Women in Combat

The idea of women in combat is not unusual anymore. They should be able to hold combat positions because although physical strength matters, the military still needs the intelligence that women can bring. Also, banning women from the combat hurts their military careers. Although women account for a very small percent of the enlisted personnel they are still a major part in the armed forces. Their performance recently has generated support from Congress and the public for enhancing the role of females in the military.
Women fall back on the old “unit cohesion”, “male bonding?, and “good order” rubbish that is left over from the Roman Empire. Its rather like saying that women cant play major league baseball because they cant spit, scratch and rearrange their cod pieces as well as the boys – regardless of whether or not they can throw a baseball from left field to third base. Units made of women and men have bonded, cohered, and maintained good order for centuries. Military units of mixed sexes have quietly maintained order, accomplished missions, and passed operational readiness inspections with flying colors. Theyre too busy doing their jobs to worry about which latrine to use. Desert
