the first line, the army still practice most of the world. But the U.S. military is trying to break the female soldiers in the army in a variety of restricted areas. Following the February 24, after the Pentagon approved the female on the submarine, February 28, Agence France-Presse, said the Army also intends to lift the women to participate in ground combat against the ban. This is despite the feminist supporters cheered the victory, but the RAND study shows that most of the female which does not appreciate, this is only the United States to expand manpower measures.
U.S. officials want the female to the front
Agence France-Presse reported that the Army Chief of Staff George Casey told Congress, to re- look at women in Iraq and Afghanistan war time status. Because, despite existing regulations allow women to stay away from the U.S. ground war, but in Iraq and Afghanistan, female and male soldiers often at the same risk, where roadside bombs and the “base” organizations, other attacks can occur at any location . U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates also tend to change this policy. Pentagon officials acknowledged that “in fact many women soldiers in combat every day, they may be a helicopter pilot, perhaps the doctors and support staff … …”
was serving in Iraq, retired Army Lt. Col. John that Iraq and Afghanistan wars will be American women in the military operations in the watershed. Ground combat reality sooner or later will participate in ground combat against female regulations were abolished.
U.S. military is almost the highest degree of openness to the female troops. Reported that the 1990s Gulf War to promote the performance of female soldiers in the initial reform, the U.S. military opened up to women fighters and naval warships positions. Submarine was one of a small number of restricted areas. But this restricted area has also been broken. Reuters reported on February 24, prohibits the Navy to end the U.S. military service women in the military provisions of the submarine on the decision, next year will see the first female in the nuclear submarine service. In 2008, a female U.S. soldier to be awarded is a historic 4-star rank of general.
national female little direct war
with the U.S. military’s plan is different from most of the world still insist on keeping the principle of women to participate in front-line combat . Germany received almost complete ban on women in weapons-related military service. Currently about 3,000 Bundeswehr soldiers female, about 1% of the total number of armed forces, but they only served in the medical unit and other departments. Even Israel’s severe shortage of manpower, but also does not allow direct contact with the enemy female. Israel is a very small number of mandatory military service of women in the world. But about 3.6 million female is mainly responsible for the administration, maintenance, guidance and health care, they can be a tank instructor, but not directly participate in combat or on patrol in the occupied territories.
Russian women are not allowed to participate in the same battle. Although the Soviet female snipers during World War II to the great anti-Nazi forces, but at present the Russian Army in the 30,000 female soldiers are not fighting skills in this area, they are mainly in the arms of motorized infantry and a number of professional military service. Russian Navy with submarines, ships and flight crew received the relevant professional female soldiers are not only female medical staff on board.
female U.S. soldiers do not want on the battlefield
the U.S. military in the women’s liberation movement will undoubtedly lead the world, but in fact the United States for these women in the military. ” results “are not grateful. According to the RAND study shows that most American women in the military opposed to them elevated to the same positions as men, especially after the completion of training will oppose them sent to combat units. The report said, “Frankly, this is an unexpected conclusion, especially considering that female pilots can fly in the Air Force attack planes and fighters, and even intercontinental ballistic missile in military service.”
analysis that the prohibition on women serving in several positions on the one hand, because these jobs requires a great deal of physical and psychological endurance, not suitable for women’s work; the other hand will increase the cost of accommodation and health, for example, for women in the nuclear submarine soldiers to provide premises, not only on the carrier than the cost of stalls for women beyond the hundreds of thousands of dollars, but also the accommodation area of ??nuclear submarines to adjust. The prohibition of women to participate as first-line combat is to prevent and combat troops captured female soldiers morale and to prevent female soldiers killed in action after the cause of family problems. Therefore, the increasingly tense situation in the manpower, the U.S. military intends to allow female soldiers to the front may be a frustrating choice. ▲ (Sui months) (“Global Times” March 2, 2010 8th Edition)
