    One would have to ask, is it wise to implement social change in the middle of two wars?



    Why do this now, and not wait until peace time? will it affect moral? less than most think, more than others. But the fact that troops are dying, do we want to mess with a social status quo at this moment?
    Are you saying that our troops can't adapt?

    It's not like anything will change. Gays already in the army could come out. Big deal. Obviously they were doing their job just fine before. They would continue to do so.

    Also the Spartans managed to kick a lot of ass while ****ing it too.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    I can just see a scene playing out, where after DADT is dropped, two guys who never suspected each other go in to report to their commanding officer at the same time.

    Rampant sex does. I served on a mix company surface ship, plenty of that going on. Fraternization IS a problem, whether you want to accept that or not.

    I just don't like social tinkering with the military. How's that? It was a mistake to put women on ships, and now here comes another social experiment. Sheesh.

    exactly the opposite. they can, the 1% though that cant may have a detrimental affect on the 99% who dont care.

    I bet I know more gays that served in the military than you, honorably..... just sayin... I am also saying that if you change a policy like this in the middle of a war you are gonna get someone killed. not one life is worth a social experiment/change for ones political agenda.

    You want to take this leap, fine, do it in peacetime, don't mess with potentially morale busting social changes in the middle of a war.
