Women Serving in the Gulf War

March 02, 1991

What is wrong with women in the battlefield during Operation Desert Storm? Absolutely nothing! But Mary Kenny has tried desperately to pull our heartstrings on the issue of mothers on the front lines of the war in the Gulf.

Funny, I don't recall the United Sates forcing these women to go there. However, I do recall them volunteering to join the armed forces. And in doing so, they knew the risks involved in such an endeavor. I guess they just didn't think that the war would actually take place, and now they cry "foul!"

On one hand, women want to be treated as equals, yet, on the other hand, when it comes time for them to become the male's equal, they scream "unfair" and want to back out of their agreement.
