sorry little timmy and little nancy. your mom got blown up and your dad got shot by terrorists with weapons they procured from us 40 years ago! don't worry, we'll give you some SSRI's and anti-depressants to help with deal with your loss! you want to work for the DHS?
will be devastating for some kids to have both parents gone away or killed.
The feminists pushing this are forgetting basic biology. The main reason women are excluded from infantry is simply hygiene. Have you ever gone 90 days without a bath? The best you get is a "bird bath" with a baby wipe. Female biology simply doesn't allow for this. It's not sexist, it's plain common sense. Forget about humping 90lbs of battle rattle over 18 miles a day, our bodies are different, hence certain jobs have to be gender specific.
But by all means....let them go get the crotch rot because they want to show they're equal.

First Female F-14 Fighter Pilot Reacts to Pentagon Lifting Combat Ban
From this perspective it kind of does suck to work hard at a career and be denied advancement because of artificial barriers even though you're already doing the required tasks.(Memphis) – Carey Lohrenz was one of the first female fighter pilots to fly F-14s in the U.S. Navy.
“So I was on the front and from that you have to be able to be fearless about things,” she said.
Lohrenz said women have been fearless in the air and on the ground for years.
“Like it or not, the reality of it is women have been on the ground and in combat they just haven’t been getting the on paper credit for it and haven’t been promoted,” she said.
Lohrenz said 250,000 women have served in Iraq and Afghanistan. More than 800 women were wounded and at least 130 have died.
But many of those servicewomen were serving under a temporary billet, which means while they were fighting on the ground they didn’t get the credit on paper.
“So you have women that are out there doing the job serving professionally, but when it comes time to be promoted into those leadership positions they’re out of the running for it because they don’t have the technical designation.”
Back in November, four servicewomen along with the American Civil Liberties Union sued the Pentagon over the combat exclusion policy.
Now that policy will be lifted opening front-line positions to women.
“I think its fantastic and I think it’s a long time coming,” she said. “We’ve set aside this whole pool of very capable candidates, but because they showed up as women we weren’t able to promote them to the leadership positions where we need them to be leading.”
Most of the 200,000 jobs that will open to woman are primarily in the army and marines. The military will have until May to draw up a plan for opening all units to women and until the end of 2015 to actually implement it.
The way I see it, if you call yourself a man, and you know they're sending women into combat, then your choices are either to sign up and go yourself, or demand that they bring the troops home.
I’m not a libertarian. I’m not advocating everyone run around with no clothes on and smoke pot.
Is it not interesting how the envelope of war is being ever broadened, rather than narrowed? Interesting how the UN mandates for everything BUT this is made a big noise.
This is one of the last frontiers of warfare to be breached. Perhaps the inclusion of infants may remain... perhaps.
One by one the taboos fall. In principle I have no problem with that, but not all taboos are wrong. Mark my words that the day may well come when the age of consent will be lowered and before you know it, NAMBLA will have standing in this nation. This is the direction in which things are heading, so why not go all the way?

How about that 'War On Women'?
