By the numbers: Women in the U.S. military

More than 200,000 women are in the active-duty military, including 69 generals and admirals. A quick look at women in the military, according to Pentagon figures:

Total numbers:

- About 203,000 in 2011, or 14.5% of the active-duty force of nearly 1.4 million.

- That number comprises about 74,000 in the Army, 53,000 in the Navy, 62,000 in the Air Force and 14,000 in the Marine Corps.

    Paying bounties to eliminate Islamic clerics is the most pragmatic and cheapest answer to stop global Islamic violence and terrorism. If those bounties are payable exclusively to Muslim women, they can have control and overpower the terrorists.

      You can cut it out, Phunnie boy. Any moron knows that it's you spreading your right-wing, Tea Party manure under Patton's name. We all know that everything you say is 101% false! Has the right-wing government been that successful in brain washing you? Apparently it has!

    It appears that nihilism is fast spreading among the female population as well as the male. As I said so many times before, war has no glory, only pain and suffering especially for those who live in the countries were the fighting is taking place!

      On the other hand George, most Americans don't live in these war zones so they have no idea of the horrors thereof. This explains the popularity of these obnoxious wars. Like you, I don't think that anyone should be gung ho about going to war and this goes for both men and women! These wars stink!

    You can bet we're going to have our boys in Congress spend all your tax dollars on defense while we gut your social programs . . . .then when you stu-pud'er dorky Americans can't find work, they'll have to join the military. Yup . . .then we'll keep your daughters and sons in uniform . . .train them to kill towel heads or black Africans who oppose us.

    We want to rape the natural resouces of Africa, pump all the oil out of the earth to sell it to you at sky-high prices, so we can make billions of dollars in short term profits . . .who cares who gets hurt along the way . . .we don't!

    Just send us your money and have your children on call and on duty to protect our profits and our aggression.

    We love wars . . .remember our enemies are you enemies . . . and no war is bad enough to call it quits. Expect to wage war on our behalf for at least a hundred years . .. . . . . yeah, we are your masters . . . .you exist to serve us . . . you goyim are like cattle to be herded and exploited.
