I'm in college right now, and I will be joining the marines after I get out because I believe in America and our leadership. Yeah they screw up sometimes, but who wouldn't? I wholeheartedly agree with the war in Iraq. Whether going to Iraq was for oil, to spread democracy, look for weapons of mass destruction, or whatever reason you think it may be; the fact remains that far more good than bad has come of it. People in Iraq are now no longer afraid to talk on the phone with a friend or have to watch what they say when having lunch. Saddam was crazy... that's all there is to it. Yes, during the war people were probably freaked out and many people died... but the quality of life of Iraqi's is going to be MUCH butter in the long run. And that's all that matters.

Alternatively being convicted of a crime and being offered the chance to serve in the army instead of prison must be an incentive...
I dont rate any army that recruits criminals.
