    Should females be allowed to specialize as infantry in the military?

    http://www.debatepolitics.com/breaki...le-troops.html

    That is the discussion that has given birth to this particular poll.

    I want to be clear with the question here. I am asking if you think females should be allowed to serve as infantrymen(persons?) in the military. That means, they are not a cook or aircraft mechanic who has some basic infantry skills gleaned from either boot camp, or extra infantry training like the Marines put all personnell though.

    What we are asking is if you think women should be allowed to be grunts.

    Sigh, no option to study the issue to discover if it is workable in today's military...

    Somtimes you have to go into a policy decision with the facts you have.

    We have lots of facts, what we need is analysis.

    Re: Should females be allowed to specialize as infantry in the military?

    If they can go through the same training and can put as much work in as men I don't see why not. I remember somebody bringing up a link about how in the 1950s the women in the Israeli military became a hazard. It was a really different time back then and women were not anywhere near the level men were on as far as independence went. Add to that the fact that Americans have made greater strides in putting women on the same level as men and I don't see a problem with this.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
