what kind of argument is that? Ignore the facts that are inconvenient and harp on others? Of course Isreal counts. Women do very well in the Israeli military - and standards are not lowered because of their inclusion.
Women have been in battle throughout the centuries - It's no accident that Mars was God of War, but Mathematics, Logic, and Battle Strategy belonged to a woman-- the Goddess Minerva. Roman generals made offerings to Minerva before a battle, because they really, really wanted to win.
This is worth repeating! Thanks.
I think that womens service in combat roles in the IDF should not be widened, he said. I cannot even imagine a female soldier serving inside a tank or in elite infantry units, mostly because of operational considerations. The army must not allow this thing to interfere with its operational ability.
Laws that mandate the inclusion of women in combat units place the military in a nearly impossible situation, he said. Expanding female service will be a grave mistake that will damage the prowess of the army. Womens service in roles that are not suited to them might harm state security, he warned.
General Ron-Tal led the fight to include woman in combat roles ten years ago. He evidentially has relearned the lessons of the 1948 war.
No. If this nation was under constant threat from Canada and Mexico, I would be in favor of putting women into combat because there would be no other choice. This is why Israel is justified. Since we do not have this issue, we have no excuse.
As has been said before, there is no problem with women serving in the military in support roles, but to place them on an equal footing with men when it comes to combat is a gross and unnecessary alteration to the already superior structure of the US military.
Please, when the first videos come back from the Middle East of women having their heads cut off after being raped, tell us then that you’ll be happy to have your daughters or granddaughters drafted like males.
