A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

The final nail in our military's coffin...

This tops everything thats gone before. GI Jane will be a reality soon and our military will achieve permanent second-rate status.

(Newser) – Another military taboo to fall? It looks like the ban on women serving in direct combat roles is in jeopardy. An advisory panel's draft report declares that the practice of restricting women's duties is behind the times and discriminatory, the Huffington Post reports. Among other things, the panel says it constitutes a glass ceiling for women, since distinction in combat is a primary way that soldiers advance their careers.

"The Commission recommends that DoD and Services remove a structural barrier for women," reads the draft report from the Military Leadership Diversity Commission, made up of 24 senior military officials along with academics and business leaders. It also shot down arguments that integrating women into combat would harm unit morale or cohesion. The draft report is under review and is expected to be out in March.

(End of story. My comments follow.)

I've known some women who were in the military. Some were great to work with, (as was a SCPO who ran the outside machine shop aboard the tender in Scotland) and some stunk to high heaven (an example being the LTJG aboard the tender in Sardinia who allowed herself to be photographed naked while performing oral sex on her married enlisted boyfriend). So there are good and bad, just like the men.

But there are some roles in the military that women shouldn't try to assume and that definetly includes being a member of a unit that will see actual combat. The reason? Too many guys will be worrying about "Susie" and not about the mission. Ask the Israelis, they had women in front line units and finally pulled them out. In addition to the aforementioned problem they also had the one of facing Islamic macho fools who would rather die than surrender to a woman. THAT helps to add to the body count for both sides.

Call me a sexist pig but IMO nothing good comes from this one. You can try convincing yourself all day long that there are no real differences between men and women, therefore their interactions with one another should remain the same as with members of their own sex. Spend some time working in a local high school and you'll see how absurd that is. End of story.

On a lighter note, Cookie commented about this. He's kinda ambivalent. One of his suggestions involved all-female companies in the military. That would be scary. Imagine that many women (80-200 bodies) with weapons and going through PMS at the same time. Wouldn't that be against the Geneva Convention?

But if they were allowed just think of the different names they'd have. "PMS Panzers", "Menstrual Militia", "Tampon Tsunami", "Kotex Commandos", I'm sure there are more possiblities.

Common sense is not that common - specially with Liberal elites.

Which reminds me of this:

That's 3 degrees below zero.

Hmmm, not sure on this one. I can see both pro's and cons to this. One way to eliminate worrying about "Susie" is to have ALL female units and companies.

For a few years myself and my best friend hunted with a female hunter. She was an expert markswoman and could easily walk the mountainous terrain of the Adirondaks with us.

This move could easily double the manpower of our standing military. Guess we'll have to wait and see what shakes out.

SubVet, agree that the concept (equal opportunity) is and should remain as foreign to our military service as draft registration by females has been (males only)!

The real purpose of this partisan nonsense is courting votes and weakening the U.S. military. It does not stand a chance of passage in the current Congress and would have been introduced months ago, if the genuine purpose had not been courting votes for 2012.

Very transparent. Nice post!

Subvet said...

Rick, Amen to that one.

Cookie ,As for entire companies of females, just imagine that many women with PMS at the same time going into combat. Kinda scary. I'd think it would be against the Geneva Convention.

ROTFLMAO!! I hadn't thought of that SubVet, but now that you mention it, I think that would scare the living shit outta any enemy that saw them coming! ;-)
