Democrats Want Women In Combat

No joke ... and sorry about all of the headlines starting with Democrats lately.

(CNSNews.com) - Liberal Democrats in the Senate and House plan to resume "the fight for women's equality" on Tuesday, when they reintroduce the Women's Equality Amendment.

Sens. Ted Kennedy (Mass.) and Barbara Boxer (Calif.) and Reps. Carolyn Maloney and Jerrold Nadler, both of New York, plan to join Eleanor Smeal, president of the Feminist Majority, in making the Tuesday afternoon announcement.

We already have laws that prevent discrimination against women, but apparently they don't go far enough.

The proposed amendment would affect issues ranging from hiring and wages to restrictions on women serving in military combat units.

Let me very clear about this. I've served with some tough women who can fight well from defensive positions, but women do NOT belong in combat MOS's ... PERIOD! No country on the face of the earth has succeeded in implementing women into these roles. Not Israel, China, Russia, Switzerland or anyone else. US military units are having enough problems with integrated units now, and there is no reason to make it worse.

Ask any veteran and they will tell you stories of men having to put up the women's tents, latrines etc. As well as having to carry heavy loads for them because of a lack of strength. It is a common grievance in integrated units in the military.

As for actual combat ... Americans will not stand for women being brought home in body bags that exceed the men, and that would be the case.
