    if he was in any war in the recent century black people were already there,so you cant argue social engineering.
    NP clearly thinks racially-integrated units was "social engineering".

    I have no problem with women in combat roles if they meet the physical criteria.

    I do feel afraid though they won't get justice/protection in instances of rape, sexual harassment/hostile environment, etc.

    the military already has strict rules aginst such acts,it just depends on whether or not the said branche enforces it or plays gender favorites.

    Totally disagree. Military leadership works very hard in that area. Incidents do occur, but they are handled quickly. The Neanderthal days are quickly coming to an end.

    USS Acadia — During the 1991 Persian Gulf War, the press branded the destroyer tender USS Acadia the “Love Boat” after 36 sailors - 10 percent of the women aboard - became pregnant during the 7 months the giant repair ship was deployed in support of Operation Desert Storm. The ship’s 1,250-person crew included 360 women.

    I am sorry but I cannot find any references regard the USS Puget Sound as the "Love Boat", there are however several references to the USS Acadia as the "Love Boat".

    As far as I am concerned they can keep on making women soldiers. Here, There, and Everywhere. pretty much accepted all around the world. Not to mention in Africa they even have tribes where the Women are the Warriors, and or Hunters.
