    Once again, you can't go claiming that the Dems took over when Bush held the pen.

    Nice try Navy...but it was your "Great and inspired world leader" and your Republican party that created this mess.....don't blame the Democrats because they haven't been able to clean it up fast enough.

    Again, I never saw a gay soldier prosecuted under Article 125, only straight soldiers. Never said anything about heavy enforcement.

    Your ignorance of how the United States military works shows, everytime you post on the subject.

    Your ignorance of my opinion on gays serving in the military shows, even more.

    You know, if you want to compare gays to criminals and terrorists why not just say so? Instead of pretending they're the same thing constitutionally. Which they are not.

    I, oth, have only seen two gay sailors prosecuted under Article 125, they were forced to serve their time on restriction and take the other punishments of their NJP and then, after this, they were processed out for being gay. I have never seen a heterosexual sailor charged with Article 125, although there might have been a couple charged that I didn't notice because of the other, more important issue of them doing whatever they were doing on the ship.

    Article 125 needs to go away and is probably going soon after, if not when, gays are allowed to serve openly. The military should not be regulating how anyone has sex, as long as it is done in approved locations, it is consentual, and it is not considered fraternization or adultery, since both of these actually do have the potential to disrupt good order and discipline.

    An internal Pentagon study finds that most U.S. troops and their families don't care whether gays are allowed to serve openly and think the "don't ask, don't tell" policy could be dropped, the Associated Press reports, quoting officials familiar with its findings.

    Now that the results of the Pentagon study are known I'm anxious to hear what the anti-gay folk have to say about ending DADT.

    I'm particularly interested in hearing what Navy Pride has to say, especially since he has repeatedly said that if the men/women of the military were ok with gays, that he would be ok with gays in the military as well.

    Lets hear what you have to say about the results of the Pentagon poll.
    the poll didn't really address the actual issues involved with repealing DADT; it was just "how do you feel about homosexuals"? the results are therefore relatively unsurprising.

    Let me get this right...the survey that the Pentagon created specifically to address the challenges of repealing DADT does not actually address the issues of repealing DADT?

    This survey...

    http://servicemembersunited.org/survey

    ...only asks how people feel about homosexuals?
