Can't We Work this Out?

In an ideal world, there would be a way for the people filing this lawsuit to serve in the military and the people filing this lawsuit could go home. But this is Bushworld, which is far from ideal.

Seriously, this reminds me of the situation in Major League Baseball during WWII. While a one armed player, Pete Gray, was in the majors, great players like Josh Gibson and Satchel Paige were stuck in the Negro Leagues. We have the same situation in the military today, where we're sending one legged soldiers back to Iraq and soldiers who thought their commitments were long over are being recalled. Meanwhile, there are untold thousands of able-bodied, patriotic Americans who would be proud to serve their country, except they're homosexual.

I think there's going to be a draft, but if there's not, the Iraq war may be what it takes to allow homosexuals to freely serve, just out of necessity.
