After a large debate over whether or not conscripts would be a viable option in the United States, it has become apparent that while many members on here would be in favor of mandatory civic service, no one wants anyone in the military who doesn't want to be.
The next topic in this area I want to cover is people who want to be in combat and aren't allowed - specifically - women. Being manly men, we are taught to protect our women. It is there for relevant that we consider to what extent we will go to protect them. Does this include disallowing them to do things they want to, because it is not safe. I want to propose that we change Department of Defense (military) policy that prohibits women from having combat roles. Right now a woman in the US Military is able to have a non-combat job and end up in combat, but she is not allowed to join the infantry or other combat-only roles.
My last post gave the wrong impression of my opinion - this is merely a stance I am taking to induce debate, my personal opinion is not a factor in the following proposal:
Where as, all woman in the military are deemed equals to their male counter-parts,
Where as, they incur equal-but-different Physical standards,
Where as, other countries currently allow women to fight in combat with minimal problems,
I propose that we allow women in the United States Military, of any branch, to serve along side men in combat roles such as infantry, artillery, and armor (tanks).
