The Only Solution to the Petraeus Scandal is to Ban Non-Gays from the Military: VIDEO


Jon Stewart discusses the widening David Petraeus scandal with The Daily Show's Senior Military Analyst John Oliver, who says that the only solution is to ban heterosexuals from serving in the armed forces:

Petraeus"A few symbolic firings is not going to do the trick. We have to do something about heterosexuals in the military. They've got to be banned. If we think about it, it was probably a mistake to let them in in the first place...Read the Bible. These people are incapable of monogamy..."

  2. The first great military sex scandal after ending Don't Ask Don't Tell involves a whole bunch of opposite gender oriented people. Who are mostly more impressed with themselves than they should be.

    And they thought gays in the military would be a problem . . .

  3. Although John Oliver's Bible quotation is completely bogus, he does have a point. There are any number of stories in the Old Testament of men in positions of power being undone by women. Not so much in the New Testament.

    These stories are not about the wiles of the women, although they have been used that way. They are about the lack of self-control in the men.
