DON’T ASK DON’T TELL: Still in the closet!

EXCERPTS:  Washington Post article on Gays in the military:

The law, however, specifically states that the changes must be “consistent with the standards of military readiness, military effectiveness, unit cohesion, and recruiting and retention of the Armed Forces.” The option of changing the policy as long as the negative impact is just “mitigated” is not there.

In order to secure the vote of Senator Jim Webb, Democrat of Virginia, Defense Secretary Robert Gates said [4] that “neither he [Admiral Mullen] nor I would sign a certification until we were satisfied, after having consulted with each of the Service Chiefs and Combatant Commanders, that risks to combat readiness, unit cohesion, and effectiveness had, in fact, been mitigated, if not eliminated, to the extent possible for all Services, commands, and units.”

Just like the closing of Gitmo, …. it’s the implementation and management of the problem of gays joining the military, that’ll hold this up.  

Though70% of non-front line soldiers state they have no problem with gays joining, but troops in the trenches have a different perspective.   Gay military personnel will have to shower with non-gays, have to be housed with them; this is just not as simple as they’d hoped and it’s not about to come about for a while.

Those like PFC Bradley Manning, the admitted Wikileaks traitor, if you’re out there, standing in line, with the intent to subvert the military ….. you may as well go home for a few months; it just ain’t gonna happen for a while ……  That’s better than what some are saying, ….. that a lot of them will die, mistakenly, from friendly fire!

About josiahe

Watching closely, working to understand all I may, in this "Age of Information", even from my limited view, I can see much of what's going on ..... and I oft see it's going to impact all of us which is why I share it. My focus is to expose evil, and to serve my Lord and savior Jesus in whatever way He shows me. If one waits long enough, better writers will come along and comment; it's just that I have so little patience with the evil that lurks among us and I've wasted so much time and now, there is so little left! WELCOME!
