Chicks Fail Marine Infantry Course . . . AGAIN: Women in Combat Preview; “Gender-Neutral Standards” on the Way
File under, “Preview of Women in Combat – Epic Fail.” Or under, “The Movie ‘G.I. Jane’ & Other Fairy Tales.”
I already told you, last fall, about the two females who failed the Marine infantry training. They couldn’t even complete the course and dropped out. Now, two chicks failed the same Marine infantry course. . . again. And they want them in combat? Hilarious. Well, it would be hilarious, if it wasn’t so sad and detrimental to U.S. military readiness. Good luck with that, America. And, as I noted before, the Marines said, after the first two chicks failed, that the Marine Corps would look to formulating “gender-neutral standards”–translation: LOWERING the standards–so women will pass. And that’s comin’ up real soon. Semper Futilis.
Two female officers entered the demanding Marine Infantry Officer Course this week — only the second time in the history of the course that women have been allowed to compete to become ground combat leaders — but neither passed the grueling obstacle course on Thursday, military officials said. The women made it through the first few days of the course.
Of the 110 students who began the course this week, 96 are still enrolled — the women were joined by 12 of their Marine brothers who also failed to complete the obstacle course entirely or could not complete it in the time allotted.
The Marine Infantry Officer Course is 10 weeks of intense field training at Quantico, Va. Marines are tested to endure rigorous physical tests and written exams with little food or sleep, all of which push the men and women to their physical and mental limits. About 400 Marines take the course each year, and one in four drops out. . . .
The Marine Corps asked for women to volunteer to try the course as part of the ongoing effort to open more military billets to women. So far four women have volunteered, but none have successfully completed the course. Two female lieutenants entered the course last September — the first women ever allowed to do so. While both women eventually dropped the course, one of them made it well into the second week before an injury forced her out.
Um, that means she failed. Nice try, but no cigar, with the excuses.
The two women who volunteered for this latest round will not likely be the last. A U.S. military official tells NBC News that five more female Marines are already waiting in the wings to enter the course this summer.
So, how long ’til they change the program and make it simple enough so that women can pass. 3-2-1 . . . .
Ya think Al-Qaeda is lowering the standards in its terrorist training camps so Muslimas can pass?
And that’s the difference. We appease and lower our standards to achieve the appeasement. They don’t. And that’s why, in the long run, they and their ilk keep winning. We keep losing.
Just because we object to the way Muslims treat women, doesn’t mean we have to do a 180 and pretend women can do things they physically just cannot. Political correctness and feminism are the twin fatal cancers metastasizing within Western civilization.
Gloria Steinem’s warped fantasies don’t win wars.
And the U.S. Marine Corps’ infantry needs women like a fish needs a bicycle.
Semper Idiotis, bitches.
