The effectiveness of the fighting unit is a matter of life and death— and here we are playing dangerous political games. The Israelis found that having women on the front lines was a disaster for another reason: men are biologically wired to protect women. When the women got wounded, it caused even more casualties.
It’s definitely a mistake. When they show these women, they’re invariably behind a mounted machinegun or, in this case, minigun.
