Panetta's Cowardly Decision

"Military women are already complaining about increased sexual assaults. . . ." Wait till our enemies add rape to their arsenal and start shipping videos of our captive daughters to Al Jazeera. Panetta's decision was not only cowardly, contemptuous, and destructive, but also politically shrewd. It knocked Hillary's appalling performance at the Benghazi hearings right out of the headlines.

these are supposed to be SOLDIERS;if they can't fend off or fight off an amorous male soldier,how are they going to fight in combat,when things get REALLY tough?

Wait till they drag the bodies of female soldiers through the streets
In a newsworthy act of political cowardice, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta ran through the Pentagon's exit door as he announced he is striking down the 1994 Combat Exclusion Law. His timing means his successor, presumably Chuck Hagel, will inherit the task of defending the order to assign women to front-line military combat.

Of course, Panetta doesn't want to be grilled about his order. It's lacking in common sense and it is toadying to the feminist officers who yearn to be 3- and 4-star generals based on the feminist dogma of gender interchangeability and on their desire to force men...
