re: When will women be required to register for Selective Service?


quote:
If we had excess men they wouldn't be allowing women on the front line ... or did you miss that point??

quote:
Wrong. This is purely a political issue, not a practical one.

The whole fukin thing is political genius.

quote:
The lower/higher average of the total has no bearing on the front line averages.

quote:
Wrong.

You sure as h3ll gotta explain how this could possibly be wrong. Who cares about the averages of those in the offices when the people on the line are getting shot at. I sure as h3ll didn't.

quote:
You are arguing front line duty. This is about selective service we are talking .... if they allow women on the front line. If they have to start the draft again they could could put those drafted women in the positions that the pansy arsed boys were in before they were sent to the front lines.

quote:
So let me get this straight... take trained people out of their jobs, replace them with untrained females, retrain the old support people to perform in combat during a conflict. Awesome idea...

Remember this?? quote: Those panzy arse office boys are needed and most of them could be used to do some heavy lifting if needed. They are all trained to kill ,,#1 lesson in basic. Heavy lifting is lifting a phuquing M16. Training some chick is a REAL tough thing to do. yeah right!!! awesome ignorance....


quote:
There physical and mental standards are already there. Lowering/raising the average on the front lines doesn't matter BUT you missed the point of the thread.

quote:
The standards are not there. I explained that there are unwritten, unquantifiable standards that are not currently tested. This breathing room exists for several reasons, among them is that it has always been assumed that combat soldier s would be men.

The above is just plain stupid ignorance. It's a crock of 2hit. Where da phuque do you get this from??? If you have any experience with the military please don't let me know. I can't believe anyone that wore a uniform would say this bull2hit.

I'd love to know what % of women would argue this point as obsessively as many of you.

Your comment proves it is true. We aren't using a draft in spite of the woes you cite.

It is politically impossible to institute a draft for an unpopular war. And we will never have a war where it is necessary and feasible.

quote:
CT is absolutely right. We are not short. In fact we have been cutting joes left and right. College degrees will soon become mandatory for promotion to SSG and SFC in combat arms fields. The army is moving towards a small war configuration.

We send wounded men back for several reasons. They volunteer, they are already trained, and their experience is invaluable. They also stay in because of the bonus money and the benefits. You are clearly uninformed on the issue. If you want to know then ask someone who can tell you.

uninformed??? Bwahahahaaaaa. ... dudes, you have no idea. Get a clue. You are so totally phuquing wrong. I can't begin to tell you the stories of the guys on my block, let alone the family members I have both active duty and retired. They didn't ask to go or go back. 2 of them got out because they didn't want to get sent back for NUMBER 4 dickheads. They went back for 2 and 3 because enlistment wasn't up. What about using Army reservists??? That never happened before. Please go learn something about this subject before you attempt to tell ME about it. I'M PHUQUEING IN IT DUMMIES!!!! Do what I do now. Visit some of the wounded. They will put you wise to current circumstances while enjoying the visit. They like to talk. I guarantee you will learn.

Selective Service registration for women would drastically increase the birth rate in this country. Number pops up and they don't want to go... Am I wrong? Not only that...but it would piss off a lot of mommas all over the country.

I think that is likely based an observation of women already in the military. Planned parenthood at its finest.

And fathers on that note. Unless they had a number come up too. I might invest in an orphanage if that happened.

Like my buddy IN THE NATIONAL GUARD being SENT back after they pulled shrapnel out of his back? Oh wait, he didn't volunteer.

Like my neighbor's son getting out after 8 years in April. He has been 3 times and is getting out ONLY because he don't want to go back in country again. Or the lady that just moved in down the street, 1 year over there and doesn't want to go back. ... or her husband, scout sniper, 2 tours and a 3rd coming soon if he re-enlists. He gets out soon. Maybe my cousin, major in tank battalion ... ? There are MANY more.

Well, I asked and I was told. Now get out of that gov't bought chair and away from the pansy azzes. Go talk to the grunts.

Draft 'em into the WACs

Wikipedia: General Douglas MacArthur called the WACs "my best soldiers", adding that they worked harder, complained less, and were better disciplined than men. Many generals wanted more of them and proposed to draft women but it was realized that this "would provoke considerable public outcry and Congressional opposition" and the War Department declined to take such a drastic step. Those 150,000 women who did serve released the equivalent of 7 divisions of men for combat. Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower said that "their contributions in efficiency, skill, spirit, and determination are immeasurable".

Is there a magic phrase that can convey my disinterest in having a conversation with you on this subject?

I have capitulated. In the face of you purely anecdotal arguments. I wither like a leaf. Please, for the love of god stop talking at me.

Have a good night.

I never knew anyone who went to Canada to avoid the draft during the Vietnam War but I do remember a lot of deferments with guys with low lottery numbers.

I got no problem with legal loop holes. They had to pass to stay in and ended up with an education. I know a few of those. I just don't have much good to say for those that were dodging the draft other in some other manner.
