The US military recorded 2,688 cases of sexual assault involving its staff last year, 60 percent of which were allegations of rape, a Department of Defense report said Friday. (Since most go unreported, that's uh, where's my calculator...a LOT anyway.)

Is that amount only here in America or does it include areas that are in war zones as well? It's a known fact that military of any country uses rape as fast as a bullet. Degradation sometimes works better than artillary.
