    The younger generations, those who fight America's 21st century wars, largely don't care about whether someone is gay or not-and they do not link job performance with sexual orientation.
    One in four U.S. troops who served in Afghanistan or Iraq knows a member of their unit who is gay (Zogby, 2006).
    The Public Overwhelmingly Supports Lifting the Ban
    Majorities of weekly churchgoers (60 percent), conservatives (58 percent), and Republicans (58 percent) now favor repeal (Gallup, 2009).
    Seventy-five percent of Americans support gays serving openly - up from just 44 percent in 1993 (ABC News/Washington Post, 2008).
    Ban Hurts Military Readiness
    The U.S. must recruit and retain the greatest number of the best and brightest-especially during two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
    The military has discharged almost 800 mission-critical troops and at least 59 Arabic and nine Farsi linguists under "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" in the last five years.

    Show me where I ever doubted that. I never did.
    The only thing I ever said about it is that over a 10 year period it is not that big of a number.

    BTW if "I Lose"....why are you running away from your own link?

    Probably because it says exactly opposite of what your outdated beliefs say.

    EXACTLY!

    His own link says that young people and the soliders of today, overwhelmingly support ending DADT.

    He wants to cherry pick the parts of the link that he likes and disregard the rest.

    ........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 If DADT is rightly repealed it would mean that more qualified military persons would be able to remain in the military.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?

    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.

    I did not mean to upset you lefties so much but it would almost be fun to see DADT repealed and watch you draft eligible people whine.....No I can't do that to my shipmates....Damn!!!
