God forbid we ever find ourselves in an old style war of attrition like WW I. Can you imagine the drama adding women into the front lines of a bunch of young sex starved men is going to cause, not to mention all the male soldiers more worried more about keeping the “girls” safe than fighting the enemy. I guess in the age of Obama we just aren't suppose to ask such old fashion sexist questions....

Bingo. Women and men together on the front lines means front-line romances. And then the safety of your lady becomes more important than the objective of the unit.
And I don’t mean to be crude but women’s monthly cycles also impede their ability to be completely effective, IMHO.

More along the lines of wasting our defensive resources. Yes, women can be very capable of defense if needs be. Wasting them out on the frontlines first isn’t exactly the best idea.
