    It is just more prevalent in the military then it is in another type of job, thus women are taking a substantial risk when joining the armed forces.

    Pentagon to allow Women into frontline combat by 2016

    Just because the thirteen colonies originally came from England, does not mean that the USA is not different. The US is fundamentally different from Europe, in terms of politics, economy, culture, etc. I'm not even going to bother debating that. Racism was very dominant in the USA, because of...

    Pentagon to allow Women into frontline combat by 2016

    Resorting to insulting my avatar to get your argument forward? Classic. In regards to military segregation, you mentioned European countries, but this thread is about the United States. The US and European country's like France, England etc have fundamentally different cultures and history's...

    I responded to her reply with the same respect she gave me, which was none. I don't ignore people. Not a law, just a suggestion. If you where to have a debate with someone in person would you blatantly tell them to **** off because their opinion conflicts with yours? It reminds me of when...

    There is no room for profanity in a debate, it polluted what could have been a decent reply, into one I shouldn't have even bothered with.

    The military did keep racial minorities in their own regiments up until WW2 when racism started to go down they slowly integrated them with the others, it worked well. Why would the soldiers having sexual relationships be a problem when they are home? By all means let them, the problem is when...

    I know the pentagon is a government organization, but their are a few acceptations within the pentagon, such as the department of veterans affairs which most likely gathered this evidence and considering how much they do for military veterans I would not have a problem trusting them. There...

    I cant say much about the quality of training, but I have heard that the standards have been lowered in recent years. I would not trust the US military or any US federal organization, especially when it comes to statistics that may damage their reputation...

    I like the reenactment pictures in the video, the song is also great. Would love to hear it in L'aigle.

    Something other then what I have already posted on the subject?

    Pentagon to allow Women into frontline combat by 2016

    If i'm at a disadvantage I wonder why only a few people have bothered to respond to my arguments without including some sort of ad hominem attack, then completely disregarding my claim. I used the search button and found nothing in regards to my main argument (military rape) which I backed with...

    Pentagon to allow Women into frontline combat by 2016

    I stated my opinion, provided a source, with evidence, and facts. I was then insulted because of my views and told to look through a 40 page thread until I find something that debunks my entire argument. (I did look through about 10 pages now and have yet to find anyone mention the problem of...

    I should start getting used to sarcastic "jabs", that's all I seem to be getting while trying to have a logical discussion. As for the "keep your **** in check remark" I totally agree with that and I'm sure in some utopian fantasy their could be the perfect military soldier who is not at all...

    I read 3 or 4 pages before I posted. I'm not going to read a 40 page thread with roughly 600 reply's just to post in it, I guess some people have too much time on their hands.

    No, I'm not in the military because I want to achieve something with my life, not because I can't follow orders. You missed my first point, I never said anything about not letting women into the military, just separate them from men. Well if only that psychological evaluation actually worked...

    So ill just read through the 600 or so replys to this thread before I post my opinion, sounds like fun.

    http://lens.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/09/03/military-rape-enemy-within-the-ranks/?_r=0#/1/ 26,000 sexual assault cases in the US military where reported in 2012. Plus at least a couple thousand more that went unreported. Yeah, I'm living under a rock.

    If that's the case then men are becoming weak and cowardly. Any man who does not protect a woman in combat should not be in the military. I highly doubt that men will not be engaged in sexual affairs with female comrades, unless they are being watched 24/7. If you're telling me 18-20 year old...

    Pentagon to allow Women into frontline combat by 2016

    If women are going to be put into front line combat they should probably be separated from the men. Females should be put in female regiments to be kept away from males to prevent intimate relationships from happening. Knowing myself, if I was in the position of being without sexual contact for...
