    You mean like the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, a 4 star General? Or the Secretary of Defense who was first appointed by George W Bush? Or do you mean Colin Powell, retired U.S. Army 4 star General and Bush's Secretary of Defense and Secretary of State, also a former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff ... another republican? Do you mean those kinds of bleeding heart liberals?

    ........If that happened that would mean some of you young people would be able to see how it feels.......I wonder if you might change your mind on the issue.....
    Let's see if I understand this. If DADT is rightly repealed it would mean that more qualified military persons would be able to remain in the military. And since they wouldn't need to be replaced the military would actually need less new personnel. So, only if DADT remains law would there be a need for the draft.

    Got that Navy?

    Seems Navy got cold feet. Maybe he realized his goof after he read the article and realized how stupid the Repubs sound.

    With the push for overturning DADT gaining momentum and the support of Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Michael Mullen, conservative fearmongering about the potential effects of repeal have gone into overdrive with suggestions that the policy change would “mortally” damage the all-volunteer military. During a hearing with Mullen and Defense Secretary Robert Gates today, Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) warned that allowing “the presence in the armed forces of persons who demonstrate a propensity or intent to engage in homosexual acts” would pave the way for allowing “alcohol use, adultery, fraternization, and body art” in the military. On CNN today, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins suggested it could lead to the re-institution of the draft:

    PERKINS: Let’s go back to the Military Times in 2008 had a poll of active duty military members. Fifty-eight percent said they were opposed to overturning this policy. And many have said that this will cause them to reconsider whether or not they will stay in the military. And it will have an impact upon recruiting. I mean this is an issue of retention and recruitment for the military and it ultimately could lead back to the imposition of a draft in order to fill the numbers and quotas in the military.

    Perkins’ draft claim was echoed in a statement today by Rabbi Yehuda Levin of the Rabbinical Alliance of America, who also suggested that repealing DADT could cause earthquakes and other natural disasters. Watch it: [on the link below]

    More fear mongering from the fear mongering party.

    Please give me a source other than a liberal news site. I dont buy into the whole draft fear mongering (in regards to this issue).
