Army opens combat positions to women
Men in the military are being thrown into the meat grinder, and when invariably bad incidents happen when men and women are thrown together in stressful (or boring) situations, men will be thrown under the bus. The Pentagon is a bunch of perfumed princesses seeking to appease the feminists in control. What more evidence do men in the military need that their leadership hates them? After all, if there is a serious lack of qualified men for these positions, then maybe we can make military service more popular by limiting imperial misadventures overseas. And if there isn't a lack of qualified men, then how can we justify their displacement by women in the name of facilitating their career advancement and a better representation of women in the military? What a joke. Soon any true patriot will have to avoid anything to do with the National Government, which does not serve the common good but actively seeks to subvert it for private interests.
