Cooper, Elise. "Articles: Women in Combat: The Soldiers Speak." Articles: Women in Combat: The Soldiers Speak. N.p., 21 Feb. 2013. Web. 07 Apr. 2014.

The ban was lifted and woman can now stand with the men in battle. But they can’t join special teams. The ban was lifted because America is an equal opportunity and equal right country. The war in Iraq and Afghanistan provide women had what it took. There were times when it was only women available to do the job. So the supports think that women should be giving the option even if one out of a thousand makes it. 15 percent of the military is women. And the standards shouldn’t be lower for women if this is something a woman wants she got to work for it. The main question that the author asked is will a woman be capable to forget about self and put herself in harms way. And the people that argue with women in combat say yes.

This journal has several different articles in it. And it’s more of a debating article because, some of the articles is agreeing with the fact that women are strong enough to be in combat. And that woman is just as tough as the guys. But on the other hand some of the authors were saying that most of the combat soldiers have to carry 80 plus pound on their backs and the doctors are concerned that that will be too many pound for women to carry. But on the upper hand the authors did agree on one thing. That combat isn’t for all women. That they all don’t have what it takes. Combat should only be opened to the women that really want to be involved in it. That combat to women should be a choice the women make and it shouldn’t be forced.

Staff, Opinion. "Should the U.S. Allow Women in Combat? | The Opinion Zone Blog | The Palm Beach Post." The Opinion Zone Blog The Palm Beach Post RSS. N.p., n.d. Web. 05 Apr. 2014.

Should the U.S. Allow a woman in Combat is about the different views on the question at hand.  The pentagon is letting women close to the front lines but not in infantry. This decision was made because of the latest war. In the latest war it was hard to tell what the front lines were and the country lost a lot of the women solider. There are about 14000 jobs in combat for women mainly in the army and marines. Sen. Santorum doesn’t think the women are too emotional to do the role he thinks that man will get hurt trying to protect the women in the line of duty. Ms. Bhagwati thinks that infantry shouldn’t be open to all women just the ones that really want to try it.  So women should be in combat but in infantry unless that’s something they really want to do. And there is more opportunity for women to get involved with combat. The people don’t think that the women aren’t capable but they feel that more me will be getting hurt trying to protect the women because, that’s how American men are.

In today’s armed forces women make up 15 percent of it. Although that doesn’t seem like a lot it is. This means hundreds of thousands of women has been making the ultimate sacrifice for our country so we can have the freedoms we have today. In the latest war our women have been in direct combat many have lost their lives. The author said that bits going to take a lot more time before women are allowed in Special Forces such as Navy Seal etcetera. But the United States military does want to get women out of their normally roles such medics, military police etcetera. By this happening it could out up 14,500-230,000 jobs but mainly in the army and marine corps. So the author feels strongly that women should be in combat roles.

shakira kluttz's insight:

this is my interview. i choose this because its a women in the interview that is already in the military.  The lady was saying how women sure be let in combat. And the standards shouldn't be lower. And women are more than capable to perform these rules. But there is a flip side its a man being interview and he disagrees. But the women feels that the differences makes the strength of the U.S. as powerful as it is. She also went on to say that she knew women that out did the men in physical actives. so there is no reason for women not being allowed in combat roles.
