Here are the facts:
1. "Twenty-five nations allow gays and lesbians to serve openly (in the military). None has reported any overall detriment to cohesion, morale, recruiting or retention" of their militaries. Palm Center Report
2. Studies have been done since 1957 to the present, some studies done by the military's own experts and they report no problem with gay people serving in the military and no need for segregated changing or bathing facilities. Palm Center Report
3. In July 1995, more than 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys were murdered by the Army of Republika Srpska (VRS)(15,000 Serbians) under the command of General Ratko Mladić during the Bosnian War. In 1993 the United Nations had declared Srebrenica a "safe area" under UN protection but its Protection Force (UNPROFOR), represented on the ground by a 350-400-strong contingent of armed Dutch peacekeepers, failed to prevent the massacre.
4. In 1996, the Dutch government commissioned a report to figure out what happened. The report concluded that "the Dutchbat mission was not well considered and well-nigh impossible." Jan van Benthem, executive producer of "2 Vandaag," a current affairs TV program in Holland, has continuously followed investigations on the role of the Dutch peacekeepers. He said, "It is clear that our lightly-armed soldiers were unable to guarantee the Muslims' safety in Srebrenica. Their mandate was only to observe. They were peacekeeping troops, not peace-enforcing troops and simply didn't have the arms to protect the Muslims of Srebrenica," he says, adding, "However, after their requests for military support were refused by the UN, our soldiers should have left, just to avoid further responsibility and involvement in the massacre."
So by all accounts, we have between 350-400 lightly armed Dutch UN Peace Keeping troops facing the well fortified Serbian Army of 15,000 troops. They were vastly outnumbered and outgunned. They called for military help from the U.N. and were denied any assistance. This is why they were overrun and captured and the Serbians were able to kill the Bosnian Muslims. This is basically the conclusion everyone has held until now.
