It's about time the Pentagon recognized this--fair is fair. If someone is best qualified to do a particular job, then let them have that job--I have zero tolerance for any sort of discrimination. I bid the Defense Department welcome to the 21st Century.
Great for air power and other things. However not understanding that the military discriminates for other good reasons.
That is, that more times than not, a woman will not be able to keep up as a member of a Marine platoon in continuous combat.
Women have been great in the miltiary...for years.
Carrying full kit and a rifle in a USMC platoon... different. And not worth the effort to make that platoon less combat effective because someone can't carry the load.
Another example? Why are women not in the NFL?
