Perhaps you all need to step back and do a little soul searching. You've been attacking someone who you most likely agree with on most things with very little attempt at rational discussion.
Also the other military people commenting here also prove my point as to how they react to nothing but civil discourse. It brings up the knee jerk "us vs. them" reaction without even know what is being discussed. Yeah people say the military won't fire on US Citizens but the discussion here proves differently.
I'll repost it for the lazy. My original point was that when the traditional sources of soldiers begin to leave or not sign up for the military the Socialists will look elsewhere to fill the combat ranks. Non-Citizens and women being two "new" sources, why do you think they changed the rules recently? Look what's coming down the pipe with the immigration bill. They are looking for sources that will willing attack Americans. Women, as you and Nana have so aptly proved, can be easily incised to hating the enemy by merely implying crimes, negative behavior or even beliefs towards women. This is irregardless of their ability or quality of service in the military.
Why don't you man up Marine and slog through the mud and the blood and get down to the original discussion?
No she does not at the pertinent info is way down, Also she got mad and I wasn't even trying to make her mad. I've been only polite to her.
i like how you keep posting further and further from the actual posts discussing the topic. Nice tactic. You've already set people's assumptions before they read what I've written.
Nana82 way to act like a liberal, you attack personally without even attempting to refute anything I've said. Even if she's way off topic of what my original point was, which had very little to do with women's ability to be exemplary soldiers. In fact from my previous reading of her posts I'd put her (and her daughter if they are anything alike) in the group that would probably be driven out or choose not to have their children serve as a result of the changing polices of our military. I'd also like to point out that at no point have I been uncivil or impolite, that has all come from you two.

I have no issues with women serving in the military, I do have issues with them in front line infantry and armor combat as the large majority cannot meet the physical requirements needed to do so effectively. You are quite correct, men do have their fair share of bad apples, never stated otherwise. Women however do bring a different set of issues when mixed with men.
The more you post the more you prove my point. You're angry and its personal just like it is with Nana82. My original post mentioned nothing of the ability of women to serve, I mentioned nothing until a later post and I'm not the only one. I'm merely relaying what I've read and heard. I said that they would not hesitate to fire on US citizens. Stories told to soldiers about the "evil" enemy are nothing new, and as you and Nana so aptly prove anything that can be even slightly construed as an attack on womanhood will have you mad, stories of rape or abuse would have women foaming at the mouth furious. Just like Nana's post where she calls me a jack@$$.
An entire gender really? If I'm so full of it why then do they want women in the fighting ranks when many male and quite a few females in our Armed Forces state its a bad idea? Also my point was proven, the way women react to anything they percieve as even the mildest attack they respond overwhelmingly. It's the momma bear you gotta worry about son. Its something that, though women may not want to admit it, is a blind spot in the American Woman's psyche that can allow them to be manipulated easily. Look at how women attack other women over wanting to stay home with the kids. Its that woman's choice, however they get attacked for somehow setting back women's rights for choosing not to have a career while thier kids are young.
