Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

Army 1st Lt. Ashley White died on the front lines in southern Afghanistan last weekend, the first casualty in what the Army says is a new and vital wartime attempt to gain the trust of Afghan women.

For most folks, no news is good news; for the press, good news is no-no news, and people everywhere confuse what they read in newspapers with true news.

That site is pretty hardcore, I dont believe that death is predictable. If it were, we would surely know about it by now and it would long be mandatory for everybody to carry his death date certificate with him at all times like his ID here.

Anyway, sorry for the lady that got blown away with her male team mates, but I feel it is typical US American to start a discussion about women on the frontline for that sad loss: Female soldiers are soldiers like their male counterparts, and I find it arkward to make a difference for sex here (not talking the role associated mission differences here, just the plain gender difference).

What had me wondering in the article is that from the moment the decision was taken to field female soldiers in as critical assetts it took over two years to actually see the first deployed. The Green Machine at its best for you...  Kwaad
