About Michael R Shannon


  1. This clip of a woman being taught how to throw a hand grenade shows why not all women may be ready for combat roles…


    • Unfortunately, I couldn’t get the video to play, but I can only imagine what happened.

  2. Jan,

    I think you are confusing satire with serious argument, although I have seen shopping carts in some remarkable places. Pilots are often captured – see McCain, John – would you want women in the Hanoi Hilton?

    Same with Lesbos. It’s an actual island and in ancient times its military was said to be composed solely of women. Myth of course, just like putting women in front line today.

    • Hmmm..perhaps, Michael, you are right. I’ve been a ‘fan’ of your for sometime now & follow your writing on this & other sites. I read the post again, and now that you’ve pointed out that it was meant as satire I do see where it might be. And while I was already aware about the Isle of Lesbos, the combination of that & the shopping cart still appear (to Me) rather demeaning & flippant when inserted in a serious article on a serious subject..We DO AGREE on the fact that lower standards lowers quality. Just ‘throwing hordes of bodies’ at an enemy only gets someone else that qualified killed. Our Military & their families that has & continues t0 give so much seem to be under attack from their own administration with the constant dismantling and de-moralizing ‘new’ standards of ‘take a knife to a gun fight’

      For the record: I don’t like to see the policemen partnered with females either…and I still really really really like reading your articles..always informative & thought provoking.

      • Jan,

        I know you are a long-time reader and I take your observations seriously.

        If I’ve offended, please accept my apology.

        • Aha shucks, Michael…you don’t offend me, If you had, I wouldn’t bother to answer. If we don’t always see eye to eye….well that doesn’t stop either of us from being extremely intelligent… :)..and it’s the discussions that educate & entertain.

  3. You’re right, WOMEN DO NOT BELONG IN COMBAT for a myriad of reasons. However, in no way should this preclude their contributions in logistics, engineering,& other strategic areas to include helo & fighter pilots.
    “Shopping carts of shoes”?? Really now,…don’t you think this is just a tad bit chauvinistic?? Not all women are Barbies. And frankly, I was taken back by your implication & reference that our women (or those in other counties) in uniform are “Lesbos”, They are mothers, wives, daughter & Patriots.

    I DO AGREE that the lowering of standards is a very poor choice. It’s happening in our schools as well. It definitely lowers the quality as well and places us all in harms way. For those that may not have notices, man & women are different and never ‘equal’ in all…guess God had a different plan than man..& do believe His is the best…just as reasons for seasons, there’s a reason for differences and lower standards won’t change it. That just WEAKENS us.

    During Viet Nam when deployment was 18 mos or 2 yrs, as a military wife with 3 children “I learned” to change tire, repair leaky faucets, replace broken pipes & change the oil regularly in our car…& crawl up on the roof to replace pads in a swamp cooler…This was a NECESSITY…not choice. I’d love to fill my cart with shes, but our men just don’t get paid enough….

  4. L.E.

    Which is why conservatives must support conservative candidates at the polling booth and make their wishes known.

  5. Politics and political correctness has taken over our military. The left has been playing social engineering with the military system for years and the results have been devastating. The idea of total victory and unconditional surrender have given away to the philosophy of winning the hearts and minds of the enemy. Telling our enemies that we are weak and lack the intestinal fortitude it takes to win. Is the feminization of our military really that big of a surprise when you look at our federal government today.”We the People” have elected the largest bunch of cowards and traitors in history, to run the greatest country on earth and look at all the damage they are doing. The Republic is gone, and we have the worst form of government since King George.
