Ted Cruz: Drafting Women Into Combat "Immoral"

CANDIDATE GOES AGAINST HIS FELLOW NEOCONSERVATIVES

The issue of women in combat has been on the radar a good bit in recent months … in fact we addressed it briefly back in December when U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford decided to open his fool mouth on the subject.

Now U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas is weighing in on a particular aspect of this debate – namely whether the federal government should be able to draft women into combat.  Women have previously been exempted from the draft – a.k.a. the Selective Service System (SSS) – due to restrictions on their combat eligibility.

All men in the United States above the age of eighteen must register with the SSS – although since 1973 the U.S. Armed Forces have operated as a volunteer-only force.

Several establishment “Republican” politicians – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, New Jersey governor Chris Christie and former Florida governor Jeb Bush – have now jumped aboard the “draft women” bandwagon.  They are following Army Chief of Staff general Mark Milley and Marine Corps Commandant general Robert Neller – both of whom argued that the exemption on women being drafted should no longer apply if women were no longer limited in which

“We have had enough with political correctness, especially in the military. Political correctness is dangerous,” Cruz said. “And the idea that we would draft our daughters to forcibly bring them into the military and put them in close combat, I think, is wrong. It is immoral. I’m the father of two little girls, they are capable of doing anything they desire, but the idea that their government would forcibly put them in a foxhole doesn’t make any sense at all.”

Indeed …

This website has embraced the notion of women in combat …

“If an individual completes the training required for a particular military job – and is deemed capable of performing that job by his or her superiors – then they should not be prohibited from doing the job on the basis of their gender,” we wrote.

But forcing any American to fight when they don’t want to is wrong …

That’s true under any circumstance – but it strikes us as especially true given the completely boneheaded nature of American foreign policy of late … to say nothing of the full-scale erosion of liberty on the home front.

Anyway, what do you think?  Should women be forced to register for the draft?

I guess women are too dainty to be drafted, they need to stay in the kitchen, birthing table, or the appropriate binder and do what they are told in the eyes of Cruz. He is a typical Republican all right.

Cruz like many Republicans can’t imagine their own kids being sent off to fight their wars and he doesn’t want anything to get in the way of him serving the wishes of the warmongering oligarchs.

I work in law enforcement, and I can tell you first hand that what actually happens is women get in and start wanting special treatment. We just dealt last week with a female officer who wouldn’t respond to a domestic violence call with out a man with her, a call that given the circumstances any of the rest of us would have had to respond to alone. If you’re talking about a completely equal treatment situation, then yes. Go for it. But, you only breed resentment in the ranks if you start carving out special considerations for women.

Plus, forcing women who are not police or militarily-oriented in mindset against their better judgment and will into this will add even more problems. It’s one thing when you have to go on a bad call with a woman who doesn’t mind the fight or the danger and can hold her own. Quite another, if it was a timid girl and she was forced to be there and rightfully was terrified.

I’ve seen male and female cops who just were not cut out for the job, even though participation is voluntary. Most though, because they chose that line of work, were A-1.

Unless we are preparing for imminent attack upon our country, on our soil, the draft is wholly immoral.

By now the BS about fighting unnecessarily lengthy wars in other parts of the world, for the benefit of big corporations and other wealthy fat cats’ monetary interests, should be apparent to anyone who bothers to open their eyes. The shame of this practice is made worse when you realize that good men’s and women’s lives are destroyed and shattered because it is profitable to someone’s interests up the food chain to unnecessarily prolong and extend these wars, never intending to let the brave men and women fighting them to decisively win.

I agree….
I was in the Army when the draft was still in effect (1971-1974) I was a volunteer but anybody who was at Ft. Jackson in 1971 (or any US Army Basic Training Facility back then for that matter..) can attest to the following roster headcount EVERY time as you passed through the “chow hall” line:
“#1 RA, #2 NG, #3 AR, #4 US” and so on down the line in no particular order for headcount purposes
RA = “Regular Army” = a volunteer (like myself)
NG = “National Guard” = someone who had joined the National Guard (back then mostly to keep from being drafted and sent to Vietnam)
AR = someone who had joined the Army Reserve (See “NG above for the most part”)
US = a draftee
I did my entire time in the 82nd Airborne Division at Ft. Bragg. I served alongside draftees who had volunteered for jump school. I can attest that I would want those guys having my back every damn time even today. When the shit hit the fan during the Yom Kippur War alert no one shirked their duty and the entire Division was fully mobilized in less than 14 hours (a record which still stands even today even if about 20% were “stoners”). I’d be willing to bet that if you asked any one of those guys today (who’d be at least 61 years old), serving for 2-3 years was one of the best things that happened to them and set them up for life later on.

