From Drew M at Ace of Spades, regarding the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell:
I bet we see the worst case scenario that Gates and the Joint Chiefs warned of because this whole push has always been about personal edification for a few individuals and the political left, not military necessity.
That said, if the policy was going to be changed, this is the right way to do it. Supporters made their case to the people and Congress and they won. That's the way the system works.
Now we get to sit back and find out all the unintended consequences of this action are.
You're not going to see the worst case scenario, you're going to see something worse than that. As Drew points out, this is entirely about personal edification and not about military necessity. We do not need homosexuals in the military to make the military stronger. In fact, the introduction of open homosexuality into the military is going to require all kinds of new laws and regulations which will decrease the effectiveness of the military. But WHO GIVES A FUCK, right? Nobody who supported this shit thinks that it's going to make the military stronger. That's not what this is about at all. This is all about political correctness and turning the military into just another social project. This is about making yourself feel so much better and so much more fucking tolerant. So the end result, with all those unintended consequences, is going to be even worse.
