RE: "especially after today's decision on women being permitted on the front lines."
There are no "Front Lines" in the historical context. A soldier is on the front lines the moment he or she steps off the plane in Afghanistan or Iraq. The present leadership of this country has decided to sacrifice its young women in the name of political correctness and social experimentation.... and they have a ready supply of bull-dykes to trot out in uniform to convince the general public that most military women are in favor of it. MOST OF THEM ARE NOT!
