    Dutch fury at US general's gay theory over Srebrenica

    Dutch officials have rejected a retired US general's claim that its forces failed at Srebrenica because of poor morale over openly gay soldiers.

    A defence ministry spokesman dismissed as "complete nonsense" the remarks by John Sheehan, a former Nato commander.

    Gen Sheehan had been speaking at a US Senate hearing on allowing gay people to serve openly in the US military.

    He said Dutch leaders had told him that the presence of gay soldiers had contributed to the Bosnian massacre.

    Several countries - including Britain, Canada, Australia and Israel - allow openly gay people to serve in the armed services.

    Rediculous statement. There is no way fathomable. That having openly gay soldiers could in any way cause a massacre.

    We have the gayest army in the world, you wouldn't believe the pussies in charge of our defense departement.

    Sheehan (what's in a name) proves things could be worse though.., at least retards can't join our army.

    That's a very interesting take. Its fascinating that the soldiers themselves contributed to his opinion.

    So the soldiers he talked to were lying?

    I believe he simply said it was a contributing factor not the sole reason.

    If the retired general can prove that letting gays serve openly in the army was a major contributing factor, then let's see the evidence. Given that it was studied very intensely by several different organizations and none of them collaborated in the least on what he said, I think he may have an uphill battle on his hands. Oh wait! No he doesn't because he clarified that he was talking about the liberalization of the forces into a peace keeping force rather than combatant force, which has very little to do with the sexual orientation of soldiers. I guess even retired generals can grasp at straws.

    As I recall, he named only one name when pressed for names.

    Perhaps he did not have the consent of the other soldiers to subject them to the fury of the press on this issue.

    Or maybe... he's wrong and there's nothing wrong with gay people. I know some gay guys who are some truly tough mofo's.

    Being gay does not mean that you are weak, or scared of combat. That is a negative Xenophobic view.

    Or perhaps you are wrong. He said he discussed this with fellow soldiers. Unless you can prove he is lying, this is his opinion based on real world discussions with fellow soldiers.

    And again, he said this was one factor not the entire reason for the decline.
