America's Military's Relaxed Recruiting?

5 posts in this topic

I'm going to read up on this, but I heard that recently, to reach quotas for recruiting, the US military seems to be accepting anyone. Supposedly, the number of Neo-Nazis and skinheads have increased in the military. Could any of that be related to reports of rapes and murders of civilians in Iraq? Would it be safe to bring such people back home who have now the best training in how to kill? What if they decide to follow in Timothy McVeigh's or John Allen Muhammad's paths? Is that just a normal risk, that you can't weed out all of those who have something against groups of other people or those who may just snap and go on rampages? Maybe it's happened all along and the risk is not so bad?

The Army is desperate to get anyone to sign up as recruitment is way off. This is because Bush's war mongering has taught this generation that war is a horrible terrible thing and not a just a video game. They recently took the unprecidented move and raised the enlistment age to 42.

Definitely desperate, no doubt. Raising the maximum enlistment age is just the tip of the iceberg as far as the desparation level in the search for new recruits.

Paula Zhan last night had a segment on a former white supremacist who was in the military who recruited impressionable young men to his cause. He enlisted to learn combat needed for the war to destroy the US. And we get to train these people with our money! He now is a consultant on the issue having abandoned that lifestyle, but he admits it exists. If these people who seek to bring down the country ever try, who do we blame?

Here's a CNN report from last week.

I have heard the same thing, Cadeho; they are taking almost anyone now.
