Study Finds Women Donít Belong in Combat
Arutz Sheva ^ | 11 Jun 2014 | Gil Ronen

Posted on 06/11/2014 6:55:16 PM PDT by docbnj

A new book sums up 13 years of research on female participation in IDF combat units and declares the feminist experiment in the Israeli military a failure. “Lochamot Betzahal” by Col. (res.) Raza Sagi, a former infantry regiment commander, points to high rates of serious injury among women serving in combat units, and to involvement of radical political groups behind the scenes of the campaign for combat service by women.

The author thinks it strange that those advising the army on the use of women in combat are basically anti-military radicals. This is an interesting Israeli view, because the experience of Israel is often cited as evidence by those pushing for a feminized military in the United States.

That was the case in the U.S. as well, of course.

I think the confusion on women in combat comes from the fact that, under low stress conditions women are flat out better at multi tasking. However women are, without a doubt, much weaker physically and under pressure they tend to seize up. They cannot muster that berserker rage that screams “F**k it all - if I am going to die I am going to take as many SOBs as I can with me.

I don't see that, around the house they just seem like it, but not in the big areas.

It's terribly sexist, but I think this is true. I've seen it many times. Just as one instance, my wife is a reasonably intelligent woman, but if she is under pressure, her IQ drops to about half it's normal level. "I don't know what to do!" is about all she can manage until the crisis is over.

The egghead dumbasses who make stupid decisions like women in ships and women in combat NEVER have to suffer any of the consequences of their decisions!

Women do not belong on Navy ships and women do not belong in combat units!

Every decision made with respect to the US Armed Forces should be made with one goal in mind: INCREASING THE COMBAT CAPABILITY OF THE ARMED FORCES!

All other considerations are simply BS!

This can only be properly assessed with pictures of IDF babes at the beach!

So I guess this means that Barry’s “openly gay” and “evolved” military probably won’t work either, huh? Hagel’s Transgender Army sure is going to look weird on the battlefield wearing those high heels.

How could anyone even come up with Trannys in the military. Obama and his thugs hate our military and are trying to destroy it.

In the eighties there was a destroyer tender with females on it. The USS Puget Sound AD-38. We called her the Pubic Mound.

>>>“F**k it all - if I am going to die I am going to take as many SOBs as I can with me.

Not all of us are like that though many are. If all goes to hell, everything drops. I don't like torture or seeing it done to anyone. I do understand what you mean though; many people would freeze up, whack out and or to panic. It's a tough job for all of them as it is now. I never wanted to see women in combat but now it's there and I see no one changing it for now.

“Margaret Cochran Corbin (1751-1800)

MARGARET COCHRAN CORBIN
After taking over her husband’s cannon in battle on Manhattan Island, now called Ft. Washington, New York, Margaret Corbin was badly wounded. She was the first woman to receive a military pension.
...
During the Battle at Fort Washington on November 16, 1776, Corbin went with her husband onto the battlefield. Her husband was a matross, which meant he loaded the cannon. Corbin helped him with this task. After her husband’s partner was killed, he took over firing the cannon, and Corbin began loading the cannon. Her husband was also killed, but Corbin continued firing the cannon alone. Other soldiers took notice of her excellent aim. Unfortunately, so did the British who were soon targeting her with their own cannons. The British eventually won this battle but Corbin’s cannon was the last one to stop firing.”

Multitasking was a word invented to cover up the inability to focus, something a lot of women suffer from.

USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVAN-69) deployed with 400+ females in 1994. “Ike” became known as “The Love Boat,” because of the large number of pregnancies.

And just how, might one ask, is combat effectiveness to be improved with homosexuals and transgenders in the ranks?
