Global Warming: What part of "natural" disaster do they not understand?
Is the Obama Administration giving the Chinese Communists Access to critical technology?


beacon_flashing[5] It now appears that the Obama Administration will do anything to cripple the fighting effectiveness of the United States Military by using social engineering for political purposes.

Women in all branches of the military soon will have unprecedented opportunities to serve on the front lines of the nation's wars.

Leon Panetta, in one of his last acts as President Obama's defense secretary, is preparing to announce the policy change, which would open hundreds of thousands of front-line positions and potentially elite commando jobs after more than a decade at war, the Pentagon confirmed Wednesday. The groundbreaking move recommended by the Joint Chiefs of Staff overturns a 1994 rule banning women from being assigned to smaller ground combat units. Panetta's decision gives the military services until January 2016 to seek special exceptions if they believe any positions must remain closed to women.

Some front-line military roles may open to women as soon as this year. Assessments for others, such as special operations forces, including Navy SEALS and the Army's Delta Force, may take longer.

Senator John McCain, R-Ariz., said he supports Panetta's decision.

Bottom line …

Continuing with their class and gender warfare, it appears that the Obama Administration is having its cake and eating it too!  If the GOP rejects the idea of women being given wider combat roles, they can be portrayed as being anti-women (a large voting bloc) in 2014 and certainly in 2016. If the women are allowed to serve in combat alongside me, good order and morale is sure to suffer as women will require different performance standards, sanitary, and maintenance conditions than men. Either way, the military suffers.

Should women be given command assignments in Muslim-dominated areas, any hope of joint operations and interoperability may be destroyed. And, when women become prisoners of war or, heaven forbid, casualties -- there is no foreknowledge of how their fellow soldiers or at-home civilians might behave. Whether men will be facing greater stress serving in mixed company during combat operations is yet to be determined.

While women serve openly in the Israeli military to great effect, the Israeli women are far different from their relatively pampered American counterparts.

"A combat option for Israeli women is the Caracal Battalion, which is a highly operational force that is made up of 70 percent female soldiers. The unit undergoes training like any combat infantry. The IDF commando K9 unit, Oketz, also drafts females as elite combat soldiers."

And, to hear RINO John McCain, himself an enemy collaborator, agree to the democrat agenda should make the GOP think twice about allowing him to serve as the de facto head of the Republican Party.
