    absolutely. who cares if more of our people die, so long as we back in the civilian world don't have to suffer from liberal guilt because somebody somewhere was still putting efficiency and mission accomplishment ahead of identity group politics?

    However this ends up. My hope is that the Navy runs a thorough pilot program to test out the idea and if it works, great, if not, great. The mission is more important, but if it can be made to work, that is good too.

    Seems to be a simple answer to this issue and the issue of pregnancies.

    Only allow women who can do the job in question...to do the job.

    Require mandatory birth control for those who would compromise the combat effectiveness of a unit by becoming pregnant.

    Those who violate this last (by becoming pregnant) are discharged from the military.

    It takes a special kind of person to serve on a fast attack or a trident sub...When they go to sea they are underwater for up to 90 days....Never seeing the sunshine or the light of day.......I don't know why anyone would want to serve on one let alone a woman.....I have been out to sea for up to 90 days and that was bad enough but at least when knock off ships work was called at 1600 I could go back on the fantail of the ship and have a cup of coffee...Can't do that on a sub....

    I think the time has come to allow women to serve in all areas of the armed services, including subs.

    Hey, I'm sure that plenty of submariners would be willing share their racks with women. It would bring new meaning to the expression "hot bunk".

    You got that right............I truly believe the wives of the guys on the subs will have a huge impact on any decision to let women serve on subs......

    What opposition would there be to subs manned (no pun intended) by an all-female crew? To my mind at least, that would solve most issues...
