SOCOM trigger pullers speak about Women in the infantry...just like everyone else they're too late.

Thanks to Joe for the link!

U.S. special operations forces worry that integrating women into the military’s most demanding combat jobs will deal a blow to their effectiveness, result in lower standards, and possibly drive men away from serving in the positions.
The revelations come in a survey, first reported by the Associated Press, that was released in full by the Pentagon last week in timing with Defense Secretary Ash Carter’s announcement that all combat jobs would be opened up to women despite recommendations otherwise from the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
The survey, conducted by the Rand Corporation last year, solicited voluntary responses from over 7,600 men serving in Navy SEAL, Army Delta, and other commando units. Approximately 85 percent of the respondents said they oppose opening special operations positions to women, and 70 percent oppose having women in their individual units.
More than 80 percent answered that women are not strong enough to handle the demands of the job.
The new details of the survey, some results of which were reported by AP earlier this year, follow the release of a nine-month study conducted by the Marine Corps which found that women perform worse than men in combat operations.
Quite honestly I'm past caring.  I view the military that we see now as something new.  Puller was wrong.  There is a difference between this new Corps and the old one.

What has me pissed off the most is that while I was taking the lumps and being called all kinds of things, the likes of USNI Blog with Haynie as the ring leader pushed an agenda and everyone remained silent.

So to all the Grunts, SOCOM bubbas etc....fuck you all.  You should have spoken up sooner.  Instead you kept your head down.  

This is what happens when you lack moral courage.  You played it safe so now deal with the consequences.  The time for outrage and to speak up was well before the SecDef made his decision.  Now they'll toss a few bonuses at you while the social experiment is conducted.  I'm not a complete ass though....I hope you survive it.
