THEY SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED!!! Women are not allowed into combat for many reasons, an example is below, while they are being shot at and blown up, so weren't many in WWI, WWII, Vietnam, Korea, is the nature of the beast that a mortar, artillery, sniper, IED, etc..will get someone who it is not intended for.

If they are tough enough to do it I don't see why not.

I think if they want to the should be able to. As long as they know what they're getting into.

no because the natural instinct of the male is to protect a female which would undermine the effectiveness of the troops she was fighting with

If one's survival is at stake, who would say you can't fight?
Answered By: rph098 - 12/12/2008
No question - they should. If you are reduced to hand to hand combat to survive everyone better be there fighting.

Probably a bad idea even though many are just as brave and can handle pain better than a man- childbirth. Its' the physical strength issue- look how many women cannot escape a r**e, although they can be trained to increase their odds significantly. Then there is the extreme likelihood of r**e after capture. Some young... More

Just thinking of the Canadian Forces and many others, including the UK forces and Israeli forces, sex is not a determination of abilities. The best people for the job are put into place.

I'd say no. If a terrorist country gets there hand on a female soldier then it would be much worse for them. Woman have a better chance of getten snatched by a terrorist. But I do think we should be taught the same stuff and all that. They might as well teach us to defend ourselves.
