    Most people aren't aware of this, but the United States women are not allowed in combat roles in the military. They are limited to non-combat roles, such as driving vehicles, establishing bases, and engineering, just to name a few. I for one am against this, I believe that women are every-bit as capable as men. Sure, most women may be physically weaker than most men, and sure it's possible they could go on their period in the middle of a mission, or a relationship may form between two soldiers, add on to that that males are often more protective of women than they are of other men, and terrorists like to torture females more than they do males (including rape and sexual abuse), plus terrorists think of women as inferior and are less likely to surrender to a female than they would a male.

    Despite these "drawbacks," I'm still completely for full rights for women serving in the US military. What are your thoughts on this?

    Del - I really do have to give you a thumbs up on this one. Females in the military has been an issue that's been chewed on for years.

    Women may not have been given "combat zone assignments" but they're sure as hell just as subject as males to mortar attacks, bombing, etc. whether in the kitchen, driving supply trucks, as they are on the battle front. The roles military women play are important - like seeing the troops are fed, supplied, healed, and probably a lot more less obvious roles. Women do not need to step into a man's body to prove they are intelligent, worthy, and "up to the job." Women are all these things in their own right. This was true way before the feminist movement got on the roll. The NOW and other "feminist" organizations have certainly laid a lie on some gullible women. Rabid competition with men doesn't prove a damn thing.

    Most people see women serving on TV and movies (i.e. Stargate) and think they have the same rights as men, or atleast most people I know.

    Also, in other countries women can serve on the frontlines in other countries. Women in Russia could since World War I.

    Most people are smart enough to know that movies and tv isn't real. Apparently, this is not the case with you and the people you know... I suggest you get smarter friends.

    How odd that women are currently serving aboard front line Naval ships, for example, yet the OP wants to claim that women are somehow held back. Also, women have been serving in forward medical bases since WWII, at least. Just because no women are in the first wave to hit the beach doesn't mean they haven't and don't continue to serve honorably and put their lives in danger just the same as men, they do.

    I agree: as soon as the Germans kick our asses from Baltimore to Kansas City, then wimmin should begin serving in combat.
