yes women should be in the military, but in general men are the fighters. Throughout history they have been the warriors not women. Yes, some women are physically fit to fight, but most are not.

Isreal uses them in many areas and so do we. He some of the best shots I saw in the Army were women and they pulled thier weight in the field. Hell they were as good as most men we had and better than many. I think they actually try harder to be good soldiers to prove themselves. Having a ***** does or does not make you a good soldier.

And when a women got killed the men took it much harder than if a man was killed.
I guess it's natural for (most of ) us men to care more for females than males....
So they didn't allow women in the front lines any more, just because we men couldn't handle it...


ok I am not trying top push the envelope but this is coming from the same is fact, the men cant handle it. That was my point this whole time.

Can't handle what?

they cannot carry on and do there job when a female gets wounded. They cant handle it when a girl gets injured. Now redneck you agreed with this on page one silly goose.

No I did and still do agree with that as ONE of the reasons, I was just unclear on what you were talking about (the way it is phrased, it would appear that you were saying men couldn't handle combat, at least to me ).

Woman can kill , they already bleed all the time.

Yes they should be in the military.
Although i'm not sure about mixing them with male units..
