the US military is officially over, eventually
the GOPe will never, ever undo this
I’m sure they’ll all have to sign up for the draft,too./sarc
Well. I guess our days of “boots on the ground” are pretty much gone. Women in the front lines is stupid — we’ve decided we aren’t going to fight anymore.
Good grief! Another blow in the name of political correctness. Our enemies will be happy to hear this news!
I honestly don’t see the Republicans undoing this anytime soon. But hey, I could be wrong. Politics is full of surprises, after all.
Foxholes will look much nicer with better interior decorators.
Women are barred by Congress from participating in frontline combat. What Panetta says meaning nothing without congressional approval. The dykes will not win this one.
What the heck. Now America is going to put more of our young ladies, sisters and mothers into war? I know the Israelis are big on everyone stepping up to protect the country but does the USA really need to do this?
Since most of our operations are Muslim countries, I hope they enjoy kidnap and rape. This is a serious mistake on multiple levels. F Obama and all his administration.
It will never be undone
it’s now a “settled” issue as far as the Vichy GOPe is concerned.
Again this corrupt regime bypasses the system to rule by force.
Not really surprised.
Yup. From fudgepackers to dykes.
I have to admit, my first thought was, “Well, the Taliban might have some reluctance to shoot at a woman” but then again, this is the Taliban we’re talking about who shoot anyone, male or female, who they’re opposed to.
You know....like uppity women who try to learn how to read and that sort of thing.
“I know the Israelis are big on everyone stepping up to protect the country but does the USA really need to do this?”
Israelis tried it. It failed. Like I said above when the bar is lifted by Congress I’ll believe it. In the meantime just more BS from another Obama liberal.
This is to save Hillary. It gets her story out of view.
It is very very bad.
Thousands of positions? Wow. These modern girls...I know of about 20, and with my arthritic joints, can only really do about five of them fairly well. . . And only two are doable in a foxhole.
Tarantinoesque, with the right soundtrack.
it’s not about winning wars. it’s about ‘fairness’.
unless they have to sign up for the draft and meet the same physical fitness test standards, it’s really all about feminazis wanting their cake and eating it to.
