    Senior defense officials say Pentagon chief Leon Panetta is removing the military's ban on women serving in combat, opening hundreds of thousands of front-line positions and potentially elite commando jobs after more than a decade at war.
    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.

    Elite commandos...I guess Seal selection will now have "time out" cards and the logs they have to carry will be styrofoam.

    I keed! I keed! I'm sure there are some butch women who would be great killers. Tracy Millman, for example.

    The destruction of the US Military is speeding up as these cunts in the white house run rampant.

    Bad news. Unlike the comedy movie, GI Jane, a women will never become a Navy SEAL. It is just not physically or mentally possible.

    I hope not. My husband is a firefighter, and they have had to change the entrance tests so that women could be hired. So, for example, they used to have to prove they could drag someone out of a fire. They changed that so that women could be hired. What the fuck? Do I really want a fireman that can't drag a 200 pound body out of a building? If you are a woman, great, you can apply but you better be able to drag a fucking body out of a burning building! You know, Chyna would be hired!! Anyway, it's just crazy. I'm a woman, but it really pisses me off.

    I don't know about the "mentally" part - I've never been in the military so what do I know? - but physically, I agree wholeheartedly. The DOJ will change that, no doubt. They will force the Navy SEALs to hire Private Benjamin.

    Feminism is killing this country. Literally. Women now don't even want kids and our country is being overrun by illegal immigrants.

    And you think that will change one iota? The political wing of the Pentagon will sacrifice soldier safety in the name of political correctness.

    in 1994, an alarming number of service women were becoming pregnant during training camp, consequently, they were removed from close contact with the male recruits.

    So all of you whining crybbabies in this bitter rightwingnut circle jerk of a thread who believe this are actually suggesting the armed forces of the Unites States are teeming with out of control rapists and sexual predators?

    Wow. I though you fucks were the ones who loved the troops, never met a war you didn't like, and couldn't wait to play with their lives the way you played with your fucking G.I. Joes when you were a bunch of snot-nosed little brats.

    Wow.....how disparaging of our armed forces....

    Why do you people hate the troops? Why do you hate America?
