On “Morning Joe” today, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough dared to suggest that Barack Obama and Leon Panetta’s new policy that women can service in frontline combat roles should be carefully implemented to make sure it does not end up putting lives at risk. The way he said it was thought-provoking: “There’s a reason why there are no women in the NFL.”

Scarborough clarified what he was getting at:

“I’m not saying I don’t want women in combat. Women can be in combat, but I’ll be damned, if we find out that the Pentagon is lowering standards for politically correct reasons.”

While the focus has been on the attacks against U.S. Embassies around the world, Israel appears to be moving closer to taking decisive action to stop Iran from developing Nuclear Weapons:

UK TELEGRAPH: Battleships, aircraft carriers, minesweepers and submarines from 25 nations are converging on the strategically important Strait of Hormuz in an unprecedented show of force as Israel and Iran move towards the brink of war.

Western leaders are convinced that Iran will retaliate to any attack by attempting to mine or blockade the shipping lane through which passes around 18 million barrels of oil every day, approximately 35 per cent of the world’s petroleum traded by sea.

A blockade would have a catastrophic effect on the fragile economies of Britain, Europe the United States and Japan, all of which rely heavily on oil and gas supplies from the Gulf.

The Strait of Hormuz is one of the world’s most congested international waterways. It is only 21 miles wide at its narrowest point and is bordered by the Iranian coast to the north and the United Arab Emirates to the south.

In preparation for any pre-emptive or retaliatory action by Iran, warships from more than 25 countries, including the United States, Britain, France, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, will today begin an annual 12-day exercise. . . . Read More

In fairness, I think Obama was trying to say the right thing. But there is no need to add “generally” to “proud” when it comes to the men and women of our Armed Forces. They have spent 10+ years fighting and dying for the people of Afghanistan and Iraq. We are “proud” of them.

Here is video of Newt Gingrich saying Obama’s Secretary of Defense – Leon Panetta – should “resign tonight” if he really believes the United States must seek “permission” from the international community in deciding whether to take military action. Gingrich was referring to incredible remarks made by Panetta in testimony before Congress this week:

Here is video of CNN’s John King asking Sen. Rick Santorum what he thinks about the Pentagon moving toward a larger “frontline” combat role for women in the U.S. Military. Santorum praised the service of women in the military, but said:

“I do have concerns about women in frontline combat. I think that could be a very compromising situation where people naturally may do things that may not be in the interests of the mission because of other types of emotions that are involved. You know it already happens with the camaradarie of men in combat, but I think it would be even more unique if women were in combat, and I think that’s probably not in the best interests of men, women or the mission.”
