Latest Elaine Donnelly Items
Elaine Donnelly's commentary is correct, but the message continues to remain of the same vulnerable logic that liberals love to destroy: Women are not equal to men ("Why would Obama send American girls into combat?" Commentary, Nov. 21). In advancing the feminist agenda, there is no greater crown jewel with which to destroy that logic than via that most traditional and "macho" institution in the nation: the American armed forces.
Elaine Donnelly is on point regarding the politicians running the Pentagon, including the politically correct generals such politicians have bred ("Why would Obama send American girls into combat?" Commentary, Nov. 21). Such individuals will have to erode physical standards to put women into the infantry.
Public statements from the Pentagon since it removed the ban on direct ground combat jobs for women signal that the armed services plan to change their physical standards to ensure integration of the sexes, analysts say.
Publicly and privately, U.S. commandos are casting doubt on the sexual revolution looming over Navy SEALs, Army Rangers, Delta Force and Green Berets.
More military men than women are sexually abused in the ranks each year, a Pentagon survey shows, highlighting the underreporting of male-on-male assaults.

Retired Air Force Col. Martha McSally, who logged more than 300 combat flying hours, today is recalling how she took part in the Pentagon's last gender revolution, as the U.S. military prepares to open a new frontier for women — direct ground combat.
A new report to Congress predicts that relatively few women will be able to perform land combat tasks on the same level as men, and it says the Pentagon's pledge to maintain "gender-neutral" physical standards has a loophole.
The Pentagon is pushing ahead with its campaign to move women closer to the battlefield, despite a series of sex scandals involving senior officers and a report showing an increase in sexual assaults among the troops.
