On Women In Combat

All of that to say: Women entering the Infantry is a hot button issue for me, not as an abstract policy decision, but on a very personal level.

I see this as an attempt to create social progress or make a social statement at the expense of those who put their lives on the line.

Pure and simple, it’s nothing short of self promotion… which is ironic given that Infantry units abhor the concept of the individual.

It is preached to the point of mantra that tightly knit teams win wars, while individuals get people killed.

h/t Powerline.

Sharing largely because his point #1 keeps getting ignored when I say it.
