Submariners take over Vatican security

Well, that is what it sounds like.
"I can't imagine that we would open up the Swiss Guard to women," its current commandant, Colonel Elmar Mader, said in response to a question. He said that barracks in the Vatican were "small and cramped" and he did not want disciplinary difficulties.
"They are young and I don't want to enlist problems," he said. "I'm not saying that women are not qualified to be in security forces, but it is a question of discipline."
Ahem. Well, we know what some the 1120s think, and counter-think.

PS. Make sure and read the whole story for a VERY cool history lesson.
