Breaking: Panetta Removes Military Ban on Women in Combat

Breaking News:
Secretary of state Leon Panetta removed military ban on women in combat, opening thousands of front line positions.
KBOI2 reported:

Senior defense officials say Pentagon chief Leon Panetta is removing the military’s ban on women serving in combat, opening hundreds of thousands of front-line positions and potentially elite commando jobs after more than a decade at war.

The groundbreaking move recommended by the Joint Chiefs of Staff overturns a 1994 rule banning women from being assigned to smaller ground combat units. Panetta’s decision gives the military services until January 2016 to seek special exceptions if they believe any positions must remain closed to women.

    Stupid political move. Now if one gets captured we’ll have to stop the war so she doesn’t get raped to death by out by the barbarians.

    Are they going to take the same pt test?

    This is not just Panetta, but the MIC, Choomboi. Can’t wait for the chicks to be captured and raped and mutilated.

    After watching Clinton puke on and on about policy and referencing Panetta during her hearing in front of the House – it makes sense that the ban on women would be lifted.

    These are policy wonks – not outcome wonks. They drone on and on until you’re ready to slit your wrists.

    So,this means we can send Hillary to the front lines…

    I’m OK with that

    So another step towards becoming uncivilized. I for one thing women are too valuable to be offered up as cannon fodder, and they’re just not wired for that type of stress. This is taking equality to a stupid extreme.

    “Can’t wait for the (military)chicks to be captured and raped and mutilated.”

    What a despicable thing to say about anyone who has chosen to serve their country. Where do you traitorous dregs of society come from? What a frikin pervert.

    This announcement wasn’t timed to take the focus off of raging Shrillary, now was it!

    Seriously, if Democrats want equal rights in combat, then amend the Selective Service Act to require all women to register for the draft.

    I have no problem with women in combat so long as you don’t dilute the standards to play the quota game. Israel has women in combat and they seem to kick Palestinian ass on a regular basis.

    it’s the leftys secret weapon to keep America safe, Bil Murray said it best on ‘Saturday Night Live’, 1979
    if we beat the Russkies with a Girl Army, we can tease them mercilessly, “you got beat by a bunch of girrls”, and if we lose then we can say, “ohh, you beat a bunch o’ girrls- ha! so what?”

    -how about Prager’s idea, develop separate all-girls units?

    that this idea comes from a JCF (none of whom ever served in combat) tells me that leftist (and Jihadist) infiltraition of the military is near complete- which means our end is damn close

    DIVORCE! now
    sooner or later you’ll agree, don’t wait ’til it’s too late

    y’knowww, at some point you might want to consider that Repubes are in cahoots… y’think?

  • Lim Lynn

    Troublesome eh? No increase child birth and increase retired single elderly people.

  • Ghost

    don’t get sucked into comparing our military to Israel. that’s dumb in so many ways.
    compare us to Russia, China, North Korea and Iran- what do THEY do?

  • Maria

    As a vet, I really hope they don’t change the PT standard. I believe that if you want to be a part of that elite force, that you should meet the physical standards that have been set for those jobs. There should not be a difference for women and men PT standards.

  • Maudie N Mandeville

    Good. Stick ’em right up front.

  • Ghost

    Prager’s idea of initiating all girls units is genius because it puts Leftys to the test- what is it that REALLY want?

  • Ghost

    every Field Commander knows the history of girls in the military- when it’s time for Action they get pregnant. FACT.

  • Tee Dub

    All calculated to destroy our ability to fight. How long do you think Americans will put up with their daughters coming home in body bags or horribly disfigured? This has nothing to do with equal rights and everything to do with making the military impotent (pardon the pun).
