’Frankenstein and Dracula have nothing on you…’

Women could serve in front line units after an European Union directive forced the Ministry of Defence to review their "close-combat" role.
Review it, eh…?

Why not save yourselves the trouble and just look in the newspapers:
The "ladette" yob culture is on the rise, according to figures which show 241 women and girls are arrested each day for violence.

Young teenage girls were worse than those in the 18-20 age group, the Home Office figures show.
Violent robberies, burglaries and thefts all up in recession crime wave In contrast, violence among men and boys is falling.
Kipling was onto something, I think…

Most cultures are devoted to the reverence of women as givers of life. It chills the spine to credit women with violence equal to men and for that reason this capacity is readily overlooked. History records German fear of female Russian snipers during WW2 and a ruthless effectiveness in pulling triggers or pushing buttons just as well as men.

A recent escalation in the number of women arrested for domestic violence highlights another side to the otherwise quiet woman who can so swiftly combine the actions of both leading characters in Macbeth.

Wasn't there a book entitled 'Shoot The Women First'...? It sprang to mind when I was posting this.

Ah, yes, I see there was, the title being taken from advice upposedly given to the sharpshooters in Germany's GSG 9 anti-terrorist squad....

If you make women join front line infantry formations there will be no war as they will not march into machine gun fire on command.
In this case it will never be 'women and children first'.
