Former Female Marine Drops Bombshell About Women In Combat

Conservative Tribune

While the political and pop culture elite of America seem to approve of allowing women to assume any ground combat role in the military, some female veterans oppose the plan entirely, believing it to be detrimental to military success.

One of those veterans, former U.S. Marine Jude Eden, released a statement wherein she criticized Defense Secretary Ash Carter for allowing women in combat roles. With that decision, Jude says, comes the inevitable: requiring women between the ages of 18 and 26 to register for the draft.

“The question of drafting women exposes the lie that violent, offensive direct ground combat is an equal opportunity — career or otherwise — for women,” Eden told The Daily Caller in a statement. “Now we’re left to deal with the fallout of the Obama-imposed doublethink.”

Eden went on to state that lawmakers and military leaders are wrongly making policy decisions based solely on the number of women who volunteer and enlist, not on the millions who don’t. Instead, she says they should base their decisions on the numbers of women not in the service.

“The draft is precisely why this has never been about ‘a few women who want to,'” Eden said. “You make policy based on the 99 percent of women who don’t volunteer to serve, not a tiny fraction of the already tiny fraction of women who do volunteer.”

The issue of requiring women to sign up for the draft has already entered the House docket. Republicans Duncan Hunter and Ryan Zinke introduced a bill this week that would require women between the ages of 18 and 26 to register.

In an op-ed piece in August 2015 for The New York Times, Eden expounded on the reasons why she believed the presence women in combat is detrimental.

“Commanders of co-ed units know too well the added burdens of trying to juggle sexual dynamics, accommodations, relationships, fraternization, rape, pregnancy, hygiene and much more while maintaining troop welfare and good order and discipline, let alone mission accomplishment,” she wrote.

She further iterated that entire units would be at risk as a result of career advancement agendas.

“These are the liabilities that can result in mission failure and high casualties in the combat units, all to satisfy a tiny group of women selfishly petitioning for their own career advancement,” Eden stated.

Jude Eden could not be more correct in her assertion that women simply do not belong in combat roles not only for the reasons stated, but also for the issue of the draft. Is America truly ready to let its daughters be forced into military service if the draft is ever again required?

The United States is in danger of losing whatever shreds it has left of defined gender roles in society. With this “equality” comes certain negative side effects that will be difficult to swallow for millions. Lawmakers and military leaders are listening to a few talking heads that are not the voice of America.

While both genders are equal in their importance, they each serve very different and important purposes. This has been true for thousands of years. Why now is America trying to redefine that?
