Elaine Donnelly on Women in Combat on National Review Online: "Forget feminist legends about Amazon warriors and push-button wars. The modern land-combat soldier carries weapons and high-tech equipment weighing 50 to 100 pounds, with body armor alone weighing 25 pounds. Such burdens would be disproportionately heavy for average female soldiers, who are certainly brave but shorter and lighter, with smaller hearts and bones, 25 to30 percent less aerobic capacity for endurance, and 40 to 50 percent less upper-body strength. "
This is reality. Women do not belong in combat. The Bible forbids it, and common sense is appalled by it. Why kind of men will send their women off to war?
