... the fuck does that have to do with the discussion at hand? And the answer is tomorrow. Tomorrow is when the USA decides to take over the world. And we're coming for Sweden first.

I was in the military for many years. If they can do the job, they get my support.

I think the most logical way to implement it first-if she were to pass the rigorous training- is to assign a female 2nd Lt. as a platoon commander in a line company comprised of just men. Officers are held to a higher standard from the get go anyway when they come in so might as well start there and then gradually allow female enlisted to join after. Might as well have them as highly schooled tactical field leaders going in.

I've been in the Infantry for over 5 years now (both active and Guard), and I can say that everyone I know in this field joined to fight, not so much for the college money. [/quote]

I was agreeing with you/giving the combat arms perspective.

Yep. I joined the Marines as an 03 for the action. I ended up never using much of my college money(though I wish I had).

The Australian Army is going through a similar process. Except that it's been recommended here (and accepted by the government from memory) that a form of affirmative action is to take place (which is just a plain bad idea in a military environment, but go figure). The sky won't fall down on us or the US military if it's handled correctly, but unfortunately I think it will be a long time until women are serving trouble free in frontline units.



Julia Gillard as an affirmative action benefactor in the parliament is one thing, but the military? Seriously? And this is from an AA benefactor in Malaysia.
