Enemies don't see women as equals

The government's reversal of the ban on women in combat is an example of capitalizing on equality of the sexes as a basis for not reinstituting the draft. We've now evolved through the repeal of “don't ask, don't tell” and the reversal of the ban on women in combat.

Are we revealing to the world that our nation is crumbling? Our enemies don't see women as equals, but as inferior, and they also read our newspapers. When our present enemies capture a woman in war, what will happen to her? The reality is too sickening to contemplate.

Inevitably there will be a lowering of standards so woman can qualify for combat. Inevitably there will be a sharp rise in illegitimate children, sexually transmitted diseases and courts-martial. The reality is that our government has no concept of war being bloody and ugly, or it has no concern for the lives and safety of those Americans who serve in our military.
