    Roza Shanina, a Soviet sniper during World War II, credited with 54 confirmed target hits. About 400,000 Soviet women served in front-line duty units,[1] chiefly as medics and nurses.

    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.

    Do you have anything from a credible non-agenda orientated source on that?

    (do you know what assumptions I'm asking be questioned?)

    She didn't serve in a coed unit, either.

    Just to be clear, I'm not opposed to women serving in combat arms units. I'm opposed to the creation of coed combat arms units.

    Even the Soviets new better and formed all female units.

I do not think most militray men really think about the superior officer being a female. Back when I was in I just seen the rank, I dont think I thought much about the gender.
    I don't disagree with you much. But hell, I question the training when I was in for reasons other . I find it hard none question it now.

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

    In an age of asymmetrical engagement, anywhere in theater could be the "front line" so it really is a matter of recognizing the realities (and a political feel-good propaganda story for the dems to feel like they have done something for the history books since they ain't getting much else done these days).

    I have a better idea: post some documentation proving that coed units are historically successful.

    What I want to see is evidence of the problem you claim.

    It's a NO go for me. Thry won't be held to the same standards as men and will be a liabillity in the field.

    If you make a soldier attend to a weaker or wounded soldier , youv'e reduced the threat x2.

    Youv'e completely neutralized the stronger soldier.

    Even on the so called, "modern battlefield", the front is still the front. Infantry units don't operate in rearward support areas.
