Women drafted for combat?

I'm all for equal rights but I can't see my daughter becoming a very effective weapon of war. I'm not even opposed to women being drafted but for combat? Women have won an equality battle that I don't think the majority would agree.

Don't see it being very effective!! Not that they can't do the job, but it is the restrictions associated with the jobs, carrying of heavy weapons, people...that will plague the service!! I'm all for them fighting if they choose, but they will be limited in the type of combat positions they will be able to fill.

It is not always about "brawn"; also about "brains".
Seems like everytime a new idea is presented, people go into overtime putting forth why "it will not work", NEGATIVE.
Why not turn it around and see the good points and move forward with that? Everyone will benefit from that!

It's a great way to eliminate the draft.

And I agree with you! I am not against it, I am just saying that certain combat line will have to be adjusted to support the mission of women in a combat environment. Semper Fi

When a 220 lb. man gets wounded on the battle field and needs his partner to drag him out of harms way i guess a woman will use her mind to do this????A person should only do what he or she qualifies to do!!Things like affimative action is totally stupid.A person should be judged by his or her qualifications and abilities,nothing more or nothing less!!!

Perfectly stated!!! That was my whole point. When thy are transitioned into a combat line the military will have to restructure the military occupation specialty for women. I do not see it strengthening anything. I am surely NOT saying that all women can't perform the duties, I am saying not all can. Just as not all men can, and when this happens, men also are realigned into an MOS which suits them. OR they get the hell out of the service!
