Majority of Voters Favor Full Combat Roles For Women

Given that our military is an entirely voluntary organization, is isn’t likely that a majority of voters, with no military experience, would have a clue of what it might be to experience combat. Further, if a girl gets raped while in theatre of operations, government will never share blame for putting her there. In the constellation of bad ideas, government serves up most.

Women that go into combat must know the risks and know what can happen in theater! If they do not know the risks or war they will learn real fast or die trying just like us guys that have seen combat and those that will see it in the future!

Such is war! Not pretty, not a good thing, nothing to look forward to but to avoid like the plague! But when it happens we must have a fight force that is just not projection but in actuality a machine made for death and destruction! If you must fight, fight to win! As stated by my Father who was a Pearl harbor Survivor and a US Marine that landed on two beaches during WWII! the most hard and loving man I have ever met! His word was golden and his wisdom pure! I miss men like my father!

This act may also be the final nail in the coffin of chivalry! I personally am tired of opening doors for women and getting a brow beating for being polite man!

My thought, like an opinion and everyone has one, is if women want to serve in combat then let them. They will get what it brings! There is so much going on that is out of your control when under fire and then if you are overrun or captured the world of hurt begins for all!

Let them serve! It will be a joy to see it and I think the additional brain power and diversity of thought will be a good thing! Some of the bad things would be the rape and guys getting killed trying to save a woman when the firefight begins! But we can over come those things! Woman need this and I need to see them qualify under the most strict conditions just like a man! If women can women serve in combat. If not they cannot then women are in the rear with the gear!

If women are to be in combat, all feminists and leftist females get sent over the top first! Go ahead, gals... take that machine gun... be my guest! And be snappy about it!

I think that this will open up a whole new world of combat, and put us in a position to overcome all of our adversaries. A select group of women warriors that would vanquish our enemies--we could call it the PMS brigade.

Last week as a last hoorah, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta lifted the ban on women serving combat even though women have been serving in combat for quite some time. Now, a new Rasmussen Report shows 59 percent of voters favor women serving in full combat positions.

Most voters think women in the military should be able to fight in combat just like men do. But they still believe overwhelmingly that women need to pass the same physical tests as men if they’re in special forces like the Green Berets and Navy SEALs.
