The women failed the introductory Combat Endurance Test, a punishing test of physical strength and endurance, officials at Marine Corps headquarters said Tuesday. The latest class began March 28 at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Va., with 110 lieutenants participating. Ninety-six men passed the initial endurance test. Twelve men and two women — the only female Marines taking part — failed.
The left hates the military and placing women in combat roles serves two purposes. The left wants to blur the gender roles. That will require the dumbing-down of standards. It has been done across this nation with the police departments and ultimately it will be done by the military. The left cares about equality and they’ll drag the Marines down to their level even if it means downgrading effectiveness, compromising strength, and ultimately making victory in war more difficult. So you get equality and weak military all for an unknown price that the nation will pay in the future.
