Women in the military now means women in combat. This idiotic trend is growing in acceptance, but then given the dumbed down and apathetic nature of the average American, how could any be surprised?
“Women now make up 14 percent of the Army. Over 100 have been killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. Now they are getting body armor specially designed for them.” According to Fox News:
Female soldiers from Fort Campbell deploying to Afghanistan will field test the first Army body armor that is shorter and better tailored specifically to fit women’s physiques. Members of a female engagement team from the 101st Airborne Division, who will be directly interacting with Afghan women during the coming deployment, have been equipped with the female prototypes of the newest generation of Army tactical vests.
What kind of country, and what kind of people, would send its young women, many of them teenagers and mothers of young children, into harms way to be killed or maimed for the state? Who would purposely send their young daughters into a combat zone? Who would subject young women to horrible rape by their own male counterparts? “For men, combat experience is the leading cause of PTSD. For women, it is sexual assault!” Naomi Wolf wrote a very telling article this year concerning the cover up by the political class and military of rampant sexual assault on women in the military taking place today.
To answer the question above, only cowards would send women into combat to die for the state. Only a citizenry that is completely void of compassion, and without morality could subject young women to the horrors of war. What country sends its women to die in combat, and to be raped by their own in the process? The United States government does, and with the blessing of its pathetic populace.
There is constant talk of the abuse of women around the world by Americans. There is constant criticism and hate by these same holier-than-thou Americans of the Middle East for its treatment of women. So why is it that the U.S. sends its women to die in combat, and to be raped in the process, but those hated by the U.S. do not? If our make believe enemies did send their women into combat, they would surely face the same risk of rape by American soldiers as do our own. Hypocrisy it seems, has no bounds!
By my count, over 150 American women soldiers have actually been killed, and over 700 wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan alone. But just in 2011, there were almost 3,200 reports of rape of women in the U.S. military. That means that a U.S. female soldier is hundreds of times more likely to be raped by her own than killed by any so-called enemy. What does that say about the supposed most powerful “Christian” nation on earth? I think it says it all!
