ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Most newspapers seem happy - at least their op-ed and editorial writers do - that the provisions of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” law have been struck down. The senators who voted in favor of that repeal are happy, but you have to ask how many of them have served even one tour of duty in the U.S. armed forces? If they haven’t, why is this victory so important to them? Are we now to expect a wave of volunteers to serve in the military from this group?

The fact of the matter is that this is merely another aspect of the great American social battle, and these people are foot soldiers in that war. Their goal is to strike down many - if not all - of the foundations of the Judeo-Christian belief that made this country a great nation.

The military is incredibly resilient and will survive. The greater danger is that the left in this country may have gained the upper hand in the fight against mainstream America’s belief system.
