America’s daughters should not be sent into combat. Period.
This should be something. Let’s hear it.
Reports from the Marine training base at Parris Island indicate that only 45% of female Marines could throw a hand grenade far enough to keep from blowing themselves up. If you’re in a foxhole with a woman about to toss one of those, you’re not sure whether to treat her as friend or foe.
Dammit woman stop blowing me up. Try throwing some tea cozies or angry glances or whatever. Anything but another one of your suicide-ades.
Men have to do 20 pushups, women just six. Men have to do pull-ups, women just have to hang there for a while. In the obstacle course, a stool is placed in front of an 8-foot wall for our lovelies. But what if the enemy absent-mindedly forgets to set one of those up on the battlefield?
What if the enemy constructed a hair salon? And then the Marines were like “I need a blow dry” and they walked right in but then it was all “Huh? Al Qaeda?”
Female soldiers are twice as likely to suffer leg injuries and nearly five times as likely to suffer fractures as males. The Army gives women an extra three minutes to complete a two-mile run, which, of course, should be no problem.
Women don’t run, Sparky. That’s the way we like it. They’re staying put cuz’ running is for chickens and sack nylons.
Additionally, all of us ought to be concerned about what happens to female soldiers who become POWs in the hands of Muslims . .
What if the enemy did more than torture and kill prisoners? What then?
In recent weeks, the Muslim Brotherhood has actually paid Muslim gangs to sexually assault female Muslim protesters in Tahrir Square. How will the flower of our nation’s womanhood fare in the hands of savages like these?
How about ‘You wanna fuck, Akbar? I’ll fuck you to death. I’m an American, kiss my ass. Okay a little lower – yep, right there.’
There is a persistent but entirely false myth that the Israelis use women in combat. Well, they did. For three weeks. In 1948. And never again.
Their presence in combat, according to [Brian] Mitchell, resulted in a higher casualty count for both sides “Israeli men risked their lives and missions to protect their women, and Arab troops fought more fiercely to avoid the humiliation of being defeated by women” . .
Bottom line: women aren’t designed by God to serve in combat. If you don’t believe me, just ask the Israelis.
Three, two, one . .
UPDATE: even IDF has gone PC on women in combat
Apparently the IDF has gone totally PC on national defense, and the research on which my column yesterday was based, accurate at the time, is now outdated. The IDF was right before, and wrong now, but it looks like they’ll have to figure that out the hard way just like we will.
Ladies have fought in the Israel Defense Forces since 1948. Some day the country will lose a war and we’ll all come to appreciate Bryan’s wisdom.
According to the IDF, “Women…make up 3% of the IDF’s combat soldiers.”
Good luck with all that.
Good luck with your surviving! Good luck when it comes to your army ever doing anything! Good luck should it ever come to battle!
