Okay a little dose of reality. NO ONE, man nor woman can say how they will react during first contact. The first time you have a live round fired at you in anger is life changing. I have seen people who thought they were Audey Murphy curl up and cry, while "nerds" who I thought would run stood their ground and fought like Iwo Jima Marines. Saying that because a person is a woman she will not fight as dirty as a man is IGNORANT. It also DEFIES HISTORY. REPEAT AFTER ME.. STALINGRAD, KURSK, SEELOW HEIGHTS and 10,000 other russian front battles where woman cut men into pieces with knives and shovels, where a woman was the #1 SNIPER in the entire war. Are Mr and Mrs John Q Public ready for little brandy to come home in a body bag? Probably not

It's fine to give examples of a few exceptions, but your success depends upon a large percentage of women acting in a way that is contrary to their American upbringing.

Martin96, you're right about Soviet women on the front lines in Stalingrad--not so sure about Kursk, unless there were woman tankers.

It's not about women having courage. it's about them not have the physical built or strength to do the job. It is a complete A$$ kicker for young men in outstanding shape.

The term “moronic” is defined as “notably stupid or lacking in good judgment.” It is frequently used as an insult.

The Obama administration is moronic.

This is not an insult.

President Obama’s latest “notably stupid” stoke of America’s calculated slow burn is the decision to lift the ban on women in direct combat. Along with the move a few years back to turn the Officers’ Club into the Blue Oyster Bar, this most recent social experiment with national security represents one small step for the “progressive” agenda and one giant prance toward the pansification of the greatest military...
