    And what benefit could it have to morale? This would discourage actual teamwork and unity. And, not all straight troops care if they serve with a homosexual. In fact, I'd be willing to bet that most could care less. Even some now, who are adamant about maintaining DADT, are more afraid of change. They don't really know what will happen, they are just afraid that it might be bad because it isn't what they are used to. Most likely, once they see that their life didn't change that much, they will get over it and move on.
    I was being absolutely sardonic. But it could work in the sense of public outrage. Make something wrong even worse. Then maybe it will actually get more media attention.
    Yes for some reason people make the argument that gays in the military affect morale and productivity. What i stated above is probably the last thing we would want to do :-).
    I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

    Sorry. I'm really bad at spotting sarcasm in posts.

    Obviously I agree. I have argued with people who would love to do just what you suggested though.
