The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

No, it's not about ability. I've known females, both in and out of the service that would make fine infantry soldiers, which is why I've thought for some time that the U.S. Army and Marine Corps should field all female units, to include all female combat arms units (infantry, armor, cavalry and artillery), just like the Soviets did during WW2--female soldiers, female NCO's and female officers. That would solve the unit cohesion problem, because then, members of an entire unit would be able to be housed together, accordingly.
We've argued this over and over before, although thinking 80-90% of the military is going to get out is complete fantasy and you have nothing to back up those numbers. Anyway, I'm curious as to what you expect to see happen in the next year or two. You are convinced the military will fail or at least suffer in a great way, how will you measure that effect? A year or two from now, how will you measure the effect you are sure will happen.
In fact, how do you measure anything you say? I'm saying this now because I'm certain you are going claim you were right all along, and probably post some sob story from a Soldier who got out the military in disgrace for something related to fellow Soldiers, who happen to be homosexual. However I believe you have no way what-so-ever to measure the effects you are talking about, the 80-90% of the military quitting speculation shows that.
