    In his opinion, women only exist to have babies and raise children, nothing else. Everything else is to be controlled and done by men. Women exist to serve those men.

    Also its by necessity that women do that there.........They are 16 million people surrounded by 100 million arabs who want to push them into the sea..every man and woman must serve.......Its not like that here.....

    Listen I never said that.....Single parents raise children all the time and do it well..........Its just not the best way to raise a child..............Don't tell lies my left wing friend........I will call you on them every time......

    Women make up 1/3rd of the Israel Defense Force. All women must serve 2 years.

    Which is why nearly everyone who said yes qualified it by saying that they should have to meet the same physical requirements as a man.

    This is the only (possibly) valid point you make. The answer would be to simply require women serving in combat roles to be on birth control.

    If 19-year olds aren't mature enough to curb their sexual impulses, then they aren't mature enough to serve in the military. You can't have it both ways.

    No doubt it is, but how is it more so to women than men?
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

The military is there to fight your wars and protect you.that is the only reason.........Cut out the crap..........
    The crap huh. I am 5'6" and most of the women I spend time around are just about my height. Women are not very dainty anymore. The attributes you are talking about are for gymnasts who need to be small. It is not about political correctness, why would women want to put themselves in potentially dangerous situations just in the name of political correctness, that is not very smart -- are you going to say we are not smart as well? They have a desire to serve their country just as much as any man.

    As for social experimentation -- are you saying the military has not done that before and therefore should not start engaging in it now? If you did you would be wrong.

    And some on the right are afraid too...afraid of him not beating Obama.

    But back to the subject, the USAF has had women flying combat missions for almost 20 years and that has worked out just fine. Check out this story (and video) about some female F-15E pilots:

    In the last 10 years of my Navy career, I was around women Sailors every day. On ship and shore. I can only remember very small percentage that would have been less that 5'
    As a dreamer of dreams and a travellin' man, I have chalked up many a mile.
    Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks and I've learned much from both of their styles!
