Women in Battle?

The Pentagon has announced it will remove the restriction on women serving in combat. This doesn’t mean that women will be in the infantry and armor and artillery right away. But that will be the ultimate end unless cooler heads prevail. This grotesquery follows logically from the progressive phantasm that men and women are the same and we should stop acting like they aren’t.

Will the opposition party say anything in opposition to this very bad idea? Or will the response be, “Yes, dear”?

This will be doubtless talked over extensively in the coming days. But allow me to be the first to state succinctly what I hope will be the conservative position on this very bad policy, to wit: A nation that hides behind its women’s skirts (pant suits) will not survive long. Nor does it deserve to.
