    Re: Pentagon to overturn ban on women in military combat roles

    I am completely in favor of women serving alongside of men in combat. Now the men have someone in the foxhole with them who can make a sammich for them.

    That's not a defense of your position but a deflection there of.

    You're failing to meet the standards of your own position.
    If her position is false, prove it.
    Well, I'm not debating her opinion. I'm debating the use if opinion as if it were factual information. As always, as she makes the claim, she needs support. It is fundamental in argument.

    She did provide support, in statistical information.
    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 don't recall anything specifically linked. I'll revisit it later.

    Need I remind you how much the draft was despised during Vietnam? Especially by the young left.

    Slavery never ended, they just call it welfare now.

    Damn right it was. If that healthy distrust had continued - via a continued draft - we wouldn't have had Bush's War. That would have been a grand thing. Fortunate sons and daughters rarely serve their country. If they were required to, without special treatment, our penchant for empire building would be long over and done with.

    That's a bit offensive if you are suggesting that slaves were just welfare queens.

    I would like to think we can avoid unnecessary combat intervention by using rational discretion.
