Go here and read the Army Times piece.
Then read the money quote at the end, " Women who successfully complete Ranger School will receive a certificate and be awarded the coveted Ranger tab." The DAMNED outcome has been predetermined.
There is no way any woman is going to make it through the course unless
she is carried. If they force a woman through and pin a Tab on her, it
lessens the value of the Tab for every other Ranger School graduate who
earned his. If that happens, it will be used as a precedent to force women
into every other aspect of military life which ALL OF HUMAN HISTORY says
they cannot tolerate nor sustain. This will weaken the force over all.
Ultimately, that is what is desired
Girls do NOT belong in the Infantry. They damned sure don't belong in
Ranger training. There may be a bull dyke, out there in the world, who
could make it through the Ranger Course. This would be an exceptional
exception to the rule. Making national policy based on a one in ten
thousand exception to the rule is a recipe for disaster/suicide. Ranger
school is HARD for a reason. It tests the best and hardest of men.
Girls, by design are not HARD. Dear Lord we are having this discussion
because our National leaders are out of their minds.
Go here to look at a larger photo.
attended the course as a PFC from the First By God Battalion. I was
conditioned for it for over a year before I got my slot. It was hard for
me and on me. Not impossible, but hard. My body was broken down at the
end. It took weeks to initially recover and months to FULLY recover. I
had open sores which didn't heal until after I got back on solid food.
My endocrine system was interrupted to the point my nuts didn't function
for almost two weeks after graduation. I started the course at 175
pounds and graduated at 145.
A normal healthy woman is not going
to be able to handle this kind of stress. A woman is not physically, nor
is she emotionally, programmed to handle this kind of stress. It is cruel to
put women in this situation and LIE to them and say, "Go forth and be
the same as a man!" It is unnatural. It is sickening.
May God have mercy on us.
