Retired General Disgraces Uniform

Sheehan_JohnJ_USMCI try to keep LemonWade focussed on entertainment, but sometimes a news item is so outrageous that I have to comment. Such a one is the statement yesterday before Congress of former U.S. general John Sheehan (pictured) about gays in the military. Sheen told the Congresspeople that the presence of gay soldiers among Dutch U.N. peacekeepers was a factor in causing the 1995 Srebrenica massacre in Bosnia. I don’t need to emphasize how disgusting and outrageous this claim was: the Dutch government has done it for me. The Dutch Defense Ministry said General Sheehan’s claims were “absolute nonsense” and added that gay Dutch soldiers routinely cooperate with the US military in the NATO mission in Afghanistan.
