It seems likely now that in 2016 all American women ages 18-25 must register for the draft or face the consequences.
The Supreme Court has ruled in the past that women needn’t file for the Selective Service, commonly referred to as the draft, because they were excluded from combat duty. They can join the army voluntarily, but not be forced to join it. The Obama administration has now instructed the military to prepare women for all kinds of combat just like men. This has already begun, and the test period will end on January of 2016.
At that point, Obama will declare that the military has successfully made women combat troops. If so, it is anticipated that those who want women drafted will apply to the Supreme Court and win their case. All women 18-25 years old will therefore have to register for the draft.
I want a military that can defend me against ferocious and large male soldiers. Also of concern, when women are drafted into the army against their will, they will be in a situation where we can assume that about 10 percent will be raped. On November 16 of this year, the New York Times had a front page article from a law professor about the rape of 10 percent of American college women. There are almost never convictions and women are afraid to complain.
The government countered with laws that forced colleges to lower the standards of proof for rape. The accused then countered with lawyers who are specially trained to defeat convictions made without proper proof. At that point, not only do women have a small chance of sustaining their charges, but the hate between men and women grows.
The following is a from a report released by the US Marines on October of 2014:
“Interim CMR Special Report − October, 2014 — US Marine Corps Research Findings: Where is the Case for Co-Ed Ground Combat?”
“This is an Interim Special Report on the multi-phased research effort, initiated by Marine Corps Commandant General James Amos to gather quantitative data identifying the physical strength requirements of combat arms units. The goal is to find ways that women can be integrated into the combat arms without lowering standards. Researchers are finding this difficult (actually, impossible) to do, owing to naturally-occurring physical differences that make men significantly stronger…To date, 20 female officers attempted the extremely tough course but were not successful…Nothing produced by the research so far indicates that women can be physical equals and interchangeable with men in the infantry. Nor is there any evidence that women want to be treated like men in the combat arms.”
The future of America is on the line. Do we sacrifice our military for the radical feminist lobby? And since when does a government force through a measure opposed by the military to satisfy politicians?
A reporter in Afghanistan with American troops noticed a boy soldier, someone very small. He approached the soldier and saw that it was a woman. Now, the enemy soldiers over there are very large and ferocious. Who in his right mind would send a “boy-sized” soldier to fight such people? If these “boy” soldiers are captured over there, the lucky ones will be beheaded.
In Iraq a senior officer inspected the front line troops. He walked and walked and nobody intercepted him. Finally, he stumbled upon two soldiers, male and female, who were not busy with warfare. The new army will be filled with unwanted pregnancies, rape and such things.
The great scandal is that Congress has not called hearings on this. Everything is being carefully stage managed to produce the extreme wishes of the radical femininist lobby. And it is women who will die first because of this policy.
Correction – This column previously indicated “all women” could be required to register for the draft beginning in 2016. In fact, only persons between 18 and 25 are required to register for the draft.
