You know, some of us men don't need our wife's/girlfriend's permission to think or speak. Crazy Idea, I know, but men are perfectly capable of thinking for themselves and many of us have women who respect us and our opinions. Hence the reason they're with us.

And no, women are not better leaders than men. Being a good or bad leader is quite gender-neutral.

I think it has been researched a lot that this can be said. Women are generally more emphatic, more orientated towards building a functioning group, more interested in the feelings of the members of the group.

The problem is that many women do not fancy the work load of a leadership position, do not like the responsibility and do not want to put in a situation where conflict is inevitable. So those that reach leadership position are often as bad as the typical male but rarely as bad as the stereotype alpha male.

I think you have the first part right, but either wrong or perhaps not entirely correct on the 2nd part. There have been a number of studies done on women in politics in the US. One big difference between men and women in politics is that men see politics as a valid career path and an end to itself. Women by in-large go into politics to fix something they have a passion for, or see an injustice to. This is why women don’t get wrapped up in scandal nearly as much as men. Women get into politics with a short term agenda. Fix these issues, and then resume their previous careers. (Obviously, some end up staying and become political dinosaurs.)

Also, when it comes to leadership it is much like the private sector. There is an “old boys” network that exists. Not to mention when a man is a leader you (and others) refer to him as “strong” and “alpha”, yet when women do they get called “conniving”, “bit***”, and “shrill”.

People who do claim "patriot" often are hiding behind the term, using it as a shield. As the saying goes: "patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel". For the most part actual patriots don't say anything about it. And additionally patriotism can often means going against those that use the word the most.

Your being offended is noted.

Women do employ logic better than men...argue all you want but they do.
Men employ weapons better...and that is where you coming from as gar as better leaders are concerned.

"Alpha male" has no positive meaning for me. It describes an authoritarian style of leadership used by a very egoistic person that cares little about the well being of others.

Okay to non-military(ever) civilians sharing their understanding Patriotism.

You are confusing and conflating a civilians understanding of patriotism and a military person's understanding and that is right.

..and to you people it looks like a joke to play on people's sympathies.

I hate the 'Thank you for your service' line tossed to everyone in uniform or when ever someone say they 'served'.

I hate that because you could be 'thanking a turd' who raped a few little girls in Iraq just months prior...but 99% of military are decent and good people, but just like bad cops...there's few bad apples in the ranks.

Patriotism as a totally different meaning to military people than civilians...I'll leave that to you to figure it out.

Yes, Mrs.Pelosi showed real leadership during ObamaCare, On the otherhand, Mr.Obama and Mr.Reed talked and talked and talked and talked for 18 months and finally passed a watered down dud. If they both just followed Mrs.Pelosi's lead US would have a better bill.

What false sense of security, there’s nothing false about it, the world hasn’t had a major confrontation since the end of WW2, lots of small regional conflicts but absolutely nothing that has threatened where I was born or where I live now. The wars in the Middle East are mostly due to bad US foreign policy.

Exactly ...and that false sense of 'it hasn't happened since it's not gonna..' is when you don't expect it.
You think your safety and well being is free, always there, always there for future generations...that's called taking it for granted.

You don't give any though nor appreciation to systems and people in place to 'provide you that false confidence that think is a given'. You don't know humanity.

If history has any say it's 'look out, because you won't see it coming just as they missed the signs earlier.

Self appointed world police man and you only act in your own self interest, you don't police everywhere, if you did the tragedy that was Zimbabwe and soon to be South Africa would never have happened, there are plenty more examples where the self appointed world policeman didn't act as the world policeman so don't try that BS on, it doesn't fit.

In typical US fashion the US entered both world wars late and can't take the credit for winning either of them. WW1 was all but over before the fat entered at the death, and Russia won WW2, they ground the Germans down on the Eastern Front which shortened the war and they won the race to Berlin. Kiwi Air Chief Marshal Sir Keith Parks outstanding leadership and tactical nouse won the Battle of Britain, without that victory the Germans would have won that war.

That's great an it tells me (because travel is the greatest teacher -ever) that you are (or should) define yourself as a global citizen. You are widely exposed to other nations, cultures and are comfortable among them. That is exceptional for an American. Most Americans, unlike most Europeans, do not care to venture abroad and certainly not keen on living among 'them'.

Rob, rob, rob...don't be so extreme! Can the police be everywhere in NYC?

No, of course not! And can the World's policeman. Now sure just like the cops who avoid certain neighborhoods, the world's policeman does the same.

But you are right, it is choosing where it wants to go...which is unfortunate for those who desperately needed help (and we could have provided) and did not.

Why does that happen?

Look at World's policeman's own habits in 'doing the right thing' in his own homeland from day one. It chose the easy way to get ahead, the ultimate shortcut to success, exploit, dehumanize to murder. But even this planning can be traced back to England (with early designs on the New World).
Trace that line up to today...Bill Clinton knew full well he could not send the World's police men into the middle of The Rwandan genocide in 1992.
America would not allow that, even Kosovo was lucky to get what help they got. As Americans are (and rightfully so) are getting war weary, intervening and thus the primary leader inmost global coalition efforts.

But there is no better force on Earth than you want to answer your SOS in you woke up and found the Russian Navy has attacked your country and neutered your military..or learn to like Russian way of life.
Or replace that with the Chinese military...

Other nations have those worries that you do not..many of them have no voice.

So the bottomline is 'if you really really need us, will be there*"...

The asterisk represents 'conditions apply'...meaning America chooses 'who it wants to rescue'...or not.

Maybe we should go by "World's Security Guard Limited'...

Out of all people our esteemed Kiwi would not probably mind being under the Russian boot.

Why would anyone be under any Russian boot? Who are they going to invade and how are they going to do it? I can't see them invading Norway, nor will they invade New Zealand. I'd be far more worried about the baby in the White House than anyone else.

Which can be quite a handicap to effective leadership, since it often calls for decisions to be made dispassionately.
