BearingArms: Pull up your search engine of choice and do an image search for “dead female soldier.”
Whether you use Google or Yahoo or Bing you aren’t going to find a lot beyond staged photos.
Why? Because most combat photographers avoid taking pictures of the female casualties of war under the orders of both their military commanders and (depending on who their bosses are) news networks. Watching a formerly beautiful young woman’s life drain out, and her eyes go blank, is simply not something that the American people are ready to face, even though we know that our all volunteer military has women fighting and dying in wars.
As a general rule, American’s attempt to keep women in non-combat roles and away from the front lines. That doesn’t always work out well.
They get shot. They get blown up. They get captured. They get tortured. They get raped. It’s a harsh fact most of us don’t even want to consider.
We’re going to have to start considering it a lot more if Hillary Clinton is elected President. MORE
