The Marine Corps lowered standards for Marine Infantry Officers....the Ground Combat Element is DEAD!

Thanks to William for the link!

With no notice and little formal explanation, the Marine Corps altered one of its notoriously grueling rites of passage late last year, changing the combat endurance test on the first day of its Infantry Officer Course from a pass/fail requirement to an unscored exercise.

Officials with Marine Corps Training and Education Command confirmed to Friday that Marine Corps Commandant Gen. Robert Neller had made a decision in November to transform the test from a high-stakes hurdle to an assessment from which students can drop without risking their place in the course.

While officials said the test has had a historically low attrition rate since it was made a passing requirement in 2012, the change stands to have significant implications for women attempting the course. Of the more than 30 female officers who have attempted IOC, most have dropped during the combat endurance test on the first day.
Story  here.

Full disclosure.  I'm bitter as fuck over this.  They TOLD US that they wouldn't lower standards.  The proponents over at USNI Blog and other advocacy spots informed us that they just needed a chance, not lower standards.  The BUBBAS IN LAW ENFORCEMENT AND FIRE DEPTS warned us that this was on the way.

But I held out a small amount of trust that Neller and Dunford (the Commandant and Chairman of the JCS...both Marines) that they weren't lying.


Now we see why they're pushing the Squad Support Vehicles so hard.  They know for a fucking fact that they've RUINED the combat power of the Infantry..the conventional infantry (oh you son of a bitches in Special Ops just wait...this shit is coming your way and you might win 99.9% of your fights against terrorists but the feminists AND the faggots that claim to be men will send frontal after frontal attack against you and bust your lines!) and the Ground Combat Element of the United States Marine Corps is NOW DEAD!

I guarantee that not only is there confusion in the ranks about the mixed messages being sent (on one hand women can assault enemy position and be effective teammates and on the other they need protection from sexual assault???) but there is no effort being made to explain this...or to actually prepare the force for the change.

A nation has been weakened and these fucking generals know it.  Have fun at the cocktail parties now you son of bitches cause I don't want to see any emotion when you're burying someone's little girl cause you put her in the meat grinder.
