Another step toward equality.

If women can do the job there is no reason to ban them from combat.

I look at it this. Equal opportunity.

Here is the issue I have though. These little chicken hawks, these girlie men, the only way to put it, these pussies like Obama, Cameron, Panetta, Clinton, Bush, McLame, Graham, Sarkozy, Merchle, Romney, etc.....

You guys want to go to war so bad. Then lead it. Be like Alexander the Great, Ghengis Khan, Napoleon, etc... Get out there and lead it.

Stop being a bitch behind a desk telling other people what they have to do. You want to pick a fight, then go fight it. You want Assad out, then grab a gun, go over there and do it. Stop being a little bitch and having someone else do your dirty work.

Our men are taught to protect our women. I hate to be the one to tell our alternative livers, but men and women are different. How do you think men will react when our women are tortured. Obama wants to weaken the military, and disarm civilians. Isn't it time to ask ourselves why?

But if they can't do the job then that is ok right, women want to be treated the same until they don't. If they are going to be treated the same and the only positions available to them are in combat units they that is where they go like it or not.

And by definition there is no reason to exclude them from the draft. Start registering women for the draft NOW, just as young men are required to do. We'll see whether women really want to be all THAT equal.

We'd have no more wars if the President and members of Congress were required to lead the battle.

What's sick is you think it's acceptable for our MEN to be tortured?

There aren't a whole lot of showers on the front lines, and a latrine is a hole dug in the ground.

If that's your biggest concern, I suggest you stay in the rear with the gear.

If they can meet the qualifications then they will go, like it or not. Just like men.
