Look I to em a combat soldier and know first hand that women can be
just as effective
combat warriors as men. A goodly number of American casualties came at the hands
of female Viet-coms. But unlike those men who want to put women in combat I have a strong Paternal
instinct which instinct
protects women and children and would not put
women and children in harm's way.

For me the question is not as much can women be effective combat
warriors as it is
should women be combat warriors. The answer for me is decidedly no.
Why? Because in order to kill an enemy you must first vilify, and
demonize enough to hate
the enemy enough to kill him.When a woman goes into battle it will most
likely be a male
enemy she must demonize and vilify him in order to kill him. When she
comes home
she will be expected to form loving relations with the gender she just
vilified and demonized.
Good luck with that one.

In addition women will have to suppress their nurturing instinct in
order to kill. this is the very trait
so badly needed in society. Why do you suppose most of the violent
crimes are committed by men.
It is because of our nation's perpetual wars. Already we are seeing an
increase in violent crimes
committed by women. As more women are put into combat we will see
even more violent crimes
committed by women.

In addition in order for men to kill women enemy soldiers men must
suppress their natural
paternal instinct which serves to protect women and children. thus
both women and men must suppress
their finer instincts. Isn't civilization great? When primitive
savages went to war it was men aganist men.
Now that we have civilized the savages we send women and men so that
each can share in the
killing business. Oh what progress!

Have we men deteriorated so much that now we must call upon our
sisters to defend the nation? There
are plenty of jobs women can do to aid the military than to serve in
combat roles. As for career advancement
if combat is holding females back wouldn't it be better to wave the
combat experience as an obstacle
for women in preference of seeing them come home in body bags.No real
good man would object.

As for America's military brass that support women in combat
I would remind them that the male
paternal instinct is one of men's finer instinct. good men do not put
women in harm's way.

You said that women have to come home to someone of the opposite gender and love them, which is not true. She may not be hetero, she may be single, and she doesn't have to love them.
Many man are homosexual and would have to kill the gender that they find affection in.

You suggested that the more women that go into combat the more violent crimes by women will be committed. Many women do not go into combat and still commit violent crimes.

If we so badly need a nurturing instinct in our society, there is no excuse for men to not be nurturing.

Women also may be more skillful than some men. Not that all are, but some are better. So why not let them fight for the country they love?

Women are able to demonize and vilify to make themselves kill someone. It happens all the time in violent crimes, so why not in combat?

In conclusion, women can be better than men, and when in a war, women should be able to participate. Women are and can be effective and beneficial members to the military.

War is no place for men, let alone our young ladies. The only people pushing that were old ugly feminists who were too old to go themselves.
