    Will I now hear "Let's let generals other than the ones who disagree with me decide the issue"? Or will I hear "Let's let some random privates decide the issue, as long as they don't disagree with me"? Or possibly "Let's get an opinion from military cooks, as long as they don't disagree with me"?

    Here is the way I see it -

    1) If someone wants to defend the United States against its enemies, I don't care if he or she is gay, or straight, or whatever. Besides, his or her sexual orientation is none of my damn business, unless he or she is disrupting other troops by hitting on them. There are rules for that already in the military for straights. They will apply to gays too.

    2) If gays serve in the military, I will also thank them for their service, because I love my country, and I know they do too.

    To those who don't like the idea of gays serving in the military, you might as well prepare to accept it. It is going to happen sooner or later, and it is going to be a benefit to our military, rather than a liability.

    Article is here.
    Your right on the mark but, you forgot who they have to serve with meaning eat, sleep, train, fight together. On screw up and the homosexual references will be brought up with those who they serve with as being the cause. The desention amongst the ranks, distrust, predijuce, hatred etc. Then the next thing you know we have FF/frag in the field.

    And yet they are already serving with homosexuals. You know, eating with homosexuals, showering with homosexuals, making dick jokes infront of homosexuals. It seems like you assume that DADT has kept homosexuals out of the military, and now open service is going to bring everything crashing down....

    I did join, as do many "lefties". Do we not count since we don't agree with you?

    They already do.

    And they would be disciplined. Just like people who use racist language, sexist language etc.

    How many FF incidents are there in the military every year? Maybe a dozen? Maybe? And this is with a military that already has disagreements, distrust, prejudice and hatred inside of it. No your argument simply does not hold water.
