The Marines, from what I hear, are also pretty angry about this. Look for a series of resignations and a decrease in re-enlistments as the women in combat deal policy holds. A lot of real warriors are going to conclude that there’s no reason for them stay in the service. Though the full effects won’t be known until a combat unit with women has to fight an enemy hand to hand, the new policy will, over time, cost many lives and severely damage our ability to fight without sacrificing a lot of our troops’ lives.
Tomorrow, Obama will begin the week’s SGO with his announcement of an immigration “reform” which, according to his favorite Republican John McCain, will be just like the one McCain tried to push in 2007. It will include a path to citizenship for illegal aliens and a lot more. Look for an early surrender by the Maginot Republicans in the Senate.
While we’re preoccupied — again — with immigration “reform,” Iran is busily propping up Syria, Israel’s red line on Iran is rapidly approaching, Hugo Chavez’s impending death will unravel his oil money-funded control of neighboring nations, and Republicans are kicking the can down the road — again — on the debt ceiling. Team Obama will be reinforced by Kerry, Chuck Hagel, and John Brennan after some senatorial huffing and puffing on their nominations.
The Washington Post is doing yeoman’s work, one op-ed yesterday claiming that Obama’s agenda isn’t really liberal.

As much as we would love to have one day off from the news, the flow of SGO is going to get a lot faster and deeper.

In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
