Women in Combat

http://www.military.com/daily-news/2015/04/05/surveys-special-operations-troops-doubt-women-can-do-the-job.html?comp=1198882887570&rank=2 

Surveys show that American special operations troops doubt that women can do the job as well as men can.  They are also concerned that the standards will be lowered so that women can qualify for the job.  The military already uses a multi-tiered physical fitness standard with lower standards for women and older soldiers.

Of course they will lower standards.  Gays serving openly in the military and women in combat has nothing to do with combat effectiveness.  It has to do with political correctness.  It has to do with getting women and gays into positions of power that they have been denied.  No general ever said we would have won a particular battle if only we had more women or homosexuals in our units.

I have seen them pass women who were not qualified only because they were women.  They will officially or unofficially lower the standards until they get the number of women they want in these units no matter what the cost in readiness; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
