U.S. President-elect Barack "Change" Obama says he's going to delay changing the U.S. military's "Don't ask, don't tell" policy, which prohibits non-heterosexuals from devulding their sexual oriention to fellow military personnel. Those that do or who are found out to be gay are subject to being discharged from the military, although with "honorable" status if they have a clean service record. (The U.S. military has always had an unspoken exception of not discharing known homosexual intelligence officers and special ops that are certain not to be subject to blackmail because of their sexual orientation).
The U.S. and Turkey are the only NATO members that as of this date prohibit homosexuals from serving openly in their militaries even though a prerequisite for serving in any militia or military is courage and bravery. In the more valient militaries, any heterosexual that is too cowardly to serve along side known non-heterosexuals in the military just because of their sexual orientation is emotionally unfit for military service. Perhaps Germany and Japan could have won WWII had they thought of attacking the white regiments of the racially segregated American army and Marine Corps with black and homosexual human "bombs", which the straight white boys were supposedly too sissy to fight alongside as fellow soldiers. That would have sent them swishing into retreat like frightened little girls.
Even the predecessor to the U.S. Border Patrol, the U.S. Cavalry, wasn't too cowardly to include black "Buffalo Soliders" in their non-racially-segregated militaristic campaigns against "containing" Indigenous Americans as does the contemporary Border Patrol in controlling the ancient, natural practice of free northbound migration on the part of Mesoamerican Indian-blooded people from south of the artificial border as mandated by Republican and Democrat immigration policy.
The emotional sissies that uphold "Don't ask, don't tell" have the same mentality as those that support laws against "unsightly" conditions such as private junk yards and unkept lawns in their neighborhoods. For them the Eleventh Commandment is, "Thou shalt not offend the (weak) emotions of thy neighbor".
And they think us non-colonized and non-Christianized injuns are backward in our ways and thinking. At least we never invented superstitions and "sins" about "two spirit" (other-than-heterosexual) people like their ancient Middle Eastern spiritual role models did.
