Really Leon? Really? What in the world are you thinking?



My posts about politics are few and far between these days. 

But with the announcement by Defense Secretary Leon Panetta that women will be allowed to serve in combat roles, I cannot let this pass by without comment. 

I could easily rant and rave about this decision.  Instead, I found an excellent response in an article written by Ryan Smith on the Wall Street Journal Opinion section.  Take the time to read it and pass it along so that the citizens of this nation can see the conditions we would be putting our daughters, sisters, wives, mothers, aunts and friends in. 




Mr. Panetta, is there a reason why you announced the decision as you are leaving you post as Defense Secretary?

Susan...there are no coincidences in politics. Everything is done for a reason...
Women wanting to serve in combat have no idea...

I heard about the announcement yesterday. I'll have to pop over and read the article.

Hi Susan,
There is absolutely nothing this administration we now have in office would surprise me in what they would do. Except, that is, to do the right thing. If option A would take this nation to a better place, and option B would take this nation to a worse place, every time they will choose option B. It is sad to see how this country has fallen.
Blessings,
Ken
