    If women in combat was such a great idea why wasn't this done in obama's first term instead of now? IMO it is a horrible idea and will weaken and demoralize our military.

    (in general towards the whole subject - not your post
    No one joins the military hoping or planning or wanting to die (risk their lives) in combat (or training - or on a march - or on the range) - they join for all other reasons and sometimes they take the risk because those other reasons are worth it.

    Don't let him fool you - he didn't think of anything else when he wrote it. That would have taken too much effort on his part.

    Can we sort of agree that we all are ok with women serving in combat if they so desire in an abstract theoretical rights way, but that we all know it is really nothing more than symbolic because when a real war breaks out again, women just are not an easy fit into the system.

    There are always exceptions, Navy.
    I would imagine, that in Europe, during WW2, there were a great many.
    A generation ago, at that terrorist attack on us (9-11) did you not wish to do something..
    I did..
    But what ?
    Against who ?

    As to our foreign adventures...even then IF the "enemy" is being eliminated....
    One must define "foreign adventures"....

    Navy became interested enough in creating a thread so as to specifically and only apply it to women, in the vain attempt to make women seem both weak and needing protection from anything dangerous.

    "no exceptions"
    You must be non-serious...
    Of our populous, a low percentage of men and a lower percentage of women are fit for combat..
    However, in the absolute defence of our nation, 100% must do something as best they can....all other will be shot..
