    You do know if there is a national emegency like WW1, WW2 or the Korean conflict there will be a draft right?

    Stop generalizing about women.
    Why do I bother but you do know that under the new regs all women will have to sign up right?

    No it does not.
    Next question: Must women register for the draft? - Kate Brannen - POLITICO.com
    "“Attention: Even though the secretary of defense has decided to allow women in combat jobs, the law has not been changed to include this. Consequently, only men are currently required to register by law with Selective Service during ages 18 thru 25. Women still do not register.”

    I responded no but I wasn't signed in apparently although it still looks like it counted my vote?

    Anyway you're kind of sending mixed messages, you want women to be a part of the draft but you don't want them in combat or are you just hoping that people will change their minds when they realize that making it a requirement for women to sign up for selective service is just the next logical step in all this?
    I believe half of the things I say and say half of the things I believe.

    I feel the same about my daughter as I do about my sons. Why would it be any different? They are all my children in equal measure.

    Re: Do you really think women in the Military want to risk their lives in combat?

    i have served with female MPs in a combat theater. Some were good and some were a royal pain in the ass. complained about everything. IOW..no different from the males.

    IF: they can meet the same standards as the males, I have no problem with them serving in combat roles.

    Where i take issue is with setting a lower standard for them to make them eligible.

    Don't tell me that i have to do 50 push-ups, 50 sit-ups and run 2 miles in 16 minutes to qualify and then tell a female half my age that she only needs to do 18 push ups and run 2 miles in 24 minutes to be "equally qualified' as I am.


    edit; IOW, don't put my life in danger because i may have to stop and drag her ass out of harms way because she collapsed under the weight of her gear, or because she can't drag my ass to cover if i get hit, etc.

    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    How about in a tough situation in a fox hole and you are being over run by the enemy and the woman who has your back breaks down and starts crying... In a lot of cases, not all, that will happen.
