When Cpl. "S." came upon Cpl. Netanel Yahalomi, she knew he was finished. "I ran under fire until I reached Netanel, but when I saw his condition, I told my commander there was nothing we could do to save him and we must move on,” she said. Cpl.

Imagine that - another article about how females are great fighting machines. The propaganda will continue relentlessly. There will be a few new TV shows featuring smart, strong, gorgeous female soldierettes who are much more competent than their male counterparts (who adore them of course). The revolution marches forward.

Israeli women are always the example for ´´women in combat/infantry´´ proponents. What few bring up is that these women enter compulsory military service shortly after completing high school and seldom devote their ´´career years´´ to active duty military. The whole point of Israeli military service is that everyone serves and is available for recall in times of national peril.

Most importantly (to my mind) is that the Israeli soldier is fighting for his/her own country. With almost zero exceptions, the Israeli soldier does not serve in any other field of conflict. I´d bet a buck that if any able bodied and firearm trained American woman/mother had to defend her home, she would do it in a minute. As a mercenary? Not so many...

Women in combat? OK by me, but don´t lower the standards one iota. If they can´t cut it, out they go. I´d be curious to see how many could make it through Marine Scout Sniper training or BUD-S.

No great Army has ever allowed females in combat. None. Whenever a nation has used females it´s only been because the men have been killed off or are in very short supply. Canada and Israel are not valid examples of "great Armies." Israel has the advantage of always fighting a genetically stupid enemy in their local proximity.

Females don´t have the strength to carry on the fight. A one time shot maybe, but not day in and day out.
All this will do is degrade the high standards expected of men, so that the little girls can pass muster. It will make the U.S. military into a bunch of wimps and a laughing stock around the world.

Never ever forget that liberals LOATHE the military.

Have at it ladies. Just don´t expect real men to serve alongside. If there are any of those left. Also, to be fair, women should register with selective service and we should get rid of all the Rules of Evidence and laws that provide special treatment. No more extra maternity leave or custody preference. Gender equality at last!

After 26 years together, Little People, Big World stars Matt and Amy Roloff have separated – but they won´t be far apart. "Though we have weathered many storms together, we recently made the tough decision to engage in a trial separation," they tell PEOPLE exclusively.

In case you missed it, Senate Democrats staged an all-night talkfest on Monday to promote higher taxes and increased government regulation to address the scientific theory known as “climate change.” Hopefully you did miss it, because most well adjusted people have better things to do than stay up all night watching a bunch of senior citizens talk about solar panels and wind turbines. At least one person was paying close attention: liberal billionaire and reluctant democracy advocate Tom Steyer, who has pledged to spend $100 million backing Democrats who support aggressive government action to reduce carbon emissions. Democratic senators want Steyer’s

During the all-night Senate speech about climate change, Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., said he drove to Hawaii as a teenager. "I just do want to say that right after I turned 17 and got my New Jersey driver´s license, one of the earliest places I drove was a trip — the only trip I have ever taken was to Hawaii," he said on the floor at about 3:00 a.m. "You didn´t drive to Hawaii," Sen. Martin Heinrich, D-N.M., said, correcting the freshman senator. Booker laughed weakly. "I did not drive to Hawaii," he admitted. "Thank you for that clarification, I

John Kerry — The ridiculous face

With a face like this, is it any wonder we are the laughingstock of the world? To be fair, Secretary of State John Kerry started out at a considerable disadvantage. His long, narrow face — with those sad, sunken eyes — has often been compared to that of a horse. Perhaps a starving draft mule retreating with a family from the Dust Bowl during the Great Depression. That, along with what he says when he opens his mouth, has long made him an easy caricature of a perfect buffoon. Mr. Kerry will, of course, go down in history as the

It may take years before investigators determine exactly what happened to Malaysia Airline Flight MH370. But the conspiracy theories are already flowing freely. The facts behind the plane’s mysterious disappearance make it ripe for theories that range from the plausible, like pilot error, to the outright bizarre, like alien abduction. The Boeing 777 en route to Beijing vanished early Saturday morning, along with its 239 passengers and crew. Investigators say the flight veered off course for more than an hour with all of its tracking systems turned off. Dozens of ships and aircraft from nine nations have launched a search and rescue

WASHINGTON – The Food and Drug Administration said Tuesday it approved a nerve-stimulating headband as the first medical device to prevent migraine headaches. Agency officials said the device provides a new option for patients who cannot tolerate migraine medications. The Cefaly device is a battery-powered plastic band worn across the forehead. Using an adhesive electrode, the band emits a low electrical current to stimulate nerves associated with migraine pain. Users may feel a tingling sensation on the skin where the electrode is applied. The device is designed to be used no more than 20 minutes a day by patients 18

Europe Makes a Stink About
American Cheese Names

Errico Auricchio produced cheese with his family in Italy until he brought his trade to the United States more than 30 years ago. Now, the European Union is saying his cheese isn´t authentic enough to carry a European name. As part of trade talks, the EU wants to ban the use of names like Parmesan, feta and Gorgonzola on cheese made in the United States. The argument is that the American-made cheeses are shadows of the original European varieties and cut into sales and identity of the European cheeses. Auricchio, president of Wisconsin-based BelGioioso Cheese Inc., says he has no idea what

