    actually, the lean, wiry ones are the ones who make the best

    Steve, BUDS is being moved to Malibu beach in 2016. They couldn’t keep it in Coronado because that is where the training standards were very high. Now that the Congress, and the admirals that have turned into politicians, have determined that a woman will be given a Trident the school had to move to an area where she can still work on her tan.

    Why not create SWAMS (Seal Withdrawal and Medical Support) to secure insert/extract points and aid in evacuation?

    I like the officer who said that the physical requirements will not change because rocket propelled grenade launchers and other such heavy weapons only come in one size. If the PERSON can meet the physical/mental requirements, and WANTS the position, then there should be conflict except for the sexist who believes any woman who puts herself into such programs is “asking for it”. If we can put these women in with men instead of neanderthals, they’ll do our nation proud, and we should encourage them.
    Respectfully,

    @Gore Bane

    That is not the policy as described by General Dempsey, the head of the Army, Gore Bane. Your comment is unkind to the military and the men and women who are trying to serve at the highest levels. The physical requirements are to remain in place because the munitions weight and size will not change to reflect differing abilities. The women will also be required to be able to carry fellow soldiers out of harm’s way if incapacitated. They will not put women OR men who are unable to do the job in combat positions.
    You seem to have low regard for those who serve.
    Disappointedly,

    Wow. An idiot, ignorant of facts, and sexist to boot.

    Yes, women are physically different. Women have higher pain tolerance and better endurance than men. As for whether they can be SEALS: You damn betcha! They can do anything a SEAL needs to do, and probably some things they don’t. See this article:

    If I were going to site an article to support SEAL training for women I think I would find a different article. The video of a 5’ 4" woman picking up a a 6’ 4" man in a fireman’s carry is deceptive. He is standing and falls on her shoulders. The reality is she would have to pick him up off the ground and then carry him.

    Guess what? Carrying around telephone poles all day is NOT what SEALs do in the field, at all. It’s what’s between their ears that really matters in the jobs they actually do. BTW, my very feminine daughter out-performed all the men on the department in physical stamina testing when she became the first female firefighter/Paramedic in her county. I also served with a number of women firefighters who were very accomplished rock climbers, and could handle rescues much better than the majority of men.


    Any woman seeking to be in the SEALs or any other “physical” profession MUST be capable of doing the job, period, and that greatly restricts the number of females who can, or should, get the job. However, looking at how many men in America today haven’t seen their belt buckles since the age of eleven, I wouldn’t be so down on females and their “weakness”.

    hahahaha — women doing men’s jobs! Those dizzy broads!

    How ’bout a cartoon now where a woman says, “How can we be overdrawn? I still have checks!”

    But I kid. I love those sweet little airheads! Besides, who’d cook and clean for us if they disappeared?
