for you pro-U.S) However, if this is the case, how could an unknown average Filipino have made such a stir that the authorities are doing an investigation into the matter?

What I want to ask is, what is happening to the U.S Military? Their strength is overwhelming as an armed military force but the do they have the characteristics of "a few good men"? and what do you think will come out of all this?

Another U.S Military's internal "struggles":

Army Chaplain gets 5 years for forcible sodomy

BAMBERG, Germany -- A U.S. Army chaplain was sentenced Tuesday to five years in prison after pleading guilty at his court-martial to three counts of forcible sodomy against enlisted men.

Capt. Gregory Arflack, 44, a Roman Catholic priest serving as a chaplain with the 279th Base Support Battalion, also pleaded guilty to three counts of committing an indecent act, two counts of fraternization with enlisted service members and one count of conduct unbecoming an officer.

The court-martial took place in Bamberg, Germany, where Arflack's unit is based.

The U.S Military is indeed scary.

This has not ONE thing to do with WoT. This is a WoT forum, not a WoAmericanMilitary forum, and every article about a uniform does not go here.

The U.S. military is scary? You find two stories about 6 U.S. military people, label the entire U.S. military as "scary", and place it in WoT?

Deny Ignorance.
