    Aclu sues over policy barring women from combat

    ACLU sues over policy barring women from combat - chicagotribune.com


    The American Civil Liberties Union and four servicewomen sued the U.S. Defense Department on Tuesday to end a ban on women in combat, calling the military the last bastion of discrimination by the federal government and saying modern warfare has already put women in the line of fire.

    modern warfare doesn't have the clear boundaries that may have once existed. It will be interesting to see how this plays out

    I'm not sure why this made me laugh. Not that I agree or disagree. It's more a "damn lawyers" LOL thing.

    War has boundaries? Ever?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    The women in the Navy I talk to don't want to be in combat.

    Oh well that settles it then. Navy Pride has talked to like six women who don't want to be in ground combat, so we should ban all women from ground combat.

    I would never want my wife or daughter in combat but that is just me. Since one is a lawyer and the other is and RN that is not likely to happen...By the way they both served in Iraq.

    Interesting thing about that. Considering they are both adults and we do not have slavery anymore the decision to go into combat should be theirs, though as a husband or father I am sure your opinion would be welcome in THEIR decision making process. Your wants and desires in this situation are really only relevant as an opinion and other than that you should butt out.

    I like how the military is supposed to be fighting for something called freedom and here we have a member who wants anything but for his child and spouse.

    Historically men go to war to protect their women and children from wars barbarism. Women do not belong in a combat situation period. Having said that though those little gook women were bad ass cold blooded killers so I could be wrong. And gook is not a racial slur, it was the term of the day like kraut or Jap, war words are not infraction worthy, I don't think.

    If women want to be in combat let them as long as they receive the same exact training as men, they have every right to be there too.

    I've had some girlfriends who were far more dangerous than some Navy Seals. At a certain time of the month, just 3 of them could have killed every Taliban in Afghanistan and still have had the energy to disagree with me.

    Let 'em loose.
