Word came out yesterday that the US Army and Marine Corps would be forced to integrate women into ground combat units like the infantry. Despite all the evidence from numerous tests and experiments the military has done that show women are physically not up to the job senior leaders decided that women deserved the chance. Young men in our infantry units will soon be in increased danger because they will have to serve with inferior soldiers who endanger the lives of the entire units the serve in because they are physically weaker than male soldiers. One defense official was quoted as saying that “The objective was ‘to open up positions to men and women with a gender-neutral standard’ which may require an adjustment – but not a lowering – of physical qualifications, a senior DOD official said”. Notice the official already has admitted that the standards will have to be changed but of course they won’t be lowered. This is an embarrassment, this is the kind of thing that you would find in a European army that focuses on training for the next parade instead of the next war. I feel sorry for those male grunts that will have to be maimed or killed just so some woman can punch her promotion ticket.
