Nothing anyone's saying is giving me a reason to allow them into combat. A female I asked said they shouldn't. Among other reasons, one of hers was "What happens when it's that time of the month and they're in combat and haven't got what they need on hand because they weren't expecting to be out the...

Women volunteer and join the Army. They're soldiers, in the same boat the men are. If they don't want to risk fighting, and not being able to take care of their families in the future, they shouldn't join. Women are not in the same boat. They are not allowed in combat. They join right now knowing t...

My favorites are:
NES (All Stars Baseball, Contra)
SNES (Rock & Roll Racing, and the choices of RPG's)
N64 (Goldeneye)

My overall favorite would be SNES. Had fun with more games on that one than the rest.

I am not sure what sort of a soloution you could get once already enlisted in the military. I don't know what you are referring to on this. I am simply saying if you are already in the military and don't want to be involved in a war - you are screwed. Men join knowing theres a chance they can go to...

Unfortunatly, from my understanding, being in the military involved a great deal of "do what we say to do" and not, "do what suits you". You're abolutely right. I gave two solutions, one was what could happen if women didn't have a choice. That's one reason women should not go to combat in the firs...

Because not everyone in the military wants to go to combat. So far I've been in the military for 5 years. I've been stationed in three different countries. I've known hundreds of soldiers. I've known two that volunteered to go to Iraq/Afghanistan. Two out of a few hundred, is not enough to carry ou...

Look, i feel that the conversation is breaking of into little tangents. I simply said regarding women in combat "If they want in - they want in" - now is moved to men not being able to be non combatants, which im sure is incorrect. Conciencious objectator is one title given to non combatants that i...

Not all women want to go to combat. .... Well, I'm a male, why don't I have the choice? I am not across the rules of all <any> of the military rules such as that, but i don't see why that should be a problem. Regardless of gender if you want to be a non-combatant, thats fine with me. I don't see wh...

Where did you read me mentioning forcing anyone? IF they want in AND IF the military will take them - then that is the only 2 parties that need be concerned. Men are forced into combat if they are in the military, just so you know. Now, we'll examine this as if women are already in the military , s...

It the military will allow them and they want in - well what obvious reason not to? And don't say they could get killed, that is a risk everyone in the military is aware of. Not all women want to go to combat. Then why'd they join the military you say? Because they aren't even allowed to go to comb...

Here's some statistics. http://arts.uwaterloo.ca/~pjc/courses/soc222/Lecture_8.pdf That is for Canada, where there is a specific driving force at work: the Young Offenders Act, which I strongly disagree with and which guarantees perpetual anonymity for youth criminals who are convicted of crimes, n...

In the UK, there is no law on when a child can be left home alone. I coul;d leave my 17 month old toddler at home, and although I could be charged with neglect, there isn't a specific law that I've broken. It is unclear to me how it is possible to be charged for something even if you've broken no l...

The media is fickle. A black female soldier was captured at the same time as Jessica Lynch in Iraq, and got no publicity, no media interviews, no made-for-TV movie about her "heroic" travails, nothing. And do you remember Scott O'Grady? The pilot who made national headlines for going down in Bosnia...

It's just my belief that they shouldn't be in combat. Either way, if they're going to end up in combat, people need to quit making a big deal about them becoming POW's and dieing. Must feel great when you're a male POW sitting in an Iraqi prison for a month while someone else is getting tons of publ...
