Don't Ask... Until the Wars Are Over

Don't Ask... Until the Wars Are Over

by

Perhaps we should listen
to the likes of US Marine Corps Commandant James Amos when they say we should
not labor the confusing and tumultous process of weening our armed
forces from their homophobia while still in the midst of endless combat
in Central Asia and the Middle East.  Let's end the wars and our foreign occupations,
bring all the troops home, and begin dismantling the US empire.  Soon
after, we can educate them about tolerance, sexual identities, and how
wonderful it will be when gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, and
questioning troops can all pick up arms for the next "Global War on
Terror." 

THE LAST FIREWALL AGAINST THE LIES

Independent media has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies.   Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook.  Never before has independent media been more endangered.  If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
