I agree with you Kathy. My husband said that the last war where they tried to prevent civilian deaths as much as possible was World War 1 and that in the Civil war although over 660 thousand males died, only 60 women were killed He than said they should have protected the 60 women better even if it meant more males died. I do have to say I agree with him too.

Since wars are primary a male thing, I think we should keep women out of the wars and if anyone is killed, they should only be males as males are more expendable than women are.
