Women In Combat? Congress By-Passed!

Posted January 26th, 2013 by Iron Mike

No matter what your personal opinion is on the role of women in front-line Women in Combatcombat – Obama again has broken the law.

He’s ignored our Constitution.
We should be used to it by now.

From Article I, Section 8
[enumerates the duties of the Congress]:

To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a longer Term than two Years;

To provide and maintain a Navy;

Equal WarriorsTo make Rules for the Government and Regulation of the land and naval Forces;

To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions;

To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress;

In our recent wars – Americans have come to accept our battlefield supremacy – with engagements measured in hours, days – weeks at the most, – like the take-down of Fallujah.Fallujah

Now as Obama deliberately weakens our military – ending DADT, ordering women into combat units, and cutting our forces through the gimmick of sequestration – we are setting the stage for another Bataan, another Kasserine Pass, or another Task Force Smith.

Worse for our military – and our country – we’re seeing generals and admirals promoted – and firedfor their political views – and their willingness to go along with this morally bankrupt despot.  Soon we’ll have a military hierarchy as spineless as we had by the end of Vietnam – full of risk-adverse ‘public servants’ – not crafty warriors.

DuckworthFeminists and liberals won’t care.  They want to see women advance through the ranks – decorated for combat valor – and thus qualified equally with men for high military and political office.

Somehow they ignore the price that must be paid. 

Yes, I have strong feeling on this.  I’ve seen women in combat.  They were incredibly brave, they hung in there, – but damn-it, OURS shouldn’t be there representing a country of over 310 million Americans.

We have enough men [at least we used to] to fight our battles and leave our current and future mothers safe at home.

Combat is nothing like being a policeman.  You don’t go back to the station at the end of a shift – then go home.

It isn’t a sport you can regulate with Title IX to make it ‘fair and equal’. 

By definition, there is an enemy trying to kill you – looking for your every weakness, – your every inattention, – your every distraction.

Don’t tell me “The Israelis do it – why can’t we?”

Simple:  the Israelis have only 7.7 million people – they have their backs to the sea, and they’re surrounded by 200 million hostile Arabs.  We are nowhere near that desperate.

Our military ought not to be a political tool used by a rogue pResident for his political ends.

ASK YOURSELF:  WHY is Obama both weakening our military AND trying to disarm our population?

    . . . on Fallujah . . . Congress needs to be reminded that Fallujah WAS a great success – swift and decisive – but that with the “cease fire” that followed it the summer of 2005, the Insurgency took it back, so that when our Marines returned in 2006, it was more deadly and dangerous than it was the first time.

    In fact, we lost many more Marines the second time around . . . among them my son. This is a bitter pill to swallow when you see the successes made in combat undone by a complacent and spineless body of legislators representing a nation of people who have long forgotten why we even bother to defend freedoms the world over. I remember the women of Iraq holding up “blue” fingers in a V for Victory Jan. 31, 2005. I wonder if today, in 2013, they still have voting rights . . . .

    A liberal muslim homosexual ACLU lawyer professor and abortion doctor was teaching a class on Karl Marx.

    “Before the class begins, you must get on your knees and worship Marx and accept that he was the most highly-evolved being that the world has ever known, even greater than Jesus Christ”

    At this moment, a brave, patriotic, pro-life Navy SEAL champion who had served 1500 tours of duty and understood the necessity of war and fully supported all military decision made by the United States stood up and held up a rock.

    “How old is this rock?”

    The arrogant professor smirked quite Jewishly and smugly replied “4.6 billion years, you stupid Christian”

    “Wrong. It’s been 5,000 years since God created it, If it was 4.6 billion years old and evolution, as you say, is real…. then it should be an animal now.”

    The Professor was visibly shaken and dropped his copy of Origin of the Species. He stormed out of the room crying those liberal crocodile tears.

    The students applauded and all registered Republican that day and accepted Jesus as their lord and savior. An eagle named “Small Government” flew into the room and perched atop the American Flag and shed a tear on the chalk board. The pledge of allegiance was read several times, and God himself showed up and enacted a flat tax rate across the country.
