Political appointee does what political appointees do

At least, it's what they do when they're appointed by Obama, and are nothing but dumb-assed political hacks who care more about their ideology than reality.

In a historic shift in policy, the Pentagon will open all combat jobs to women, Defense Secretary Ash Carter announced Thursday. 
“Our force of the future must continue to benefit from the best America has to offer,” Carter told reporters during a Pentagon press conference. “This includes women.” 
Women will now be able to help fill some of the 220,000 roles that are currently only open to their male counterparts — positions that include some special operations units and infantry — among other roles. 
The policy change will take effect in 30 days, Carter said.

This will lead to lives being lost on the combat field.  Combat is a physical activity.  Ignoring that fact in the name of political correctness will bite us in the ass.  On average, women cannot perform the physical tasks that men can.  It's not even close.

Oh, and by the by, this is a direct affect of allowing gays to serve openly.  Once the big push for political correctness was made, it was only a matter of time before this happened.  Allowing gays to serve openly in the military does not and will not improve combat effectiveness, but once people all nodded and applauded the social justice push of gays in the military, women in combat was the next logical step.

I'm glad I'm on the downhill slope to retirement.

Unfortunately, far too many of us who grasp the situation and its inevitable terminus are on that slope, or have already rolled off the bottom of it. We're about to leave the country to a mass of largely immature idiots.

Obama: "Ash I've got an idea. Why not open the Army so that the gals can serve in all the MOS's?"

Carter: Sure, what could possibly go wrong?"

Rope, tree; some assembly required.

Just wait until women start breaking after carrying mortar ammo or a .50 cal barrel. "SEXISM! MISOGYNY! PATRIARCHY!"

I think that since women can now do any job in the Army, we should drop the female PT standard and have only one PT standard Army wide: The male PT standard. You wanted the job? Fine. You had better meet my standards.
