Leon Panetta, aka Old Whiskey Breath, Defense Secretary, is removing the ban on women fighting on the front lines in battle. I have no problem with that if that’s what the gals want to do, but I do have a problem with it if it becomes mandatory. Men don’t volunteer for it, they’re sent there and that’s that, but for women it should be voluntary, and before anyone starts bleating that I’m being sexist, allow me to point out that wars are created by men, not by women. If there’s one single case in human history where a woman has declared war by her nation on another nation, I’ve never heard of it.
Something that also concerns me, NOT, but the thought is funny, is, will the Army commission the manufacture of Military Strength condoms, you know, like Prophylactic Condom Milspec 4a5.12 Mod 7? And if they do, will the homosexuals who are now starting to proliferate in our armed forces demand them in sexually stimulating colors, like Day-glo Pink, Africa Black, Rimjob Red and so on?
Will there be a “Don’t ask, don’t tell” policy on married service personnel having sex with the unmarried, or anyone with anyone, or will sexual liasons be overlooked entirely?
There will be new policies put in place as the ladies mix in with the guys and Nature takes its normal course, and the generals get all upset and make new rules with various penalties for the first time and the second time and the third time and …… I mean, they already have a bunch of that for affairs between officers and enlisted, who are not supposed to fraternize anyway. The idea of that is to keep the enlisted’s respect levels up for the officers, but it works in reverse because the officers get so arrogant and conceited that the enlisted lose all respect for them. Anyone who’s been in the service can tell you that. What they have is respect for the uniform but most of the officers can go take a flying fuck.
On the destroyer I served on, we had a new ensign come aboard who was queer as a $3 bill. How he made it through OCS, I have no idea, because his condition was obvious, but he didn’t last out a week aboard the Vogie (short term for our ship’s name) before he was on his way again as a civilian. Our Executive Officer, just below our Captain, was also a closet queer but he liked it both ways and was married to an actual female. We all knew he was queer by his behavior, and I suppose our skipper did too because he didn’t like the guy at all, and Mary, as we called him, ended up screwing up his first command so badly after he left the Vogie that his career was ended. We had one other fairy, a black guy, very handsome, but queer as hell, who lasted a few months before he was caught with a couple other guys doing what they shouldn’t have, and all three were booted out of the Navy.
My point here is that when you have a military unit of all one sex and all of them are heterosexual, everyone is focused on taking care of business instead of diddling each other. But as soon as you add sex to it, distractions, jealousies and rivalries and all manner of silly crap start interfering with the smooth interaction of trained warriors. Including dumb ass crap like bickering over condom colors. You watch.
What excuses are going to be made over the brutalizing of our women soldiers held prisoner by Muslims? Over the torturing and mutilation of our women? How will that be dealt with? It just gets stupider and stupider.
