    There's a lot of them around here. It's not the issue that matters, it's the debate.

    I then must ask...

    If some women met those standards, would you be fine with them in the military?

    This is not about them being in the military. It is about certain MOS or Job positions within the military.

    I have no problem with women in the military now with the reduced standards. They should not be allowed in a combat MOS.

    If they could pass the same physical training tests as the men, no problem. Realistically though, ain't going to happen.

    Well, that was actually what I was referring to.

    And how can you be so sure?

    How do you propose to staff military hospitals with nurses and doctors, when they fail to meet those standards?

    Because it has happened in every single case so far. Every military and civilian aplication, with no exception. Including the Marines.

    You're off the reservation as usual. We're not talking about those positions, and never have. You're wasting your supply of strawmen.
