See, I think he's wrong even in this point.  War's not simply about killing.  There's strategy to it.  Your side can lose a thousand, and their side 200.  If their 200 is the top command structure, and your 1000 are low-level soldiers, you're probably much closer to winning than they are.

Glenn Beck is partly right:  the US can be ably defended only by male, gun and freedom loving penis-holders such as this:
thinkprogress.org

On the other hand, he is partly wrong: "This is the dumbest idea I ever heard. Women now fight on the front lines?".  Which is dumb, because apparently he never noticed this, or never considered it a problem, in the 7 years or so of the last administration when the same thing occurred.

Any objection these idiots have to women serving in combat can be disproven by simply looking at the recent history of American women serving in combat.

How would a Mexican and an Inuit even meet to conceive a child? How many Mexican-Inuit people are there in the world?

Also, the Canadian Forces have "ice rangers" or some such thing, who are 100% Inuit and completely hardcore badass. So yes, the army needs these people.

Send In The Clowns lyricsSongwriters: SONDHEIM, STEPHEN
Isn't it rich?
Are we a pair?
Me here at last on the ground,
You in mid-air..
Where are the clowns?

Isn't it bliss?
Don't you approve?
One who keeps tearing around,
One who can't move...
Where are the clowns?
Send in the clowns.

Just when I'd stopped opening doors,
Finally knowing the one that I wanted was yours.
Making my entrance again with my usual flair
Sure of my lines...
No one is there.

Don't you love farce?
My fault, I fear.
I thought that you'd want what I want...
Sorry, my dear!
And where are the clowns
Send in the clowns
Don't bother, they're here.

Isn't it rich?
Isn't it queer?
Losing my timing this late in my career.
And where are the clowns?
There ought to be clowns...
Well, maybe next year.

He's kind of got a point. Front line combat positions should be based on who can most effectively complete combat objectives, not how diverse they are. Therefore, standards for the positions should be based on realistic requirements and anyone who wants to try should be allowed.

Thanks for clearing that up, Glenn.
 
2013-02-03 08:36:08 AM
He's just thinking back to how differently that dark, dark day in 1990 would have gone if a certain young girl -- perhaps a female Eskimo-Hispanic dwarf, since why would he name such an obscure combination if said combination wasn't in his mind on a near-daily basis for 23 years -- had been an armed combat veteran.

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.

Monkeyfark Ridiculous: doglover: RodneyToady: The My Little Pony Killer: War is the act of killing each other. And to win, you have to kill people faster than the other team.

See, I think he's wrong even in this point.  War's not simply about killing.  There's strategy to it.  Your side can lose a thousand, and their side 200.  If their 200 is the top command structure, and your 1000 are low-level soldiers, you're probably much closer to winning than they are.

A Chinese general said something to that effect.

"I can lose 100 to your one and still win." or something like that. It's true, too. If Iraq was the size of the US, we'd have lost.

You're probably thinking of Ho Chi Minh's boast to the effect that he'd outlast the US despite a 10:1 casualty rate.

Uncle Ho said "You will kill 10 of our men, and we will kill 1 of yours, and in the end it will be you who tire of it" Basically meaning they were the home "team" (in Glenn's little world) and something to fight for.

scienceofstrategy.org

Sun Tzu understood war. He was, and still is, an all around badass, He trained Sun Wu's concubines for fighting on the front line. Sure he killed two of them but that was to make a point. when the orders are clear but not followed, the officers are at fault. So Sun Tzu ordered the women's commanders, the king's two favorite concubines, beheaded. The remaining women obeyed the orders precisely.

The first principle of war is deception, not to kill. This is why 2500 years later people are still reading the Art of War. Uncle Glenn will be a mere fascist shiat stain on history noted for ripping off Lewis Prothero.

Yupik and Inupiat in Alaska call themselves "Eskimos," and it is not considered offensive. It is their preferred term for differentiating them from other Alaskan Native groups.

I alone am best: doglover: RodneyToady: The My Little Pony Killer: War is the act of killing each other. And to win, you have to kill people faster than the other team.

See, I think he's wrong even in this point.  War's not simply about killing.  There's strategy to it.  Your side can lose a thousand, and their side 200.  If their 200 is the top command structure, and your 1000 are low-level soldiers, you're probably much closer to winning than they are.

A Chinese general said something to that effect.

"I can lose 100 to your one and still win." or something like that. It's true, too. If Iraq was the size of the US, we'd have lost.

Why is that?


Only 1% or less of American are in the military. We're extremely vulnerable in the civilian arena because that's 99% of the population. You can't beat an aircraft carrier with a stick of dynamite and some nails, but you can beat a bunch of mothers by killing or maiming one of their sons. Beat enough mothers and they vote for the guy who's gonna pull that aircraft carrier out.

