Got nothin’

The interwebs are pretty slow today, and so am I. I just can’t find anything that catches my interest.

The only thing I saw that was interesting is this- Blackfive is leading an online joint statement from various milbloggers calling for the end of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.

Fair enough. I can understand their point of view. But I’m not ready to share it. And I find it interesting that they claim it on behalf of milbloggers, but didn’t use the milblogging.com community to reach out to us smaller guys to see what we thought. I’m sure a good many of them would have signed on as well.

  1. XbradTC,
    Not really ‘calling for the end of DADT’, but asking congress not to take ANY action before the service-chiefs complete their study and make a recommendation on the action, if any, to take.

  2. The US Military is professional and ready to adapt to the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell without compromising its mission. Echoing Sec. Def. Gates and ADM Mullen, we welcome open and honorable service, regardless of sexual orientation.

    Sounds like a call for the end of DADT to me. And that’s supported by their further comments and writings. Now, most of these people have held this position for some time. I’m not saying it is wrong. I’m just not sure it is the right decision to make.

    Generally, most troops will try to do the right thing. But when the Diversity Industry gets involved, there will be unintended consequences that will distract the services from their core mission.

    How will the services react to members being married, in the eyes of state law, to another member of the same sex? Will they be sued to provide quarters? Other allowances and preferences in orders?

  3. The repeal of DADT will be a “diversity” nightmare. The bullies are licking their chops even now.

    If this goes through, the corrosive nature of it will spell the end of the effectiveness of the military. I’ve been warning kids for years to stay out ofthe socially engineered military. Repeal of DADT will be fatal.

    1. Brad, any thing that morally weakens the military will be fatal. From what I’m seeing the military is already reeling from the diversity nonsense, and allowing queers to serve openly and force it down everyone else’s throat is not only not going to be pretty, it ain’t gonna end well.
