DON’T ASK – DON’T TELL (Part 2)

I’ve slugged this as Part II because I’ve already written my thoughts on the subject.  (Part I was published on February 12, 2010.  You can read it by checking the archives column on the right side of your screen.)  For those of you that don’t want to maneuver through the archives, let me just repeat the final paragraph from Part I:

If allowing homosexuals to serve openly in the military becomes the norm, I foresee a major exodus from the military followed by an immediate drop off of new volunteer recruits.  How then, do the services reach their enlistment goals each year?  The only solution will be a return to the draft.

So. here it is…eleven months later.  Where do we stand?  The democrats and even some Republicans are still hell-bent on opening up the military to homosexuals.  I would venture to say that the majority of those pushing the agenda have never served, didn’t want to ever serve, hold the military in contempt, and don’t give a damn about the results of their misguided agenda.

Results of troop surveys reveal that congressional repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell will severely impact recruiting, retention, unit cohesion and morale.

In a recent hearing on the issue, Senator John McCain warned that hundreds of thousands of valuable soldiers could flee the military because of what homosexual activists are demanding.  He said “If 12.6 percent of the military left early, that translates into 254,600 men and women who would leave the military earlier than planned.  Do you think that’s a good idea to replace 265,600 troops in a time of war?”

Bob Maginnis, military analyst added “Twelve point six percent is just the people who said they WOULD leave.  If you add in the number who said they MIGHT leave, you get 23.7 percent.  That would be 528,000 when you count active duty and reserves.”  Those statements from those “in the know” underscore my prediction contained in Part 1 of a mass exodus from the military should the homosexual acvists get their way.

It would be wise to remember the words of Lt. Colonel Oliver North who said “No nation has ever had a better military than today’s all-volunteer U.S. Armed Forces.  The best trained, best equipped, most experienced.  But now, there are those who intend to put the capabilities of this extraordinary force and our nation’s security at risk–just to carry out a radical social exeriment.

DON’T ASK – DON’T TELL

It’s very easy–(and clever)– to say “homosexuals should be allowed to serve their country just like anybody else.”  The medi has jumped on this “gays in the military” thing, pushing hard in news items and editorial content hoping to persuade congress to lift the ban.

Admiral Mullen, Chairman ofthe Joint Chiefs of Staff serves “at the pleasure” of the president.  If Obama doesn’t like him,. he can be booted, and replaced by any officer willing to bend over and grab his ankles to do Obama’s biding.  Admiral Mullen now says he agrees with Obama, and homosexuals should be allowed to serve openly.

Truth is, homosexuals are allowed to serve already.  The only caveat is to keep their mouth shut and don’t tout their sexual proclivities.  Sounds reasonable to me…..if they truly want to serve their country.  Another truth:  THEY WANT MORE!  They want to serve openly. That’s the key word and it doesn’t mean they just want it to be okay to admit who and what they are.

They want to be able to exhibit it.  If an enlisted man, a chief or officer wants to take his girlfriend or wife to an on-base club for an evening out for dinner and dancing, the homosexual (serving openly) will demand the same.  Equal rights, or it’s discrimination.  When it first happens, on-base clubs will clear out because normal people simply do not want to witness two men dancing together, holding hands, and cuddling up.  On base clubs will deteriorate to nothing more than hangouts for homosexuals and eventually close up altogether.

The close confines of life onboard ships will change drastically, with the prevalence of AIDS, Hepatitis, tuberculosis, and all the other disease associated with the homosexual lifestyle.  A Brazilian General recently stated that homosexuals in the Brazilian military cannot be assigned to command positions, simply because subordinates will not obey any commands from a homosexual.

The bottom line here is, homosexuals are not oozing patriotism in their attempts to serve openly in our military.  Homosexuals trying to become Boy Scout leaders aren’t filled with a desire to simply teach young boys how to pitch a tent in the woods and sing songs around a campfire, either.

Our military is an all-volunteer force.  As Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North pointed out “No nation has ever had a better military than today’s all-volunteer U.S. Armed Forces.  The best trained, best equipped, most experienced.  But now, their commander-in-chief intends to put the capablities of this extraordinary force and our nation’s security at risk to carry out a radical social experiment.”

If allowing homosexuals to serve openly becomes the norm, I foresee a major exodus from the military followed by an immediate drop off of new volunteer recruits, exept for homsexuals.  How then, do the services reach their enlistement goals each year?  The onloy solution will be, a RETURN OF THE DRAFT!”
