Women in Combat

During the war with which Israel was forced to begin its existence, it tried to use female soldiers, only to discover that male soldiers instinctively moved to protect them in the heat of battle. Since then, despite the enduring myth of “Israeli female soldiers”, women in the Israeli military are filing clerks.

Any woman who would discourage this masculine response is not right in the head. Men should protect women and should receive proper societal rewards for doing so. These days, both those principles are under attack, but especially the latter.

Florence King reviewed Seasons of War: The Ordeal of a Confederate Community, 1861-1865. Only one small detail from this review is relevant to this blog:

The soldiers stationed in Culpeper… decided to have a dance, correcting the dearth of females by arraying some of their comrades in dresses confiscated from Rebel women. At first it was pleasantly silly, but when a fight broke out something primitive happened – suddenly, just for a moment, the “males” found themselves instinctively protecting their “female” partners.

    Women and war: The toll of deployment on physical health

    http://www.physorg.com/printnews.php?newsid=137950900

    yup, they are just like us men…
    (they just lack the will? i guess when their new socialist leaders get control, they will become enemies of the state for not benig equal to the men)

    anyway..

    More than 80 percent of a sample of Air Force women deployed in Iraq and other areas around the world report suffering from persistent fatigue, fever, hair loss and difficulty concentrating, according to a University of Michigan study.

    80 percent rate… how nice..

    whats also interesting is that the article implies that guld war syndrome may be what happens when you take domesticated humans and put them in real world situations, which women suffereing more than the men.

    Asked if they experienced any of a list of symptoms persistently in the past year, 89 percent of those surveyed reported suffering from fatigue, 85 percent from difficulty concentrating, 83 percent from fever, and 83 percent from hair loss. In addition, 35 percent reported suffering from muscle pain and stiffness, 29 percent from irritability, 26 percent from loss of energy and 25 percent from headaches.

    yes… i like people flying military air jets, and having access to heavy weapons of disctruction not being able to concentrate, it makes life so much more interesting.

    it may also be that they are not properly trained. the cards they hold up that stops the drill seargents from being too tough also may not allow them to prep them for the reality of combat.
