    Anyone (Man or woman) who is not willing to risk (Not give up - risk.) their life in combat does not belong in the U.S. Military You don't go to war intending to give your life, you want to make those poor basteges on the other side give their lifes. But you have to be prepared to give your life in defense of the USA if that becomes necessary. Not everyone comes home alive.

    Here is one line from The Code of the United States Fighting Force:
    "2. Code of Conduct I a. I am an American fighting in the forces which guard my country and our way of life. I am prepared to give my life in their defense.

    See the entire code here: Code of the United States Fighting Force - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    This code has changed a little since I memorized it back in 1961, mainly to make it gender neutral.

    Have a good day.

    That may be, but if the US would just get it's nose out of every other country's business we wouldn't need our ridiculous military budget. Our country is on the verge of bankruptcy and we need to seriously dial things back. We can't afford to be world police anymore.

    with rampant unemployment and all the poverty stricken people in the US, we can't afford to feed the starving masses of the world (or cure AIDS in africa) either, but you never see many people advocating to stop spending that $$$$$. They always want to come after the military.

    I'd have no problem with reducing our global military footprint...IF we weren't the first ones every other country comes crying to for help whenever there is some natural disaster or crazed warlord killing them.

    you can't have it both ways
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    That's odd. You missed some. I myself wouldn't mind being a military sniper.

    Well if we can't afford a worthwhile cause like saving starving children, we sure as hell shouldn't be invading countries that are not a threat to us, then trying to run their government for them for years. Do you really want to argue that the amount of money we spend on relief touches the military's budget? It's no question what our biggest area of wasteful spending is. Sure, I could have it both ways if this country prioritized differently.

    Is there supposed to be something there beyond the poll?

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

    This is a very good question. Of course some women, just like some men, want to serve in combat. But historically, women have not had the choice, but now I wonder if they will have the choice in the other direction. Men can't generally choose to avoid combat, so in the future, will women have the choice or be assigned as men are to combat or non-combat roles?

    Of course there is some choice for men to the extent they get to choose their MOS, but will women be able to just say, "no combat for me, thanks!"? And if that were the case, would it really be equality or just the option for women where men do not have that option?
