http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2010/nov/29/women-combat-ban-remains I was talking about this with my gf, she agress with it. Basically saying that it is easier to bring the primal aspect out of a male than a female. And more so that male and female officers will without a doubt have sex, and a the primal protective issue could come into effect during combat. So in essence a male will lookout for a femal more so than other male officers. Im not a solider but Ive heard they train soliders into justifying killing their enemies by associating those enemies as people that would harm the soliders family and friends. That those people would kill rape ect family members of the solider, and by killing those enemies the solider is protecting their family and friends as well as their country. ... makes sense to me. I suppose. Obviously only one aspect of how soliders jusitfy their actions. I just found it interesting on the ban of females. I would have thought that the unit and objective were the most important aspects in any mission, all other concerns are secondary or insignificant. When I see a solider, I don't see the sex. I suppose it's different when you know your unit personally. .. I donno. Would be nice to hear from a solider on this one.
