    Gawd, it's like people haven't heard of "friendly fire".
    It will happen if this is implemented during war time.

    And btw, it isn't discrimination.

    Either way, this isn't that huge of an issue. Ending DADT could cause problems, but in the long run it will work itself out.
    I think the Democrats are about at the height of power that our country will really allow. I think they've gotten every vote that they can possibly get. All they have to from here, is down. It doesn't matter how well they do, they can't keep this strength.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    Really?


    simple. you take one guy who has an irrational fear of being assaulted by another's blood engorged member, now given this he may not be focusing on the mission. now rational or not you introduced this fear with your social engineering in the middle of a war, now instead of scanning and panning with his 50-cal for haji, he is thinking about that "damn fag" riding shotgun in the hmmwv.... his focus is lost. that potentially kills three-four people right there.






    It may not be. but would you not air on the side of caution in the middle of 2 wars?

    If irrational fears make a soldier lose focus, he has no business being a soldier.

    How many male on male rapes happen between adult males outside of prisons? How many of these are actual acts of homosexuality (It's a crime about power)?

    Yes, I have. working 18 hour shifts does not give a lot of time for "looiking for action".

    Army deployments and Navy deployments are two different things. We didn't get "port breaks" when deployed.

    What you are talking about is TDY to us.

    Either way, if you are saying your Navy compadres can not handle themselves honorably while on port breaks, that is your problem, not the Don't ask Don't tell policy.

    The Navy guys that I have worked with in Korea were always honorable.

    Again, you may be right.

    You think that our soldiers would murder another one just because he chooses not to put his penis into a vagina?
    If so, then we have way more desperate issues than whether or not gays are allowed in the military

    Maybe so, but it is a reason why it shouldn't be implemented during war time.

    It has happened before, but if they're brave enough to join the military I'm sure they can probably put up with it.

    If we can't do it during wartime all it says to conservatives is that what they need to do is use delaying tactics during peace and wait until some conflict breaks out and they'll be able to deny gays their rights forever.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?
