Penetta removes military ban on women in combat

99 posts in this topic

You have 4 hours to complete. There are no "acceptable" levels of fallouts. If you can't complete them you are OUT of the Army and can't even be in a combat. If a woman is in combat, she already did her 20k march up to standard. Good?

Is that new? Because when I was in, they'd just recycle you.

ETA: As far as the OP, If they can meet the physical requirements, I'm fine with it.

If they want to serve in a combat MOS, then doing more than 19 pushups in 2 minutes should be required. This isn't a male vs female problem this is a standards problem. If they want a mans job, they need to be able to handle a mans requirements, body type be damned. A unit's combat effectiveness will be severly damaged if only 75% of the soldiers can meet the military standard. I sure as heck wont go down range with a woman or man that couldn't meet the basic physical standards. That needs to be the arguement, not whether or not a chick can go 11-B.

Yeah, this really only opens up 11B entirely. 31B (military police) have had women for a good long while now. The field duties have them in combat zones a lot anyway. 31B really is a combat MOS when you look at it. That's what I'm enlisting as, anyway. But I'm with you. As long as they meet the standards, I'm cool with it (and I know it can be done. I remember in high school there was a JROTC chick who was hot as hell, in crazy shape, and could knock out 78 pushups in 2 minutes). They fall short of the standards, they can try something else with their life.

Remove the ban then require women to sign up for the Selective Service.

I think women should definitely be held to the same physical standard for combat.

For general enlistment, the military cannot afford to be picky.

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

Yeah. PWNT

To be fair this was about Foreign Relations. Newtown is far from foreign. I'm also sure he feels Newtown is by far the worst tragedy since 9/11. Leave Newtown for the future gun control debate. Correct?

And as for the OP....bad idea IMO.

Clinton was cockslapped by Rand

Rand is nothing more than Tea Party scum trying to score political points. Clinton was strong.

Rand was left wishing Hillary faking a concussion today instead of showing up

For a lot of women soliders, that'd be more of the same.

lol i was just about to post something like this. the most immediate impact of this will probably be an increase in sexual assault
