Godspeed Corpsman Christopher Anderson - the "doc" who never fell back
Gays in the military?

Changing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" to "Who gives a @#$%?"

Uber Pig at Enlisted Swine has a post up about comments from General Shalikashvili about ending one of the most controvertial policies of all time -  "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"...

Shali says, "I now believe that if gay men and lesbians served openly in the United States military, they would not undermine the efficacy of the armed forces."

I agree with Shali.  I don't think it will undermine much of anything.  I do have some concerns about safety issues (one reason to "Don't Tell" or avoid looking like you "Don't Tell").

I disagree with repealing the policy (just) because of the political perception that we need more soldiers (um, hello, there are already gay Soldiers, Marines, Sailors, Airmen, etc.).  My point is that, if ending the policy is the right thing to do, then, well, it's the right thing to do. 

Go see what Uber Pig has to say.  I'm pretty sure that Uncle Jimbo will agree.

What do you think?

Update:  The exchanges in the comments between Froggy and Uber Pig and then there's Chuck are absolutely hilarious.  Not for the faint of heart, but hilarious still...
