If “don’t ask, don’t tell” is repealed (“Tough fight set for gays in military,” Page 1, Monday) I foresee the following:

c Resignation of many experienced straight servicemen and -women.

c Fast-track promotions of politically connected gays and their supporters (like Adm. Mike Mullen) to the highest ranks with no regard for competence or experience.

c Increased courts martial of straight servicemen who make jokes or create a “hostile environment” for gays. (This could include just looking warily at a gay person.)

c Gay officers taking advantage of enlisted men, who will have no legal recourse against the sexual harassment.
