(continued) Wars are not won through negotiation. Negotiation comes after victory. Ask Neville Chamberlain how his negotiations went with Hitler. Ask Obama how his are going with Iran.

(continuing) You do that through superior strength. Negotiation comes after victory. Ask Neville Chamberlain how his negotiations with Hitler went, or ask Obama how our negotiations with Iran are going.

Social experiments, such as allowing women in combat role positions rarely, if ever, work. The oxymoron here is "level playing field". If standards have to be adjusted, there is no level playing field. This may anger some, but we did the same thing with "equal opportunity legislation". We lowered the standards for some minorities in colleges and employment circles. One of two things happened (and sometimes both things happened). The education system as a whole suffered and was "dumbed down", and/or those admitted under lower standards failed miserably. Some may have made it, but some women will make it in the military as well. Mr. Williams is correct, the purpose of an army is to protect and defend against, and defeat our enemies.
In the story of creation, G-d created man AND woman. HE did not make us androgynous. This creation makes it evident that both have a function. They and their respective functions are not the same and should not be forced to be. Are men and women equal? YES, in all things social. But certainly not in all things physical. Like most species in the animal kingdom, males are larger and stronger. However, I can point to many instances when men are not smarter. Women have no place in combat positions, just as men have no place in birthing babies.
I have a sign on my office wall that reads, "Voting for someone because he is black is just as racist as voting against someone because he is black."
There are many key phrases (sound bites?) that should become the mantra for Mitt Romney. Especially significant is the last one - "If economic disparity is a problem, then the way to solve it is by raising those who are stuck near the bottom, not tearing down those who have climbed to the top." Well done Mr. Jacoby
John, I am surprised at your answer to Comrad Cane. In his second sentence he showed that math is not his forte. He mentions a THIRTY YEAR PERIOD between 1945 and 1965. When I went to school (admittedly long ago) that was a TWENTY YEAR PERIOD.

MTV's 'Savage' Schoolyard

While I think that most of MTV's programming panders to sleaziness, we must always remember that the ultimate control must remain in the hands of the parents and viewers. It is known as either the channel selector or the on-off button.
