Obama’s Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, Jan. 23, lifted the long-standing ban on women in combat to the cheers of a lot of rich and government-connected people who will not have to feel the consequences of the decision.
Does this mean that women will have to register for the draft and be subject to combat involuntarily?
It would have been nice if they let us know their thinking back in November dontcha think?
Anyway, people who believe sexual differences are insignificant, emotions irrelevant and that combat is somehow an experience to desire now rule us.
The only word to fairly describe them is “fools”.
A few weeks ago, Joe Eastman of Broad Street Ministry, who is a retired naval officer, spoke to the Independence Hall Tea Party Association about his group’s mission for homeless veterans. He said more women are using their service. These veterans have been traumatized by sexual assault. It was not done at the hands of the enemy.
Expect more of this. Conversely expect a percentage of females to start playing up to male superiors to avoid undesirable jobs like combat. Expect resentment among their male peers. Expect less focus on getting the job done. With gays now openly serving expect unworldly 18-year-old males to be subject to sexual harassment and assault.
Expect bad things because that’s we are going to get.
