your point? They're still perfectly capable of punishing openly gay service members, if they thought that would be a good idea (they used to until the early 90's). They've seen that it's counter-productive.

In the case of an all-volunteer military, this is even more pertinent. Why turn away smart, able-bodied recruits? Why turn away anyone who wants to fight for their country because they won't hide who they really are to make *you* feel better?

they cant even fight the likes of egypt how formidable are they?
What if we stopped supppling them data information etc what then
Israel has crushed the Egyptian army on no fewer than three separate occasions since 1948.

I do think that we can safely scale back the billions in military aid that we send Israel, since they're perfectly capable of funding their own military-industrial complex at this point, but all of this is clearly over your head.

Bottom line - gays serve openly and effectively in many capable armies all over the world. Saying "I don't want you to serve cause gays are icky" is not in the interests of our national defense.

This is a new article, the one from yesterday is still there with comments intact.
As for this new development.
Expect it to be overturned.
Any gay recruits will get booted again.
As for all this social experimentation????
Exactly WHAT are you people talking about?
There are 28 countries that lifted their bans with no negative consequences.
They did the experimenting for us.
Yeah I know, you hate gays anyway.
Oh, my bad, you don't hate us you hate our sin.
Maybe you should start hating your own sins before you fixate on ours.
But considering how many of you are obsessed with gay sex expecially sodomy, I don't see it stoping.
I do have one question?
Exactly where are all the good truck stops now? LOL
Start clicking that empty lightbulb.
Climb back into your closets where you belong. I sure as hell wouldn't care to serve my country knowing there was a possibility of the guy next to me may have aids.

This is what I was talking about when I said you closet cases were obsessed with what we do in bed.
It's pathetic really.
Sick disgusting acts that you fantasize about doing yourself, admit it.

Just think if he had aids and he was about to give you his blood for a blood transfusion on the battlefeild.

Think of all the gays, with aids, in san fran that gave their blood to the blood banks in the 1980's.

I love how 90% of the population won't join the military but want to tell everyone else how to run it. If someone wants to join, brave enough to volunteer for war (which again 90% aren't)why is everyone scared that our military is going to fail. I have no problem serving with whoever as long as when it comes down to it, they're ready to stand next to me and fight.

You get checked for AIDS now and the way people are sleeping around now you don't have to be a gay male to have AIDS.

While I may not agree with homosexuality I will still care and support for all people, of all religions, and whatever their sexual orientation because the teaching of the Bible and the Lord Jesus Christ tell me that I am not to judge people.

Matthew 7:2-5 (New International Version)
2For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

3"Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4How can you say to your brother,'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.

John 8:7 When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, "If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her."

Matt. 7:1 "Do not judge, or you too will be judged."

Except for Walter, none of you backwoods goons can spell.
Also, such experts on the use of gerbils and petroleum jelly. Just because you are intolerant, backwards perverts does not mean the rest of us (gay or straight) are.
You posts are revealing.
And Walter - you spelling sets you apart from said backwoods perverts, but not much else does.

The social engineering under Obama and the Democrats continues. Liberal activists judges should be removed from the bench. Why this county makes acceptions for people who choose to live an alternative life style is troubling. Let's hope this policy does not get our brave men and women killed.

Actually, it is not troubling, it is 'freedom'. If it troubles you, North Korea beckons.
