Our male and female troops are confronting an enemy that still lives in a fourteenth century culture. The enemy would benefit greatly by the capture of our female troops. The unspeakable horrors these women would have to endure would do tremendous damage to the morale of our forces. Are these women ready and willing to take the inevitable rape and torture? How will our male our troops react when it happens? Women may be seeking "equal opportunity". Just know that the enemy will not treat a female captive "equally".
You are absolutely right.

Equality to the women is what they think...... A MARINE study as of recent showed that women couldn't even handle the current roles of fighting they were assigned to and not able to hold up to the conditions, stress, and such. The only thing that is going to be EQUAL is the increased number of sexual assaults and deaths on the front lines.....Not sure about you but I personally wouldn't want to go into the hot zones of the front lines with a partner with me that can't stand up to the conditions, stress, and overall burden of being in the hot seat. I think a lot of women's rights is okay, but this one isn't.........This is one way to thin out the human race which is osama's plan from the beginning!
