Ok. Gotta admit. This girl was a BEAST!

unclesamsmisguidedchildren A photograph taken in IReland in 1972 of a girl shooting from the gun of her fiance who was wounded in a battle against the British Army. Her wounded fiance survived after being transported by car to a safe place while his girlfriend clashed with British soldiers until she was killed. When the commander of the English soldiers found out that they were fighting a woman, he ordered his soldiers not to touch her body and allowed the Irish to bury her. They heard the English commander repeat this sentence: "We defend a queen who doesn't care about us, And this woman care about her lover and her land." The photo was chosen for Women's Day in Ireland and they wrote this sentence: "Don't be afraid to be associated with a strong woman. The day may come and she'll be your only army."

Wow.  When I say this girl was a beast I mean that in the very best way possible.

Want to push the agenda on women in combat?  Unfortunately you really have to point to organizations that we would (have) considered to be terrorist to find the best examples of warrior ethos.

As far as the fight she was involved in?  Can't really say.  I don't know enough about the issues surrounding the fight to say one way or the other.