*******In my opinion, the draft should have never ended and should include females..If it’s good enough for Israel it’s good enough for the United States*****

***Sometimes you’ve got to temporarily lose a little freedom to appreciate what you have lost****

Cruz and FITS will never understand that however…..

No doubt that there are plenty of tough women – it’s a matter of economy of scale. My battle buddy in Sapper school was a female who readily handed my ass to me in combatives – she was a “multiple forms” black belt and 15 years younger than me.

Think about this for a minute. We offer two different types of every uniform except the PT uniform for males and females – that costs more than it would if there was one type. A female’s basic training initial issue costs almost $100 more than a males and they’re given 4 times the males allowance to fill out their uniform requirements. That doesn’t sound like much until you multiple it time the 100,000+ new soldiers we add each year – the $100 difference becomes 20,000 (new female soldiers) x $100 or $2,000,000 just for bras, panties and high heel shoes… The allowance is that same 20,000 x $270 (360-the $90 males get) or $5.4 million. Net cost is about $7.4 million just to have females in uniform.

This doesn’t even come close to addressing the cost of body armor, facilities, health care extras and “accommodations” that Molly costs over Joe. Joe doesn’t get pregnant, has greater upper body strength and is generally more adaptable to a combat environment.

Armies exist to break things and kill people, not create equal opportunity experiments.

I agree.This election is 100% about illegal immigration.There will be NO amnesty under a Trump presidency. Any immigrant citizen applicants under Trump will be subjected to STRICT vetting, some of which are enumerated on Trump’s website, and others that he’s mentioned during interviews. There will be NO mooches (must be completely self-sufficient), NO law breakers, and NO persons that had to be physically deported.

Not to mention, Trump’s immigration paper calls for a “pause” in immigration (moratorium) to allow CITIZENS to take the jobs once occupied by illegals that will be exiting the country (ousted by either by force, or by self deportation)…construction, food services, manufacturing, etc.

Also of note, the work/trade school/community service requirement Trump will place on able bodied citizen welfare recipients will have our OWN welfare cheats/mooches scrambling for jobs vacated by illegals, or their welfare spigot will be SHUT OFF. This will immensely lower our outlay for welfare, and keep the money in America’s economy where it belongs.

Jan, just over 1% of the population of the United States volunteers to serve, Cruz is not unusual or different in that respect – in fact none of the candidates still in the race on either side have served. (Only Graham, Perry, Gilmore and Webb, all of whom have dropped out, have served) Of the total population of the US, there are something like 19,000,000 veterans from all wars still living. That accounts for about 6% of the US total population, vastly disproportionately male are veterans.

I definitely ain’t a fan (let alone a supporter) of Bernie Sanders but as far as I know of him he doesn’t fit the bill or model of a chickenhawk.
The common definition of a “chickenhawk” is someone who talks tough about kicking some nation or group’s ass but never served a day in the military which is something you won’t find Bernie Sanders espousing.

The Colonel (R) February 9, 2016 at 6:29 am

But none of them are running for office so who cares. We haven’t had a draft in forty years and there are far fewer veterans than you’d think. Jefferson never served and he ended the paying of tribute to the Libyan pirates (our first real dealings with Islamic terrorists). While not a fan, FDR never served and he win a world war.Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon did serve and we know how Vietnam turned out…

sparklecity February 9, 2016 at 10:37 am

Fuck, don’t you think that I don’t know that the population who are veterans is very small???

