Srebrenica Massacre: "Gays In The Military To Blame"

With the capture of Ratko Mladic yesterday, I hope people don't forget the real reason the massacre at Srebrenica happened - Teh Gays In Teh Military!!!
General John Sheehan helpfully explained this at a US Senate hearing last March when he argued against lifting the ban on allowing lesbians and gay men to serve openly in the US military.

"The European militaries today are a product of the collapse of the Soviet Union - nations like Belgium, Luxembourg, the Dutch etc. They firmly believed there was no longer a need for an active combat capability in their militaries.
"As a result they declared a peace dividend and made a conscious effort to socialise their miltary. That included the unionisation of their militaries, it included open homosexuality, demonstrated in a series of activities with a focus on peacekeeping operations, because they did not believe the Germans were going to attack again or the Soviets were coming back.
"That led to a force that was ill-equipped to go to war.
"The case in point that I'm referring to is when the Dutch were required to defend Srebrenica against the Serbs.
"The battalion was understrength, poorly led, and the Serbs came into town, handcuffed the soldiers to the telephone poles, marched the Muslims off and executed them.
"That was the largest massacre in Europe since World War Two."
The chair asks Sheehan; "Did the Dutch leaders tell you it was because there were gay soldiers there?"
"Yes. They included that as part of the problem."

Thanks for clearing that up, John.
I wonder if the defence will bring this up at the Hague?
