U.S. troops deployed to Kandahar Airfield in Afghanistan this week held the first Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, Transgender Pride event to be observed in a deployed environment.
The Pentagon also held a LGBT Pride Month ceremony on Tuesday, one day before the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act, which defined marriage as between a heterosexual couple.
It's hysterical to me that gays and women are helping to kick the crap out of 'em.

According to Mr peace prize winner they all should have been out of that hell hole at least 4 years ago and celebrating whatever in their home town not in the war zone.
Those in that region are ALWAYS going to be pissed off at the US. There's a million and one ways to piss off the Arab World. Everyone cries equality and when the US shows it within its own troops, its taken like an offense.
So, you're the one bringing it up.
Also, its not just about "equality" within US troops. Its about timing.... and priorities.
Is this so important to the US that they feel the compulsion to parade it in a foreign country where they are at war?
I mean, how about resolving real issues?
This LGBT parade held by the DoD sounds like the punchline to the 12 year joke that was the US-Afghan war.
