This Woman May Become One Of The Most Powerful People In The Military - Newsy

Transcript: The latest pick for combatant commander will be a woman, making history. On Friday, multiple officials announced President Barack Obama will nominate current head of Pacific Air Forces Gen. Lori Robinson. Defense Secretary Ash Carter said, "We have coming along now a lot of female officers who are exceptionally strong." If the nomination gets Senate approval, Robinson will become the head of U.S. Northern Command, one of just six regional combatant commands. This would effectively make her one of the most senior members of the U.S. military. This is not Gen. Robinson's first time pioneering the way for women in the military. In 2014, she became the first female combat commander with four stars. Robinson has filled a variety of roles in the U.S. Air Force, which she joined in 1982.

quickdraw the man: Looks like a bitch

Lonewolf Gonzalez: NITWIT obama nominating a woman that could possibly face combat just show's how STUPID he really is!!! I am all for equal right's BUT allowing a woman to possibly be in harm's way is crazy! Just think if a woman is captured what she would face. First of all you can throw out the Geneva Convention. These radical's don't follow ANY rule's. This poor lady would be subject to many attrocitie's such as torture, rape and anything else you could possibly think of! Obama has never had to dodge any bullet's, had to fight for his life in certain circumstance's so he has no idea what he's doing or what this lady could possibly face in day to day life in a war zone! Think of the bargaining power the enemy would have with a female P.O.W. There go's another 500 million dollar's of hard working american taxpayer's money. Obama is a REAL amateur when it come's to a combat zone! Obama say's he's from chicago, like that's suppose to make him tough. I grew up about 30 mile's west of downtown and I know if he went into certain part's of the city he would be bent over so fast but then he probably would like that. Obama is a light weight and has NO idea what he's doing. NONE!!! I am a decorated vietnam veteran and it really make's me sad to see what this amateur is doing to our once powerful military! I LOVE women but they should NOT be in a combat zone. You are just asking for problem's. Thank's for reading my post and God save America!!!

onlythewise1: ya its not making stupid is it

Solid Diarrhea: I want to fuck her......again

Eddie Anthony: Damn gratz girl

whoRwe02: There are always hurdles X's or O's. If she can get rid of feminine hygiene "products" inside the boots, and oil or lubricate the inflow of military funds effectively to right or correct corner and crevices - maybe. Never concentrate on the gender of any soldier - concentrate on the use of common sense wherever/whomever/whatever/hows-ever when much needed. Military is always a "battlefield".

Az B: I don't have a problem with a women being a general but she needs to fight in the war and lead during a war. you cannot lead an air force with out any experience in war. it would be a set up for the new airmen and existing ones.
