Maybe they give women soldiers a deliberate dose of clap before combat so if they get captured they can pass it on. I'm sure these women are fully aware of what awaits them if captured.

Another f*ckwit feminist..
I see they crawl out from their caves and get "brave" when I'm gone.

HOW CAN WOMEN BE JUST AS GOOD AS MEN IN "COMBAT ROLES" WHEN THEY ARE NATURALLY WEAKER, SLOWER AND DUMBER?!

BAN FEMALES FROM THE MILITARY! THEY ARE A JOKE! If they had no vag+tits, the military would LOL at the idea of a female soldier.

MEN > women

Is it usual for Captain to also be the comms officer? Or is it because the comms pack weighs 20 kg less than a loaded backpack.

The standards for women have been lowered in one US division most women couldn't throw a grenade far enough o avoid blowing themselves up.

That being said war is more technological now and we can just operate a plane from afar so..... Who knows?

we're not going to war are we?

soldier or not when my country is attacked i'll protect it no matter what

but if it is us who attack another country for no good reason then why should we waste money and soldiers for that?

I don't even know what they're fighting for in Afghanistan, Im not even sure there's weapon of mass destruction in Iraq. All those thousands of brave soldiers, someones' sons and daughters, died for NOTHING...!

The women of the United States are nothing but brood sows, having sons to be put into the army and made into fertilizer.
