    The Pentagon and the United states government will be making a big mistake by allowing openly flamboyent homosexuals to serve in United States military forces.
    Homosexuality in and of itself is a immoral criminal act.
    The United States forces reputation will be tarnished globally by way of accepting homosexuals into their ranks. It is a big mistake. Countries where homosexuality is illegal can now look to bar U.S. military homosexual throops from their soil.

    Sorry, dude. As far as I'm concerned, anyone willing to lay down their lives to preserve the freedoms I enjoy is welcome to serve. I couldn't care less where they're getting their jollies so long as they maintain the level of professionalism expected of all military personel.

    -- They already ARE accepted into military service.

    YOU just want them to be liars because you're insecure in your own sexuality.

    Sorry, partner, but this thread is wrong on so many levels that I have to comment.

    First of all, I've served with soldiers who turned out to be homosexual. These were men who served the nation honorably with great distinction. They served during a time before DADT, and the rest of team kept it quiet within the team. In other words, nobody cared. All that mattered is that these men did their jobs and looked out after their fellow soldier.

    Second of all, get off your high horse about morality. This naive statement tells me that you never walked in the woods in the dark of night with the Devil at your side. Otherwise, you'd know that morality in the military is nothing more than a bunch of kumbaya bullshit advertised for PR purposes.

    Combat is the most immoral thing a man will ever do. War is man's brutality in its purest, ugliest form. If you've never experienced it, then you are in no position to say shit about what is and what isn't moral. Men holding hands doesn't compare to carving out someone's guts with your K-bar.

    You just haven't been there, son.

    My point is homosexuality is a sexual deviancy. If we allow homosexuals to serve in the U.S. Armed forces, then other sexual deviants will also demand to be accepted into the
    United States military services.
    I do realize that there are homosexuals serving in the military now, but those homos keep their sexuality to themselves. This is how it should remain, for the sake of unit cohesion, and moral.
    Which will be affected if don't ask don't tell is done away with.

    You sir, are the type of guy who allows me to keep a least some semblance of respect for the professionalism that our armed forces are supposed to embody. Kudos to you.

    Should we bar people who openly admit to foot fetishes from joining the military? I mean, where is the line drawn here?

    Bottom line is, the body of psychological research on militaries and civil service organizations (like fire and police departments) show that allowing open homosexuals to serve doesn't really contribute to any empirically identifiable drop in unit cohesion or morale. If that was a genuine issue, there might be some merit in your arguments, but as far as we can tell the evidence simply isn't there. It's wasteful to be losing skilled and professional people in the name of such an unnecessary prohibition.

    Also, "homos", really? Should we really base our public policy on slurs?

    I think it's a mistake allowing bigots to serve.

    They should just make them serve with the women.
