    Next step is the required sign up for selective service.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I know this from my art - I have asked the question already.

    The wide hips are a problem.. A good problem if you want to have children.
    And yet, some can kick both our butts. That's a fact.

    No one is arguing differently. The fact remains, the battlefield is less defined and is where they are right now.

    Well there you go. I know an African American who thinks we should return to slavery. Based on your logic here, we should. When will you learn this type of tactic is ineffective?

    The Battle on Roberts' Ridge didn't happen in the rear. The objective is to keep the enemy from threatening your lines of communications and the only way to do that is to take the offensive, seek out the enemy and destroy him in close quarter combat, by use of speed, terrain, tactics and firepower.

All this, sure if they can handle the physicality of it, then let them nonesense is missing the obvious political chest puffing this all is. All this is is some powerful womens lobby group (over the years) not being able to see the forest through the trees. -Or-, if you like, as long as it ain't my daughter the message is more to further womens perceived lack of equality and is worth the sacrifice of a few daughters to get the recognition. Politicians, like elitests, have never in the history of mankind, ever had a problem letting someone else take it up the you know what, just so long as the bigger picture is realized, and or furthered.

    This will all be great until females start coming home in body bags at the same rate men do, then see how long this little social experiment lasts!

    Tim-
    This needs to change! If women want to be taken seriously when the word equality comes out of their mouth, then they need to share the burden of defending it. Until then, I will not take any of them seriously. You don't get the frosting for free and then leave the men to fight over the bread. That is not equality, that is entitlement. Get these women on the front lines! Get them registered in the draft! I will respect them if they do these things and start taking an equal share of the responsibility!
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    Not sure why you think this is an effective rebuttal on your part. It is not a question of whether you can find a battle that was four forward, but whether attacks also have in the rear. The point is e battlefield is not "out there," but everywhere.
