One of the dumbest, most idiotic ideas from Washington, D.C., is women in combat roles.

Women are not designed physically, emotionally or spiritually to handle the horrors of war.

Think the suicide rate is high now? Just wait until this transpires. Can’t you see a strapping 6-foot, 2-inch, 190-pound male soldier wounded and 120-pound woman trying to drag him to safety, let alone carrying him? Get real people.

What I would like to see is some of these worthless, blood-sucking career politicians don a uniform and go do something worthwhile.

I’d start with Leon Panetta, followed closely with Dianne Feinstein, Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, Maxine Waters, Chuck Schumer and Frank Lautenberg, all totally useless.

I would love to find out who’s involved with these “think tanks.”

Ford Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation, Carnegie Group, Carlyle Group.

Many of these psychopaths are responsible for buying off many of the politicians so we can continue ruining the economy with these endless wars at the expense of our young people.

I know this to be true because I served as a Rifleman/RTO in Vietnam.

Let me encourage anyone reading this letter to get a copy of Gen. Smedley Butler’s book “War is a Racket.”

He nails it down.
