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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Both CBS´s Bob Schieffer and NBC´s Brian Williams cried foul on Wednesday evening at the Supreme Court striking down the cap on overall political donations, showing sympathy for supporters of the law. Schieffer lamented that "More and more, the very rich are taking control of our politics" and that "this ruling is just one more sign that we no longer have any campaign laws that really matter."

Law firm Callister & Associates filed the lawsuit on behalf of Larry Basich, who signed up for state health insurance and paid premiums as far back as November, but then was not covered following a Jan. 3 triple bypass procedure that saw his $400,000 in medical expenses passed between the wrong insurance companies, the

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has escalated his war of words against the billionaire Koch brothers by publishing an anti-Koch hit piece on his Senate.gov page, despite official rules prohibiting the use of U.S. senators’ .gov websites for political purposes. The Senate.gov web page belonging to the Nevada Democrat currently features a list a list of “facts” about the Koch brothers, their limited government views and financial support for candidates that support these views. “The Kochs want to abolish Social Security,” reads the page. “The Kochs spent $400 million on misleading attack ads in the last election cycle.” The post

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is "looking" at banning the sale of tobacco at military installations. According to one military publication, Hagel appears to support it.

Vegetarians also have a higher socioeconomic status and a lower body mass index. But the vegetarian diet — characterized by a low consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol that includes increased intake

The story of the first-generation Ghanian-American student accepted by all eight Ivy league schools is wonderful, but it also stirs up the tension between black Americans and recent African immigrants — especially when you describe him as "not a typical African-American kid." That´s been the reaction to USA Today´s profile on Kwasi Enin, a Long Island high schooler who got into the nation´s most competitive schools through hard work and, according to IvyWise CEO Katherine Cohen, being African (and being male). At one point the piece reads: Being a first-generation American from Ghana also helps him stand out, Cohen says. "He´s

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December
