randomjsa: Oh I can do better than that.We'll take 10,000 men and 10,000 weapon. Both sides get all the same equipment, supplies, and training.Let's start a war... at the ga... kidding.The women are going to lose horribly. Yes they are. Yes. They. Are. That's not sexist. That's not underestimating women. That's just how things are. If the contest involves fighting, the men are going to win in a contest against women. This is his point. War is about killing people and breaking things, and whoever does it the best wins... Period. This is the same reason men are far more likely to commit violent crimes than women too.When lives are at risk, and they always are during war, diversity and equality get to take a back seat to reality. If you want women in combat roles, that's perfectly fine, I'm not against that but you will have to accept everything that goes along with that whether you like it or not,
ROBO-Jesus: So, being a Canadian, I got curious and looked them up on Wikipedia. Here is the picture that came up:
russlar: I don;t know. If I wa son the front lines, and saw tila tequila charging me, i'd run the fark away!

ha-ha-guy: I only support female troops if they don't increase the logistics tail of the effort. When suddenly you need dig an extra set of latrines at the forward fire base and erect another bunkhouse for the women, fark that. If we're talking Starship Troopers movie style where everyone uses the same resources, meh.The other concern is that the first two females who tried to complete the USMC training for infantry officer both dropped out due to physical limitations. The command structure really want some female officers though so they can appear progressive and there are concerns they'll just nerf the standards for the next batch.Other countries have had success with female combat troops, the question is if America will implement it in an efficient way or just do quotas. Personally I'd say to start off, any female who wants to do front line work should end up in a role similar to the one the females in the 707 White Tigers play. The women are sent in because terrorists and the like much less likely to see the woman as a threat. I'm less sold on the idea of just making every infantry company 1% to 10% female and upping their logistics tail as a result.
