I don't think that the majority of you realise quite how many women are already in forward roles in combat. There are the medics, interpreters, female engagement teams artillery gunners etc who already patrol with us, the infantry. I fail to see how this differs from them deploying in a combat role with regards to the risk of capture and so on.

My main issue is that of the infantry mind set both in combat and peace time. We are required to do some pretty nasty things in war. I don't know if most women have the physical aggression to do the things we do. As for having women in a regular battalion in peace times - I forsee a world of sh1t with regards to discipline issues. Keeping baby squaddies in line is a pain in the arse at the best of times without throwing a load of females into the mix.

Instead of pulling CQ you will be pulling nursery detail at the battalion aux center. Wait ,you will see it soon if this happens

You're against fighting for America in general from this I gather?

Yeah Ladies.. you go girls. More power to ya.. er.. don't come crying to us men when you realize you gals made a Big mistake.

I mean it just seems a lil offensive all around to both genders. On one had, you appear to be calling men absolute morons and on the other you're trying to imply that there isn't a woman on Earth with an emotional constitution.

Sorry if I got this wrong, but that's what I'm getting from it. Maybe you should move country?
