I’ve been telling you (over and over) about Barack Obama’s boneheaded decision to allow female sailors on Navy submarines a la “Operation Petticoat.” Sadly, it’s not just an old, hoaky movie from decades past, but a reality that will cause a lot of problems . . . and, as I’ve been predicting, a lot of sailorettes sent home for getting pregnant.
Midshipman Jessica Wilcox & Fellow Sailoratrixes Brag About Invading Navy Subs
Now, Associated Press is, predictably, getting in on the propaganda. The news wire is touting the women who will begin training this summer to become submarine officers and report for duty on subs by 2012.
Above is a pic of some of the women, including Midshipmen Jessica Wilcox (the blonde with her mouth open), Misty Webster, Kristin Lyles, Kayla Sax, and Laura Martindale. AP reports that 11-20 women have been selected to participate. How many of these women do you think will be pregnant by 2013? I’m taking bets. I say at least 6 out of the 20, but past experience–with female soldiers aboard ships–says that’s low and that it’s more like 8-10.
