Should women join the SAS?I apologise for hitting the send button before I had completed my response. To continue - if you are seeing the SAS as just another job that is It is nothing of the sort. Having consideration for wives and families is not a paltry scenario. as you say - far from it. There are countless numbers of men in military service who value a stable home to return and that in turn boosts morale and adds a sense of purpose to their performance. Suspected infidelity and undisprovable accusations does not for effective soldiering make. It is also features highly as a reason why so many service personnel's marriages or relationships. fail and military careers terminate early. I don't know if you are or were a serviceman's spouse or partner or have spoken to any of them.? Please expand if you will. I think if you consider the reality of the work being undertaken and I mean SAS, you may find my original comments a little less irritating. Pleasant to meet you.MatthewE commented on:
Should women join the SAS?You appear to be more concerned in focusing on the mantra of equality based on a popularMatthewE commented on:
Should a gingerbread man become a gingerbread person?Why? If this is a problem for some green-hair feminists they should consider the 'feelings' of non-white people that the biscuits are actually brown and a racist insult and incitement to devour them. Its a stupid world they have created.MatthewE commented on:
Will you be stocking up on provisions for post-Brexit?For goodness sake - its not 1940. Stop with this scaremongering. Shortages are exacerbated by panic buying. Armageddon is not on the table.MatthewE commented on:
Should there be a specified age to retake your practical driving test?Absolutely not. The most dangerous and therefore highest penalised by the insurance companies are the newly qualified drivers. A general medical at 70; eyesight, reactions etc fair enough and then each three years or so thereafter gaining favourable considerations on insurance premiums as an incentive.MatthewE commented on:
Should women join the SAS?Can you imagine the stress placed on a married soldier wives, knowing that their husbands are spending long tours away from home in the close company of unknown females? That is the reality, nothing to do with whether women can pass selection.MatthewE commented on:
Should women join the SAS?This is a definite NO for me - same goes for what's left of the British Navy afloat. Look at the performance of the navy ratings taken prisoner in the Gulf some years back and the propaganda coup the presence of women gave the Iranians by ridiculing our 'fighting naval force'. SAS is a specialist small group action unit. Placing female soldiers in this environment will add more stress on relationships of mutual reliance between soldiers. These essential support links forged at present through Spartan conditions and degrees of extreme risk and preparedness to die for the group. These exercises in 'equality' throughout society are already corrosive to masculinity they should be shut down without reservation. Have you ever seen any women Taliban or ISIS amazonian 'warriors'? You have seen I'm sure, how they already treat their own women. Can you imagine how they would treat women captives the SAS or the concessions they could wring out of us for their safe release, not to mention men's lives put at risk as a consequence? Its a NO from me.
