Rick Santorum Women In Combat

February 11, 2012 by staff 

Rick Santorum Women In Combat, So Rick Santorum says that he was not talking about over-emotional females when he raised objections to the idea of women in combat. Instead, he says, he was talking about how over-emotional males might behave. OK fine, so instead of insulting women, he’s insulted men, and military men in particular.

Appearing on CNN Thursday night, the former Pennsylvania senator was asked about the Pentagon’s decision to loosen restrictions on women in combat. He replied:

I want to create every opportunity for women to be able to serve this country. And they do so in an amazing and wonderful way. And they’re a great addition to the — and have been for a long time, to the armed services of our country.

But I do have concerns about women in frontline combat. I think that can be a very compromising situation where — where people naturally may do things that may not be in the interests of the mission because of other types of emotions that are involved. And I think that’s probably — you know, it already happens, of course, with the camaraderie of men in combat. But it’s — but it’s — I think it would be even more unique if women were in combat. And I think that’s probably not in the best interests of men, women or the mission.
