conservative circuits. Many are calling for President Bush to change the
Clinton policies that put women into combat areas. And well he should.
However, those who value the role of women as mothers and nurturers, have
already lost the next generation who are enrolled in the indoctrination camps
called public schools. Women in combat and other politically correct thoughts
must be taught in all schools requiring students to take statewide or national
assessments." (Real News 24/7: Bush should have changed Clinton's

afterthought. That he didn't shows restoring the military is not an

"This was the profession that we had chosen.
There was no
'weeping.' There was no hand-holding. There was no commiseration and support
in any conversations with either our ship-mates or our superior officers. At
such times, each carrier pilot looks deep into his own soul and asks, 'Do I
still want to do this?' One knows that he has become one of a band of
brothers when the answer comes bubbling up from the depths of one's very soul
- YES! A loud, booming, resounding YES! It is at that moment that a man knows
that he has become one of a band of brothers.… It is almost a blood bond. It
is almost genetic. It is strong. It lasts for a lifetime. And it is real. It
is not a band of sisters. And it is not a band of brothers and sisters. It is
a primal bond that looks to nature for its explanation. It is a 'civilized'
human condition. It is a 'warrior' tradition."

predominance of my military career in Combat Arm's units, which remain

ROTC, and I must confess that my fears have for the most part been confirmed.
To begin, it is a myth that there are no women in combat roles…A
warrior ethos among our female soldiers is almost nonexistent. As the
potential of our current deployment increased, I noted a strong, angry even,
resistance to the possibility that they would be expected to deploy, and
What kind of nation sends women into combat?
"The ridiculous spectacle of rescued POW Pfc. Jessica Lynch, the feisty,
ballyhooed warrior of the Army’s 507th Maintenance Company, which was
early on in
Iraq, occasioned the usual war whoops. Yet no one asked a simple question:
What in heaven's name was a hundred-pound girl, barely out of pigtails and
high school, doing in a combat zone?"

Soviet women in combat The first
modern nation to extensively utilize women in combat was the Soviet Union
during World War II, when an nearly 60,000 of them fought in the Red armed
forces (above, left). As a Communist country, the idea of women soldiers was
consistent with Marxist-Leninist ideology, which heaped contempt on
traditional morality. These enemies of God considered (as do their
contemporary counterparts) the de-feminization of woman essential to achieving
the radical quality of the sexes espoused by Karl Marx and other Communists
Since the 1960s, many of
their anti-Christian social goals have found their way into the social fabric
of the United States: Legalized abortion, day care centers (which help
destroy the family
pushing women out of their homes and into the workforce) and "no fault"
divorce all were first tried by a modern nation when Soviet social engineers
deemed them useful in communizing Russia. (See "Toward
the Total State" for quotes from a modern Marxist acknowledging these
as victories.) Today they have be successfully advanced and perpetuated, in
the name of feminism, by those promoting a closet Marxist agenda, from
(right, author of the poisonous Feminine Mystique and co-founder
of the National Organization for Women) to Hillary "It takes a village"
Clinton. (See, for example, "Hillary's
global village" and "Parenthood
or the village?") Putting women in combat is simply another
aspect of the same evil, an evil which, if not checked, will further prepare
for the dissolution of the American Republic and our country's entrance into a
Soviet-style global tyranny.
