  1. This is stupid. Women aren't physically equal to men. It's just a scientific fact. Sorry to break the truth to all of the political correct people out there. If men and women were truly equal as soldiers, then we should've just fought WWII with all women instead of what we did. I'm sure it would be the same outcome right? Also whenever there is a huge bar fight we should just send in a couple women cops in to break it up and just leave the men at the dispatch. Why not? Equally strong right? not

  2. I remember out on patrol in Afghanistan and the FET team couldn't hang and I had to carry their packs. Women in a combat zone is a bad idea. Bit not until they cause people to die that they will change it. Blah bla blah equal rights yeah I'm all for it but they can't hang

  3. there aren't even equality among men,not to mention men and women! This is nonsense,those people trying to make an ideal out of everything without admitting to our deep human nature!

  4. If women want to, let it be. It there choice. But in stress war outcome situation she might or can't hang and jeopardize and get the other member killed.

  5. we need more dumbasses were running out of men most don't have legs these are our dumb sheep that we call hero's to get them to kill for us
    but no politicians or there retarded kids go . really you dumb sheep really

  6. Every job but Secretary of Defense. What's up with the administration's refusal to allow women and minorities to hold more important positions in the cabinet?
