Gen. Martin Dempsey, President Obama’s chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said on Thursday that the U.S. military could figure out ways to preserve the privacy of young ladies serving in frontline combat units, including special forces combat units such as the Navy Seals and the U.S. Army’s Delta Force. At the Pentagon press briefing on Thursday at which Dempsey and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta signed a directive lifting the military’s ban on putting women in frontline ground combat units, a reporter asked Dempsey: “What about privacy?”
Comments: That´s just what they need to be concerned about in the heat of the battle. s/o What an unmitigated disaster. There comes a point where you shouldn´t prove your "equality" when it will destroy the integrity of the military. Once you start lowering standards you are doomed to fail.
If you´re a tough enough "lady" to make it through training to be a Navy Seal or a member of Delta Force, surely modesty is not one of your vices. My opinion, as a woman, is if you want to serve in frontline combat, there are NO special accommodations made for you whatsoever. If you can´t keep up with the boys, performing at the exact same standards, you do not belong.
#2 says it. If you can keep up with the men in training without any special arrangements, go for it. Otherwise, go home. My wife could do it. We went to shooting schools together. Everytime she went to the can, she always came back with full mags and she was kind enough to share them with me!
Privacy is the least of a woman´s problem...the reason that women are not in the Seals and Delta Force is the same reason that no women are playing in the Super Bowl and that men hold all track and field records and all swimming records and that no woman has played in major league baseball...it really is quite simple- men know it and women know it...only leftists morons can´t figure it out
A monthly period is just what our frontline needs to deal with... 14 days without showers, toilets... 100 pounds of battle gear...and tampons.
As a women and a mother... If your 125 pound daughter cant carry my 200 pound son out of danger- stay the heck off front lines infantry!. Battle support- computer analysis... Pilot... Fine... Fox holes not so fine.
These perfumed prince "generals" are guilty of treason - every single one, and should be tried as traitors after the collapse.
There is an open letter floating around the innerwebs written by a recent combat vet detailing how he and his fellow troops had to urinate and defecate while standing into plastic bags, in front of each other while packed into a transport vehicle for days at a time. As in inches away from each other´s faces, without having bathed for over a month to the point of having sores all over their bodies.
I´d love to hear Gen. Sissypants´ thoughts on having women changing their sanitary pads and/or tampons, having not bathed for a month.
Well, the good news is that the musloids won´t get the chance to rape and behead those women. They´ll all die of toxic shock syndrome long before that.
The few women who can make it through Delta Force or SEAL training are tough enough to stand right up to a urinal with a squad of men and let her rip.
This whole deal is bogus, as those yes men generals who went along with this know that the number of women who will make it through serious gender neutral combat training will be very few and they will not fill hundreds of thousands of combat unit jobs as the liberal media has been fraudulently crowing, and even most of the women who pass out of the training regimen will not stay in ground combat units for very long, as their bodies will break down once they have to carry a 60lb rucksack, a rifle or machine gun and a whole bunch of ammunition on foot for miles in a hostile environment. The main reason for all this is to give a few woman a way to punch their ticket as is required to progress into the higher ranks of the military.
What is never reported is the significant number of unplanned pregnacies among women in the military.Especially problematic are the number of women in combat areas experiencing pregnancy related problems.I guess word of those things never reach Dempsey.
This dog is a traitor to his country. No woman can survive that training. G.I. Jane was nothing Hollywood woman´s lib fantasy propaganda, but in order to make it into "reality" they´ll lower the qualifications to the point that a child can make it. Then all desire to join elite units will be lost for good.
Isn´t it interesting how King Putt has unilaterally ordered women onto the front lines, while none of his Executive Branch flunkies have ever even been in the military? What´s that liberal mantra about, "Chicken Hawks?"
Please, no special treatment. Ripley, the survivor in Alien had no special treatment, fought the monster alone (at the same time caring for her cat) and at the end of that movie she had won, killing the beast. Modesty was not one of her virtues... Oh WHAT, this isn´t a movie.... never mind.
Everyone in DoD knows that promotions to general officer are either the result of a candidates demonstration of strict PC adherence, or that something happens to them once they achieve command rank and they become PC fanatics. Base command hallways are dotted with memos about dedication to ´diversity´ and ´EEO´.
I remember seeing a film showing a special services or seal making his way across a field dressed in gillie in view of "enemy" guards. It was a time release and it took over 8hours to get across the field successfully. We were sobered to think of insect bites, itching. The urge to sneeze or cough. Someone asked what he did if he had to pass water or defecate. He said, " you just do it." I´m a woman, and I´ll stick to to auxiliary jobs, thank you just the same.
His last statement implies they will lower standards to insure more than a few women qualify... and insert women in leadership positions without any experience... so they have a mentor asap. Disgusting.
