    So instead;
    a. Maybe you should apologize for trying to twist my words few posts ago.

    b.Try answering my question, and actually educate yourself regarding the IDF:
    Do you know how soldiers in the IDF are being graded as combat or non combat?
    ...Just a hint, 03 =/= 05 =/= 07

    Fallen.
    I didn't try to twist your words and I owe you absolutely nothing. Try posting the link I requested first, and then I will consider your question.

    a. You openly claimed that I said something when I did no such thing.
    So yes I do expect an apology for that.

    b. And in order to consider commenting on anything regarding "combat" roles in the IDF you need to know how soldiers (and units) are being graded.
    Unit then all your "analysis" is based on the word "combat" which is meaningless in the context you try to apply it.

    Well you're going to be waiting a LONG time buddy! And I still see no link, and I'm not going to respond until I see you prove the allegations you made. The IDF states that these women are in combat units. You say they aren't "really" combat active. I want evidence.

    He can't.

    The links I posted clearly state that the IDF is planning on expanding their use of women in combat forces because it's worked out very well for them. That must piss you guys off to no END! Lol!

    He's demonstrating why the military more and more focuses on making intelligence the measure and standard, not brawn.

    Many of the posts in this thread show that some people are eager to get our soldiers unnecessarily killed for their silly political correctness.
    No one yet has been able to give an example of women in combat as caused even one of our soldiers to get killed. Obviously you want a weak American military and probably think the USA should "off-shore" the USA military to hire soldiers from India and China.

    Fortunately there are reasons why it is wiser minds that call the shots and set the standards.

    I quoted directly from your post on IDF rules. When it states women are "not allowed." I take that to mean exactly what it says, even though they may be part of a combat unit. It may not be fair, but that's the way it is at this time, and the women apparently accept that.
