"The Army, which is bearing the brunt of the work in Iraq, did the best. It signed up 6,485 new recruits in November compared with its target of 6,150 meaning 105 percent of its goal. " Was written.
Think about this.
If the Army exceeds it's recruiting goals month after month, quarter after quarter, it barely makes any news. If they marginally fail in making their goal for one quarter, two years ago, some within our political establishment and the MSM "STILL" quote this as an example of an Army that is imploding, loss of support for the war by the troops, bla bla bla.

(Weird thoughts -)
Just like any officer who wants to slam the President or the War can make the morning talk show circuit, land a book contract, go on a university speaking tour... Do you ever hear from a former General that does support the war?
