About time. Other armies have managed and not fallen apart when gays have been able to express their sexuality, including the British Army. There are many more important issues facing soldiers than sexuality.
Oh dear, this guy says he has a sense of humour, yet his reaction to a joke is going on a par with those islamists over those cartoons. A bit of an over reaction. Typical PC nonsense. It was a joke that even gay people would find funny...get over it muppet.
Best part of a year in and Barry's delivered zilch to the netroots. No Iraq withdrawal, no progress on The Pals, no gitmo closure, nothing for the tree huggers etc. In some ways it's just Bush's third term camouflaged by flashy oratory. Deceived by his skin tone and empty sermons progressives find themselves led by a timid centrist clinging to failed Washington consensus verities, fond of half measure and throwing useless sops to the gleefully negative GOP. He's about to stage a moderate surge in the increasingly unpopular Pashtun war. Like TARP and the stimulus packages health care reform has turned into a tax payer funded pork fest for the corporations.
Surely as 'point-man',everyone else is behind them? I think you are alluding to the fact that no-one would want to be behind a homosexual man,on the off chance that he tried to commit buggery with any other man who was in front of homosexual man.
I would of thought that whilst on foot patrol,IED's,snipers and other nasty surprises would be of more concern.