Could this move by the Crimean parliament start a war between Ukraine and Russia, and perhaps involve Europe and Turkey? Or could it be a possible way out of an impasse that allows all sides to walk back from their positions? The legislators of the breakaway province voted to pursue independence if a scheduled referendum on Russian annexation passes as expected this week: The Crimean parliament voted Tuesday that the Black Sea peninsula will declare itself an independent state if its residents agree to split off from Ukraine and join Russia in a referendum. Crimea’s regional legislature on Tuesday adopted a “declaration

You have probably seen all of the ridiculous speculating about the GOP nomination in 2016. This is still speculating, but my sincere hope is you don’t think it’s ridiculous too. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is laying the foundation for his presidential bid in concrete and steel. First, forget about Jeb Bush unless you want to hand Hillary eight years in the White House. The latest Rasmussen poll shows her leading Jeb in a general election 47 percent to 33. His name is Bush and to the general public the specifics of how smart he is doesn’t matter one iota. Then there’s Ted Cruz,

Without an obvious frontrunner to represent Republicans against Hilary in 2016, one thing is guaranteed: It’s going to be an entertaining race. Contrary to conventional media wisdom, this week’s CPAC proved Republicans are likely going to put a formidable team on the presidential field in 2016—and they’ll have at least one advantage going into the election: Their primaries are going to be much more interesting, dramatic and entertaining than the Democratic primaries. This means Republicans are going to soak up a whole lot of press coverage and attention while the media and voters largely tune-out what is likely to be a

It seems only fair to post Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s response to the foofaraw started by the quote I posted about below. McConnell tells my friends over at Truth Revolt that he is not attacking the Tea Party at all. Rather he feels that the Senate Conservatives Fund is a fake, pretending to support conservatism while undermining it.(Snip)There are things that McConnell has done that I disagree with strongly, but he is definitely NOT a RINO — that’s just unfair.

We saw more hints of the coming clash between Rand Paul and Ted Cruz this weekend, when (as predicted) Sen. Cruz criticized Paul’s foreign policy, painting it as dovish. (On Monday, Paul obliquely fired back.) But that wasn’t the only example of elbows being thrown on the right. Paul’s victory in the CPAC straw poll was at least partially stepped on when the Senate Conservatives Fund (Cruz allies who hate Paul-endorsed Sen. Mitch McConnell) released the results of their competing straw poll, creating confusion and serving to dampen the enthusiasm of Paul’s victory. And we were also reminded of the nascent Cruz-Palin

The maker of Sam Adams beer announced Friday that it is withdrawing its sponsorship of Boston´s St. Patrick´s Day parade because organizers exclude gay groups. Boston Beer Co.´s decision came a day after a bar in Boston´s South End said it would no longer serve Sam Adams beer because of the brewer´s affiliation with the parade, which is scheduled for Sunday. Mayor Martin Walsh and U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch have been trying to broker a deal that would have allowed a gay group to march, but those negotiations broke down.

Secretary of State John Kerry warned of serious repercussions for Russia on Monday if last-ditch talks over the weekend to resolve the crisis in Ukraine failed to persuade Moscow to soften its stance. Kerry will travel to London for a Friday meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov ahead of a Sunday referendum vote in the Crimea region to secede from Ukraine and join the Russian Federation. U.S. and European officials argue that Moscow is orchestrating the referendum and waging an intimidation campaign with thousands of Russian troops controlling the region.

Fertility is the missing chapter in sex education. Sobering facts about women’s declining fertility after their 20s are being withheld from ambitious young women, who are propelled along a career track devised for men. The refusal by public schools’ sex-education programs to acknowledge gender differences is betraying both boys and girls. The genders should be separated for sex counseling. It is absurd to avoid the harsh reality that boys have less to lose from casual serial sex than do girls, who risk pregnancy and whose future fertility can be compromised by disease. Boys need lessons in basic ethics and moral reasoning

U.S. investigators suspect that Malaysia Airlines 3786.KU -4.08% Flight 370 stayed in the air for about four hours past the time it reached its last confirmed location, according to two people familiar with the details, raising the possibility that the plane could have flown on for hundreds of additional miles under conditions that remain murky.

US officials believe that two communications systems aboard Malaysian Airlines flight 370 were shut down separately, 14 minutes apart - which indicates the plane did not come down because of a sudden catastrophic failure. The data reporting system was shut down at 1.07 am and the transponder was turned off at 1.21 am just after the the pilot signed off to Malaysian air traffic controllers with ´All right, good night,´ and before the Boeing 777 apparently changed course and turned west. According to investigators this indicated that the switch-off could have been a deliberate act and officials told ABC News that the

Will Darrell Issa say he’s sorry? House Democrats again targeted the controversial Issa on Thursday, with a bid to force the California Republican to publicly apologize for what they dub his “repeated history of abuse” toward the minority party. Democratic Rep. Dan Kildee (Mich.)’s resolution condemns Issa for repeated clashes with Democrats – exchanges Kildee said don’t live up to the responsibility of a committee chairman.

In case you hadn’t heard, young people these days — a.k.a “the Millennials” — are the most cynical and distrusting generation ever recorded. Only 19 percent think most people can be trusted. According to a big study from the Pew Research Center, they are less attached to marriage, religion, and political institutions than Gen Xers, Baby Boomers, and the other demographic flavors journalists love to use. They like their friends, their digital “social networks,” and their toys, and that’s about it. Not even a majority will call themselves “patriotic.” Probably more dismaying for liberals: Of any living generation, they are
