The Center for Military Readiness reveals the destructive agenda behind putting women in combat

☆astac☆~PWCM 2013/01/28 06:50:12

As CMR’s report rightly notes, this turns the entire purpose of what the military is supposed to be about on its head. Diversity is not being pursued to improve military readiness as much as it is being pursued to improve the career chances of what amounts to a handful of women in the higher echelons of the military command structure. As a result, the military is prepared to embrace the circular reasoning of “diversity metrics” designed to obscure the genuine differences that exist between men and women, in order to reach predetermined outcomes that allow more women to be assigned to combat units. This in turn enhances their prospects for career advancement, which will undoubtedly be used as rationale to promote the idea that no real differences exist between the sexes.

Thus we get the essence of radical feminism, the idea that man and women are equal in every respect, even if it means “fudging” some realities to get there. As the CMR’s report reveals, that’s exactly what the Pentagon has done, noting that physical capability tests measuring common skills “have been scaled back from six to three and adjusted to reduce physical demands and improve women’s achievement scores.”

The CMR report goes on to outline many drawbacks of women in combat, but the most significant aspect of it concerns a test conducted by the Marines to evaluate whether women could meet the same physical capabilities expected of men. They intended to collect data from 90 women as part of the evaluation process, but only two volunteered to be part of the grueling Infantry Officer Course at Quantico, Va. Both women failed to pass it. Speaking to Front Page, Donnelly reveals that several sources have given her information about the other aspects of the test. Yet she notes that the results of the test have not been released to the public, despite what Leon Panetta said yesterday when he officially announced the lifting of the ban:

Women have shown great courage and sacrifice on and off the battlefield, contributed in unprecedented ways to the military’s mission and proven their ability to serve in an expanding number of roles,” Panetta said at a Pentagon news conference. “The department’s goal in rescinding the rule is to ensure that the mission is met with the best-qualified and most capable people, regardless of gender.

“If the tests conducted by the Marines confirm what Panetta said, then why haven’t they been released?” wonders Donnelly. “And if they don’t, then what is he doing?” Both questions deserve an answer, yet one suspects that the Obama administration has already provided it. Leon Panetta is a lame duck on his way out. As a result, the likelihood of him having to explain anything—including his role in the Benghazi debacle which this latest action pushes even further below the media radar—is virtually nil. Furthermore, putting women in combat has obscured the far bigger issue: this president’s appetite for naked power grabs is getting out of hand.

Elaine Donnelly reinforces that argument along with her own contentions in a statement released recently:

Following orders from President Barack Obama, lame-duck Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has recklessly announced unilateral nullification of direct ground combat exemptions that are important to the majority of military women who serve in the enlisted ranks. Secretary Panetta has excluded Congress and the American people from the decision-making process, and imposed a radical ‘diversity’ agenda on our military without disclosing the data and results of extensive research on the subject of women in land combat that the Marine Corps conducted last year. Congress should insist on seeing data gathered during the Marines’ research, and conduct immediate oversight hearings before harmful policies imposed by the outgoing Secretary of Defense become de facto law.

Thanks to the Left’s slanderous “war on women” campaign, which has paralyzed rational debate on such matters, don’t count on a single member of Congress rising to the occasion.

    Dude, if a woman wants to fight, she should be able to. Whether she is physically able to or not is a different matter, but if she meets the standards, she should be able to fight. In entering the front lines of a war zone, she understands what she's getting into, that she might die, or lose her legs. Despite that, if she still wants defend this country, why shouldn't she?
    Now if we can get rid of the gender based draft because that stuff is BS (personally, either get rid of the draft altogether, or draft everyone fit to fight).

    Proportionately, there are probably not enough women officers. Promotions come a lot quicker in the combat arena.

    They had better be careful what they wish for. You can't have things both ways.

    Women are a great asset to our military, but not in a combat roll. All it will take is to start getting female war casualties. The public will be horrified when our women start coming home with missing limbs, faces burned off, etc. Then, it will be too late. I say, "be careful what you wish for". PANETTA IS A PUPPET FOR OVOMIT...WHO IS A PUPPET FOR OTHER COMMUNISTS.

    We've seen how these lunatics treat their own women , The thought of what they would do to ours is unthinkable and to think they are not craving at the opportunity is pretty far fetched. The bounty for capturing an American lady probably has increased considerably and to add the extra pressure on the battlefield is ridiculus, especially at a time when the imposter is set on having the Military to a sitting duck level in the first place.

    I think many women are exceptionally capable. The trouble is separating the wheat from the chaff. I would like to see women in combat positions who are above the age of 45. Yeah, I know laugh........but I would die for my family and to ensure them a future. I've lived. Now let me in combat (and I'm an excellent long distance shooter) and I will have absolutely no fear because I would a 'personal' interest and nothing to lose.

    Very well written . My personal belief is this ................
    IF a woman can pass ALL qualifications " ALL " without having those qualifications LOWERED to make them pass " , more power to em' .
    IF however the tests are dumbed down and qualifications lowered Just To Get Women Into Combat .............. It Is DANGEROUS to all others in her unit !

    I think if a woman can qualify under the existing rules and wants to go into combat, she should be able to. BUT, I don't think the rules should be changed to appease the women. As far as the rape is concerned, a male can also be raped, (they raped Amb Stevens) GANG RAPED him.

    I wouldn't care to go into combat myself, but kids are being raised differently today, and women have taken over, in so many areas, and if that is what they themselves choose, I guess we really don't have the right to hold them back. As far as the rape is concerned, you can be raped, at home, in your own bed.

    Well of course men and women can be raped while serving in the military. But if we have men and women trained to fight in the army, then they're also trained to defend themselves from rapists (doesn't mean that soldiers can't still be raped, but it's a bit of a safety measure to start).

    1. UK Television Presenter Sir David Attenborough: "We are a plague on the Earth. It’s coming home to roost over the next 50 years or so. It’s not just climate change; it’s sheer space, places to grow food for this enormous horde. Either we limit our population growth or the natural world will do it for us, and the natural world is doing it for us right now"

    2. Paul Ehrlich, a former science adviser to president George W. Bush and the author of "The Population Bomb": "To our minds, the fundamental cure, reducing the scale of the human enterprise (including the size of the population) to keep its aggregate consumption within the carrying capacity of Earth is obvious but too much neglected or denied"

    3. Paul Ehrlich again, this time on the size of families: "Nobody, in my view, has the right to have 12 children or even three unless the second pregnancy is twins"
