Women in combat

I think this is a good discussion of the problem of sexual assault in the military. It's from the ladies at the Independent Women's Forum (for those of you who don't know, IWF is a conservative women's group comprised of members such at Laura Ingraham, Linda Chavez and Christina Hoff Summers).

Of course, I do not condone sexual assault in any context. However, there is something to be said for recognizing the circumstances that lead to such acts and eliminating those circumstances. Although ladies do not belong barefoot and pregnant in front of the stove, they do not belong in combat boots in front of the enemy, either.
