    You can't defeat the enemy in thr rear. Infantry doesn't operate in the rear and YES women serving in combat arms units IS THE POINT OF THE THREAD.

    Personally, I'm fine with this as long as they physical requirements are the same. If you can't lift enough or run long enough, you're putting other people in extra danger as well as yourself.
    I agree, and add there is no reason a woman shouldn't be able to kill and die for her country as well.

    Unless of course the enemy is in the rear. Do reread what I said.

    Bad analogy.....

    A police officer's job is vastly different from an infantryman.

    A police officer's job is more about knowing how to talk to people in order to get them to do what you want..... male criminals at times have been more compliant with females than with males because of this.

    Its about "verbal judo" and "verbal judo" doesn't require physical strength stamina and agility to be successful at, it requires mental agility.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    In which case it becomes the front and all support elements are redeployed to a more secure area.

    Spin it how you want, but decisve combat operations don't take place in rearward areas.

    Only in traditional warfare. There is no front in what is going on today.
