So now part of obama's new far left agenda he says women will now be allowed into combat jobs on the military.
The best part is women can still choose whether they want to or not. I say if a woman joins she goes and does what the Army wants her to, just like if she was a male. They don't get a >choice<, why should a woman joining the Army get that choice.
Fair is fair and isn't that what this is all about?

OK ladies, I can't do things like have children like you do. There are things you cannot do as well as men, fight with heavy automatic weapons. No offence but accept our few differences. When I delivered Pizza from a Pizza joint on Victory drive, I went on base many times. One night some GI's wanted a ride back to town after I had delivered some pizza's to one of their dorms. I overheard them talking about completing jump class. They were joking that about 60% of the men passed but none of the women could made it. OK ladies so you can't fight in a war like men but maybe like Israeli women you could work as a support like nursing, cooking and carrying ammo to the front where men are doing the fighting, fair enough?

I realize its your nature to claim its Obama`s agenda, but the fact is women have been serving on the front lines and with combat units even before Bush and Cheney decided to fight two wars on a credit card.

Although it is fairly rare, women are attached to front line combat units in various roles and they are used a lot when kicking doors down and dealing with Host Country women and children. The biggest difference "I would say" is they dont get the pay, awards, or the promotions the men may recieve.

Try to keep in mind that they will be required to pass the same requirements the men have to pass. Having been to both Iraq and Afghanistan, I`ve seen very few jobs that women could`nt do just as well as a man. Israel has been doing this for many years.

My biggest questions on the subject would be...In the event we had to go back to the draft...Will this include women? And most important... Does America have the stomach to watch thier mothers and daughters being wounded, killed, raped or tortured on the 6-PM news!

This is all BS, Obama is so fawking stupid, repealing the gay military BS and worrying about gay marriage. He wants gun control now and about to start on immigration. Now out of the blue he wants women in combat.
Will someone tell that bozo to maybe take a glance at unemployment and the fawkng economy for a change.

The best part of being an Independent voter is that you are not afraid of being" Excommunicated " from the party for speaking your mind. I could never be a democrat because I don't believe in putting women on the frontline unless our country is being attacked directly which has'nt happened since World War 11. I don't believe in gun control, whch includes assault weapons. Homosexuals can do what they want but our government should'nt sanction their marriages or allow them to adopt children. Women can have all the children they want but don't expect the rest of us(Government) to pay for it. Republicans are so far off in other areas. So until Mr. BALANCE comes along I will take pot shots at both of them. The obsession in the minds of republicans to litterly worship the wealthy will probably keep me voting democrat or not vote at all in the future.

Damn Sarge...Sounds like you got a few problems with Homo`s in your unit. If they are trying to get you to marry them just go to S-Major and he will help you file a complaint. I`m sorry! I did`nt realize it had gotten that bad. Dont worry...If the gays run you out of the military you can always go to work in law enforcement and help get all those guns off the streets!

Don't have a problem with gays sir, if you read my post why is all this so important now? Why not address the real problems in America.
Oh, and by the way. They won't be getting guns off the streets, they will be getting them out of people's homes.
Think about it.

You bring up an excellent point.
Why are female troops given the opportunity to choose to participate in combat roles and not the males?
Personally I do not have a problem with women in any military role that a man does but the standards should remain the same and no special considerations should be made either.
If Any male joins the Army and gets assigned to infantry without a choice, so should any female also.

Well then...I`m sorry for jumping to conclusions TOP. Sounded to me like you were being over-run by Homo`s and maybe a little afraid of getting A$$ Raped in the shower or something. Never the less... You sound as if your afraid to admit that a woman can probably do your job. Hell Man! You could train a monkey to do the jobs most any of us do. Just look at the space program for example. They had stinkin monkeys in rocket ships orbiting the earth as far back as the 50`s and 60`s. Have you ever orbited the earth in a rocket ship. Not a chance! So... With the proper training, A Stinking Monkey can do a job you will never be able to do.

From what we see in the media it looks like you have a bigger problem with your Married Commanding Generals keeping thier peckers in thier pants than you do with the Homo`s.

And by-tha-way...It was recommended to Obama by all of your Joint Chiefs of Staff as well as approved by all,(ALL) of your Joint Chiefs of Staff! Each and every one of your most senior officers. Maybe you should shoot them an e-mail and let them know how upset you are? Even ole John McCain approves of it.

To weaken men make women and gays totally equal. Make men power of no consequence. Then men are cuckold in society. Easy to control. Especially White ones.
Wow...Thats the kind of garbage the Taliban teach thier young men. Although I would say that most American males have been made uncomfortable by a female at one time or another... It must be a terrible way to go through life scared of women and gays! Sounds a little weak to me! Thank God we still got men like you and ole General Betray-us who caint be controled by a woman.

They should make DIVISIONS of female SOLDIERS all syncronized with their monthly cycles so the WEEK before their periods THEY can BE UNLEASHED on the ENEMIES of AMERICA.
They will eventually have to convene a NEW Geneva Convention to BAN this because it would be DEVASTATING and CRUEL to our ENEMIES!

There are just a few things in life that females are not capable in being even with men. Jumping with a 85 pound load at jump school is just to much for a woman.

Unfortunaley over the past 63 years of my life I have seen women becoming less feminen, contentius, tempromental and believing they can do anything a man can. I feel for all those married men out there having to deal with bull-headed women. I got married one time for 8 years and would'nt recommend it to any man. That's been 24 years ago since my divorce which I will take 50% of the blame for. Now you go to clubs and see women sitting in one table and only men sitting at another table. They cannot fight like a man nor do heavy lifting like men. Many of our women in theUSA have been influenced by many 20,30 40 year old sluts behaving badly on TV. But send their stubburn azzes out there into a hot fire zone and learn the hard way. It's much more pleasant and pieceful around my place with just ME GOD and a friendly dog.
