Several months ago, I told you about Barack Obama’s boneheaded plan to put women in Navy submarines, where there are very close quarters, and thus, sanitary and sex issues. It’s not a good idea. And as I noted, when women were put on ships, it immediately resulted in many of them getting pregnant, with many of them having to be sent home during the first Gulf War on one ship alone.
But logic, facts, and consequences aren’t important to the Obama administration, especially not as important as pleasing special interests, like the feminist crowd. So, the Obama-niks okayed it, and women are now being phased into Navy subs.
And the Obama people are declaring victory, no problems, everything’s a success. Obama’s Navy Secretary Ray Mabus says he’s getting “little or no resistance inside the Navy” since announcing he’s letting women serve aboard.
PUH-LEEZE. Imagine you are an officer in the Navy, perhaps a commanding officer of many troops, maybe even a high-ranking Admiral.
Are you going to get on the bad side of the Obama people and speak your mind on women in the subs, when the Obama administration has already declared this is the policy and that it will work. Are you going to risk your career to speak out or even say a word against this? Are you going to risk charges of disobeying orders, insubordination, and dereliction of duty?
So, for the Navy Secretary to say he’s getting little or no resistance means nothing. Except that people in the Navy are scared and worried about keeping their jobs. They have families to feed, careers to finish out, pensions to collect, and healthcare to be covered. They aren’t going to risk losing those things to say anything. There is little free speech in America’s military ranks, by design.
And Secretary Mabus and his boss, Barack Obama, know that. Trust me, plenty of sailors on subs don’t want women there. And, still others, want them there for easy access. Either way, there is no truth to Mabus’ hallucinations.
Women on subs will be a huge headache. It’s only just starting. Periods and pregnancies do not belong on Navy submarines. How many women on subs will get pregnant? And who will end up paying the tab for sending them home? You will. Social experiments in the military are always a disaster. And the U.S. taxpayer is always the loser.
Sadly, in this case, so is national security. You can’t run an effective Navy operation with women having to be flown home. That’s gonna happen. Good luck with it.
Operation Petticoat doesn’t even work in liberal Hollywood’s movies. It won’t work in real life.
By the way, here’s a little music video about what Barack Obama is trying to do to the U.S. Navy . . .
