    I am not ignoring or failing to figure any of that, but for the rate of harassment to increase, you need more people committing harassment. This is not a complicated concept.

    Not as different as you might think. Not to mention, we could learn alot from the IDF, which is an incredibly effective service. Further, Canada, which is basically a suburb of the US, also has managed to integrate gays and straits, as has a fair number of other countries.

    And you seem to be ignoring that I just provided a reasoned argument for how this policy could be leading people to needlessly die. Now either you provide an argument for how this policy is saving more people than it is probably killing, or I think you need to concede that your little "sexual harassment" argument doesn't amount to **** compared to the lives of the men and women in the field and here at home.

    Yeah, the IDF is clicking along just fine. 80% of the soldiers in the IDF have claimed to have been sexually harassed.

    As I stated before but you ignored...

That is intelligence that could prevent needless deaths. Now maybe in your distorted world view, you could justify people dying for this policy, but I can't.

    The same things were said about women serving in the military. Funny how the majority of woman serve without incidence.

    When did this happen?

    When you dismiss 300 Arab translators just because they are gay during a time of war when such translators are in short supply,
    And, do you think that those translators are the only Arabic speaking people in the country?
