I think the Israelis tried women in frontline combat units and it didn't work. Same with the Russians IIRC.

You are correct.

The problem with women on the front lines has nothing to do with their ability to do a mans job.

The problem is...Capture and torture!

The first time a woman is captured and pictures of her being gang raped, water boarded, and then beheaded show up in the media, how are you going to feel about women on the front lines then?

I'm sure when women are captured and held in the modern day version of the Hanoi Hilton, her captors will furnish her with a great big box of tampons to make her stay comfortable. Oh wait, they will probably just knock her up so they don't have to worry about tampons. Then she can give birth to an enemy bastard child and they call all live happily ever after.

Common sense is dead.

You're right. The American people will go apeshit if that happens. I mean it will be difficult not to "go medieval on their ass". I mean like massive airstrikes and possibly tactical nukes, and hence why it's always been a policy of last resort.

A lot of folks are talking out their butt. We have women in combat zones in all kinds of jobs. At any time they could have to defend themselves from enemy fire. It's not like they're going to run away and not return fire. Of course they will.
