Pentagon Is Set To Lift Combat Ban For Women

Elisabeth Bumiller and Thom Shanker, reporting for The New York Times:

Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta is lifting the military’s official ban on women in combat, which will open up hundreds of thousands of additional front-line jobs to them, senior defense officials said Wednesday.

The military will now be fully inclusive - a move that reflects an unstoppable social progress in America. A rising voice in this country demands that no longer should one’s skin tone, or love interest, or lack of a penis serve as justification for limited freedoms. There is still time for citizens and politicians to jump onboard, or forever risk being tied to the wrong side of history.
