Still Think We're Not Finished?

CAMP ZAMA, Japan – The Army is ordering its hardened combat veterans to wear fake breasts and empathy bellies so they can better understand how pregnant soldiers feel during physical training.

I don't care who you are: If you think this makes for a better combat fighting force you've lost sight of what an army is for... It's there to overcome the enemy, killing as many as necessary in the process, and destroying enough of their infrastructure to force submission.

Forcing your combat veterans to wear foam boobies (maybe the officers get higher-priced silicon ones) while training is a good indication that our military leadership no longer understands its mission. Obviously we have way too many generals that think a Tampax is a vital piece of combat equipment.

An M1 Abrams tank is not designed to make a pregnant woman feel better while she's driving it, it's designed to obliterate the enemy.

Using the military as a place for social experimentation is not a sane strategy for any nation. The totally Socialist Israelis - Well known as great experimenters in social engineering - tried putting woman into combat situations awhile back - proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that women make terrible solders - but it seems our military hasn't learned a thing from that disaster.

Way too many of us have read fantasy/sci-fi stories where woman were the great heroes and the tough fighters of the day... and forgot that they were indeed stories of fantasy and fiction.

Oh hell yeah... she'll save the day...

Take today's video games. 90 pound child/women with 18" waists, giant eyes and very adult bodies are victorious over massively larger enemies with incredible weapons, speed, strength and endurance. Fine and dandy if you're living in a make-believe world. Games like that should come with a disclaimer:

WARNING: Don't try this is real life. You will die.

Keep that nonsense where it belongs: It will not - and does not - work in the real world. And above all: Keep it out of our military.
