No Women in Combat

No one wants war. No one wants a draft. But if we put women in combat units then when we need to draft soldiers, we will have to draft women. Women are only exempted from the draft because they are not used in combat units and therefore are not needed in as great a number as men are needed.

The military establishment is carrying out the orders of the Commander in Chief who has said we will have women in combat. Not one of those generals has said this will increase our combat effectiveness. There is much evidence to the contrary.

The military is not about equal opportunity, it's about keeping us free and destroying our enemies. The vast majority of women are too small and too physically weak to attend to combat duties, that's why no other nation has ever put women in combat in regular military units. Resistance fighters are not regular military units and if their homeland is occupied they certainly are living under an extra ordinary circumstance. In that instance putting women in combat could be justified because the only alternative is to live under an oppressive occupation, and freedom is worth fighting for when necessary.  I stand by my statement that men who support putting women in combat are cowards and are hiding behind women's skirts.  Women should only serve in combat in the most dire emergency, and we are not in a dire emergency; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
