So we should stop letting the short soldiers in too, right? And the ones who aren’t as big, no matter of gender, because these physical differences are so overwhelming?

Sheesh.

Women have already been in combat for generations. The Israeli military seems to have no problems with women in combat.

Too bad most of the examples I’m familiar with are from the Soviet Union. But they made lots of use of women in combat.

Sorry, but women are just as capable of fighting and dying for their country as men. There are no reasons other than misogyny to oppose that idea.

Sheesh.

You mean, men like Audie Murphy?

Audie Leon Murphy (June 20, 1924 - May 28, 1971) was one of the most famous and decorated American combat soldiers of World War II. He served in the European Theater of Operations where he earned the Medal of Honor and several other decorations for combat heroism including combat decorations from France and Belgium.

The 5-foot-5-inch (1.65 m) and 110-pound (50 kg) Murphy tried once again to enlist, but was declined by both the Marines and Army paratroopers as too short and underweight. The Navy also turned him down for being underweight.[4] The United States Army finally accepted him

re: #3 Vicious Babushka

Good fucking point. Anytime some asshole starts biotruthing about women being weaker then men, I’m going to start screaming Audie Murphy.

I won’t fight for this country’s demented foreign policy. Men, women, gays, midgets, whatever , want to serve as Hessians soldiers? Be my guest.

The two major “concerns” the hysterical baggers have about women in combat are:

1. Having men and women shit in front of each other.
2. Those girly girls will be unable to perform a fireman’s carry of a wounded comrade.

Am I missing anything else?

Rebuttal:

1. Men and women have been shitting in front of each other since the dawn of Man. True story. Hell, try living with a French woman….they have no problem dropping trou and knocking one out right next to you while you’re trying to shave.

2. I served 4 fours and could guesstimate that probably 1/3rd (or possibly more) of my fellow servicemen would be unable to perform fireman’s carry of a 200+ lb male. Hell, I was in great shape and very dedicated to physical fitness; I’m not sure how long I could manage a fireman’s carry. Hence, that’s why there are alternatives such as the neck drag, litter carry, cradle-drop drag….
