...different, not better…having been a combat vet in the Nam…having that protective instinct regarding the female of our species…I would not want women in direct combat roles for many reasons…would cause undue pressures…other than just watching one’s back and mine theirs. Just the possibility of a female being captured or killed by the enemy is not very appealing; when the idea of being captured or killed by the enemy for anyone isn’t desirable, it becomes 1000x more undesirable for women. Having said that…I am sure that, if require to do so, some women are very capable and if needed I am sure many would volunteer for combat; but why should they when they do not have too? Just to be politically correct…has never and will never, win wars.
