(CNSNews.com) - Gen. Martin Dempsey, President Obamas chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said on Thursday that the U.S. military could figure out ways to preserve the privacy of young ladies serving in frontline combat units, including special forces combat units such as the Navy Seals and the U.S. Armys Delta Force.
Progressives. Don’t. Care.
The military is just another government bureaucracy to them, soldiers are just more government jobs, and any problem that comes up will be met with policy changes and more money diverted from warfighting to policy enforcement.
Readiness and capability is a punchline to them. They never intend on getting into another ground war. The future is drones, haven’t you heard?
The idea that the military is anything more than a symbol of outdated conservative thinking is comical to them. The only reason progressives like it at all is because everyone wears a uniform and obeys whatever social experiment thrown at them without a word of complaint.
Don’t tell that that the military is being made into a useless, ROE-and-policy bound Gulliver. They. Don’t. Care. In fact, total victory to them is turning the military into a neutered and inoperable joke.
Just bring along separate Port-a-Potties. No biggie.
I agree. What is also infuriating with this whole idea is that women in the military can help (even if they aren’t on the front lines). I am not saying it is equal help. I am saying that you still need doctors, nurses, dentists, and folks to keep all the paperwork. Those jobs DO help.. it may be very different than front lines, but the military (at least how I see it) has many specialities/needs that require people not on the front lines. As a Mom to 2 girls.. I can honestly say that I never had that type of upper body strength nor do all the women I know. Yeah.. are some fit and can run? Sure.. but fighting on the front lines isn’t working out in a gym. This will destroy the military IMHO.
I wonder how they plan to get the enemy to cooperate with all their politically correct plans and ideas in combat. Or will they blow all this smoke about women etc in combat, but when it actually comes, the usual will out at the sharp end-white males.
They already have in the military and in civilian applications over the 40 some-odd years that America has been upholding The Big Lie. Whatever comes now is the denouement of America's dishonesty NOT the beginning.
The Navy method of berthing called ‘Hot Racking’ will take on other meanings.
Dempsey consistently proves with his statements he is unfit for service. He is a slave to his master.
All you military and ex-military guys out there. How many times were you referred to by officers and NCO'S as "young gentlemen"?
This info is a little old, but here’s what I found:
“A 1996 report by Patricia Thomas of the Navy Personnel Research and Development Center in San Diego described the sexual and reproductive patterns of several thousand women aboard fifty naval ships. Their rates of pregnancy were about comparable to those of civilian women of the same age. neither the strict legal barriers nor the relatively draconian conditions of the Navy had apparent impact in inhibiting a general American pattern.
Thomas did not find, as some critics had claimed, that women became pregnant in order to escape duty. Her evidence for this was necessarily indirect—there were similar responses to questions about stress and depression among pregnant and nonpregnant women—but her analysis is more respectful of her informants than one that defines them as malingerers. Perhaps some were. Then why would roughly the same number of Navy women become pregnant as civilian?
She found that 27 percent of pregnancies of women based on ships were planned, whereas nearly half shore-based ones were. More ship women used contraceptives than shore women, though, remarkably, 41 percent used none. One hypothesis offered by naval medical personnel is that the irregular schedules and strenuous work on board ship caused women to forget to take their contraceptive pills.”
“... this smoke about women in combat..”
I can see clear as a picture what will happen. The media will do “fluff” pieces about Tiffani or Amber being a soldier.. how they saved the good guys, captured the bad guys etc... The interviews will be full of lies. See, look at little Tiffani, no bigger than a gnat, and she saved all the men around her. Therefore, all the little girls in America can do the same thing. What will NEVER be shown is when Tiffani is captured and what happens to her or how so many of her male counterparts die trying to save her butt. Reality doesn’t fit the agenda.
We not only deserve it, we’re getting it. The worst hasn’t even begun to be seen.
Never. Although a group of officers is addressed as "Gentlemen" without the "young" in front of it.
They don’t need any privacy since everyone is equal now!
What is happening is that we are witnessing the dismantling of the mighty American war machine. With all of this nonsense happening now, there would had been no way our boys would have beaten the Insurgents in Fallujah and Ramadi.
Now that women are allowed in combat positions, they must be forced to register with selective service at age 18.
It's a corrupt practice but it certainly tells you that Piñata is still a capable guy, or at least handy with the viagra. What do they call themselves, 'eye-talion stallions'?
Both clintbilly and barry have ensured that nobody but Perfumed Princes get promoted in their military.
Now, the Perfumed Prince speaks out, while licking barry’s slippers.
We ALL know whats gonna happen... the women will merely become c*m dumps.
Let`s not f**k around and be real here.
I’m a woman, and I agree with you. The feminisation of society, politics, education, heck, even debate, has been nothing but negative, and the hypocritical feminists have had it both ways the whole time-they want to be “equal” with men, but they want “female privilege” when it comes to reproductive rights, combat, etc. No crying in baseball? Heck, some females cry in the boardroom! If women aren’t prepared to pay the same price that men are expected to pay for their “rights”, then it’s not “rights” they want, but “privileges”. And that is exactly the case.
