    On occasion I worked with some of the most cold blooded women I’d ever met in my stint in corporate America. I would bet the farm that they would be merciless killers in combat.

    All the recent revelations on women in the military are true to the cartoon.
    .
    At least when it is the enemy doing it they can legally shoot back.

    Try an experiment, mickey. Try reversing the gender on that statement and see if you would see it.
    If you think the #1 requirement for a US soldier is to be a “merciless killer,” you don’t know the military.

    Having supervised mixed gender wildland fire crews over the years…it is going to be more of a challenge than expected. The tensions that are caused by young male/female relationships are over the top, especially when you are stuck together for 24/7, weeks or months at a time.

    bingo, R.Rogers. now “your mother wears combat boots” has come true. Cannnon fodder? meet rape fodder.

    The (large) number of military women who have come forward with stories of being raped- and then being told to just “suck it up and drive on”- contradicts your statement. Are you going to tell me those women are lying?

    “Try an experiment, mickey. Try reversing the gender on that statement and see if you would see it.”


    Jeez, you guys are really picky today. Okay, back to the list.
    1. I wasn’t making a broad comparison. I knew lots of men who were not exactly bastions of compassion and love.
    2. I am aware most soldiers are not “merciless killers.”
    3. it was not my intention to get that specific, and I am fully aware of what many women have to endure in the process in general.
    4. I was being slightly facetious, you know a feeble attempt at humor? This is the comic page I believe and the posters are (typically, usually, sometimes) intelligent people that interpret the remarks broadly and can discern “humor.”

    WOW, I actually have to take the same ultra right position as rightisright!

    So now we get to subject our potential wives and even mothers to the horrors of actual combat? Is it not bad enough that we already do this to our young men?

    I would guess that women must know that they have truly made it, when they too can experience PTSD!!

    What next, our children?

    Most of the men I saw in combat weren’t prepared. Why should it be any different for women?

    Isn’t it ironic that one of the reasons women were prevented from fighting in the front lines for so long is because of the fear that they would, if captured, be subject to rape?

    Cool, other than it’s totally voluntary on their part.

    weakening our military, for shame. first it was integration – blacks serving openly with whites, then gays, now women!?

    the end of the world as we know it!

    what we need is for a man like mccain or romney to take charge, get the women out of the military (unless they’re military wives, barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen), kick those damn gays out, and get rid of the blacks too – the military should have never been integrated – it weakened it so much we’ve hardly won a war since then.

    but to paraphrase something right right said a while back – what do you expect when you give women and blacks the right to vote.

    Wow, some people here are anti-black, anti-gay, anti-women, and want to keep women barefoot and pregnant!
    sounds like right out of cave man manual.
    I just wouldn’t Want to be in the military as a woman.

    for a few decades we were getting to be so enlightened. Now there are so many people that are afflicted by xenophobia, hatred and need to splash testosterone all over the place, doing dumb stuff.

    .
    That’s the part I would wonder about more so than rape – young hormones kicking in under isolated and stressful conditions.
