If they were gay military leaders in a military setting, I would feel the same way and I would also wonder why the article/picture would mention they were gay.

UnDave - :rotfl: It should be more about the fact that the US is handing over the camp, a very good thing, than two guys holding hands. Here's a question: Would those of you thinking it's an April Fool's Day joke feel the same if it were a picture of two gay men holding hands?

I am pretty sure in Iraq, it is not the usual culture for 2 military leaders to hold hands. And I came back to this after I noticed it was April 1st...but I guess they're serious.

IDK - I think the fact that they're holding hands is kind of cool. I'm just thinking of all the positive things that holding hands signifies.
