Why The Neutralist? The term Isolationist implies a narrow Fortress America outlook and is used as an epithet. The term Neutralist does not indicate someone hiding out from the world. No one calls the Swiss isolationists. The Wilsonian world view is old, tired and wrong. Our interventions have been less and less successful and now the failure can no longer be covered up.

All must have prizes-women can kill!
I commend the article "Women in Combat" by Stephen Browne. I disagree with him in some matters and he is certainly not a neutralist. His article is a concise examination of the question.
He points out women have served well in places, amongst other duties as Soviet snipers. I don't know if he is aware of the "Night Witches" an amazing group of flyers who terrorized the Wehrmacht. These lasses beat the Germans in biplanes. The Neutralist does not believe in equality, but hardly denies that the heroism and effectiveness of, as the Brits say, horses for courses.
The Neutralist sees this integration as part of the gender spoils system. As such, it will not enhance military power. A degradation will ensue.
One might say, the Neutralist would be encouraged by such a development. It can only hasten the day when the imperialist absurdity crashes. We don't. The crash due to our forces deteriorating can only be horrible.
note: I first became aware of Mr. Browne reading his article on the Saudis. Maybe his writing is a lie, but it sounds logical, if not brilliant, to me. I thank him for saving me the necessity of a trip to KSA.
