Some people will go to any lengths to justify the utterly ridiculous 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' policy of systemic bigotry and discrimination in the US military.
"The battalion was under-strength, poorly led, and the Serbs came into town, handcuffed the soldiers to the telephone polls, marched the Muslims off and executed them," Sheehan told the Senate armed services committee.
Sheehan also argued that the armies of several European "low" countries had become soft as they moved to "socialize" their militaries after the end of the Cold War and continued European unification meant that Soviet and earlier German threats were consigned to history.
"That included the unionization of their militaries," Sheehan said. "It included open homosexuality, demonstrated in a series of other activities, with a focus on peacekeeping operations because they did not believe the Germans were going to attack again or the Soviets were coming back."
Oh yes, having open homosexuals in the army has anything to do with the tactical situation in Srebrenicia. Sure. What's the next tale this moron's going to come up with?
I'd suggest the General take some time to look at the service records of the thousands of men and women that have been dismissed for the crime of being homosexual while enlisted in the army. I suspect he'll find that by far the majority served their country well - regardless of their sexuality.
