X2 - sounds like my wife.

Between the both of them I imagine we can extricate our military from all middle east conflicts within the next 6 months.

JERUSALEM -- A deadly shootout last week along Israel's border with Egypt has shined a spotlight on Israel's only mixed female and male combat unit, granting some recognition to a group that has faced much skepticism and often been the butt of jokes since its inception.

The Caracal battalion's response to the militant attack on Friday – which left three gunmen dead, including one whom Israeli officials said was killed by a female soldier – marked a major test for the unit that typically handles tame operations. One Israeli soldier also was killed.

On Sunday, Israeli newspapers and radio broadcasts glowed over the news that the co-ed battalion played a decisive role in thwarting the assailants' attack. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu boasted about the work of the unit – named after a medium-sized cat native to the Middle East and Africa – in his weekly Cabinet meeting. Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz traveled to the scene of the attack and congratulated the soldiers.

Okay, preface this with the fact that I am twice your guys age, but I do not want women in direct battle.

Having a man hostage is bad enough, what will it be to have a woman on camera, black eyes, rape, all that as a hostage. What will the outcry be over this with the public? Not the same as it would be for a man, therefore, you should not do it.

I don't give a rip about equal job, equal pay in this situation. Not for women in direct combat. Fly a jet? Fine, but not this.

You mean when he tapped danced on the children of Newtown's graves by calling Benghazi the worst tragedy since 9/11?
