General Pace Now Considered A Victim Of That Damn Homosexual Agenda

When I first heard that General Peter Pace was retiring, I wondered how long it would take for the homosexual community to be blamed. It turns out I didn't have to wait long, because One News Now is reporting that a military watchdog group has done just that. You may remember that Gen. Pace made some comments calling homosexuality immoral, and made it clear that homosexuals shouldn't serve in the military, or, as Elaine Donnelly of the Center for Military Readiness put it...

"General Pace made statements that were opposed by the homosexual activist
community, and that issue is why the administration chose not to fight for his
reconfirmation," says Donnelly. "The administration chose to switch rather than
fight -- and in this case, I think that is mistaken."

Ms. Donnelly couldn't be more wrong. Sure, the homosexual community was incensed over Gen. Pace's statements (I posted on them earlier), but let's consider the far more probable reasons for his replacement. First, while he's only been the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs for two years, he was the deputy chief for three years preceding his appointment. This means that he has been involved at the highest level with the failed strategies employed in Iraq. Second, Robert Gates, Rumsfeld's replacement as Defense Secretary, made it known early on that Pace wasn't someone he wished to work with. Further, it's just not that unusual for a newly appointed cabinet member to want to make personnel changes.

The first reason is probably why the White House decided it didn't want to fight the upcoming reconfirmation hearings in the Senate. Since the Democrats are in control, Pace's policies and strategies regarding Iraq would most definitely make his confirmation difficult, if not impossible. That's the fight the White House wanted to avoid, because it would shine a gigantic spotlight on Bush and his underlying agenda.

The fundies are using Pace's outrageous comments as a red herring and choosing this moment to divert attention from the Chimperor's agenda. They'd much rather blather about the fictitious homosexual agenda and all the evil that it entails then face the fact that their anointed son, Bush, has royally screwed up. Ms. Donnelly can continue to point the finger at the homosexual community, but anyone with a functioning brain and the capacity for logical thought should be able to see what is really going on with this new appointment.
