    Yes, I can attest to the fact that the female attack helicopter pilots I met were pretty "business oriented" and ruthless. Stellar reflexes and no hesitation in using them.

    Israel uses females in IDF, although they keep them away from infantry because male soldiers tend to make irrational decisions in protecting female soldiers on the battlefield (due to instincts), therefore making female/male infantry mix ineffective.
    We studied this in military school. If I'm not mistaken, I believe it is still the primary reason keeping women out of infantry and armor branches in the US Army.

    Very interesting. I guess we might be more "equal" than I originally imagined.

    I hear you
    But you're not allowed to, there must be no harmony between NT and NF given the present climate on the forum and the fact that we are posting this sweet little discourse on a thread entitled "The Art of War" is not gonna go down favourably. What is our angle gonna be Nighthawk, The art of war is 'Hearing' eachother?! COme on I'll get my story straight and you get yours

    Von Clausewitz hit the nail on the head when he stated that war is simply politics by other means.

    I'll return to this topic later, since it's been one that's interested me since I was a child.

    Let's keep some things in mind. A million women served in the Red Army during WWII, and since total Soviet military strength reached a height of 12 million....well do the math. Yet out of that million, only a quarter million were ever trained to actually shoot....so again do the math.
