    Thank you.

    Spare me the PC hogwash. I'm just being honest.
    If your position is that women lack the emotional and physical aptitude for combat then it is a sexist opinion. It's not PC hogwash.

    If there are any women anywhere that are suited for combat then your position is bankrupt.

    I would counter that these things are too valuable NOT to allow women the option of dying to defend them.
    How does death defend life liberty and the pursuit of happiness?

    Those concepts are a societal, not an individual choice.

    In any nation rises up and seriously intends to take those collective rights away from our society, there is nothing that YOU alone, as an individual, can do to stop them.

    What is needed is a collective entity that trained, equipped, and formed to fight as efficiently as possible to attack and destroy that enemy as quickly as possible.

    You individual desire can only be defended collectively. What is a question is how best to that, and allowing women in to defend a principal in peace may result in its loss in war.

    Currently, the defense of that liberty is all expiditionary, should that process come home and truly involve the survival of our society as a whole it would very much become necessary for women to make that choice you speak of.

    However, to send young men and women off to war aware that there are problems that may effect unit cohesion in the face of the enemy is tantamount to murder unless you you know of ways to mitigate them.

    I know of know way to keep 19 year old men full of infantry machismo from acting like horny young men nor do I know how to stop equally horny young women from sleeping them. That sort of behavior, and the competition it creates, can easily result in needless deaths in combat.

    As someone who has lead troops in battle, that is not a risk that I would take lightly.

    No it doesn't you propaganda peddler. Your pro-life commercial is completely off topic, as a fetus is no parallel whatsoever to an enemy soldier.

    This is completely irrelevant and not even remotely related to the topic at hand. It's also quite classless.

    Well, technically, what I said was a "sexist opinion" but you and I both know that word carries implied connotations with it, and I don't believe said connotations should apply to myself. Labels have a way of distorting an argument.

    If there are any women anywhere that are suited for combat then your position is bankrupt.
    I'm not limiting my position to just combat. I'm talking about a prolonged combat tour with an infantry platoon. It's different. Having said that, I stand by my position. Sure, there may be one woman out there who can do it, but generally speaking, I believe they are incapable of such.