So here you are pontificating that Sanders and/or Hillary are “chickenhawks” while in the same breath posting that other presidents who also did not serve got us involved into wars and some were “gasp” fucking DEMOCRATS!!! Using your examples of presidents who have won conflicts and were not veterans, Sarah Palin or Ben Carson are logical choices for being the best president to have if there was a national emergency or foreign crisis. Not to mention Eisenhouer(sp) who was a veteran but presided in getting us out of Korea and having relative peace during his entire two terms while the draft was in full swing. But then there was that little scheme to invade Cuba that was passed along to Kennedy……

You can’t have it both ways. Again, Sanders is no “chickenhawk” by the standard definition and neither is Hillary (again I ain’t gonna vote for either one…) Neither of them are beating the war drum so damn much that it is busting the drumskin like so many of the ‘conservative neo-con “chickenhawks” have been doing for years.

In my opinion Trump & Cruz are “chickenhawks” in every sense of the word (especially Trump who used every angle he could to avoid being drafted). Cruz came along after the draft was eliminated so I will give him a pass on that portion but talking tough BS for political points is a bunch of shit and Cruz spits that shit out every chance he gets.

You are aware of the ACTUAL statement that Trump made saying that because he went to a private military school when he was a pimple-faced teenager that he believes he knows more about the military than some who are IN the military don’t you???
Do you want a fuckwad that says shit like that as Commander in Chief??? Let alone dissing POW’s………….

Then who the hell are you referring to as a Democratic “chickenhawk”…Hillary?????
Thanks for the list of 20th century Democrat presidents who have actually won wars:

1. Wilson = a win

2. FDR = a BIG fucking win (won by a shitload of draftees, BTW……….)

3. Truman ( a no shit WWI combat veteran) = prevented South Korea from being conquered by North Korea and was the first president to confront communism head on

4. Kennedy (WWII veteran and quasi-“hero”) = “Cuban Missile Crisis” – need I say more?

5. Clinton = “won” Serbia principally by utilizing airpower…(got that T-shirt”) and kept Saddam contained (was there for that one too as well as under Bush #1

Republicans
A. ****Eisenhower & Cold War (obviously he’s a veteran….) Every one of the presidents from Truman – Bush #1 were involved in “winning” the Cold War so don’t cherry pick that one…….******.

B. Reagan: Grenada was a diversion from the Beiruit Barracks Bombing debacle and subsequent pull out of Beiruit after that old fool got the troops killed after being advised by high military advisers that bombing/shelling Beiruit was a recipe for disaster
*****Panama??? “Wrongo” there O-6 type… the invasion of Panama (“Operation Just Cause”) was under Bush 1…NOT Reagan…..look it up…………*****

C. Bush I ( a veteran) = Too bad he lost his 2nd term – we’d all be better off (I guess…) if he had won. I respect him tremendously and his boy ain’t nowhere the president he was.

D. “W” (got his daddy to get him into the Texas Air Guard and fly F-102’s) = Agreed with what he stated about the war on terrorism and actions taken in Afghanistan early on but totally fucked up by invading Iraq. We’re still paying for all the conservative ‘chickenhawks’ cheering him and Cheney on…I was personally vindicated when I stated back then Iraq was not the threat that “sheeple” ( and ESPECIALLY CONSERVATIVE “SHEEPLE”) were led to believe. Too bad around 5,000 of our brothers AND sisters -in arms had to die to prove that point.

Kennedy really didn’t “win” Cuba???
Guess we’d have been better off if the Russkies had kept the missiles there huh????
Don’t forget that the Cuban Revolution happened during the Eisenhour(sp) administration and that Castro actually made overtures to the United States early on after he gained control but when we rejected his overtures (again under Eisenhour{sp}). Castro turned to Russia who gladly took him under their wing.

That being said, I personally think that the American way of life reached its apex under Eisenhour(sp) and the short-lived Kennedy Administrations.
My earliest political memories were of Eisenhour(sp) having a heart attack and I was 9 when Kennedy went on TV for the Cuban Missile Crisis (I remember it vividly) because we had been doing the “duck & cover’ drills at school for a few years prior to the crisis.
I remember thinking the 9 year old equivalent of “Oh shit,this is it”. Since we lived in coal mine country, I figured we’d just hole up in a mine somewhere till the thing “blew over” so to speak…..

