    Of course, NP, and I have great respect for those of you who serve and have served. I have great respect for women that serve as well. My point was that everyone, regardless of gender, has someone that would be afraid for them if they went into combat. Therefor I don't see your point in asking if someone would want to see their daughter, wife or sister have to face combat.

    I think most people would rather not have to serve in combat, but at the same time, I don't agree with saying that no woman is capable of fighting along side men. I imagine that's the implication that annoys women.

    Have you seen any stories about women living in foxholes or engaging in hand to hand fighting? That is combat.

    I want no part in such things though, personally.
    at 16 they really don't have a clue about combat and as they are men they will find out unlike a woman who can decide for herself.......

    Hand to hand fighting is combat? Why the hell are we spending money on weapons then?

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    sometimes it comes down to that. In a foxhole would you rather a 200 lb guy or a 90 lb woman to have your back?

    Yea, that's where the problem comes in for me.

    I'd say IF a women is allowed to go into combat she must succeed on the same physical requirements and have the same qualifications as the men. Currently in the military they don't.
