So, if 1 in 5 gay recruits in the new military had HIV, and, given the bleeding that occurs in combat, we should be able to cripple the military in very short order. And we can use most or all of the VA’s funding to treat HIV and AIDS. Eliminate certain recruiting standards, relax certain boot camp training procedures, and we’ve found a perfect way to give gay men free treatment for life.
Add to that the democrats’ contempt for the military and their desire to defund national defense and security, and you have a two-front war on the military, which it can’t effectively fight since all of its soldiers are in the hospital getting treatment for HIV and AIDS.
I believe that the military is checking for HIV status as part of a routine medical screening before induction and rejecting the infected, but that might be deemed "discrimination" in a future gay friendly military.
I don't think that bleeding from wounds will cause a lot of HIV infections; but the perception of risk would certainly inhibit contact with men of uncertain HIV status which might inhibit combat effectiveness.
Another concern is with emergency blood transfusions which are done in combat situation where FDA approved blood products are not available or whole blood is preferred. See Emergancy Blood Transfusions
