Should women be made to register for the draft now that congress has OKed them for combat?

    The military brass wants women to register for the draft

    On first thought I would have to say yes, can't have the best of both worlds
     
  3. Maybe they should have the members if Congress volunteer their children first.

    No. If the draft comes back, its bad. It wouldn't be a time to be politically correct. Letting women sign up for the draft sounds like the right thing to do, when its not needed. But if a war was bad enough to draft, lives are being lost quick. Would the PC people be ready to bury hundreds or thousands of dead 18 year girls? I wouldnt be ready. My son can go, not my daughter.

    But they just can't have it both ways---either they can be totally equal or not. No one wants to see 18 year olds, male or female, drafted anymore but what's fair is fair.

    Do the women set up the cots and heat up the MRE's?

    I say let the women fight the next wars by themselves----- us guys haven't been able to win one since WWII (through no fault of our own). --its their turn to try.

    These two women have gone further than most men in military training. I bet there are a lot more who could do it too.

    He strikes me as more of an Air Force kind of guy. The navy has its tough jobs too.
