This was expected. Women have falsely accused men at workplace in other sectors and now they do that in the military. On what grounds is the media taking their claims as legitimate? They are not "weak and oppressed" women. They are military officers. Hence, it is hard to believe that they simply "tolerate in silence". Therefore the military must investigate the matter and find the root cause and eliminate it therefrom. If their claims are true, there could be reasons related to combat zone psyche such as fight stress and lack of sexual intimacy. Those factors should be analyzed to arrive at a good solution.

Women claim sexual harassment when they are not happy with their male fellows. It is a trend now.
