What's up with this?
The economic downturn, combined with a dramatic decrease in violence in Iraq, is making it far easier for the military to meet its recruiting goals. As hundreds of thousands of jobs are lost in the national economy, many job-seekers are turning to the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. Every branch has met or exceeded its recruiting goals for the year.
News flash: Each and every branch of the United States military has exceeded its recruiting goals since the war began in 2001. Long before the economic downturn. So quit the crocodile tears.
"As hundreds of thousands of jobs are lost in the national economy, many job-seekers are turning to the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines"? Where have you guys been?
Since 9/11 hundreds of thousands of brave American men and women have not only turned to the military for career opportunities, they've served - proudly and honorably - in defense of the United States of America.
Put down the dope, fellas. There's news unfolding out there.
