This must be getting very difficult to rationalize....

Defense Secretary Robert Gates has given "the okay" for the Military to recruit foreigners with a background in medicine and language skills. Many of these positions once belonged to Americans that were forced out from serving under the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.

From VetVoice:

In other words, the military is forced by law to recruit non-Americans for these "vital" positions over patriotic Americans who happen to be gay. Consider, the Pentagon says it has a "chronic shortage" of linguists. But the military forced
out 58 gay Arabic linguists
in 2007. And now, they're attempting to replace those 58 trained, gay linguists with foreigners.

Let's take a look at what's happening here: As the AP says, the Pentagon is trying to find 1,000 foreigners to fill these positions. But from 2002 through 2006, the military kicked out 3,715 troops under the Don't Ask, Don't Tell Policy. Think any "doctors, nurses, and linguists" were included in there?

Just think how Army relations will change when your foxhole buddy is gay. You no longer have to pull the pork yourself, anymore. Broke back grunts can have a tighter military bond, from giving mouth-to-mouth whether needed or not to greater enthusiasm for body cavity searches. I think Uncle Sam, the ole pedophile, missed the boat on don't ask don't tell.

Is your comment an attempt at snark? Or are you really a homophobic asshole?

Got to be snark, but if not, it does point out the egotism of the homophobe. They seem to think that they will be attractive to all homosexuals, just like heterosexuals find ALL women attractive.

Who cares if Comment 1 appears homophobic.

If it allows Anonymous to rationalize "Live and let live," why not?

He'll soon see that people are people, and mere gender does not, by itself, make a person attractive to another.
