That may be true, but if recruiting is just going alone great, why would they be recruiting hundreds of convicted felons?

Do the math.

Don't seem to add up.

It adds up to one thing: the war in Iraq has become so unpopular that patriotic young people are not volunteering in sufficient numbers for our military effort. Maybe that’s just the way of wars. We had a draft during WW2. This war has lasted way longer than a volunteer military can take us without the strain starting to show.
