ok flyer first of all, the US military does not want idiots that will simply follow orders without thought, they want people who can think on their
feet. they break you down in bootcamp to build you back up the way they want you, true, but BC is also geared toward teaching you to think for
second, if you look at the recruitment numbers you will find (and you know this because i've seen you talk about it before) that they are missing
their recruitment goals because they've raised those goals since the WOT began. by pre-9/11 numbers, they are doing just fine.....but of course, the
media wont tell you that because it doesnt make as sensational a story.
as far as the desertions go, the chart shown on page one says it all IMHO. no more than usual, and certainly no where near the vietnam era. just
propaganda on the part of old al jazeera.....big flipping surprise.
P.S.....voting yes simply because i dont believe in voting no if i'm going to add to the discussion.....still think it's simply propaganda
