    You've meet men who didn't make it through boot camp because they weren't strong enough? Are you sure? I saw a few of those that had difficulties but they either got washed back or did remedial traning. The only ones I saw thrown out had physical defects missed in the orginal physicals or punched a drill instructor.

    I can see being washed out in Airborne, Rangers, Seals, Special Forces etc. but boot camp?

    I have an idea. How about we put women in segregated combat units, but where they have the same responsibilities as men and see what happens. That, I think, would once and for all end this debate.

    That would probably be because I don't think physical ability alone should keep them off the front lines. There's plenty of other reasons. I actually agree with you, why I quoted you I don't know I wasn't really addressing anything you said.

    Israel has already done this, and I'm pretty sure no one wants to **** with the Israel army.

    The main reason no one messes with them is America.

    I think combat soldiers fight mostly because they “love” the guy next to them. This isn't about sex, it's about loyalty and identity. You don't have to have a penis to fill that bill.

    Wrong. Man or man, or more accurately person for person, Israel has one of if not the best fighting force in the world.

    I was saying that their army is no joke, and quite capable of defending Israel.
