Does the term "paper tiger" sound familiar for these gentlemen? Where were the female generals? The only females at the hearing are members of Congress. Did anyone notice the USA brass did not mention any problems in Japan and other countries such as rape by the military. The situation will get passed around in the typical USA military process. Hurry up, and wait forever for change.

They need to up the punishment for sexual assault..

Not sure that's the right signal to send: "If it wasn't for harsh punishments US military people would sexually assault women by the thousands."

I suspect, however, that increased harshness of punishment would not stem the problem to any great degree.

Hashimoto had 0 point he is a disgrace to everyone in Japan. Seriously why should women be required to have sex with a military person just because they need to "relieve their sexual tension " wanna relieve your sexual tension go find a girlfriend damn it. And every guy who agrees with him has 0 understanding and are seriously digusting for even agreeing to that.
