Nice try Junior, but, your comment implies that women in the U.S. military are not as attractive as those in non-US military forces, that in itself is demeaning in a thread dedicated to honor women for their service:-
I didnt imply that they are ugly or did offend them in any way. I only stated that in my eyes women from other countries are subjectively more attractive. You found it straight offensive instead of replying by as example that can come from different roles of women in militaries in different countries, attractiveness of serving in military for women or something like that.
This is not a chit chat thread, you really need to read the first post and understand it.
