  • Women in the military

    I was wondering what everyone's take on this is. I never really cared/thought about it, but I am watching Oprah (shut up, I'm bored) and they have Iraqi vets on. Most of the guys are basically okay emotianally, but this one chick is really messed up. Just coincidence, or a result of men being more culturally engineered to handle the harshness of war?

    Thoughts.

          Keep them in the supply corp where they belong.

          Thank God I missed all this nonsense. The Waves used to be in areas where they belonged, on shore and DEFINITELY contributing.

          It's so stupid to have them onboard and in (in the other forces) in action. It's just, stupid.

          I don't care what anyone else thinks, find me some guy who wants a girl covering his back?

          I don't think so.

            I was in the middle of posting the exact same thing.

            Nothing wrong with them in the military, but I dare you to find a soul in the armed services who wants a woman out there with them in battle conditions.

            I'm not naive or unsympathetic to women; far from it. But this is a life-and-death matter.

              They should be allowed to be in the military, but they should have to meet the same qualifications as men. Walter Williams had some great examples of women getting positions based on lower standards, which eventually led to millions and millions of dollars of destroyed equipment, namely jets.
              Asked what he would do differently in Iraq, Kerry said, "Right now, what I would do differently is, I mean, look, I'm not the president, and I didn't create this mess so I don't want to acknowledge a mistake that I haven't made."

                Women have served in combat situations in the Israeli military for many years without many of the problems that are suggested. They engage in some serious shit, and problems such as fraternization, rape, lacking confidence in their ability to hold up or do their job have not been borne out. In a word, they kick some serious ass.

                Besides, Meg Ryan did a credible job under duress, while Matt Damon and Lou Diamond -Phillips were wetting their pants.

                  Check out the amount of pregnant Waves there have been since they've been allowed onboard American Navy ships.

                  Now, if the goal is to give us swabbies some R&R at sea, fine. But the problem is that they take the place of a man who can save your life.

                  The Israelies? No comment.

                      I dont want to share her hole.

                      Not to get this off topic...
                      When you say to your neighbor, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night if that's alright with you," what you really mean is, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night."

                        who cares, it does say or anything else you want to talk about, like why Turd has breakfast in his avatar.

                          I have served in the military and they did not bother me one bit. Granted I did not have experience in a battle zone with them, so I can't speak for that part. Some of the stories I have heard the guys tell though would make most feel queezy. It is not everyday where your buddies are wounded, killed, or you are killing or injuring others. Or just seeing something you only see in movies like Platoon.
