  •  I don't think that is what he was saying (0+ / 0-)

    The first thing I thought of was this:

    You know, the Israelis... they tried women in the 1967 War.  Female soldiers.  It seems the men couldn't get used to the sight of women blown open and their viscera hanging from tree limbs.  Israeli men would linger over wounded females -- often to the detriment of the mission, often endangering their own lives.  They don't use women anymore.
    Of course, that's a line from a movie (G.I. Jane,) and if this is accurate then it's also apocryphal.

    •  Never happened (0+ / 0-)

      Israeli women were never in combat.  There was never a plan for them to be in combat.   I happened to be a member of a military unit that studied women in the military.  Israelis never had women in combat simply because allowing women to be killed or maimed would reduce the expansion of the population.   No he was talking about sex.  Haven't you heard these morans talking about the problems with homosexuals becoming sexually aroused during combat?  

      My social security, medicare and military retirement are EARNED benefits. The checks Paris Hilton and the Waltons receive while sitting around the pool are entitlements. Don't let the Republicans confuse you.
