Leon Panetta announced today openings for women in Combat roles. I wont copy and paste anything. Those who know the news, Know. My question, and I have zero expertise here I guess would be mostly for our veterans. How do you feel about it? From my perspective..... When I call a cop, I want a big brawny man with a gun, not a five foot female. If I am in a bar brawl, I would want guys, not women on my side. The men I have been blessed to know would have a hard time going on fighting if a woman were wounded. Are you taught to just go on fighting and come back later? Would most men be capable of not coming to the rescue? I think women can do lots in the military, but my thoughts are, they lack the strength, the stamina, and the ability to detach their emotions. I think women can do lots of physically hard jobs. I just have the feeling this isnt one of them. Please expound. I worry about the safety of men, in the military. I know there are some bad ass women out there, I just wonder if any are bad enough.
