Women In Combat
Women In Combat
The USA is
currently about to remove a restriction that keeps women from the front lines
in combat situations.This is somewhat
controversial, and a ripe topic for:
CRANKY OPINION SATURDAY
correct opinion is of course that women are every bit as capable as men in
combat situations.We all know that most
women are unemotional, strong both physically and mentally.I hardly know any women who could not handle
themselves and be victorious versus any man in combat.Most women also are knowledgeable with guns
and are expert markswomen (marksperson?).Clearly carrying a forty pound backpack all day long in boiling hot or
freezing weather would not slow any woman down.
the above is unadulterated bull shit.
If it makes
you feel good ladies then go ahead and believe it, but I am 67 years old and I
am willing to bet that I could beat the snot out of 90% of anyone without a
penis.Sorry, but you cannot bend facts
just to make people feel good.
clearly women who are capable of fighting on the front lines both physically and
mentally.If these women choose to
volunteer for combat should they be allowed to fight with the men?I guess, but I’m not sure that men all
volunteer for combat, and I’m not sure I would want women to be forced onto the
front lines.If they are to be treated
as equals, that would be the case.
women have competed professionally with men in golf; none has ever won a
tournament.No women has ever competed
professionally with men in Football.No
woman has ever competed professionally with men in baseball or basketball.Billy Jean King once beat an old man in
tennis and it was acclaimed as a major breakthrough.If a woman comes along who could throw a pass
60 yards and win the Super Bowl she would get a contract.If a woman could hit a baseball 450 feet and
bat 300 the Yankees would sign her. There are no rules against women competing against men in professional sports, it just hasn't happened. Is competing with men in combat any different?
we declare war against another country both sides could agree on a separate
female army which would only fight against the other’s female army.This might make things fair, but I have my
doubts such an agreement could be accomplished.
I suppose there shouldn’t
be a rule against women in combat, but allowing women on the front lines should
only be for extraordinary situations and not be the norm.
We used to
have a draft where any man 18 or older could be forced into service and be on
the combat line in time of war.We no
longer have a draft, but it could be reinstated if needed.If you are in favor of allowing women in
combat, ask yourself this all you moms and dads out there:
Would you be
in favor of a country that would draft and sent your 18 year old daughter into
