Quote# 69997

[The result of ending "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"?]

A list should be made, I’ll start with a few:

1. More AIDS blood (etc) bleeding onto people who don’t have it yet.

2. More homosexual rape (and moves on) of other homosexuals and normal men (and women).

3. After #2, violence against homosexuals.

4. Loss of morale - big time - due to the above reasons, plus the favoritism homosexuals will show each other.

5. Mass exodus from the military of normal men (and women), leaving a weakened and pathetic military with a huge number of homosexuals.

It will ruin the military as we know it. And if anyone says “Well, Britain etc has homosexuals in the military and they’re fine” - my answer is:

They are “Fine”? Ask them. Plus no military compares with the US military. You want our military as “great” as what the British is now? Or as great as the Netherland’s military?

Bullshit. We already have gays in the military,and none of that has happened.

Seriously, the fact that we don't allow people to be openly gay in the military is a huge stain on our human rights record.

Right, because Basic Training doesn't emphasize unit cohesiveness and how not to treat your comrades like shit.

1/30/2010 10:04:50 AM

What you mean armies that have better equipment (the SA80 is the most accurate service rifle there is, and the challenger 2 is secnd only t te leopard 3), or better training, the uk has one of the worlds best levels of training and certainly higher than the US, or a lower rate of friendly fire (in the 1st gulf war more British soldiers were killed by the US than the Iraqis)? Oh i see you mean compared to armies that maintain a higher level of overall effiencey for a far smaller military budget.

1/30/2010 10:16:04 AM


Remind me, how many armies in the world suffer from a 'friendly fire' problem?

If you can't even figure out who your enemy is, you can't brag that you're the best at fighting.

The British Army may be underfunded and ruled by health and safety bureaucrats more concerned with what comes out of the exhaust of a tank than what comes out the barrel but at least they know better than to kick themselves in the crotch.

They've managed to defeat the Spartans in on occasion.

And the army was made up of men couples.

1/30/2010 10:18:55 AM


So us British have a shit army now do we? What about the SAS? or the British Marines? Some of the best of the best there. If the British ever get caught in a hostage situation you can bet we'll send the SAS in and have them out in a jiffy.

You do realize that medics are required to use rubber gloves just like everyone else in medicine to help prevent the spread of all blood and fluid-borne diseases, right? And that straight people can carry said diseases, right?

Listen, I have participated in a maneuver with both the US Marines and the Dutch Royal Marines. I'd rather fight a company of US Marines than a platoon of DRM any day. Trust me - those guys mean business!

Which military force has the greatest record of killing friendly forces with "friendly fire"?

Which military shoots first and asks questions later despite allied military forces telling them repeatedly to hold back and do some more recon?


1/30/2010 10:33:32 AM


Aw, that's cute. He actually thinks that there are no homosexuals in the military right now. How quaint.

Why is it that those who have never served always know what's best for the military? little jerediarrhea should immediately enlist, to better show veterans like me how we had it all wrong.

I think the main problem with the U.S. military these days is that it is overrun with fundamentalist Christians.

Dear speccy4i, AverageAtheist and others.

You have to remember that in the feeble American mind, Americans are exceptional and in a positive way and the rest of the world is shit, so what can you really expect?

USA is a country that spends more money on their military than the rest of the world combined, but Americans are still scared shitless and are terrified at the idea of trying the 9/11 people in New York. It's un-fucking-believable.

You have to understand that in an American mind, if any statistics is showing USA as not #1 it is only because the statistic is wrong, compiled by commies or Europeans (The same in their mind) or muslims or some other USA hater because every American KNOW that USA is #1 no matter what.

This crazy notion is becoming more of a problem for the world than Islamic terrorists!

1/30/2010 10:59:37 AM

Plus no military compares with the US military:

In terms of rate of friendly fire and deaths of civillians.

Maybe you should tell that to the 'gay-friendly' SAS which trains your all-powerful military?

1/30/2010 10:59:42 AM


The British military is quite a bit more hardcore than you think. Just ask anyone who went to the Royal Marines. Or the Special Air Service. Or anyone who went to Sandhurst. And don't think that the Dutch can't kick your ass. They will. All the united states military has is numbers and technology. The only bits of US military i like are the Rangers, Airborne and the Marines.

Gotta love how he lumps rape and homosexuals hitting on heterosexuals into one category.

1/30/2010 11:03:30 AM


On top of everything else you Americans have to understand WHY you have a 'superior' military.

You spend more money on the war machine than any ten countries put together. Britain and France make a lot of money with you buying their war technology, ever hear of Loughheed and Harrier? And that mk-47, that's a fine copy of a Russian gun y'got there soldier.

No ones into war as much as America

1/30/2010 11:40:57 AM

I have to disagree that "none of that has happened yet" SaneChick, because there has indeed been violence against people in the military by other people in the same military, because of perceived sexual orientation.

1/30/2010 11:49:13 AM


You dont know about the British SAS do you? Most special forces in the world are modeled after them and trained by the SAS or SAS vets. Much of the combat training the world uses comes from the SAS, including the basis of Krav Maga(the only martial art you need).

From one american to another, if you dont know what the fuck your talking about, either do some research or shut the fuck up.

1/30/2010 11:53:34 AM


1.- Again the stupid fallacy of GAYS = AIDS

2.- Word salad FTW

3.- That already happens thanks to bigoted assholes like you.

4.- Th favoritism? What the hell does that mean?

5.- Want a sleigh for your slippery slope? And being homosexual has nothing to do of how well a soldier works.

1/30/2010 12:00:44 PM



Pretty much every person in the world, at least in developed countries, thinks their country is great. Also, making massive generalizations about how stupid americans are just makes you look like an ignorant, arrogant asshole. Im not saying you are one, but right now you sure look like one.

You already have gays in your military. It's just that people like you keeps them from being open about it.

1/30/2010 12:08:27 PM


Yes, I'd hate to think that homosexual rape might get in the way of all the heterosexual rape commited by soldiers in the field and off-base.
