Ending "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"

This would be awesome:
The very simple solution to Don't Ask, Don't Tell is this: On April 1st, every GLB Serviceperson stands up and tells their superior, "I'm gay and I want to serve my country." Either the military loses tens of thousands of qualified soldiers and is forced to draw down in Iraq, or they eliminate this stupid rule. Bush would have to choose between his beloved base and the War on Terror. Interesting to watch, eh?
There are no good reasons for this policy. Both Israel and the UK allow gays to openly serve, and it doesn't seem to have destroyed the military capacity of those nations. It's past time we rid ourselves of this legacy of homophobia.
