Have you ever seen Full Metal Jacket? At the end of the movie the Marines come under fire from a sniper. When they finally get to the sniper, turns
out it was a hooker that the boys had met earlier. My point is that woman are extremely capable of fighting men.
Whether or not they should be fighting is something else. I couldn't imagine having to shoot at a woman in a conflict like this, since the majority
of the Iraqi army are conscripted. If it was fighting against an army that was determined to kill me though, I wouldn't think twice. Second, I
couldn't imagine fighting next to my girl. I'm a "romantic" so other than that aspect of it, there's not much else. She's innocent and good in
my eyes, and I don't think that she deserves to see that kinda thing. The only time I want to see her fight is if our country is being over run by a
foreign army. Plus, what would happen if I saw her die. I wouldn't care anymore, I would just keep killing and killing and killing. They could
shoot her, then surrender, and I'd still kill them. It's bad enough to see close friends die, but someone you cherish that much, and their was
nothing you could do about it. I wouldn't care about my own safety or the safety of others, just as long as I took as many of them down with me.
So I guess my stance is: Woman are fine in support roles, but when it comes to the actual combat, I think the men should handle it.
