    Do you really think women in the Military want to risk their lives in combat?[W:57]

    In my 21 years in the military I have never heard of one person be they man or woman who wanted to serve in combat.

    Funny, I've known a lot of people who wanted to serve specifically in combat-- including several who enjoyed the privilege.

    Some women want to serve in the combat arms and specifically in combat. I don't hold with putting women in harm's way, but it does them a terrible disservice to claim they're anything less than genuine in their desire.

    Some do, some don't.

    would you want your wife, sister or daughter to serve in hand to hand combat and live in a foxhole?

    My guess is that even if and when women are assigned to combat units, the powers that be will do everything they can to keep them fobbits.

    I respect them enough to decide for themselves what career they should peruse. I don't believe in treating them as property.

    This.

    Also, they are already doing this now, so complaining about this now is ridiculous.
