Why The Trump Administration Needs To Keep Women Out Of Combat
Wednesday, September 26, 2018
BCF : One of the first women to make it into the Marines just got busted last week for sleeping with a subordinate. She will not be the last. This will be a problem that now plagues our frontline warriors the same way it now plagues the mixed-sex U.S. Navy.
Female soldiers are sleeping with the men they work with, and they are getting pregnant. A lot: 16 out of 100 women on Navy ships are getting knocked up and have to leave their posts. Don’t think it will be an issue for the few women who make it through infantry training? Of course it will. A U.S. Marine Corps infantry platoon is not packed full of Boy Scouts and altar boys. It is full of young, testosterone-fueled men.
They cuss and they drink too much. They smoke cigarettes and tell dirty jokes. They speak inappropriately about anyone and everyone. It is a man’s environment. And it is rarely a glorious existence.
Ever been in Iraq and had to defecate in an ammo can in front of everyone while dug in a defensive position? I have. It was not enjoyable. Do not for a second believe the fancy recruiting videos you see on TV with clean uniforms, nice gear, and smiling faces. In real life, war is dirty and ugly.
It is throwing 80 pounds of gear on your body, walking until you can hardly stand, sweating through your socks and your combat boots, then digging a hole in the ground so you don’t get shot while you sleep. While it may not be politically popular, President Trump and Defense Secretary James Mattis should immediately reverse Barack Obama’s policy of allowing women into combat.
Obama’s disastrous presidency needs to be undone before it is permanently entrenched in our armed forces.
Men and women are not the same. All people may be equal in the eyes of God and the eyes of the law, but they are not equal in the laws of biology. Let us put forth a military of the finest killers on earth. Let Europe worry about diversity. We shall worry about lethality.