We barely managed to do anything useful in the public's eyes except kill people in Iraq with 35 million people to deal with. 10 times that number? Not to mention their military was 375,000 strong. That's 10% of the population for them. If they were ten times as big that'd have been 3,750,000 people. Even if they all surrendered it would have overwhelmed our guys with paperwork and flooded the nation with ownerless assault rifles and a shiat ton more bullets and shells for IEDs and such much more than there were.

Not to mention size. It cost us several gold mines just to pacify the major parts of Iraq and re-purpose their military to bring the country under control. If they were as big as we are, that's a lot more travel, a lot more work, and a lot more money. You can break the Pentagon's will only by eliminating the entire chain of command from the top down, even then one crazy vet will always be left somewhere to start the fight anew. But you can break a Senator's will simply by being a persistent and expensive budget item. We barely got the go ahead from the house to do the Iraq war we did fight. Imagine one with quadruple the cost in resources and manpower to persecute would go over like a turd in a punchbowl.

[thinkprogress.org image 453x646]

On the other hand, he is partly wrong: "This is the dumbest idea I ever heard. Women now fight on the front lines?".  Which is dumb, because apparently he never noticed this, or never considered it a problem, in the 7 years or so of the last administration when the same thing occurred.

Any objection these idiots have to women serving in combat can be disproven by simply looking at the recent history of American women serving in combat.

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,

Problems with your argument:
1)  No one is saying that we should just grab a bunch of random women off the street and put them in battle.  There are standards, and I bet if we found 10,000 basement dwellers and put them in a fight with 10,000 current female marines, that the BD's would die horribly.
2)  Women are already in combat right now.  The military has been using them for about a decade now in combat, by exploiting a loophole in the laws to get more feet on the ground.  Bonus:  This exploit means that women who serve in a combat zone doing combat work don't get paid the combat pay of the guy next to him, due to him being a guy.

Every vet I've talked to (I visit a VA hospital 2-3 times a month), whether they approved of women in combat roles or not, says that if the military's gonna put a woman in danger anyway then they should pay her just the same.  Set the standards and let women try to get to them.  Most women won't meet them, but then again, most men don't.

I'm depressed that we're arguing Glenn Beck's stupidity as if it was a valid opinion, and not as the stupidity it so clearly is, because we've somehow accepted Glenn Beck's attenion whoring as an actual opinion. The sad part is that he thinks he's funny, that he (or a writer on his staff) is somehow a right-wing comedian for stringing that together. And we're arguing it as if it's meant to be politically valid.

Can we say strawman?  The new guidelines will still have standards and women will have to meet them.  So even if all sexism is eliminated, there will still be more male infantry since men are more likely to meet those standards.

Of course strawmen are Beck's favorite targets.  I even understand that he raped and murdered one.

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,


There was a war famous for that sort of tactic.  WW1, in fact.  And it's called the Great War sometimes, so that must mean it's a good tactic.

See this woman? This is Deborah Sampson. She disguised herself as a man and fought in the Revolutionary War. She fought on the front lines, and took two musket balls to the thigh, which she REMOVED HERSELF so her gender would not be discovered. She was honorably discharged and after petitioning the Massachusetts state legislature, she got a full military pension.

What have you done lately, Glenn?

They are some pretty badd-ass soldiers. Not exclusively aboriginal, but most of them are.


So, being a Canadian, I got curious and looked them up on Wikipedia. Here is the picture that came up:

The enemy is going to cower, not because we have a cross-dressing tranny Eskimo, but because our cross-dressing tranny Eskimos are some of the best-trained and well-armed cross-dressing trannies on the planet.

I like the camo pants and the bright red sweatjackets and hats.  It's the reverse-psychology version of camouflage, I suppose.

Remember when Glenn Beck joined the Army and fought for his country?  Oh yeah, he didn't.

russlar: I don;t know. If I wa son the front lines, and saw tila tequila charging me, i'd run the fark away!


I think sending Tila at the enemy would qualify as biological warfare.

Perhaps they anticipate fighting color-blind enemies.

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.


You already have female Marines - damn good ones too. And to cite the first two dropping out is disingenuous  Any new trial is going to have a couple of drop outs and for the record, do you know how many men drop out? Also, you already have women in combat roles: this just means they get 'official' credit for the jobs they do. So rather than being 'attached' to a combat unit, they actually get 'assigned' to it.

As for latrines, you dig them based on numbers - you'd still need the same number regardless - and it's not the big deal you want to make of it.

I say this as one of the first four women in Canada to hit BOTC as a member of the Combat Arms in Canada way back in 1988 - you'll get over it. I promise.

shiat, there goes "Operation Cross-dressing Hispanic Eskimo." What were Democrats thinking??
I suppose we'll have to use actual trained soldiers from now on.
