Bad Idea

From OTB:
Seventy-seven percent of senior officers in the active-duty military are white, while only 8 percent are black, 5 percent are Hispanic and 16 percent are women, the report by an independent panel said, quoting data from September 2008.

One barrier that keeps women from the highest ranks is their inability to serve in combat units.
I don't care if it's 98% cross-dressing cocker spaniels. National defense is the one area above all else where you can NOT afford to play childish affirmative-action games. War is not an activity for children.

And why do they want more women to die in combat zones? They omit the word, but that's what it means in practice.

Also maimed, wounded, crippled, and psychologically damaged.

The whole purpose of going to war is to PROTECT the womenfolk, not put them in harm's way.
