    are you ever honesty in your poscouldn'tcouldnt pick just based on physically description.

    I live near Navy and army bases (Fort Lewis McChord and Navy Submarine Base Bangor) and that is about the size of the women I see there give or take a few inches............

    Of course being the liberal feel good you are its easy for you to say that a 5'2" 110 lb woman (I even added 2 inches and 10 lbs). I think all your "Feel Good Libs" saying it is ok would feel different if your ass was actually in those situations.

    No they are not but most men are a foot taller and outweigh their counterpart women by at least 60 lbs..........I would love to get you aboard ship on a 3"50 gun mount as a first loader manning those 3" 50 projectiles or on a all hands ammunition loading party handling 5" 38 projectiles, I bet they would kick your ass........

    Talk about a grown man crying.......

    Re: Should women be allowed to serve in combat roles in the military?

    As I have said in another of these threads:

    Just before I retired last year, I was Intimately involved in the manning and training of the US Navy rescue crewman pipeline. There was a huge push to get more females in the field. In 5 years we were able to get THREE through the schools (27 months total) and then get fully qualified in the fleet... THREE... Over a 99% attrition rate. Why? Because, no matter how motivated, mature, and educated these fine Sailors were, the overwhelming majority of them could not meet the strength requirements.

    This aligns with what Navy Pride said about women on a DC party. And as I said go him, there are exceptions. Opening the MOS to women is the right thing to do. But don't expect a flood of women running to 11bravo school... And when they do, don't expect a ton to pass it....

    I would take a look at the North Korean Women and the Israelis. Moreover women units can still operate in battle with other units. Or be attached to other units. Can be specialized to fight and not be to much concerned about supplies and or to much gear.
