Women fighting and dying in combat [Video]

(I’m starting a new vlog on the Liberty Theory YouTube channel. This is the first attempt.) It seems likely that women will be allowed to enter the combat arms of the military along side men for the first time. If women do end up with a significant representation in combat roles, how will society and politicians react to the inevitable increase in female deaths in combat? Do we value female lives over male ones? Will politicians be more careful about deploying troops? I am confident in saying I don’t know, maybe. Probably.
