The feminists who are pushing to get women in combat call it an equal rights issue. But it's not. The Army Physical Fitness Test has already been degraded. For example, men must do 72 push-ups, women only 42.
The author of this frank and informative book calls for Congressional hearings that include testimony from men who have really fought in direct hand-to-hand combat: veterans of the battles of Fallujah in Iraq, Vietnam vets who participated in the Tet offensive, and Korean war warriors. The horrors of these men's experiences as fighters should be a wake up call to Congress (only 1/4th of whom have ever served in the armed forces) and to the public that has been misled by Hollywood portrayals of female warriors.
This author, Robert Maginnis, says, women in combat is not good for women, not good for America, and not good for the world. It will degrade our ability to defend our country. The name of this helpful and timely book is Deadly Consequences: How Cowards Are Pushing Women Into Combat.
