This Makes Perfect Sense
"Women have always been the primary victims of war. Women lose their husbands, their fathers, their sons in combat."All right, let's mull this over. First off, I can agree that men do not lose their husbands in combat, so. . . score one for the ladies!
But men DO sometimes lose fathers or sons in combat. So, call this one even-steven.
But wait, here comes the big cruncher: follow me closely! Men do NOT lose their wives, their mothers, their daughters in combat. Thus, if a particular woman loses her husband in combat, that same husband has NOT lost his wife. Or. . . if a particular woman loses her father in combat, that same father has NOT lost his daughter. Or. . . if a particular woman loses her son in combat, that same son has NOT lost his mother.
So, I think you can easily see that overall, men are not the primary losers in war because in most cases as exampled here, men simply do not suffer comparable losses!
Thank you so much, Secretary Clinton, for clearing that serious matter right up for us!
