Women are barred by Congress from participating in frontline combat. What Panetta says meaning nothing without congressional approval. The dykes will not win this one.
“What Panetta says meaning nothing without congressional approval. The dykes will not win this one.”
Let them win it; if they receive preferential treatment for jobs, promotions, college seats, etc., let them die for it. I assure you none of my sons will die for their freakshow utopia; like me they’ll just get the bill.
Congress is irrelevant and has been for a while now.
FReepers, if you thought gun control is important, this is every bit as critical since it directly impacts the combat effectiveness of our military. This is an attempt to further weaken America. Here is what I wrote my Congressional reps and I encourage everyone to contact their reps and get this stopped:
“I just read on Fox News that Leon Panetta is set to lift the restriction on women in combat. Speaking as a former Captain in the U.S. Army Reserves (Infantry), I can’t begin to tell you how wrong-headed this idea is and the harm it will cause to the combat effectiveness of our military.
In every military where this has been tried, combat effectiveness in the heat of battle has been negatively affected when women are wounded in combat, disproportionately distracting fighting forces who are instinctively more protective of their female comrades.
Israel has been the latest country to try this and it failed. I encourage you to exercise whatever power you have left to stop this dead in its tracks.
