Hah, I got a good laugh out of that. I don't doubt that woman are absolutely capable of possessing a killer instinct. Also I have seen that women can be resourceful, calm under pressure, capable of withstanding a substantial amount of physical and mental duress while remaining effective and able to perform as team leaders or team members with a high degree of efficiency. I have known many women who who would be great in combat situations. The problem I have with putting women into combat is a psychological one, and it's my problem, not theirs.
