In vietnam the most wellknown and dangerous enemy sniper was a viet cong woman. She was good enough the US army assigned a team of rangers to track her down and kill her. It took them a while to find her and do it. The nva used women soldiers and if you remember it was the only war we lost.

just because we can bear children. do not count us out.
.
women when needed can be just as fierce if not more so than guys.
.
many groups have recognized what women can do. which is why in ancient times one group had Kunoichi working for them. be they spies or other areas.
.
Kunoichi translates into "Deadly Flower". women trained as such were and are capable of killing.
.
for those who argue against women in the front lines. remember your grandfathers also saying the same thing about women being nurses, workers on assembly lines, secretaries, etc....

It depends upon how someone was raised. Someone taught they cannot do anything and they cannot, or at least believe they cannot which usually results in failure. But that is a fading thing. Something rapidly becoming a thing of the past, something only taught to daughters by overly-religious people, sexist bigots, and right-wing conservatives.
Now days it's more and more that it's women who are proving themselves in hazardous situations, not men.
An example which you can check out yourself. Have you ever seen a show called 'What Would You Do'? They would create situations and video how unsuspecting bystanders would react in them. One thing they discovered which was unexpected. They even commented upon it on several of the shows. What they found was the riskier and more dangerous the situation it was far more often women, not men, which reacted and did an in-your-face with the bad guy.
Another change which has come with teaching equality rather than outdated sexism and double-standards ..... more of us, women, are earning college degrees, particularly doctorates, than men, more of us finish college than men (less of us wash out than men), and we are making higher GPAs (grade point averages) than men.
American women even outdid American men in the 2012 Olympics. We're also now a higher percentage of the workforce.
To sum it up ..... stronger doesn't mean better.
Btw, since mass shooters are on the news so much lately. Did you know the only mass shooter killed by a citizen was shot and killed by a woman?
I clearly recall my first day in the Army's Airborne Training School.... There was a lot of shouting by the training cadre, a lot of pushups, etc. After about the first 2 hours, one instructor asked if anyone wanted to quit (the school was VOLUNTARY). One guy raised his hand, pronto. He was an OFFICER, supposedly one of those "intelligent" soldiers. All I could do was shake my head and laugh. So much for equating education with mental toughness.

Is a woman man enough to take Muslim scalps? I don't think so. They will only coddle the enemy, like they do the gays and the Jiggers.

A Shemale like you could just spread your legs on the battlefield. Give the Muslims a stinky cave to hide out in.

Funny there was a woman on National TV this morning who said:

"I as a woman could not do the job in combat". She went on to say she let her male coworkers down even thou she thought she was up to the demands of combat she wasn't.

To think in time of war you could draft women and men and press them into training and combat is just silly.

The combat sections of the military are NOT civil places with a place for the weaker sex, Thye have NO BUSINESS in a combat role. Ya they can work in some narrow nitch MOSes but what they contribute will always be overshadowed by the negatives caused by the presence of females in the barraks or fox holes, new meaning for the term.

Oh yes there are women who would step up in the service to "service" every man interested and that would be but ONE problem with having the weaker sex in military combat.

Anyone proposes such foolishness has clearly NEVER fought in close ground combat.

You could do Combat! You have the "suitabilities".
As a World Class Stock Trader on Topix 16/7 your talents are readily apparent to all!
Isn't is great how con/cant accuse people of posting under multiple monikers, while never providing a lick of proof to that effect. And how hypocritical it is, to do so in the first place.