Martin Dempsey is an absolute idiot, moral coward and disgusting Obama syncophant. There is no doubt women support all aspects of the war effort, to include special operations forces. To think they have the physical capacity to be assigned to these units is delusional and seriously calls Dempsey´s competence and judgement into question.
Women in the Seals & Delta Force? Wow. I thought they weren´t going to dumb down the physical requirements but apparently they´ve done it already. The failure rate for men attempting to get into these 2 units is astronomically high. I can´t imagine one single woman meeting the standards, unless its someone who wants to be a woman but is in a male body, and not even then.
They will provide the females with testosterone and progesterone. They will have bigger muscles, have no monthly cycles and will not get pregnant when raped. The elites will celebrate. Eventually the US military will consist of 80% chubby people sitting at computer screens and 20% orcs.
The standards will be lowered. Anyone who says they believe anything else is stupid or lying. On the bright side this stupid stunt will even things up in the next civil war against our bloated, morally and fiscally bankrupt central government.
As a veteran, in the past I would have been fuming about this insanity. Today I would say why would any traditional, masculine male even consider enlisting in our military. It is run by Generals and "leaders" that are nothing but political hacks, it is totally PC, Affirmative Action and antagonistic to the Christian faith. Our troops "rules of engagement" seem to have been set by our enemies.
PJ Media columnist J. Christian Adams appeared on The Kelly File on Fox News on Friday to talk about his recent article detailing how the Department of Homeland Security has recently hired activist immigration attorneys who worked for pro-amnesty, pro-asylum, and open borders groups in the past. Now, sources inside DHS have provided PJ Media with the employment history and pro-amnesty backgrounds of the newly hired lawyers who will be enforcing federal immigration laws. The ideological histories of these new DHS lawyers undermine confidence that the federal government will vigorously enforce federal laws, notwithstanding any congressional “mandates” to do so.
WASHINGTON -- A longtime adviser to the U.S. Director of National Intelligence has resigned after the government learned he has worked since 2010 as a paid consultant for Huawei Technologies Ltd., the Chinese technology company the U.S. has condemned as an espionage threat, The Associated Press has learned. Theodore H. Moran, a respected expert on China´s international investment and professor at Georgetown University, had served since 2007 as adviser to the intelligence director´s advisory panel on foreign investment in the United States. Moran also was an adviser to the National Intelligence Council,
DEVELOPING: – An elderly U.S. tourist and war veteran detained for more than a month for alleged hostile acts against North Korea has been deported from that country. North Korean state media said Saturday 85-year-old Merrill Newman was released because he had apologized for his alleged crimes during the Korean War and because of his age and medical condition. It was not clear if his confession was coerced. He was taken off a plane Oct. 26 by North Korean authorities while preparing to leave the country after a 10-day tour. Vice President Joe Biden is currently in South Korea on
At the "Fast Food Forward" protest on Thursday, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) demanded that Pres. Obama sign an executive order bypassing Congress and unilaterally raising the federal minimum wage. Rep. Ellison told the crowd that they should join him in demanding that Pres. Obama skip seeking Congressional approval and raise the minimum wage on his own - and that he sent the president a letter on Wednesday presenting his demand: "We in Congress will try to raise the minimum wage. We got opponents on the other side of the aisle who say that there shouldn´t be no minimum wage. So, we
Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan joined WSJ Live host Mary Kissel on Friday where they discussed the ongoing issues associated with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Noonan said she found the way in which this administration has handled this crisis has been among the “oddest” she’s seen. Noonan added that she would like to see “humility” from President Barack Obama rather than combativeness. Kissel began by asking about the “puzzle” of the president’s response to the crisis surrounding the ACA’s faltering website. “I look at the White House the past two months, I think the president and
Another leftist lets the mask slip. Jonathan Alter believes that violent criminals imprisoned for their crimes are political prisoners. He and Al Sharpton talked to themselves on MSNBC today. Sharpton asked Alter what America might learn from the example of Nelson Mandela. Reasonable answers to this question include but are not limited to: Don’t abuse political power to punish your enemies; don’t hold on to political power forever; choose your wife or husband a bit more carefully; don’t seek to divide when unity serves the nation better. Alter wants America to learn a different lesson. None of the above. Alter
As Congress gets ready to battle on immigration reform next year, it´s important to take a look at who will help enforce and shape any kind of immigration overhaul. Former Department of Justice Assistant Attorney General and radical open borders attorney Tom Perez was safely put into the position of Labor Secretary by President Obama and the Senate earlier this year, knowing the Department of Justice is safely locked down as pro-amnesty. Perez has a long history of advocating not for American workers, but for illegal alien workers and made sure the Department of Justice was stacked with pro-amnesty attorneys
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay

In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was
