    Honest to GAWD do you not think the military ALREADY tries to cut down the weight that grunts have to hump?? Do you not think that the grunts THEMSELVES try to find and buy lower-weight gear out of their own pocket when they can?

    Well damn it is a good thing you've come along to set us all straight, we'll just cut the weight load that grunts carry in half, damn we would have thought of that already if we weren't all testosterone-poisoned and WANTED to hump 100 pounds over mountains just for the fracking FUN of it...



    Lol! That's funny! I was just thinking that if they COULD reduce the weight, I'm sure they would've by now.

    I am patient enough to wait and let you see it happen. As it must, if women are getting involved and they really are not physically strong enough to carry a ton weight (which is not a fault, but a fact).

    No, it really never was, but it doesn't surprise me in the least bit that you would believe that.

    I agree determination is a significant factor, but it's very possible to fail regardless of how much determination one has.
    Why not pit the best 100 women against the lowest rated 100 men who have qualified thru AIT? That way you get rid of the guys who can't beat a 'girl' and raise the overall quality of a unit.

    Well I didn't, but can see your picture there, so it must be true.

    Do you seriously think it is beyond the might of the military to produce a kit more suitable for female soldiers, when there are people producing invisible tanks?

    I don't think the military should go about changing things so that all women can do all the things a man can do. Keep everything as it is and the small percentage of women who can handle it do it.

    They need to be able to carry their supplies. Apparently, they need some things when they're out in the middle of nowhere.
