A Marine Corps survey shows 17 percent of male Marine respondents say they would likely leave the Corps if women move into combat positions.
The survey says that number jumps to 22 percent if women are assigned involuntarily to those jobs.
Results of the survey of 53,000 Marines were released to The Associated Press on Friday.
Mission almost Accomplished
Hussein’s hoping for the largest number possible.
The goal is to remake the armed forces into a Chavez/Castro-like politicized military force.
All part of the big plan, IMHO. Next... the draft because we won’t have enough people in the military.
With the coming budget cuts more than 17% of Marines are going to get involuntarily RIFFed anyway. Isn’t THAT convenient to the anti-military social engineers?
Beam me up, Scottie.....
What, they don’t want to join tea parties and nag the terrorists to death?
The idea behind queers and women in combat is to undermine the warrior mentality, destroy morale, and weaken all of our armed forces. Never forget, Bo is not at war with America’s enemies, he is at war with American Patriots.
And I wonder if the numbers of those who would leave aren’t really higher. I wonder how many respondents were afraid that their replies could be traced back to them and bring repercussions upon them.
The few, the proud, the wimens and fags competing for any remaining patriot’s affections...
I know many Conservatives are not in agreement with seeing female soldiers in direct combat roles. I have my own concerns about it, as well as basic cocerns about the living conditions - the “extras” needed to be imposed as well as imperfect conditions that need to be accepted - of men and women serving together in the military. Humans are imperfect and “the flesh is weak” as they say. I often wonder about the young female soldiers who become pregnant out of wedlock; curious how many of them would have met that condition if they had NOT been in the military.
People need to consider the results of the survey for what they say, which is more about the Marines themselves (78-83% of them in favor) than it is about policy makers.
Majorities of men and women see the possible roles for a woman in society differently than twenty years ago, whether they are Liberal or Conservative in all other ways.
Posse Comitatus does NOT cover the USMC; Marines very well could be used in the continental USA if the SHTF.
For every Marine that leaves because of this PC stuff, there are 30% more who remain, but value the traditions of The Corps, and are MAD.
Mad at The Regime.
And, uh.....WHAT does that mean, hmm...?
I’d like to see that survey. I’m betting most decide to get out when their enlistment time is up anyway. This could be just one of numerous reasons why.
Not that being deployed 3 times in one enlistment would be a factor./sarc
They should restart? the policy of not allowing any grunts to be married. What’s the point of being married if policies are doing everything the seemingly can to get you killed and/or divorced?
I can't think of any reason we shouldn't open up the "job opportunities" to everybody and anyone. Combat's just like video games now, right?
Just think how a little more equal opprtunity would've helped a whole lot at Normandy or Tarawa, or Iwo Jima, or Inchon, or Hue City, or Fallujah.
Sarcasm light off.
I would like to submit a secret poll of Marines, with the following questions.
1) Do you want women in combat roles? (Y/N)
2) Do you want women in combat? (Y/N)
3) Would you be willing to send women out to draw fire? (Y/N)
4) Would you be willing to frag a female officer or NCO if she fouled up and got your buddies killed? (Y/N)
5) Would you like to frag gay guys for no particular reason? (Y/N)
6) Would you like to frag the ambitious, ass-kissing officers who wanted gays in the Corps and women in combat to appease a bunch of anti-military fruitcakes in Washington and maybe get promoted? (Y/N)
7) Would you mind if two good looking female Marines put on a lesbian show in the barracks? (N)
Drive as many conservative and Christian men out of the military as possible so that those remaining will have few qualms about firing on “rebels” who refuse to bow down to the leftist dictatoriate.
I think their next move is to combine the USMC with the Army, something they have wanted for a long time. Semper Fi
If men and women are equal, why do women have a choice about combat and men have none? When my son enlisted, he didn’t have a “choice” about going into combat. just one more way to cause resentment.
One way to get women out of the service is to make it totally equal... Selective service.... Combat assignments for all. Treat the women just like the men and we’ll see how many Enlist. But the politicians will insist on quotas and 125 lb women will be able to carry less than the guys in order to be fair. Between this and the rules of engagement . Our military is being destroyed
Would these be the new gay Marines?
All foxholes will need ADA compliant wheelchair ramps.
And that draft had better include women this time, and they had better be drafted for combat roles.
They want "equality", so I say give it to them.
Only 17% real men in our Marine Corps? So damned sad.
Our dead VETS must be spinning in their graves.
Mission almost Accomplished
Churches done check, boy scouts done check, military almost done and as soon as it is they will empty out the jail system and hand these cretans guns to control the populace. A civilian national force as well equipped and well funded as the military
I’ll have to ask my two nephews. One is a helicopter pilot, the other a private.
I wonder what the percentage would be if the only Marines surveyed were infantry battalion Marines?
If - heaven forbid - we have another world-wide conflict, expect virtually 100% of these women to suddenly become pregnant.
Saying and doing are 2 very different things.
Even for Jarheads.

Those other 83% will change their minds once they have to carry the heavy loads of water, fuel, ammo, etc, or once deployment hits but magically 30-50% of the women are reported pregnant and don’t have to go. The services already see these numbers on deployments, now the infantry will see them.
