USMC likely to request to exclude women from the infantry!

Thanks to William for the link!

via Wall Street Journal (sorry guys its behind a paywall)...
In a summary of the findings, the Marines cited a 1992 presidential report that concluded: “Risking the lives of a military unit in combat to provide career opportunities or accommodate the personal desire or interest of an individual, or group of individuals, is more than bad military judgment. It is morally wrong.”
Then this...
“The brutal and extremely physical nature of direct ground combat, often marked by close, interpersonal violence, remains largely unchanged through centuries of warfare, despite technological advancements,” the Marines said in a summary of the research findings.
Want the rest?

Pay the Wall Street Journal or...simply wait.  The report is so provocative that I'm sure other news outlets will be beating down the door to reprint it.

Amazing isn't it.  The wisdom of MARINE CORPS GREATS like Colonel John Walter Ripley hold up through the ages.  Where some (yeah I'm talking about those bastards at USNI Blog) choose to dismiss the wisdom of those that came before, on this blog we will listen to their counsel.  We will read and reflect on their words.
