When you are deployed you are a resource of the military, not a person. You are a tool and not a human. You sign on for this and when you are deployed you should consider yourself not human but a tool of the military.

Having been in the military, contrary to popular belief once you sign up, you lose certain rights to your body. Under some commands, a service personell is not allowed to have any sort of facial hair, can be disciplined for altering their body in any way, tattooing and body piercing. So this is a legal order by the comanding officer on the ground. It takes 2 to tango and make a baby, so he is putting their focus on the job at hand, and not on procreating. Women fought for the right to go into a combat situation and no matter if they like it or not, but they have to deal with not getting pregnant. If you think about it, you are the member of a team, each team member is trained to do a specific job, all having to work to achieve one goal. Then one of your team members has to leave due to being pregnant, and be replaced, how would you feel? And in a combat situation, you have to rely on the person you have been training with, knowing that you have to rely on them with your life.

IMO, the fact that so few women have this .. er... problem .. shows that they are indeed more guilty.. it's not that out of thousands of women in the Army, thousands are getting pregnant. It's just a few who decide that their wants are more important than the Army's needs.. they don't take their obligation fully, and should be discharged (along with the males) from the Army. Simple as that. Want to play grab ass, stick to the college campus life, stay out of the Army.

During the Second World War a chemical was added to the salt to reduce sexual urges. I think the Australians and British added bromide and the Americans salt petre....
As a woman I just don't get why anyone would agree to fight a war other than in the event of an invasion of one's homeland.
History tells us that most,if not all,wars are manipulated into being for the benefit of the money changers and other such "elites" who gain financially and sacrificially.
The end result for the soldiers who survive physically is often hell on earth, with little recompense for lost innocence.
