I suppose in the final analysis, it really doesn’t matter what I think about ‘Women in Combat’ – it’s now about to be the Law of the Land. But I think this series of “social experiments” we are seeing, especially in the military, are bringing about significant ‘unintended consequences.’
If a woman is qualified for combat “on merit,” then I have no problem with women in combat. ‘Merit’ is the key, and our standards should not be compromised to meet the goals of initiatives such as this.
This being said, one of the “unintended consequences” here is, with the institution of this policy, all women will now have to register for Selective Service at age 18. I wonder how that’s gonna work for Barry and his homies?
