Inhofe: ‘Unacceptable’ That DoD
Leaked ‘Women in Combat’ Plans
Before Briefing Congress

Cybercast News Service, by Michael W. Chapman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/23/2013 9:30:47 PM

Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla.), the ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said it was “unacceptable” for the Defense Department to leak news about lifting the ban on women serving in direct combat positions prior to briefing Congress. News reports on Wednesday citing “senior defense officials” said that Defense Secretary Leon Panetta was lifting the ban, put in place in 1994. Specific details were not provided but it was reported that Panetta would make an official announcement on Thursday. In a May 9, 2012 photo, Capt. Sara Rodriguez, 26, of the 101st Airborne Division, carries

~~“I do not believe this will be a broad opening of combat roles for women, because as the 2012 report indicated, there are ‘serious practical barriers which must be resolved so that the department can maximize the safety and privacy of all military members while maintaining military readiness,’” said Inhofe.~~

Thank you, Senator Inhofe...Imagine, just imagine, if President Bush did anything like this? The press would be in an uproar....Un-Believable!

Congress still has not revised the UCMJ to eliminate the prohibition of sodomy - but who cares! We are ruled by Obama and Leon Panetta, The Hammer of the Mohammedans!

Also be sure to enjoy all the comments about how girl soldiers are needed because of the demands of war - when we have millions of men doing nothing....

The Propaganda Machine/MSM needed a story, to avoid covering any mention of Benghazi.

Although women in combat is a small %, it fits nicely into agenda 21... to destroy the family unit.

I´m waiting to see if they´ll advertise the Free Sterilization part of ObieCare or just implement it covertly, like in Africa & India... in our milk... Or maybe Sensa.

Ok, I hate to suggest this, but let´s take this to the logical extreme. Let´s revise the UCMJ and eliminate those silly old ideas concerning sodomy and adultery. Revise the Selective Service Registration to require the registry of all. Oh phooey, lets just institute a mandatory four years military service for everyone. Then maybe some of the Lofo,s will wake up and realize that this stuff has consequences.

Ugh.

What´s the weight of their field packs? 110 pounds? What are the requirements for physical preparation for front-line warriors?
How much will our forces be degraded (i.e., someone else will either have to carry more in their field packs, a man, or carry the "woman soldier´s" pack, and the physical preparation will be minor compared to what the men have to go through and the result will be crippling to our military´s ability to fight wars)? This country has truly gone insane. But as hillary clinton screams when our people are slaughtered...who cares, what does it matter?

Having been in combat all I will say is as long as they don´t lower the standards for PT, etc and the requirements for the elite forces OK. That being said when the first woman is KIA from this the press will have a field day. That is a slap in the face to all the men who have died for their country.

The Hill´s article on this topic mentions that this could have "outside implications" on issues such as the current law requiring adult males to register for Selective Service. What they don´t say, and maybe Panetta hasn´t addressed it, is whether or not women will be required to register too.

The only mitigant I can see has to do with the current nature of warfare. The distance between the front and the rear areas is now so compressed that everybody in the theater of operation is effectively in a combat zone. To that end it is appropriate to recognize that all are at risk.

But I still see bad karma coming down over this decision.

I understand that it does not include infantry, but there are plenty of other positions that are in harms way. 139 women have died in the two wars. This does open up more opportunities for women and it is on a volunteer basis.

P.S. A pack does not weigh 110 pounds. (Don´t volunteer to carry the motor plate!)

The vast majority of the women who think that women serving in ground combat units is cool are not about to join the military in any capacity, not alone become an infantry person and subject themselves to the extreme hardships that have always been associated with sustained ground combat.

Men in combat become very base creatures. They swear, fight and kill. Today, women in the front lines are ALWAYS escorted to protect them from the men on their own side.

I am just waiting for the first women combat soldier to sue for: HOSTILE WORKING ENVIRONMENT.

Another female Navy vet here: most women in the services don´t want to be in combat (except perhaps those in the Marines), just a few of more crazy ones. It´s always the loud minority who get heard. Another example would be putting women on subs: most of us think it´s a bad idea, but there are those few. And for those who say it could be an all-female command, are you kidding me?! That´s a horrible idea.

Sorry, hit submit too soon. These women who are pushing this need to watch some documentaries on some of what the men had to deal with in France circa WWII. It was beyond ugly.

Feminists getting orgasmic about the so-called equal opportunity aspects of front line duty had better get a grip. In our PC culture today I foresee a lot of friendly fire incidents when the women get too cranky and the men don´t want to put up with the nagging anymore.

