Once again the prog-libs try to control the debate by changing the language.
The issue is NOT women "in combat." Women have been "in combat" ever since the first cavemen raped and pillaged their neighbors. This is self-evident and an historical circumstance that is being seized upon as a rationalization for change.
The issue IS women in military units that are organized, trained and equipped for a doctrinal mission of direct combat - closing with and destroying the enemy's forces by killing or capturing those forces and destroying their means of resistance.
The latter is NOT the same as the former. There is a difference between being a truck driver in a convoy that has been attacked and an infantryman closing with the enemy.
