    Military to open combat jobs to women

    The U.S. military is ending its policy of excluding women from combat and will open combat jobs and direct combat units to female troops, CNN has learned. Multiple officials confirm to CNN that Defense Secretary Leon Panetta will make the announcement tomorrow and notify Congress of the planned change in policy.

    “We will eliminate the policy of ‘no women in units that are tasked with direct combat,’” a senior defense official says.

    But the officials caution that “not every position will open all at once on Thursday.” Once the policy is changed, the Department of Defense will enter what is being called an “assessment phase,” in which each branch of service will examine all of its jobs and units not currently integrated and then produce a timetable in which it can integrate them.

    Makes sense to me. If someone is physically qualified, let them do it.

    Im torn on this. Im someone big on rights regardless if I believe in it or not, abortion for example. I can see the rights side of it, but I see the other side. The biggest reason ive been told, if your a full grown man and you get shot, do you want to rely on women to pull you out. I dont mean that to sound sexist, its just how it is. Men are naturally stronger in most cases. But like JLynn said, id they're phisically capable, I have no problem with it.

    I want them to pull me out, man or woman. They'll be trained well enough that they'll be capable

    given the evolution of the nature of warfare and political violence in the 21st century, the lines between combat and non-combat roles have been seriously blurred, and numerous women have found themselves in combat while serving in Iraq and Afghanistan
