Barack Obama and the liberal pansies of America have made it clear that they don’t care what policies hurt our soldiers in combat, as long as they promote “fairness and equality.” President-Elect Donald Trump and General Mad Dog Mattis have issued directives to military commanders in charge of forward combat divisions that will make those first into battle safer and more proficient.
Forward combat units will no longer be required to add women to their ranks just to make our armed forces look “more diverse.” Studies ordered by Senate Republicans have shown that women mixed into combat units slow down overall unit speed and get more people killed in simulated combat environments.
That doesn’t mean women won’t be able to continue to serve and fight, it’s just a shift from a mentality that our combat-ready forces have to include a certain number of possibly underqualified, not always the best for the job recruits to a policy that the best man for the job is who should get the job. If that man is a woman, then so be it, but the military is no place for “everyone gets a trophy” when so many lives are on the line.
Women have been approved for combat roles, which is fine. They make excellent support personnel. Some even do well as snipers. The occasional unit has benefited from the expertise of women who are every bit as good if not better than men as infantrymen. The notion that all units must diversify, however, is dangerous and will cost the lives of men and women in uniform.
Trump and Mattis, who will officially take over on January 20th, have ordered their future commanders to ready their divisions to be assembled according to ability without giving any preference to gender, color or religion. The issue of gays openly serving in the military hasn’t been addressed yet.
