However if the bar gets lowered simply because enough of the preferred result is not achieved then an argument is to be had.

Granny G,
I have to admit, back in my Navy days, I was against women on combat vessels. My reasoning was that in combat on a ship, crew have to work hard and fast to save a ship from sinking if damaged during a battle. The ordinance t5hrown at Naval Ships these days are big enough that only one or two hits will sink it. Given that, wounded crew members have to necessarily be left where they lay until the ship is saved. There is very little time in which to do that. I was afraid that if a wounded crew member was a woman, American men would stop and try to render aide that they would not do for male crew members. Taking that time might doom the ship and all would be lost. I don’t think that would be a problem now, but back then I was young and thought all you girls needed protection from the mean old world…of course my wife has cured me of that…I need her more than she needs me. :)

I honestly don’t know. Not being a smart aleck, I can’t judge what’s in a person’s heart. I thought her response was flippant (”…or just some people out for a walk one night and decided to kill a few Americans…” or something to that effect) and obviously angry. It certainly wasn’t a well thought out response. One that will be used against her in the future. I’d be real disappointed to know that she simply didn’t care.

If they can pass the physical requirements (so that they don’t become a liability to their fellow soldiers), and if they can take being raped by the enemy when captured on the front line… go for it.

I think few women will actually make it to the front lines carrying 100 lbs of gear on a 130 lb frame. If women can pass the physical tests, then they ought to be allowed. Its all about promotion, and I don’t think you can remove the possibility of promotion without giving them the opportunity to succeed.
