Cause women to sign up for the Draft ?
There are a lot of people saying that we absolutely should do this, because if men are subject to the draft, so women should be as well…what’s good for the goose is good for the gander.
I could not disagree more strongly to this shortsighted point of view.
Having women in combat is bad. It is wrong. It is wrong, from the ground up and from all points of view, it is wrong, and it is going to get people killed, and we are going to lose battles and wars as a result of it.
Any thinking person should be against women in combat as a basis for any other decisions on the draft, deployments or anything else.
The US Navy and US Army have already made the choice to allow women into combat roles, and the decreased readiness, capability and morale are evident.
On the pessimistic side, this is all a fait accompli. It is a done deal, as is open homosexuality in the military. It isn’t going to get undone now by anyone, I don’t care who gets into office. Mark my words. Any politician, general, or anyone else who says they are going to reverse this is lying, and they know it.
And the liberals who pushed for this (to turn the military into Scandinavian Job Program-like organizations) have known this from the start, what the end game is, the destruction of the military as an effective force with a global reach. That is why Obama has used executive orders to advance this, and his administration has purged anyone from the military who might stand in the way and has replaced them with pliant stooges. The ones who remain see full well what will happen if they speak out.
As this progresses, we are going to see a lot of military leaders (and personnel at all rank levels) saying how wrong people were who were against this, that readiness and capability is better than it has ever been, and everything is going to be good. They will say this, and may even believe it themselves, because it will be good for their careers. That will all be understood.
Then, when the shit hits the fan , and there is death, humiliation, and defeat, as is the case in any military endeavor that has any liberal fingerprints on it at all, the people responsible for this will be long gone. If they aren’t long gone, they will be screaming the loudest and the longest about how could all of this have come to pass, and who is responsible for this!
