Joint Chiefs Chairman: ‘We Can Figure
Out Privacy’ for Young Ladies in
Frontline Combat, Including in
Navy SEALS and Delta Force

Cybercast News Service, by Terence P. Jeffrey

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/26/2013 8:47:45 PM

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

Privacy for the young ladies engaged in front line combat? Obviously, the esteemed General Dempsey has never read "Last Letters From Stalingard" (Letzte Briefe aus Stalingard) first published in 1950!

Obama appears to be getting rid of the last few effective flag officers. He fires General Mattis and has this idiot Dempsey as Joint Chiefs Chairman.

He is doing everything in his power to weaken the US Military. If it´s simply his clueless ideology that´s one thing. If it´s deliberate then there is another name for what he is doing...treason.

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.

Terence, call them whatever you want - but not "ladies."

And I thought W.C. Panetta said that we´re gender-neutral now, so there should be no need for privacy anyway.

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.

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?"

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.

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.

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.

Carney: The Toughest Interview

JAY CARNEY: I remember we had some discussion during 2012 about well, is it appropriate for the president, the sitting president and candidate, to give interviews with Jon Stewart and others. And the answer was yes, again because the young voters we were trying to reach are more likely to watch The Daily Show than some other news shows. But also, I think if you look back at 2012 and the series of interviews the sitting president of the United States gave, probably the toughest interview he had was with Jon Stewart. Probably the most substantive, challenging interview Barack Obama

GENEVA – Top diplomats from the United States, European Union, Russia and Ukraine reached agreement after marathon talks Thursday on immediate steps to ease the crisis in Ukraine. The tentative agreement puts on hold -- for now at least -- additional economic sanctions the West had prepared to impose on Russia if the talks were fruitless. And that will ease international pressure both on Moscow and nervous European Union nations that depend on Russia for their energy. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry called the deal the result of a "good day´s work" but emphasized that the words on paper

For several months now, whenever the topic of enrollment in the Affordable Care Act came up, I’ve been saying that it was too soon to tell its ultimate effects. We don’t know how many people have paid for their new insurance policies, or how many of those who bought policies were previously uninsured. For that, I said, we will have to wait for Census Bureau data, which offer the best assessment of the insurance status of the whole population. Other surveys are available, but the samples are smaller, so they’re not as good; the census is the gold standard. Unfortunately,

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

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

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

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
