Napoleon – “The moral (spirit) is to the physical as three is to one.”

Another seasoned infantryman weighs in on Seven Myths About “Women in Combat”.

“Pity the truthful leader who attempts to hold to standards based on realistic combat factors, and tells truth to power. Most won’t, and the others won’t survive.”

The myths are that the issue is about women in combat when it is really about women in the infantry, that combat has changed in substance, that the proper measure is just physical capability standards, that infantry provides a path for promotion, that it’s a civil rights issue, and that it’s just fair. Each is summarily dismissed.

yet the myths persist as they are held with a fierce abandonment of reality by certain folks for reasons that just aren’t that clear.
