We've heard so many horror stories about how the Iraqi government has treated its own people . We've heard horror stories about how the American POWs were treated during the Gulf War. And, yet, in 1994 we allowed women in combat positions, have allowed them in the front lines of this war, and have had the first woman POW captured. This is wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. It certainly isn't the only reason women in combat is wrong IMHO, but boy, is it a doozy. And I don't want to hear any of the "treating women unequitably is wrong-er" crap. Its bad enough that they have *any* POWs, and they can certainly do horrid things to our men, but women can be tortured in such other horrible ways.
Sarah writes about this issue much better, more eloquently, and with better arguments than I did.
