Actually, the higher numbers simply reflect the fact that more minorities and poor people have no other skills or choices, so they have to go into the military. They don't want to be there, but their desperation to get a job, any job, is coming out more clearly every day. When the armed forces greatly exceed their goals, it is not a case of the military being desirable. It is simply the desperation of unqualified, ill-educated minorities. (/democrat, /arrogance).
I believe that the numbers of minorities, particularly blacks, enlisting have fallen way off in recent months.
LOL, you had me going there for a second.
You nailed it!
Too few recruits = bad war (Bush’s fault)
Too many recruits = bad economy (Bush’s fault)
