Pentagon Recommends That Women Be Required To Sign Up For The Draft
Seriously? Are you nuts! Is this about the need for more military or more political correctness? Because we all know political correctness is dangerous. The thought that we would force our daughters into the military and into combat is totally insane!
The Pentagon is recommending that women be required to register for the draft just like men. They want this to boost military enrollment. But if you are messing with the draft, is war imminent? Why would you do this? Do they know something we don’t? Personally, I join Ted Cruz in saying that this is a horrible idea and should not be done. I have seen no major recruitment drive to replenish the military after Barack Obama decimated it. Shouldn’t we try that first? This came out in a Defense Department report addressed to Congress.
The Washington Times got a hold of the report. It purportedly says that the Selective Service System would increase enrollment by 11 million people if the US required women to sign up for the draft. I knew this was coming under Obama, but I never dreamed it would become a reality under President Trump. “It appears that, for the most part, expanding registration for the draft to include women would enhance further the benefits presently associated with the Selective Service System,” the report said.
Currently, only male citizens and immigrants between the ages of 18 and 25 are required to sign up for the draft. Under this current law, the Selective Service receives two million sign-ups per year. The Pentagon has been trying to bring in and integrate more and more women into the military. I consider it a recipe for disaster. It would be one thing if they were trained like Israeli women are. It’s quite another in the politically correct cultural climate we find ourselves in today.
Former Obama Defense Secretary Ash Carter announced in 2015 that the military would allow women to serve in combat roles. At that time, the Pentagon was mulling whether women should be required to register for the draft in future years. The Pentagon needs an enema. This is yet another sign of progressive liberalism infecting the military and it needs to stop. Women have never been required to register for Selective Service before in the Act’s 100-year history. Congress would have to amend the current law before they would be required to sign up.
Congress passed the National Defense Authorization Act in 2016, which called for a yearly review of the draft system, but stopped short of requiring women to register for the Selective Service.
This whole political correctness needs to end. It will get us into deep trouble.
I’m all for women’s rights, but seriously folks, THIS is dangerous. It will have consequences and I don’t mean good ones either. Sorry folks, I don’t support women being drafted for combat. Women and men ARE different. Period.
Who are the idiots in charge that think THIS is a good idea?!
