    It is within the realm of possibility that their presence in theater (not necessarily on the front lines) has a civilizing effect on male soldiers, leading to less rape and other atrocities committed against the civilian population, as well as less depression, anxiety, and suicidal ideation among soldiers.

    There is no logical reason to keep people who are qualified and desire to serve in the infantry from doing so. Feel free to try and prove me wrong in that statement, but I do not believe you will be able to.

    So if a woman is a great sniper you would deny service because she has a vagina?

    The same things that men bring to a battlefield. What more should they need to bring?

    They can bring an assortment of hygiene issues that would have otherwise been absent.

    Walking around in 140 degree heat with a piece of cotton in your vagina without having bathed for a few weeks (I had to go six weeks once) just seems like a recipe for disaster. Although, after having eaten and slept so little in that time period I'd be surprised if the woman was capable of having a period at all.

    Oh, and I'm sure the Iraqis would LOVE have American women busting into their homes, telling them what to do and how to do it. That would really endear them to us...

    No because Iraqis just love it when Americans male soldiers are busting into their homes and telling them what to do.

    What the ****.

    I guess I wouldn't be opposed to some kind of specialized "indoc" for exceptional females. Assuming they could find enough of these bad bitches (and I use that term with the utmost respect) to create a homogenous infantry unit then I see no reason to deny them the opportunity to serve in combat.

    Oh, so you haven't met any Iraqi men? Thanks for clearing that up.

    You see, Arabic/Muslim men would NEVER tolerate a group of women patrolling through their neighborhoods, busting down their doors, barking orders at them and their family - even conversing with them is out of the question. That's just reality, buddy. Once word got out that a female infantry unit was patrolling through Iraq or Afghanistan it wouldn't be long before that unit was wiped out in a massive, coordinted attack. I wonder what they'd do to the ones they captured...
