I'm sure any one of them could kick my butt. Then again, I'm a grey-haired couch potato. That's not the issue. The issue is, could any of them survive more than 30 seconds in a hand-to-hand encounter against an in-shape combat-trained MAN in his 20's? I don't think so.

With all due respect for both you and their willingness to fight for their country. Yes, I do.

Could they shoot and kill me? Undoubtedly. Could they win in hand to hand or carry the same level of gear into a combat zone or heft another warfighter over their shoulder and carry them a mile to safety? I don't think that at all.

We can all cite examples of extraordinary woman who have fought and fought well but they were extraordinary.

In this case they are citizens of a country that is very small and surrounded by vicious enemies. I admire them greatly but arming woman and sending them into combat when there are able bodied men to fight is a rejection of reason and logic.

Not unless I wanted them to...and I’m in my 50s.

Yes, I absolutely believe that. I'm six feet tall, 240 pounds. I bench over 300 pounds, squat over 400 pounds, and standing press over 200 pounds. I would break any one of them in half without breaking a sweat. Yet, despite all that, infantry combat was utterly exhausting and very, very demanding.

A uniform doesn't make you invincible. I've seen the dead bodies to prove my assertion. Women are not cut out for direct infantry combat, period.
