Opinion – Combat Gender Bender – A bridge too Far

Pilots edict a bridge too far. Apparently RAAF pilots have been told to think twice before bombing bridges being used by enemy troops in case it makes women walk further to fetch firewood.

The doctrine’s foreword by Air Commodore Stephen Edgeley, the RAAF’s Director-General Strategy and Planning, said embracing the “gender perspective” would enhance operational capability.

  1. Surely these comments must have been taken out of context. I can not conceive any military force putting the tactical conduct of operations in the forward weapon pit, cockpit or action station for individuals to decided the outcome.

  2. I THINK ITS ABOUT TIME FOR THE POWERS TO PROMOTE ANGUS THE STUD TO GOVERNOR OF NSW!! For a Chief of the Army TO LET THIS crap EVEN BREATH AIR is just pure shit!! WE ARE A GREAT NATION being over run by PC and GREEN SOCIALIST SHIT.
    PLEASE can we have some real BALLS at the TOP? I WONDER ARE MOST OF THESE TOP SERVICE BRASS ALL THERE??

    When you are lying on your stomach in the nose of a Canberra bomber in Vietnam 1970, looking thru a bombsight, seeing muzzle flashes from ground fire and hearing rounds going past, your only focus is on the target. You have no room for thoughts about gender, environment, or any other PC crap! The Chief of Air Force needs to cull this now! This is not the core business of the RAAF!

  4. But it has made it easier to fetch water. If the bridge is made of word bombing it would make firewood also.

  5. Wood not word* auto correct in action

  6. All I can say is that I am very pleased that during my 23 years of RAAF service the Air Commodore mentioned was not part of the Strategy and Planning team. Does he not realise that the RAAF is part of the Australian Defence Force? If what is written is true I just shake my head in amazement. If the “bridge” is making access of the enemy possible, bomb the hell out of it. !!!

    New age war doctrine should also take into account the sensibility of the LGBT vegan socialist left wing bridge watching society. Golly, its so hard to be able to do war these days, so many feelings might get hurt!…. This guys in the wrong game, clearly.
