Allen West on women in combat: Why aren’t women in the NHL and why do we have a WNBA?

Allen West believes that the decision to put women on the ‘front lines’ in combat units is being made from the wrong direction. He believes it should be researched from the bottom up, starting with the combat units, instead of having it decreed from the top which will likely squelch any dissenters. But even more than that, he says our focus should be on sequestration and the declining Middle East instead of on a ‘foray’ into an ‘inequality trip’.

But, he says, if it’s true that women can operate in combat just like the men, then why aren’t women playing in the NHL with the men? Why is there a separate WNBA? He adds that maybe the women should be playing against Kobe Bryant.
