SAS goes PC on qualifications

Britain’s most elite special forces unit could allow women to take an easier test to increase their chances of joining, it has been reported.
The SAS, whose selection process is considered among the toughest in the world, could be planning to permit female applicants to carry lighter rucksacks during gruelling marches.
Troops hoping to enter the legendary unit are expected to pass uniquely difficult challenges – some of which are so intense that candidates have died trying to complete them.

  1. hey what? luis says:

    The test should be how to make us a sandwich whenever we want, how fast can you get us a cold beer, knowing how to set up targets at 10, 25, 100 yards. Know when to speak………
    Just like in the Lane house hold..

    Next you know, they’ll be dropping their pink rucksacks five time a day to kneel before their pedo-king.

      The only time you’ll see pink near the Regiment is on its ‘Pinkies’. If you don’t know what those are, stay silent rather than proving your foolishness.

    And the point in lowering the standards to allow for females in is what again?

    Stupid! Just stupid!

    If the female in question can’t complete the training on par with the males in the unit then said female doesn’t belong in said unit. That’s equality.

    RANGERS last year, SAS now SEALS soon.

    Well, the US Rangers are having the same problem.

    Please, Gen. Mattis, stop this shit from happening.

    Ah, yes. The old “We’re not lowering standards, we’re leveling the playing field.” Next year I want to go to baseball spring training and get soft tosses when batting and have the bases 50 feet apart.

    l noticed even during basic in Oz they were “lowering the bar”, we were the last intake to do the “challenge” with field packs, the intake after us got to toss their packs in the back of the truck and run it free. Ditto the 10 mile stretcher run, (one man in the squad get hauled 10 miles in a makeshift stretcher using 8 foot long 6″ pine logs for kicks hehe. (Feb 1980 intake).Now l hear 1RTB Kapooka has even turned co-ed.

    Might as well install wheelchair ramps out in the mountains where they train, too. Can’t be discriminating against the handicapped.

    There is already a second set of standards for women. It makes me want to puket o hear them complain about how hard it is ‘being a woman in the military’. They have NO IDEA how easy they have it. Everything they have to earn is handed to them. Its been my personal experience that about 1 out of every 10 of them are actually good at their job, on par with men. The military is making up for a lot of ‘women are paid less than men for the same job, though’ because women get paid the same as men, but do a fraction of the work. All the hard jobs still get done by men.

    Men are hardwired to protect women. It’s biology. This will put the soldiers in unnecessary danger, as they will be distracted. If women want to be elite soldiers, start a new regiment for them. I’m sorry but this MADNESS is going to tear this elite crew into a farce .

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
