They don't belong in combat. End of story. I don't care if other countries do it, it's still not a wise decision.

They already are. Learn to deal with it.

I'm just glad I got out before they did.

One point is that a guy can drag his buddy out of fire, most women cannot do so...they have problems lifting even their own weight, much less someone who weighs more than they do. Just one example of women not pulling their own weight.

Deal with it.

Mythology at work.

It's a fact. Just like it's a fact that the physical standards are different.

Oh Pooh, How many Buddies did you carry out of fire?

I was detailed to a Special Forces Camp in the middle of War Zone C and realized that the Cambodian Mercenary unit had their women with them. I asked the Detachment Commander about it and he said "Yeah, someone has to carry the mortar baseplate and ammo"

I've seen plenty of women who could carry their own weight incuding one SFC at the Tomb of the Unknowns who was sharper than the men. The only thing I worry about are the overzealous officers who issue directives like one I got, requiring me to give an award to every female soldier. Luckily we had none or I might have lost another stripe

I believe I said "can".

Men are simply stronger than women. It's a known biological fact. Maybe that's why--again--the physical standards are different.

Some places physical strength matters. In most it doesn't.

But combat is one of those places.

Air to air? Submarine warfare? Missile defense? Clandestine ops? Artillery? Lots of different potential combat out there. Very few require dumb hulks with bulging muscles.
