The only firm opinions I have last about ten minutes until I read another convincing opinion. What about all woman battalions? That would elicit shrieks from the feminists and the “anything you can do I can do better crowd.”
But seriously…women have been in combat and done well and shown skill and bravery. and, isn’t patriotism the guiding force to enlist and serve and fight for your country? How can one oppose that?
These are problems, to quote Tevye in “Fiddler on the Roof’ that would cross a rabbi’s eyes. However, civilians, clergymen and clergyladies should not make these decisions. They should be made by the military….by those who have been in the trenches…not arm chair generals among whom are some that could confront enemies but not resist the lure of lusty sirens.
And even among battle hardened marines opinions vary.
So let’s wait and see how PMS (pre menstrual stress) morphs into P.M. Mess.

In my column, “Obama’s Anti-Absolutism Club” article, in which I demonstrate just how smitten the Mainstream Media are with Obama, what I could also have highlighted was the lengths to which the MSM will go in the way [...]
http://sultanknish.blogspot.com/ The one thing that Hagel, Kerry and Brennan all have in common, besides being Washington insiders, is that they all agree that terrorism is basically a misunderstanding. All three fancy themselves men of the world who know more than the peasants back home because they have spent a few days being shepherded through high [...]
The future is Green Energy, they say. Like the Endurance Endurance Wind Power E-3120 50kW which made it through three years before being tipped over by a force that its designers could never have anticipated it would encounter.
The £250,000 tower, which stood as tall as a six storey building, was hit by gale force gusts of 50mph. The structure then collapsed at a farm in Bradworth, Devon, leaving a “mangled wreck”. Installed by renewable energy company Dulas it was supposed to have a life expectancy of 25 years.
They neglected however to maintain that 22 years of that life would be as a mangled rusting wreck that would exist only to make a mockery of everything that it once represented. Much like Al Gore.
This isn’t the first time a wind turbine has spectacularly failed. This video from Denmark captures the collapse of a Nordtank NKT 600-180/43.
Here’s one catching on fire.
Green clean sustainable energy. It’s the future. For three years anyway. Then it blows up and you have to replace it.
http://frontpagemag.com/2013/robert-spencer/boston-globe-instigates-robert-spencer-speech-cancelation/print/ While Christians face escalating persecution from Muslims in Egypt, Nigeria, Pakistan, Malaysia, Indonesia and elsewhere, the Catholic Church temporizes, ignores the victims, and plays at “dialogue” with Islamic supremacist groups whose announced intent is to “build bridges” with non-Muslims. Such bridges are really just proselytizing mechanisms to convert them to Islam, not an attempt [...]
http://frontpagemag.com/2013/davidhornik/israel-boycotts-un-human-rights-council/ In Geneva on Tuesday, the UN Human Rights Council convened to examine Israel’s human rights record. It did so under a mechanism called the Universal Periodic Review (UPR), supposed to apply to all UN member states. One country, though, failed to show up for the proceedings—Israel (reports here, here, and here; op-ed by Anne [...]
http://frontpagemag.com/2013/dgreenfield/syria-crosses-israels-wmd-red-line/print/ On Sunday, Israeli Vice Prime Minister Silvan Shalom told Army Radio that the country’s top security officials had held a special meeting and warned that the transfer of Syrian chemical weapons to Hezbollah would be crossing a line that would mean action. It was not the first time that Israel had warned Assad not [...]
http://www.nationalreview.com/blogs/print/339340 The Environmental Protection Agency has been demanding the impossible of refiners and then penalizing them when they fail to comply. A new ruling from a federal appeals court stops this shakedown. For the past few years, the EPA has required refiners to purchase vast quantities of cellulosic biofuel, which is made from non-edible plant [...]
http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/339315/chuck-hagel-israel-and-american-power-jim-talent Most of the debate over the Hagel nomination has focused on his views regarding Israel, and understandably so. The United States has a long history of strong support for the Jewish state. That policy has expressed itself in material aid to Israel, close partnership with the Israelis on defense and intelligence, public support for [...]
http://pjmedia.com/jchristianadams/2013/01/30/marco-rubio-better-answer-some-questions-first/ Republicans who support granting amnesty to foreign nationals residing in the United States illegally better answer some questions first. I have previously argued that warm and fuzzy feelings toward the GOP will not grow in minority communities simply because some Republicans accept as lawful what was once lawless. The racial interest groups such as [...]
