    Dumping the entire military justice system for sexual assaults is not only unrealistic, it would likely be harmful to the soldiers that we are trying to protect.

    As an example, a sexual assault that occurs in Afghanistan would not be prosecuted effectively (if at all) in the Afghan civilian court system, which has a record of blaming the victim for her own assault. Even in the USA, some civilian courts too often do the same thing.
