    I hate to bust your bubble but growing up in the mountains of Pa I kind of have a laid back southern drawl even though I am not from the South.

    So why are you questioning other people's experience? You can't have it both ways.

    No, no no. You've got it all wrong. His experience is the correct and true experience, therefore everyone else must be full of ****.

    If we're talking about running a Bradley's guns or operating a combat drone or driving a tank, sure.

    Infantry is a different ballgame. It isn't just a matter of being a good shot.

    Infantry's #1 job description is "must be able to suffer great physical/environmental hardships and remain functional", followed by "must be able to hump ungodly amounts of gear across terrain goats would consider rough".

    Not all healthy young men qualify for infantry, either.

    Some women can qual #1, but far fewer can qual #2. As far as I'm concerned those who CAN should be able to be in those units... but if everyone in Company C is expected to be able to hump 108 pounds of gear afoot across mountainous terrain, I can see a problem if a woman is allowed in the unit and the most she can hump is 65 lbs. Means someone else has to carry nearly half her gear.... that would be a problem.

    Women in combat, yes....but only if they meet the same standards for that particular unit type as the men. JMO.

    It depends on what kind of combat role. If it's a Navy Seal team where you must have a lot of physical power, then perhaps not since women are generally physically weaker than men.

    That's it in a nutshell. I really don't get how anyone could come to a different conclusion. I also think it's ridiculous that apparently some military organizations are setting up different (i.e. lower) standards for women in their organizations. That's totally wrongheaded and potentially very dangerous.

    Its easy for someone who has no clue about serving in combat to say hell yeah, let them serve......If they had been there they might have a different opinion.

    That doesn't mean it HAS to go on, just that it has gone on in the past. Things can and often should change.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I am not questioning anyone experience, I am asking if they have experienced combat.I don't question your combat experience........I believe you were on a carrier in the mideast during the first gulf war...I am questioning the perople like Thunder and Aderleth who never served in combat and never served at all....
