Marines too weak for Gays? (political cartoon)

I have never understood the whole right wing idea that Gays in the military are bad. Our military is rumored to be the toughest and most professional on Earth - able to run into the teeth of battle without batting an eyeball.

Scared of nothing.

So you are telling me this fierce bunch of people who have been fighting Al Qaeda, the Mahdi Army and who knows what all, for almost six years now can’t handle Gays?

Somehow Gays are more of threat to democracy and freedom than Bin Laden? This is one thing the Marines can’t overcome? A beach they can’t take?

Horseshit. Marines can handle anything and so can the other branches of our military.

Love this!

Yeah...I remember the old "women wouldn't be tough enough, people couldn't handle women dying in combat, males on the front lines would spend too much time protecting the women, women would distract men".....all that was bull sheet too.

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

Ayup

as it turns out....we mourn men and women equally. We're also finding that people don't just die on the front line. Everywhere seems to be the front these days.

My heart goes out to all loved ones in the military

Support the Troops! Bring them home now!

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.
