    The sun just rose in the west! I agree with Mr. Ima for once.

    well, I k now a few women that could do what is necessary in combat. Still, the natural inclination of a guy is to protect the ladies. It’s ingrained. Could be a problem, maybe not.

    But what strikes me wrong…the POW part…..nope. Females would get no clothes. We all know the fate of a captured female. Kind of why the natural inclination of a guy is what it is.

    a part of ruining the US Military….lowering standards for all volunteers….rewriting rules to hinder basic military objectives…to win victory in defeating the enemy. Transforming the mission into a new “Peace Corps”…by the Obama civilians who are anti-war, while the top military brass sits by quietly hoping to hang on to their careers.

    IMO this is an excellent editorial with pertinent facts and the best viewpoint with which I agree.
    @King…..manning drones is not the equal to COMBAT, and IMO drones are not a battle plan for victory, and the media presents a growing protest against using drones. We do face a new type ENEMY, in a sneaky war of hidden attackers. New combat strategies beginning with Identifying the enemy is needed in link with civilian strategies to stem the rising tide of Muslims using freedoms in America to infilter and take over our system of Liberty and null and void our Constitution.

    I wonder how long it will take Mattel to jump on this idea.

    From what I have seen on these boards, it would seem that a general position of the more conservative element here is against this introduction of women into actual combat.

    If that is true, then I must say that is one of those instances when I must proudly agree with the conservative element here. Should we then subject our potential wives and even mothers to the true horrors of actual combat? Is it not bad enough that we already subject our young men to such?
    Especially in such areas of the world where such activities have been a way of life and death for literally since the beginning of human history?

    Should we now have thousands of our young women also experience the wonders of PTSD?

    What next, our actual children on the front lines? Should they not also now enjoy such activities in defense of our freedoms?

    I fully realize that women have already at times had to fight on the front lines as support people (particularly in the medical corps) in ALL of Americas wars. And when called upon to do so are just as affective at actual combat as men are. But a policy to actually subject them to this condition?

    I may be being old fashioned and conservative here, but I say NO!!

    As to these people being volunteers, just how many such volunteers do you think the military recruiters would have if they actually showed the potential young soldiers the true horrors of the kinds of combat that their joining the ground forces in such areas as Afghanistan would bring to them, the military would get?

    These young people from such as the barrios of America are not told about these potential horrors of combat, but only the many advantages (such as free education in many fields) they would get in the military. And now the recruiter can also lie (to be nice, stretch the truth) to young women as well. Such progress, hooray for our side!!

    But don’t worry, Republicans have assured us that women’s bodies have ways of “dealing with rape”, so this is another straw man argument! Besides, they seem to face more day to day risk from “friendly fire” in that regard than after being captured.

    All that they had already, just no recognition of their service. Now they get the positive part of it now.

    Mr. Ima, AHOWGOZIT you are both wrong so often you are an excellent negative bell weather.

    Such a Nazi you are who doesn’t care about anyone but your own interests. Sorry you aren’t German, you are a Crusader and Inquisitor. And abortion and birth control have been around for centuries. Your ilk didn’t care about it till the late 19th century on. Not a whit.

    Drones are being used in place of boots on the ground to kill anyone the USA finds “suspect.” No proof is needed even for identity much less if they have actual proof of anything. Most of the time they have ZERO proof.
