You are forgetting an important fact aren't you? Women have been in the middle-east for years. They are even members of in-the-field US Special Forces units.
June 2003, General Martin Dempsey gets on board an armoured vehicle to go out on the streets of Baghdad to inspect how bad the war was there. They had been particularly having problems with snipers, grenade attacks, and roadside bombs. He took a second to introduce himself to the crew of the vehicle.
"I slapped the turret gunner on the leg and I (General Dempsey) said,'Who are you?'"
And the soldier leaned down and said, "I'm Amanda."
True story.
So, EFFING WHAT. Adam Lanza, the school shooter, could have been standing at that post, and the general wouldn't have had a CLUE. I'm surprised that the general wasn't beaten down for slapping a FEMALE soldier's leg.

I truly believe you guys are afraid of women gaining real equality. I actually do believe that. You are scared to death of women no longer serving men.
Conservatives seem far too much to be of the mentality where they 'have to have' someone to feel superior to. I guess to make them feel better about themselves and to counter their shortcomings in life. First it was blacks, but slavery became outlawed. So that only left women for them to think should serve them and they could feel were less than them.
Women were even denied the right to vote until fifty years 'after' blacks were given the right. And even today Republicans block, and in one state repealed, fair pay laws for women.
This opposition to women in combat is just another of their attempts to deny and refuse equality. Because it's another step to having society give true equality to everyone. In other words ..... women will be equal and not being the 'little lady' which serves them like property.
To Conservatives ..... fix you own dang dinner. You can learn how to cook.
Get a testosterone injection, and a REAL EDUCATION involving this country's military history.

I'm so SICK AND TIRED of hearing that WOMEN are AS GOOD, or BETTER, than men, when it has been logically and rationally PROVEN that it is NOT THE CASE, regarding SERIOUS COMBAT, especially the FACE TO FACE COMBAT.

Remember when the female police officer of Maplewood failed to provide backup for a male co-worker the male officer was shot dead.

That IS the risk you run when using anyone but the BEST in combat.

NOT just someone who passes a new lower minimum set of tests allowing the weaker to get a job.

Reminds me of the new minimum standard for the pull of a bow used in archery hunting of 30 pounds. NO WAY a 30 pound pull bow will pack the needed punch to kill deer.

you guys do not get it.

this one has a map of where not countries of where they do they allow women into the military. but other countries that have women on the front lines actually in combat. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/worldview... one of several questions it raised was: Is that unusual? Do a lot of countries allow women to serve in combat? The answer is that many Western, developed countries have women on their front-line forces.
.
http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2013/... There are roughly a dozen nations that have opened "close combat roles" to women. Those roles are defined by a 2010 British Ministry of Defense (MOD) study as those that include "engaging an enemy on the ground ... while being exposed to hostile fire and a high probability of physical contact with the hostile forces personnel."

The Soviets were the major exception to this wariness towards women in combat roles. Campbell estimates that around 400,000 women were the Red Army's front-line duty units during World War II. Reina Pennington's essay “Offensive Women: Women in Combat in the Red Army in the Second World War” examines in detail Soviet women's fulfillment of combat roles. In addition to serving as medical personnel, women in the Red Army also made parachute drops behind enemy lines, engaged in air defense, operated machine guns, and acted as snipers (Lyudmila Pavlichenko killed over three hundred Germans during the war).

So the answer to my question is no. Your just another squeaky voice spewing crap with no first hand knowledge of what it really would take.

Before you respond, please tell me you have gone through some levels of basic training. Or you have served in or with a combat unit. If not, you nothing more than another slewsie, spitting in the wind!
I like teabagger "logic"... you pretend to ignore it's military women)a tougher type), forget you're a senile, old coot, and pretend the other writer NEEDS to be one of these women, to qualify for freedom of speech ??? Great "rules" you made, just like voter ID, they'll really work, right ?? LMAOROTFU!

About a month ago a woman with a young daughter in her car stopped on the I94 bridge over Lake Saint Croix got out of her car and jumped to her death.

I will NOT be jumping off a bridge just because she did.

BTW, women CAN function in any position but what is the result of their "functioning". RIP Maplewood officer, your female backup officer should have done better.

Here's something a lot newer. 3 days ago a cop in Las Vegas shot his wife and 5 year old kid to death, set the house on fire, then blew his brains out.

I say let women into combat if they meet the training and requirements. This ain't the redneck 1940s.

You don't wanna face screwups are by anybody. If you're afraid women will show their merit, too bad. They're going into combat whether you and other rednecks like it or not. Now get off computer and go abuse your wife and daughters some more.

Evolution is taking over, women are becoming men: Better Left Said: Woman Grows Penis

"We can not say right now if she has really undergone a sudden gender change," said a township official who declined to be named, adding that Than Sein's birth certificate shows that he was born a girl.

"It can be confirmed when we receive the report from the health ministry, although some medical checkups have shown her to be a true man," he added.

As soon as I received your $500, I sent you that jar of my seed that you asked for. I'm glad you wanted to see what the seed of a real man looked like. Enjoy!

What's the connection between women in combat and a murder in Vegas?

This happened in Wisconsin with knives:
