Elite combat troops are physically akin to professional athletes. If there are women out there that can successfully out run an NFL Defense and stand up to the physical pounding we would already have them. Professional sports teams care about winning above anything else so if these women are out there with these physical abilities how come they have yet to emerge? Nobody with a modicum of common sense believes the military will not be forced to lower standards to a make this happen. We are playing Russian roulette with national security. Sadly it will take a huge disaster to change the course of this ill-advised policy.
