Gates: I’m looking at ways to ensure gays are not kicked out of military based on personal vendettas.
Bilbo Hussein Baggins says:
I'm sorry, but I don't understand how Gates and others in the military can make it so complicated.
Among the 19 NATO member countries, Greece, Hungary, Poland, Portugal, Turkey and the United States are the only six that do not allow gays, lesbians and bisexuals to serve openly. Foreign militaries that have lifted their bans include: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
So, Mr. Gates, why is it so complicated in the USA. Is it because we are a more homophobic nation than all the others or is it because people like you are making it complicated when it is in fact very simple. JUST STOP KICKING GAYS OUT OF THE MILITARY.
