Yes. Well at least for the country that puts its women in combat. Once you loose a war or two real bad, you don’t have a country to defend anymore.

Therefore, no more war for that country. One less country that can go to war could possibly mean less wars.

It probably means America will be generally more reluctant to send its soldiers to war. It also likely means our enemies will be emboldened to war against us.

So to the person who think America is the instigator of all the world's conflicts the answer is yes. To the rest of us, probably the opposite is true.

It seems that you summed up all of the main points rather nicely.

That short article was a pile of gibberish, ramblings, contradictions, inaccuracies, ignorance, just useless except as propaganda.

BTW, from my recollection in Jr. High School when Vietnam was still going on. Guys in my neighborhood got Drafted. The Army doesn’t ask Draftees if they WANT to go into Combat.

Um, no. Once the Communist get a social agenda item they like to use it, show it off, get their payback.

How does someone that stupid get published in a major newspaper?

No, it's just a monumentally stupid one.

I guess that there are an increasing number of people whose long-term memories ended on 9/10/2001, then resumed on 9/12/2001, and had no idea who destroyed the WTC towers, attacked the Pentagon, or crashed an airliner in a field in Shanksville, PA sometime in the interim. Thousands of Americans died sometime between those 2 days, but we have no idea why.

Anyway, the catchphrase in today's State Department is that it 'just doesn't matter'. Nothing to see here - move along, and no more imperialist aggressions against historically oppressed peoples. /s

Yes the article was amateurish and unintelligent, but I think it exposes the real motivation for sending women into combat. Feminists who want women in combat are the same code pinko types who are against the wars in the first place. They are commie peaceniks infiltrating the military to undermine the war effort.

Nuclear bombs meant fewer wars.

I wonder if they realize that is the ultimate anti-women in the military, argument.

The last thing a free nation wants is for it’s military to become independent and non-responsive to commands of it’s people and leaders and to start deciding policy on it’s own.

"Could women in combat mean fewer wars?"

Many feminists have said exactly that.
