Reactions mixed on women in combat arms
By Nancy Montgomery Stars and Stripes Published: January 14, 2011
HELMAND PROVINCE, Afghanistan The notion that women in the armed forces might be allowed to serve alongside men in combat provoked sharp reactions Friday among a sampling of Marines on the front lines of the war in Afghanistan, suggesting a heated debate yet to come.
Its very tough, what we have to go through, said Lance Cpl. John Rolfes of 2nd Battalion, Third Marines, deployed with a Marine infantry unit at Patrol Base Jaker in Nawa. I personally dont know any women that could fulfill that role.
A military advisory panel on diversity in the armed forces signaled this week that it may recommend that female troops should be able to serve in combat units without any restrictions, calling the current prohibition an out-of-date idea that unnecessarily discriminates against women.

Gen. Keane said that the Israeli military tried it and found that it was a disaster.
She was shocked!
Retired General Jack Keane is former vice chief of staff of the U.S. Army. He was an advocate and one of the architects of the surge in Iraq during the Bush administration.
Women do not belong in combat.
Neither do men.
As we learned with the whole gays-in-the-military-episode - it simply doesn’t matter what the troops in the field and their commanders think.
It will be fine as long as there are NO targets, no militaristic language used in the presence of women, and they all get pink guns and pink uniforms.
We see how well the Navy has succeeded in creating Love Boats rather than fighting forces.
Now we will have women and gays and transgendered beings to deal with.
The actual killing of our enemies will have to be put aside.
Combat is hell, and living for days on end without hot food and hot showers, and no change of clothing is the life of front line soldiers. We already have too many of our returning service personnel coming home with PTSD and other adjustment problems. Why would women want to be in the front lines in anactive combat zone and come home with PTSD - especially any mothers who left children behind so mommy could run away from her responsibilities? Madness foisted on the American public by the liberal left.
First pillow-biters...then women...followed by left-handed HIV-positive transgendered pedophiles.
Jamie Colby seemed to be trying to convince the General, “But sir, all you have to do is train the boys to accept it........”
Jamie, if that were possible there are human traits we could “train out of people” too. Whadda ya think?
Purposely putting our women in harms way. What a great culture & society!
You know, it's kind of ironic. The military is designed to protect us from our enemies. Right now, America's most dangerous enemy is political correctness.
Can women dissociate from their emotions in a life and death combat situation as men were created to do?

Why would women want to be in the front lines in anactive combat zone and come home with PTSD
I would say they don’t.
The real reason this is even an issue: Madness foisted on the American public by the liberal left.
Now not only will our soldiers be tortured and murdered but also raped . That should make the politically correct very happy .
“Purposely putting our women in harms way. What a great culture & society!”
YEP!...it’s a sad commentary on the current state of American manhood.
ARMS AND THE WOMAN Would a Sexually Mixed U.S. Army Lose Its Wars?
In his book “The Myth of the Monstrous Male,” John Gordon recounts the story of a society lady meeting an Edwardian dandy during World War I demanding to know why he wasn’t with the boys fighting in France, he is reported to have replied, “I am the civilization which they are dying to defend.” What will happen to us when men like that are not the outrageous memorable exception but the accepted norm, and half of those dying to defend them are women?
And that's just in Boot Camp after the repeal of DADT.
Put women in the field of battle will only increase casualties. Male soldiers will be constantly looking out for the safety of their female counterparts. It’s happening in law enforcement, however you’d never know from MSM.
