    Lawmakers Drop Plan Requiring Women to Register for Draft

    WEST POINT.jpg

    WASHINGTON -- House and Senate negotiators have reached agreement on a sweeping defense policy bill that rejects a plan to force women to register for a military draft.

    Removing the provision is a victory for social conservatives who decried it as another step toward the blurring of gender lines.

    Sorry, I didn't understand. Any word is clear, but whole text is not. What is wrong with a registration of women?

    They wanted to force women to register. Thats messed up, its not their duty to serve and protect. If a war happens men are supposed to go not women. Besides most American women wouldn't want to go to war. Imagine if WW3 started? Would they want to be drafted?

    First of all, every citisen in USA is registered somewhere, aren't they? So, it will not be a problem to copy list of woman-nurses or woman-pilots in any moment.
    Second - do you have drafting for men now? As I know - you have only contract Army.
    Third - protection of state is a duty of any citisen, but women lives costs (for population) much more. Using women as usual "gun's meat" is something like making bullets from gold, imho.
    In Russia women with some professions (for example - all nurses) are registered as military reservists, and have a military rank (nurses are junior sergants).
    When WW3 will started, many of them will be drafted. Medics, chemists, communicators, psychologists, pilots, etc...

    Thats a smart system, something like that would work. Here in America its all or nothing, they want to do "the mans job". If you pay attention to the US media and hollywood you will notice that they are trying to feminize men and make women more masculine. The "stay at home dad" is seen as cute.

    Its sad to see war being politicized like this, honestly the people advocating for a female draft have no clue what a real war is like. These low intensity wars are not that bad compared to WW2 and WW1.
