This is the third time I have had to point out to you that I have made no comment about rape in the military.
Why do you Liberals often resort to insults when you can't defend your positions?
Please, don't be small.
Why do you Liberals always resort to insults when you can't defend your beliefs? Please, don't be a little man.
This bit of news may put you in a rubber room, considering your views against guns especially semi automatic weapons and fully atuomatic weapons.
Hold on tight, Israeli men and women carry these type of weapons around in public! Think about that. Beter yet, look at the pictures for yourself. Even Israeli women wearing bikinis!
Be carefull what you wish for.
"Hot Israeli chick with gun occupies internet"
"Bikini pictures aren’t uncommon and neither are pictures of guns; but put them together and you’ve got everyone’s attention."
"Israel's Haaretz newspaper, which picked up on the viral photo, wrote that "To an Israeli, the photo makes perfectly practical sense. When soldiers take their weapon off military premises, they must guard it closely and keep it on their person, at all times. Having one's weapon stolen is harshly punished with time in military prison a given. "
"Haaretz also concludes that Israelis are "used to seeing guns in all kinds of places - propped up next to the guy sitting next to us in a coffeeshop, or in a university classroom, and of course, slung over the shoulders of women soldiers." That apparently also includes the shoulder of a woman ready for an afternoon at the beach."

You might want to read that article again, "you're not quite up to speed on how women serve in Israel.."
Nothing there to contradict what I have written. What is going on there would not be much different than a female U.S. National Guardsman patrolling our own borders.
Vigilance is one thing, combat is another.
Again, the U.S. has a larger pool of capable men to fight our wars than necessary. We don't need every body to hold a weapon or stop a bullet. We can select and train the best and the fittest.
There is no man made global warming and therefore there is no problem. There is not an answer for a non existent problem. I do not snap my fingers because there are no tigers around my area.
You believe man is causing global warming so what are you doing to cause global warming? Please be specific.
Rut Roo, the sky according to the kooks might have stopped falling!
"Extreme global warming seen further away than previously thought"
"OSLO (Reuters) - Extreme global warming is less likely in coming decades after a slowdown in the pace of temperature rises so far this century, an international team of scientists said on Sunday."
Women are not fighting in infantry units mountainlaurel.
Israel learned the lesson the hard way in the forties. Israel is a small country with a small population. Israel needs every able bodied person so Israel uses women to train men but they are not fighting in front line infantry units.
Tell me about the wars Denmark and Norway are now engaged in and their success over their enemies using women in combat.
You are quite gullible.
You are entrenched in Liberal la la land.
Where are these women in combat you speak of?
Please tell me why the standards to pass Army basic training are so low and different for women than men.
So, in the modern "be all you can be" Army a 17-21 year old female only has to do 13 pushups (I did not mistype) 47 situps and run (even walk) 2 miles in 19:42 seconds to pass basic training.
What a joke!
And this is after 8 weeks of training to get them up to that ridiculously low standard!
For the first time only two women marines sign up for the course to become infranty officers.
One droped out the first day! The other after two weeks ( undisclosed medical reasons).
"The first-ever women to enroll in the Marine Corps’ difficult infantry officer course have both been dropped before successfully completing the 13-week program."
"In a statement to Marine Corps Times on Tuesday, an official confirmed that the second of the female Lieutenants was pulled from the program last week because of unspecified medical problems. The other Lieutenant dropped out on September 28th, after failing to complete the first day of training. She was joined by 26 male participants, out of only 109 enrollees in the grueling course."
