Should have included congress in this .
To steal a technique from the commie ‘RATS, this is going to put all of our military people in danger. Anyone captured by the muzzie terrorists will be accused of being a homosexual and will probably be hanged.
In high- and medium-intensity wars, a lot of the blood for wounded personnel in forward units would come from their fellow soldiers. This may even be the case in Iraq and Afghanistan today...I'm just assuming with largely unmolested supply trains, much of the blood needed by our wounded comes from stateside, and has gone through the necessary screening to ensure it's untainted by HIV.
But I digress. I've talked with Vietnam veterans who told me that when the casualties came rolling in more than a few at a time, and blood supplies on hand came up short, soldiers and Marines themselves rolled up their sleeves and gave blood to save their buddies. When we find ourselves in another high-intensity conflict in the future, there won't be time to test each and every pint for HIV, and the likelihood of passing on infected blood from a forward-deployed homo would be great. So not only would our troops have been wounded by the enemy, they would have sustained further wounds, possible fatal wounds, from the HIV-infected blood of forward deployed homos.
Quick digression: anyone who wants to argue that HIV is also spread by heterosexual sex and/or intravenous drug usage, check the CDC statistics. AIDS always has been, and continues to be, an overwhelmingly male homosexual disease. /digression
OTOH, if homo troops were classified non-deployable, and left behind when the unit got orders to move, what would that do to unit effectiveness? Key positions would be unfilled. The unit couldn't fight the way it trained, because a member or members of the team would be stateside, given the risk they posed to the vital blood supply.
Then again, there's Limbaugh's indisputable reasoning on women in combat, which applies equally well to homos in the military, in combat units or otherwise. It goes like this:
1)Do we have the strongest military in the world, as it is today? Arguably yes.
2)Would we continue to have the strongest military if we excluded all homosexuals from serving? Absolutely yes.
3) Would we continue to have the strongest military if we had only homosexuals serving? Absolutely not.
4) Then it logically stands to reason that for every homosexual who's serving instead of a heterosexual, we weaken the military that much. If there are 10,000 homos in uniform rather than 10,000 heterosexuals, the military is 10,000 troops weaker than it would otherwise be.
This is in addition to everything Elaine Donnelly said. I am pi**ed to no end about what they're doing to the US Army in which I served for 11 years, and to which I gave both my shoulders and one knee.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
You know, I really wish people on all sides of the debate and especially on the conservative side would stop referring to DADT as a ban on gays serving in the military. The policy explicitly PERMITS gays to serve provided they keep quiet about being gay. The policy replaces the old policy which actually WAS an outright ban.
Served with a guy who was gay.
He didn’t seem to comprehend that “Hands off” meant “Hands off”.
He learned the hard way.
He got his face beat in a couple times.
Yes, striking down the law would open the military up to a flood of abusive behavior perpetrated by homosexuals.
And I DARE any of the pro-homo trolls to try and say otherwise.
A better law would be onwe that banned Islamics from serving in the US military...
No homosexual has murdered several of his fellow servicemen in a massacre...
IMPEACH THE JUDGE who found her own law, and disbar her.
Would that guy get out of his obligation?
Just a couple more - FACTS are what is important, not emotion. And the facts prove without a shadow of a doubt that mentailly ill sex perverts need to be OUT of the military.
