Women in Combat Spells Trouble

Women have 'been in combat' since before the Civil War. They've always risked their lives assisting injured soldiers and others, patching them up... as medics and nurses. They've been 'on the field' under fire helping injured soldiers; in tents, under fire, patching-up soldiers and the innocents caught-up in the melee; and in make-shift hospitals assisting with surgeries, amputations, and consoling dying soldiers. And, it continues to this day!!! Women handle treating the injured 'under-fire' better than many of their male counter-parts give them credit for!

Heaven bless and keep our warriors and those who serve them. It is obvious that so many of our leaders will not.

You're dead wrong and so are the military pawns of Uncle Sam and bi*tch Uncle Tom.
With little discussion or fanfare, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta lifted the ban on women in combat that has been in effect for as long as there has been a U.S. military. Feminists and some women serving in the military are applauding the move as a victory for equal rights. They claim that justice requires nothing short of opening all positions to females, regardless of the consequences to combat effectiveness, unit cohesion, or military readiness, factors whose importance they minimize in any event.

What is perhaps most striking about Secretary Panetta's action is that it reverses the combat exclusion policy that...
