Poll: Americans approve of drafting women for combat


But expert's warning? Females 'do not have an equal opportunity to survive' 

A new poll reveals that there is widespread support among Americans for women to be included if the U.S. military would resume a draft.

The poll done by and Mason-Dixon Polling and Research said 59 percent of Americans “believe women should be included in a draft, compared to only 38 percent who think they should not.”

However, an expert on the U.S. military and the issues it is facing said there are concerns with such an idea, especially since the military just announced a strategy to “allow” women into combat.

“The poll uses the phrase ‘participating in combat,’ as if that experience is no more difficult than ‘participating’ in a social event,” warned Elaine Donnelly, of the Center for Military Readiness.

Her group is an independent and nonpartisan public policy group that promotes high standards and sound priorities for making military personnel policies. It takes the lead in defending elements of military culture that are essential for morale and readiness.

“The word ‘included’ also suggests a voluntary option, instead of a mandatory order,” she said.

  1. An equal # of women need to be maimed, disfigured and killed in combat period. I am not for it but when the lib-tards see it they will be appalled. I am tired of hearing that men/women are equal in all aspects.

    1. Absolutely and all the races aren't equal also. Some excel in some endeavors while others do not, but not to a brain dead liberal.