Having women on the front line is made to order for the 24-7, if-it-bleeds-it-leads, femininized, overwrought news media. When Whitney Houston OD´d, all you could find on TV for three days was gnashing and wailing! Talk about slouching to Gomorra. Now picture the death of a female infantry soldier and the multiple days of showing her precious children mourning their Mom.

I thought Obama said (re Sandy Hook) "If we can save even ONE live...."

There are many roles in the military suitable for women, even if not at the tip of the spear. Unfortunately for women, unless a commander has experience at the tip of the spear, those who are presently there may not have confidence in him/her. That won’t change, and it limits women’s ability to be promoted to the highest levels of leadership.

And when do women start registering for the draft? Unbelievable that so many women will be sacrificed in combat just to satisfy the ambitions of a comparatively small number of women in the officer corps who hanker to be
"real" generals. When does the Betty Friedan Brigade get suited up and ready to march to the front lines?

This is not some affirmative action/equal rights policy. Unless you´ve been on the front lines facing death every day, you can´t make the smart decision on this issue. Panetta made the politically correct decision (as the obama regime defines it) but not the right one.

For tens of thousands of years of history, the men fought wars while women took care of home. Only in dire circumstances, when the army was destroyed and enemy was invading the home did women fight, therefore they should be trained to fight but not on the offensive.

The lefty/LIEberal pols have betrayed femininity through their legislated policies since they bared all decades ago back in the ´60s. American families have been fractured by the lefty/LIEberals´ horrid policy manipulations and men haven´t been done any favors either by such incredibally destructive social experimentation.

Apparently the dem party is now ALL about breaking everything in order to rebuild the entire world from square one according to their flaky template. ...This will NOT work out well.

Above posters are correct - this is a BAD idea. It is Political Correctness run-amuk. The leak was, as above poster rightly stated - a diversion from Hillary.

Inhofe: ‘Unacceptable’ - Then DO SOMETHING about it.

The dictator will just pass another presidential decree and go around what used to be congress. Even the Supreme Court is useless - Obamacare and McCain/Feingold come to mind.

FACT: Physical standards will have to be lowered. FACT: Women need to squat to pee. How will they manage that when in a hole with men? In a fantasy world they will just take a leak whenever and whereever they need with no fear for their safety since all their fellow soldiers will "respect" their need for privacy - in a pigs eye.
FACT: Women will be a detriment when heavy lifting is required.
FACT: Women get pregnant and will be removed from the unit leaving a hole. FACT: Women who want out of combat will get pregnant. FACT: Can a woman carrying a rifle and backpack drag a 200 pound soldier across an open space or through rocks? Of course not, so accomodations will be required to have a woman in a small unit in close combat.
FACT: Bayonets are not a thing of the past.
Finally, the generals will tell the colonels to make it work. The colonels will order the majors and captains to make it work. The majors and captains will tell the Lts and NCOs do whatever it takes to make it look like it´s working and all the reports up the chain will be fudged (lied)to make it appear everything is a success. the politicians will say - see, we knew it would work, knowing they were being lied to by the generals who were lied to by the colonels who were lied to by the majors and captains who were lied to by the Lts and NCOs and they will lie up the chain because they would rather fail at some future date whan fired for not making it work.

THIS DECISION BY SECY. PANCETTA, AND THE REGIME, IS JUST WRONG ON SO MANY LEVELS, IT BOGGLES THE MIND.
WOMEN IN THE MILITARY SERVICE ARE NEEDED IN SO MANY JOBS. BUT NOT (AS A PREVIOUS POSTER SAID)
THEY DO NOT BELONG ´ON THE TIP OF THE SPEAR´.

COMBAT IS HARD AND BAD ENOUGH ON MEN,PUTTING WOMEN OUT THERE WITH THEM CREATES ANOTHER SET OF PROBLEMS, AND PUTS ALL THE COMBATANTS AT RISK.
But then this rule is being pushed by a bunch of people (men and women who will never have to face the results of their selfish push to create what is deemed as currently a Politically Correct Policy.
[I know I put most of it in caps, but this needs to be screamed at those dufus civilians in Washington whose agenda makes no sense to those who will live and die because of it.)

There is no money to implement this. I think the ranks at the front will look like my independent grocery market that runs on alternative life styles, Well it used to anyway. Now it is empty at dinner time because the Moms won;t expose their kids to the "alternative life-style" staff.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

President Obama has been accused by political opponents and media fact-checkers alike of telling falsehoods.
