Front line troops

Recommended Posts

David C announced yesterday that females in the armed services will now be able to be members of front line troops going into combat. I know this has been on the cards for a while, but nothing was being done to advance the move and to all intents and purposes it was well and truly on the back burner.. Then out of the blue, he makes this announcement yesterday that with immediate effect females will be allowed in combat units. This, in the middle of the changes that are afoot. No further discussion, arguments, a done deal in fact.


My cynical steak has woken up and I am thinking why has he done this now? Is it a bit of a smokescreen to hide something else that may be announced in the next few days.

George Brown signed treaty days before a General Election doing a huge amount of damage to the country. Perhaps DC is doing the same. Why should he do it at this time. He must know that it would be a contentious issue. He should have left it for the new government under the new Prime Minister.
