Open homosexuals will neutralize the effectiveness of the troops on the battlefield. The military will cope with this. It it is already well advanced toward making it all irrelevant. The homosexualization of combat arms gives an extra kick to making the fighting soldier obsolete in favor of electronics. Homosexuals, open or not, in front of a keyboard or operating a mouse are not the problem that homosexuals on an actual battlefield would be. Troops on the ground, where needed will more and more consist of small highly specialized units that open homosexuals will not qualify for, and mercenaries.
I stress "open" homosexuals because the military has always had its share of homosexuals. When I was in I knew a sergeant of long duration who was one such. They are different. Their identity to themselves and to others is not their homosexuality. It is the military. They keep their proclivities to themselves, go to different bars when off duty and are discrete. They do not disrupt and are not a problem. Open homosexuals are political creatures whose entire identity and life are tied up in their homosexuality. Infantry units with such in their ranks will be in a constant state of agitation and not in prime condition for combat. The entire political system of the nation, now that homosexuals are"welcomed" into the military, will be putting legal and social pressure on the military to very quickly institute quotas for homosexual officers in every unit. The military will have to take large numbers of these "men" simply because these recruits are seeking free lifetime medical care for the AIDS they believe they will probably eventually have. Ultimately it will be irrelevant as the military becomes a totally computerized killing machine.

I think it has been shown time and time again that homosexuals are a security risk.

They may invent something someday that makes the infantryman obsolete, but I can assure you it won't happen in our lifetimes or our children's lifetimes.

There have already been stories saying that repeal of DADT is not enough. The military must now recognize gay marriage and provide benefits for their partners.

The keyboard soldier does not work in real life.
