Of Gay Soldiers and Srebrenica

Where do you go with this?

Gays in the military ‘led to Srebrenica massacre’ claims U.S. General

Gay soldiers were to blame for Dutch troops being overrun during the Srebrenica massacre, a retired general has claimed.

John Sheehan said allowing homosexuals to serve had led to a collapse in morale.

The massacre in the Bosnian war was one of the worst in Europe since the Second World War.

Some 8,000 Muslims were killed after Bosnian Serb forces overwhelmed the Dutch in a UN ‘safe area’ in 1995.

Mr Sheehan, a former U.S. and Nato general, blamed European nations’ efforts to ‘socialise’ their forces by, among other things, letting gay people join.

Mr Sheehan was speaking in opposition to a proposal to allow gay people to serve openly in the U.S. military. [Source]

One can only conclude that such bull-headed masters of prejudice have even less of a right to represent their country than the men and women who served.
