Skip to comments.Scarborough: Blood Will Be On Pentagon's Hands If It Lowers Standards For Women
Posted on 01/25/2013 4:52:55 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest
Joe Scarborough was a voice in the politically-correct wilderness this morning on the subject of women in combat. On today's Morning Joe, as other panelists voiced unerring if occasionally cautious support for the Pentagon's decision to permit women in combat, Scarborough sounded a stern warning note.
"I'll be damned; if we find out that the Pentagon is lowering standards for politically-correct reasons, then you know what? Then the blood of dead Americans in future battles will be on their hands."

Score one for Scarborough. Ping to Today show list.
American blood is already on their hands with the strict Rules of Engagement in Engagement. The day of courageous generals is past!!
By all means put men and women in the same foxhole. Why should gays have all the fun?
I was amazed that ALL the Fox panelists last night, including Dr. Krauthammer, said the decision was the right one, and not a single one of them made the caveat, “but standards must be exactly the same for every candidate”. Of course, it may be time for the Claude Raines graphic...
Women and fairies as our “front line” for national defense? And they want to take my gun too? (There are not words....)
Prediction: In the very near future we will have a lesbian four star general of the US Army.
You got that right.
Cutting military funding.
Fairies in the Military
Women in Combat
We are destroying our military and taking guns from citizens.
Russia and China are laughing their asses off.
They couldn’t have a better plan if they tried.
Even N Korea is threatening to bomb us.The mouse that roared has a loud voice when they have a nuke and a delivery for it.
Now the front line resupply will have to leave some ammo out to make room for condums and Kotex.
As if this government gave a damn.
What is the fitness requirement for infantry with regard to pull ups? If it was just required that one have to do 10 consecutive pull-ups while field dressed it would eliminate about 98% of women from the equation.
NO THEY WON’T! I heard a retired AF General say yesterday, that the women would be given dual contraceptive pills that would stop periods and also act as birth control..........
...Then the blood of dead Americans in future battles will be on their hands.”
‘S’okay, though, as long as those responsible remember to choke up during testimony as they recall hugging the family members of the dead.
Like that dead woman they found in your office, Joe?
Since when did Democrats care about dead soldiers?
Pray for America
Ah, yes. Once again obama will not be blamed. Shocker! These orders came from the administration.
“If”? You are way behind the curve, pal. The military decades ago dropped standards to allow women to serve. There are two standards for men and women in every aspect of PT. Women can graduate from boot camp even if they cannot throw a grenade far enough to escape the blast radius. Women are allowed to swim a shorter distance in flight gear and run the O-course if they want to go into military aviation. “If”? Come aboard, pal.

The USSR had women serving in combat in WWII. Lots of them were killed by their own grenades because they didn’t have the strength to throw it far enough.
