Parker hits mark on combat women

  • Article
text size: AAA

I never thought I would agree with anything Kathleen Parker wrote. But I have been proven wrong; She is right -- women do not belong in combat. Kathleen, your reasons were sound and your logic was true.

Woman are equals to men when it comes to courage, skill, patriotism and dedication. They also excel in intelligence. But when it comes to brut strength or aggressive tendencies, we take a back seat to men.

Equal pay for equal work -- yes. Woman should not be striving to be equal in all avenues. We are different biologically, and as Kathleen wrote, " ... that should be celebrated rather than rationalized as incorrect." Lifting the ban on women in combat is wrong. I urge Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and General Martin Dempsey to rethink this directive.
