Comment by Anonymous on Obama’s dangerous drive to make US combat troops c...
What is bemusing is the arrogance of those who deem themselves so
superior to the rest of society and to every one who came before them.
After all, what could some one who lived 300 years ago, know that is
would the bother to read? Could it be, that those who lived way back
when, did in fact know what they were talking about? To use the line
from the Fall Out games; War, war never changes. Troops are still needed
to take ground, and then to hold it. The basics are still the same.
Soldiers still need a weapon (s), a uniform/body armor, a pack to carry
things in. A woman can squeeze the trigger on a sniper rifle just as
well as a man can. But when it comes to humping a ruck (with above
mentioned 100 pounds of gear) in the field, where your objective is 20
klicks away, a woman just can't do it as well as a guy. This current
cult of making any thing and every thing gender-blind is more than
misguided, it is insane.
Take another look at the female troops in the
above photo; what is going to be the likely outcome should the fighting
goes from shooting to hand-to-hand combat? They should also get in touch
with reality that if captured by the enemy, they WILL BE raped.
Military service is hard on the body. If you have any doubts, just visit
an VA hospital and take a good hard look at all the men of have
premature worn out bodies. Those gals above are going to have, foot
problems, bad knees, bad backs. joint pains, hearing loss, likely to
have reproductive problems. emotional problems, and cancer from being
exposed to toxic chemicals. Meanwhile, back at the home front, their own
politicians will consider them to expendable when they are no longer
useful to the moneyed interests that sent them into harms way.
see it, the Marine Corp just wasted $36 million on a study that if they
had studied military history and their own history, they would have
known that putting women into traditional male only combat roles is an
insane idea. If a collage age gal can not handle and must be protected
from a guy making a "sexist" comment, then what the hell is she going to
do, when some guy is trying to kill her? Come back whining that her
leaders lied to her? Well, no s--t Sherlock!
