GAYS IN THE ARMY….Via OxBlog, a rare occasion when I agree with Andrew Sullivan:

More good news from Southern Iraq, where the Brits seem to be doing a fantastic job. One question: how did they manage not to collapse as a military force? After all, they allow openly gay soldiers in their units, thus undermining unit cohesion, destroying morale, wrecking troops’ privacy and making it impossible to fight. A miracle against all the odds, I suppose.

Isn’t it about time for the U.S. military to join the 21st century too?
