Just how many women soldiers were captured much less raped in Iraq?

And you're still blaming the woman for daring to join the boys club.
You've been out for at least 20 years, I'd say because your're around 65.

Women near combat units is just a bad idea. They cause more trouble than they're worth. Just reading this thread proves that.

That's an unprovable statement....you have nothing to back it up.

But there's a whole provable history of womens' contribution to our military....too bad you do not honor our troops....that's shameful!



And , since it was MEN who started the wars...I'd say THEY were the source of the trouble.....

I do, however, know of more than a few cases where females cried rape only to be caught lying. Just something I thought I'd bring up.
I can also say I've seen way more scumbags per capita in the civilian world than in the military. I'd feel safer having my daughters on active duty than working in whatever environment you work in, if you even have a job. Comments like yours that generalize military members as a whole make me wonder what kind of twisted things are bouncing around in your little head.
And part of me wishes just one of your type would have the guts to make accusations like you just did in the presence of a soldier. The irony here is people sometimes join the military to avoid being around people like you.
Just a few things I wanted to point out, continue with your whining.

My own observations are enough proof.

Yep, you heard it right.
FOX News, and the white, redneck trash that watch it, both represent the lowest common denominator in America.

Enough proof for what?

Passing a law making women "less than" other citizens?

Passing any law?

Convincing anyone you're right?

Changing anything?



NO.

67. Thanks for the compliment.

I'll finish my contributions to this thread by saying that women in combat units are harmful to unit cohesion and discipline, that they are an unavoidable distraction from accomplishment of the mission, and that they should be removed from the force wherever possible in the opportunity presented by the drawdown of the military. Same for homosexuals.

I will also state that rapists should be executed.

I'm done. Debate on.
