    If the folks who have their knickers in a twist over getting rid of DADT had any notion of how many qualified linguists and intelligence analysts the military has lost over that policy . . . .

    Linguists and MI folk - it takes a long time to teach up those folks and it's expensive training, to boot.  We literally can't afford to be throwing them away.

    And for those doofuses who say that "Unit cohesiveness will be adversely affected", well, that's what they said back inna day of Jim Crow.  And you know what?  The unit got over it.

    And the unit will get over this, too.

    Our promises are made in proportion to our hopes, but kept in proportion to our fears.-LaRouchefoucauld
