    If women can handle the job and want the job, I suppose they should be allowed to do it, everything else being the same. There may be some tough and capable women, but everything else is not the same.

    What if women are captured by the enemy, which is much more likely in a front-line combat role.

    Look what happened to Private Jessica Lynch in 2003, raped by enemy troops.

    Do we really want to put our young American women in that kind of harm's way. Or are we going to send special forces on a rescue mission every time a woman is captured in battle by the enemy.

    Personally, I think it's a bad idea.

    The Soviets used women on the front lines, but we're not the Soviets.

    "Equality! Equality!" they scream.

    But what if they simply cannot do the job?

    It isn't their fault if they can't. 99% of women are simply not physcially as strong as men. That isn't "sexism", that's called "reality".

    Put the BEST soldier in the job. Period. Anything else is rubbish.
