Of Politics and Plants

The ones that I viewed are Merry Tossmas and Of Politics and Plants. But from what I gather from other people, there are many more there that are equally as fun. Check it out.

It’s not theoretically against the law for women to die in war; what is unethical is for the army to place them in harm’s way intentionally, against regulations.

This illegal, inappropriate behavior on the Army’s part- is what Elaine Donnelly talks about at The Center for Military Readiness, here.

Controversy about the Army’s “anything goes attitude toward women in land combat has gotten worse. As the Center for Military Readiness has been reporting since 2004, Army officials have been redefining and circumventing regulations regarding female soldiers, without authorization by the Secretary of Defense, and without the legally required advance notice to Congress.

This is outrageous, considering women like 2nd Lt. Tracy Lynn Alger are dying for no good reason.

She was in a direct ground combat-collocated forward support company – a battalion level unit that is required by current Defense Department regulations to be all male.

Read the rest, but what I warned in my letters to the editor and to my elected officials back in the 70’s – about “equal rights” eventually putting women into combat…has happened. And it’s happening dishonestly; through the backdoor.

I suppose the point is…women will die in war as long as they’re working with the military, but we don’t have to be STUPID about it, and put them intentionally in harm’s way alongside the guys who are physically up to the task of carrying a full battle rattle, etc.  It’s putting our men at unncessary risk, too.  War is hard, tough, and physically demanding.  Put the people who are best-suited for the job at the front, and put the girls who don’t have the upper body strength to carry a wounded fellow soldier-where they can do the most good.

Men and women, as I talked about at Cao’s blog, are not physically equal.  Weight Watchers recognizes the difference, and the difference is observed in competitive sports and body building.
