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.
