President Obama and Admiral Mike Mullen support the proposal of Secretary of Defense Robert Gates that the infamous “don’t Ask, don’t Tell” policy should end and gays and lesbians be allowed to openly serve in the military. At present gays and lesbians are allowed to die for their nation as long as they keep their mouths shut and die in silence. Army Chief of Staff George Casey expressed concern over making policy changes while there are wars going on in Iraq and Afghanistan. In his view to make changes while soldiers risk their lives is disturbing and threatening.
General Casey supposedly is commanding men and women in the US Army, but apparently, he only is concerned about some who die and doesn’t give a damn about others who die. The bottom line is that ALL who serve this country and ALL who may die are entitled to die with DIGNITY! Let’s tell the world this basic idea!
