Default The basic problem with women in comba

The average female will have trouble as infantry soldiers must carry a load often weighing more than 80 pounds for many hours at a time over rugged terrain in some cases, said Dr. David Cifu, national director of physical medicine and rehabilitation at the Veterans Health Administration.

Im certain the majority of women doing this wont be physically able to do it as long as the men. Its a matter of body size and body mechanics.

I would think that all the Dads showing up at MEPS stations with weapons when their daughters get drafted would be a bigger problem, but I could be wrong.

I think we should go with the all Female military for the next 200 years, just for the "Fairness" and "Equality" of it all.

Wasnt it limbaugh who got in trouble for saying women should be allowed in combat but be all female brigades, because when women are together in groups their menstral cycles synchronize, and he was saying that when their all on the rag is when they should attack?

As a woman and Vet, I agree 100%. Women's positions in supportive roles are every bit as important, and IMO, better carried out by women. The argument that other countries send their woman to combat, doesn't mean we have to make the same stupid decision. I'm glad this wasn't even an issue when I served. Even though I never saw combat, I'm still very proud of the role I did serve.
