  • Don't take life seriously; No one gets out alive

An Army Special Forces soldier said the qualification course at Fort Bragg, N.C., to earn the Green Beret is so demanding that the Army will have to lower standards for some tasks in able for women to succeed.


Well, why not [*spit*]............ the standards were lowered for the swim test because a certain "inner city demographic" said it was unfair to them because they "never had the opportunity to learn".
Well, that's BS. It's a freaking survival skill. It's something you need know before attending the course. And in the meantime, nothing is said about those who took the initiative and learned on their own.

Army Maj. Gen. Bennet S. Sacolick is a former Delta Force combatant who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. He knows firsthand the rigors of close-in combat. He appeared at the Pentagon last week representing U.S. Special Operations Command (SoCom) in Tampa, Fla., and he was decidedly cautious at the press briefing.


Oh mah Gawd! He wuz Delta Fawce! Well, I'll shine my boots likkety-split................ why don't htey call it by it's current name? "Delta Force" is so 90's. (It's now CAG...Combat Actions Group)

"If I throw a 70-pound rucksack on a student in a qualification course or in [SEAL training], it's because I anticipate he's going to have to carry that weight in combat," he said.



They carry more than that. 70lbs is just a basic load.
I wonder when the lies will stop and truth begin, even as grim as the truth may be. And then I remember that for 70 years, the reign of terror in Russia called itself "the people's government." We have so far to fall, yet we are falling fast and Hell yawns to receive us.

this will not turn out well.  Women do not belong in the special forces... , then this is just another way to destroy  fine military. The left is just ecstatic about it.

Exactly. The goal is to render the US impotent, by any means necessary.

Any and *every* means possible...

I and the women in my platoon trained along side men and standards were not lowered for us. I think in some cases they may have been tougher. I know personally that I did stuff that a lot of guys couldn't do. There was a thing or two I had to work harder on than maybe most guys would find easy but one thing I know I did better than a lot of guys was the shooting range. There were I think 4 platoons in our group us females and 3 male platoons. I scored in the top ten of all of us male and female. On the intelligence I scored a tie with one male for the top spot. They sure don't have to lower their godalamighty standards for females!

Of course my sisters an I used to practice by throwing a soda bottle at the side of the barn to rile up the bumble bees and then seeing who could make the most kills.
