COMBAT WOMEN…DUMBEST DEM IDEA YET?

WASHINGTON — A military advisory commission is recommending that the Pentagon do away with a policy that bans women from serving in combat units, breathing new life into a long-simmering debate.
Though thousands of women have been involved in the fights in Iraq and Afghanistan, they have done so while serving in combat support roles — as medics, logistics officers and so on — because defense policy prohibits women from being assigned to any unit smaller than a brigade whose primary mission is direct combat on the ground. On Friday, a special panel was meeting to polish the final draft of a report that recommends the policy be eliminated “to create a level playing field for all qualified service members.”
If it were approved by the Defense Department, it would be yet another sizeable social change in a force that in the last year has seen policy changes to allow gays and lesbians to serve openly for the first time in the military and to allow Navy women to serve on submarines for the first time.
The newest move is being recommended by the Military Leadership Diversity Commission, established by Congress two years ago, and expected to send its report to Congress and President Barack Obama in the spring. The Army is doing its own internal study of the question as well. ***
The unhappy angry insatiable liberal democrat (aka secular socialist) marches on with the incredibly dumb idea that our American military can be improved by allowing women in combat (lol).
Have libs never seen the actual WW2 film clips?
Some actual Viet war film clips?
The current physical fitness standard differences in our branches of the service?
The natural male tendency to protect the (much physically inferior) female?
Can some democrat simply list the exact way or two the American combat forces will be MORE EFFECTIVE by having much shorter soldiers with half the strength and 10x the hormonal issues? Did I mention combat may last more than a couple hours or days? Did I mention the enemy can do less than just kill captured soldiers? Did I mention being wounded and left to die because the “she soldier” lacks the strength to pull you to a safer area? Guess not.
List them, we are all waiting for some REASON to replace the OzLand emotional appeals that liberals use to sell their silly baloney. Want a video of combat training with padded poles or whatever…male versus female (IF they exist)?
Would that give you a real combat effectiveness clue?
