Mullen: Troops Who Balk at Change in Gay Service Policy Can Find Other Work
FoxNews.com ^ | December 02, 2010

Posted on 12/02/2010 9:41:33 AM PST by US Navy Vet

Military members who have a problem with a change in policy to allow gays to serve openly may find themselves looking for a new job, Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, warned Thursday.

Mullen told a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing that the military is based on meritocracy, "what you do, not who you are." He said if Congress changes the don't ask, don't tell policy then the U.S. military will comply.

Meritocracy based on gender and race.

Ask any military member who served during bubba terms in office.

Congress can do whatever they want. Infantry units wil salute and say Yes Sir. But, these guys know how to deal with gays in combat units.

Mike Mullen, the first CJS in the history of the Joint Chiefs, to NOT wear the Combat Action Ribbon, or its Army/AF equivalent.

What more do you need to know about Mullen?

Interesting that a Executive Order was used for integration.

I never understood why that was never challenged by Congress, for they have the only numerated powers for the rules and regulations of the military.

I dunno if Obama would create a EO for gays.

The military was destroyed the moment the idiot population elected a foreign enemy into the executive branch.

As long as we have these 50 millions worthless numbskulls, there is absolutely no hope for this nation.

how can he separate “what” a warrior is with his/her actions? He is in la la land... someone who has different values/standards/ethics/and most important, LOYALTIES, is not going to be a good warrior! look at the he/she Manning... what was “its” loyalties? the welfare of the troops? NO! the welfare of the homos? YES!

Mullen will come to regret that statement. A lot of troops ARE going to walk as a result of this.

Long gone are the days when senior military leaders actually stood strongly for what was best for the Armed Forces.

Cue up the Village People

Where can you find pleasure
Search the world for treasure
Learn science technology
Where can you begin to make your dreams all come true
On the land or on the sea
Where can you learn to fly
Play in sports and skin dive
Study oceanography
Sign up for the big band
Or sit in the grandstand
When your team and others meet

In the navy
Yes, you can sail the seven seas
In the navy
Yes, you can put your mind at ease
In the navy
Come on now, people, make a stand
In the navy, in the navy
Can’t you see we need a hand
In the navy
Come on, protect the motherland
In the navy
Come on and join your fellow man
In the navy
Come on people, and make a stand
In the navy, in the navy, in the navy (in the navy)

With the proposition of allowing alien invaders to become citizens if they sign up and inclusion of gays and women well er, perhaps the real warriors SHOULD transfer to other occupations. There is nothing right about all of this.

Well Admiral Mullin good luck with that!

Survey results say that up to 24% of troops will not stay. Since those most opposed are the combat arms, if 10% walked, that would mean that 250,000 troops leave, that is more than the entire Marine Corps!

What is so disgusting is that Gates in retiring and Mullins will serve out his term and be done as well. Both will walk away never having to face the consequences of their actions!!!

He is a first class fool, When I retired from the Navy, I refused anything signed by bubba.

Mullen is a prime example of top leadership that FAILED.

I wish I had made a note of an article posted here a few weeks back. A freeper who is current military mentioned a poll where they were asked to vote on DADT and the freeper said overwhelmingly active duty personell did not want gays openly serving. Then the poll comes out and it is the opposite. Imagine that.

thank heavens what you say is true. I surely don’t want any warrior who is fighting for me and America to be put in danger because of a he/she who’s liable to break down in tears under stress, or worse yet, not take orders. Homos don’t want to serve America - their cause is their homo agenda.

That will justify the draft.
The draft is a leftist’s wet dream.

It reduces the effectiveness of the military. Check.
It forces “the rich” to serve. (not really, but) Check.
It causes the electorate to be reluctant about using military force in America’s interests. Check.

And the #1 reason the left loves the draft:
It makes something that formerly was voluntary, compulsory.

The rotten thing about this is that you can’t prove a negative......if this comes to pass, anytime a homosexual is inconvenienced, passed over, shunned, offended, mocked, criticized or generally made to feel bad - it will be because they are “gay” and to prove otherwise will be very difficult. Additionally, I wonder if Ad. Mullen would like his boy next to an HIV+ soldier in a fierce firefight....if they haven’t thrown their weapon down and run away already.

What is the problem these people have with just keeping their mouths shut?

The entire controversy is over "what you do" - it is about a behavior, not about a name or an ethnicity.

You know, If I were a crazy conspiratorial type, I’d wonder how it might affect the behavior of our military if Obama were to ever seize emergency powers... after having purposely driven out many of those in the military who might have opposed him. Good thing that’ll never happen.

yah...the Women at Sea Program carried much the same threat. When I was onboard USS Dwight D. Eisenhower, the Air Boss called an Air Department muster, and he told us in no uncertain terms that there would be dire consequences for any kind of sexual harassment of the females who were about to join us for three weeks of CarQuals off the Vacapes OpArea.

“If one of them is heading toward a spinning prop, and you tackle her and save her life, but touch her tits when you do, you will end up in the brig.”

Unquote.

The Navy has had problems with Women at Sea, especially with Auxiliary and support vessels like tenders where many of them land for their sea duty tour, when many of them simply popped pregnant and departed the Command overseas partway through a scheduled deployment leaving the ship undermanned in more than a few shipboard divisions.

If DADT is redacted, Mullen will find himself in a very awkward position; potentially prosecuting productive sailors who will not put up with homosexuals quietly. This is just insanity, and it will not end well. Unfortunately we will find out the hard way just how destructive this BS will be when the troops start voting with their feet and leaving the service.

Thank you for posting that. The MOST frustrating thing is that the press could care less about national security as long as they keep pressing their agenda. The irony is they put their own families at risk as well. they must be breathtakingly stupid.