The Colonel (R) February 9, 2016 at 1:55 pm

Again, the plan to overthrow Castro was damn near complete under the Eisenhower administration.
The Cuban government under Bastista was hopelessly corrupt and the Mafia ran the good parts of Havannah. The Cuban people were just plain tired of all the shit. I’m not saying that socialism/communism was the way to go by any stretch. but that was the only real option in their eyes at the time.
Do you really think that by us having a bigger role in overthrowing Castro during the Bay of Pigs would be the way to go??
I don’t think so. The United States has a pretty lousy record of “nation building” and if we had “conquered” Cuba (they are a proud people) we’d had a western hemisphere version of Vietnam on our hands.
The only people who were really interested in having Cuba back in our pocket was the Mafia and the sugar cane/fruit plantation conglomerates like Dole (and other early versions of ConAgra).

sparklecity February 9, 2016 at 3:11 pm

The take over of Cuba via the Bay of Pigs would have flopped even if Nixon had won instead of Kennedy – no doubt about it.

I will admit that Cruz mentions a flat tax from time to time but I don’t think he is serious about it. I just might vote for him on that alone but I really think he is a natural born SOB (sometimes it takes a SOB to get things done however).

I can think of nothing more detrimental to American society than forcing our women into the gears of the war machine; to be ground up and discarded over issues that no one will give a shit about in 100 years.

If women want to volunteer, so be it- but I’ll be damned if I’m going to let a bunch of fairies & feminists call me a chauvinist pig over stating the obvious: Women generally speaking are not as good at war as men and even further are not psychologically fit for it. PERIOD.

Yes, in the days of Nintendo warfare much of the physical requirement has been removed, but certainly not all. Most women psychologically are nurturers, trying to turn them into killers when it goes against most of their nature is simply ludicrous.

American society is rotting from the inside out.

All these “men” jumping on this bandwagon are first rate pussies. I’m still in good enough shape to kick their asses and would happily do so if given the chance to fuck them up without legal repercussions. Oh, how I’d love to start with Christie and kick that FUPA back up into his stomach and the move right on down the line.

You think you own or have actual control of your girls? The government can take them away anytime they like. You just get to do all the work of raising them and the government gets all the profit. You poor rube. Now, you’re welcome to leave the US anytime you like.

I was waiting for them to ask Trump at the debate for his view on the Women’s Draft.
Lucky for him they didn’t ask him. But, the other GOP creeps want to send your daughter’s off to war to be raped and murdered: JEB Bush (known on SNL as Jebica), Fat Ass Christy, and Dumb Ass Rubio; will present your daughters to the Enemy Rapist.

These complete dumbasses need to know that Drafting Women, is not a GOP Conservative Position. SO SHUT THE HELL UP!!

So you are ok with sending our sons off to be murdered and raped? What, you don’t think that happens in prisoner of war camps? I mean look at what we did at Abu Ghraib prison. Do you think our enemies are more humane than we are?

NO WAY!
I’m against war at all possible costs.
Always the very last thing to do, after trying everything else.

I’ve seen it up close and personal.
No one should ever have to be subjected to that insanity.
Least of all our young women, against their will.

But that is not what you said. You said you were against drafting women. You did not say anything about not drafting men. Do you have a daughter?

But Fits, bringing back the draft will end the war mongering you rail about. If EVERYONE was at risk of losing their child in combat in some far flung country do you think our politicians would be so quick to go to war? Of course, you’d have to deal with deferrals (cheney) and cushy Guard spots (dubya), but the people wouldn’t stand for that kind of universal risk.

I don’t believe in the draft for women. If they enlist, they should be able to apply for any job in the Armed Services. If they can pass the requirements, give them a shot at it. Current standards should not be modified or changed to get female applicants into positions.

I like the Israel model. All men are drafted and women that want to serve can do so. Woman that can’t serve in uniform/combat should do something else beneficial for society.

If the Pentagon truly wants to draft women, it should start with creating a force to be reckoned with, one that will cause Muslim men to shit and run —- The Dyke Brigade….

Truthfully, as I think about it, the draft pool would be decreased and easy to avoid simply by the females getting pregnant or exempted because of the number of children they take care of regardless whether it’s theirs or their sisters or cousins. The Pentagon better do a realistic study of this before proceeding.
