Other countries have had women in combat positions for some time and we have had
them in combat whether they were officially designated as being in combat or
not. We've already had women injured and killed, so that won't be
anything new. I believe women should have to meet the same physical
requirements as men for any position, which will knock women out of some
positions just because of a lack of strength, but if they can physically do the
job, no problem (same as in other countries such as Israel, etc.)
We need to institute the draft as well without any exceptions. I think the
public would be much more careful than we have been that way.
The second we make a mandatory draft of 2 years for every citizen like in other
countries....more people will care about the lives of our troops.
The conscript military had to be geared to the lowest intelligence as there were
those who were not able to complete an education. We have a fine professional
military, more educated, more capable and more disciplined.....and you want to
bring back the draft? Yeah, OK sure. NOT!!! You bring back the malcontents,
the criminals, the troops incapable of doing anything but menial details who
then require more soldiers to watch them,.....NO! Not my Army! It is because
we have a professional military that operations are so quickly and competently
executed. Draft? No thanks. It's volunteer for a reason.
Panetta will be responsible for any men killed because of PC-ness. And I expect
the pressure will be on to make allowances in the interest of getting the
you could do selective service which a great thing not all should be in the
milatary. in the civil war the union did better after slaves got freeded because
better people joined the army, people with principles. they would die for
freedom. the north started winning more battles at this point on because they
where fighting for a real goal of no more slavery.
