    Unfortunately, in the name of equality we will continue to send them, and eventually lower standards so that they pass.

    Sorry ladies, if your body can't handle the abuse, then you wouldn't be able to handle the abuse in the field. If you're not good enough to do the job, the job won't lower itself for you. If your job is to haul 100 pound sacks, the sacks aren't going to magically become 75 pound sacks just because you're a women. Either you can do it, or you can't. If you can do it, awesome, if you can't, you need to find something else to do.

    Women have no place in Combat Arms or cockpits.

    I know several **** hot female combat pilots, in both fixed wing fighters, CAS, and rotary wing gunships. As well as have had the distinct honor of going into combat with some great utility rotor wing female pilots.

    I don't think they belong in the inf. but they can absolutely hack it behind a stick.

    "2" is hardly a valid statistical sampling to draw conclusions from.

    I would also point out that the Israelis have had good success using female combat troops, to include a number of women in the Mossad's dreaded Kidon assassination and counter-terrorism detachments. Then, of course, there were the Russian female sniper and infiltration units in WWII.

    Women may not have the upper body strength that most men have, and they may need some different physical standards as a result, but by-and-large the argument that women can't "cut it" in combat has been proven to be a myth so many times as to constitute an absurdity as an argument.

    No one is saying women are incapable of killing.

    They're saying they're unfit for the infantry. A point that has been proven in blood again and again.

    A Russian sniper in WW II, is hardly a valid comparison to an infantryman today.

    How so? I guarantee that Russian snipers on the Eastern Front had to deal on a daily basis with conditions and risks that would give even the toughest modern Ranger or Marine pause.

    They had to mule their own weapons and combat packs through deadly cold and extreme terrain, live on rations that would best be described as laughable and evade, stalk, kill and outsmart some of the best trained male infantry soldiers of the day while doing so.

    And they were feared like angels of death by the Nazis they hunted.

    And of course the IDF has been using females in their military, to include combat infantry units, for decades with great success.

    Was that a cleverly disguised joke about how bad women drivers are?

    Show me the Israeli women who have actively participated in offensive combat operations. They are mostly on passive duty type positions like security and such.

    Navy officer Lt. Kara Hultgren was rushed into the seat of a Tomcat to satifsy feminist ideological dictates and she lost her life. This abuse of legitimate womens' desire to contribute on par with men will be repeated with every Radical Left government we elect.

    And if Romney had been elected, he'd fix it too.

    If a person, man or woman, can't meet the physical requirements, they can't meet the physical requirements.
