Based on Obama's military standing, I would say that this is an accurate representation of his positions.
 
BTW, apparently these idiots do not know that there are millions of radical Arabs, who kill homosexuals on sight, in and around Israel.
 
This will be viewed as a direct insult to them and will represent the debauchery of the West. This will validate to the terrorists that their fight is in fact correct.
 
This will serve only to move this location up to the top on the list of locations to attack, and meanwhile, it accomplishes nothing good.
 
America is the most 'stupid' and adamantly 'politically correct' country on the planet. And their moronic behavior is getting people killed all over the globe.

Radical Arabs don't need a flag to kill homosexuals, if they're going to kill them.  Besides, who the hell cares what they think?

Of all the things to get bunched-up panties over, this is at the bottom of the list.

Once again, you are being an idiot. You cannot comprehend how this is viewed in the M.E.  Flying a gay flag under 'old glory', is an insult to everyone.
 
But more than that, it is just stupid. Why? What does it do, other than piss everyone off, and disgrace the flag. What if they flew the IBM flag below old glory, what would that represent. Obviously, it represents an affiliation.
 
As far as "bunched-up panties" goes, where does my post fall on your bunched-up panties list? It can't be at the bottom.

Under flag etiquette, this sort of arrangement of the flags (the pride flag underneath the U.S. flag on the same staff) would indicate that the homosexual lobby is subservient to the U.S. government; political prisoners, if you will.

I don't think that's what they meant.

Sort of. I think you may be technically correct. But that is not how it was done when I was in. For example, when we were doing Ops with the Australians, we flew the flag with the Austrailian flag underneath. It was only meant to indicate that we were a joint force and nothing more than that.
 
I am sure this is what was meant by flying the homo flag. But my God, could you pick a worst place to do that than the M.E.?
 
France, Britain, who cares? But doing this in the M.E. has more consequences for everyone.

Thanks for the ad hominem, jerkweed.

Who cares how this is viewed by radical Muslims? Is this just the thing that's going to push a radical Muslim over the edge, to attack an American embassy?   A flag?  Really?

As for an IBM flag, I worked for IBM for 25 years and would love it.

Your post doesn't go on the "bunched-up panties" list.  It goes on the "the only reaction to a rainbow flag will be right here on GBR" list.

You have no idea what you are talking about. You have never lived in the M.E. nor have you ever been in the military. You are talking out of your ass, whereas I am speaking from first person experience. You have no idea. You are clueless about how the M.E. works. Maybe you go for a visit. I am sure they would love you and your incredibly naive point of view.
 
You know, I used to think you had some value. But, now I see that you are just one of a million run of the mill A-holes.
 
By the way, how did that Cantor race turn out, jerkweed? I haven't been keeping up. Who won? LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

So, you double down on the ad hominems. 

I'm willing to put down a wager.  I'll bet you $1000 that there is no major reaction (i.e., attack) due to the raising of the rainbow flag over the US embassy in Tel Aviv.

As for run-of-the-mill aholes, if you aren't willing to put your money where your big fat mouth is, then you're on the "I'm a big bleep" list.

As for the Cantor race, I live in Texas.  I don't get to vote in Virginia.

Come on man, we're just having fun. I do not understand why you are obsessing on the 'attack' part of my statement. I only said that the flag would symbolize to them that America is all they already think it is.
 
There is no reason to provoke or tease them. And that is what this idiocy does. Muslims attack over a cartoon. It does not take much to get them going. That was my point, not they would attack. That was a side note, an offhand remark, not the crux or point of what I was saying.
 
I've have lived with Muslims and speak a little Arabic. I know how they think and they will consider this to be a validation of what they think of America, and they will be insulted to have it flown in their part of the the world.
 
Homosexuals in Muslims territories must be horrified by this, because it puts them in more danger than they already are by bring the issue to the front of everyone's attention. And it may very well be used to goad attacks on Israel and Israelies.
 
But nevermind. You are right, it is not all that important. I'm bored with this topic now. Good discussion.
Thank you for the interaction.

Strange way you have "fun."  Insults and demeaning language.

Thanks for proving my point.  Good night.
