How the Army Is Planning to Proceed

We've been talking on this program about the plan, for the first time in our nation's history, to send women into close military ground combat. Assigning women to close ground combat against vicious enemy troops creates a war against courageous enlisted women who have volunteered to serve in the military but don't want to be assigned to close ground combat while the Army is pretending they are equal to men. This plan also creates a war against 18-year-old girls who would be made subject to a military draft if this plan is carried out, because of a Supreme Court decision.

This order to assign women to ground combat means that the military will engage in all kinds of deceptions to pretend that women are passing the same tests that men are passing. The services will be required to introduce what they call a "critical mass" of women, expected to be 10-to-15%, into previously all-male units. The new orders will change all requirements that women pass the same tests required of the men by using what they call "diversity metrics." That's code language for female quotas. The Defense Department has recommended that a new Diversity Czar be appointed to monitor "diversity management." This Diversity Czar will be charged with the duty to ensure that diversity leadership is assessed throughout careers and "made a criterion for nomination and confirmation to the 3- and 4-star ranks." So, men, do you get what that means? Your promotions will depend on giving the feminists whatever they demand and pretending there is equal performance by males and females.

Gen. Robert W. Cone, who heads the Army's Training and Doctrine Command, said, "I think that fairness is very important in a values-based organization like our Army." But ground combat with evil enemies is not fair or equal; it is not even civilized. The only way to preserve tough standards for ground combat training, and maintain women's Selective Service exemption, is for Congress to reassert previous regulations exempting women from direct ground combat units.
