    A majority, but not all. Check out the link about the 80% sexual harassment rate in the IDF.

    What is more important to you? Sexual harassment or the lives of people? Seriously, what the **** is up with your priorities?

    Soldiers's lives are far more important. That's why I think they should spend more time training and less time dealing with stupid ****. Nothing wrong with my priorities.

    Still waiting on that link about the 300 translators.

    And, do you think that those translators are the only Arabic speaking people in the country?


    Ok, I think you just destroyed any credibility you had in this discussion with that comment. You honestly don't even know why we have Arab translators in our military ranks. That is sad.

    Happy to oblige...

    But the GAO also noted that nearly 800 dismissed gay or lesbian service members had critical abilities, including 300 with important language skills.

    Let's see a link proving that 300 Arabic translators were discharged under DADT, or admit that you're just making things up as you go. I'm thinking it's the latter.

    Annnnnnd, where exactly did I say that? I didn't, did I?

    I'm just guessing your reading comprehension sucks.

    Hate to break it to you, though, while linguists are important, they're not exactly the back bone of the military.

    Coming from a guy who cares more about sexual harassment than the lives of soldiers and civilians.
