Is US military so desperate for soldiers?
|Quoting Bofredrik (Reply 7):|
"As has been discussed here before, the background profile of military personel in Iraq is actually higher than that of the general population. I.E. Their are more kids who volunteer coming from middle or upper class families than from the poor, relative to the population."
I would appreciate a ref to that. Tks!
Then search the site.
Here's a newsflash for you, all the folks claiming - CLAIMING - the majority o the deaths in Iraq have been Minority, Lower Class soldiers are Wrong, dead ass frackin' wrong.
In fact, they've been WHITE, middle class.
A simple Google Search will provide the appropriate results.
Only the ignorant racists on this site continue to believe the "US military picks on the poor inner-city underclass NON-White population".

The problem is you are bringing up an issue that has been discussed to death in this forum.
Yup, over and over and over.
What a crock of crap . . . just what kind of "war" are your precious young soldiers eligible to fight???? What a lod of garbage.
"Ohhh, wait, wrong kind of war for our younger soldiers!!! Holy somokes, we can't send them there, they may get KILLED!" Are you for real????

Of course, you could stick around and take the thrashing like a man, afterall, you started it. Better than cutting and running ain't it.

Luckily this is no longer a problem in the San Francisco schools. We passed a law that forbids aggressive military recruitment.
We aren't discouraging military service, just the aggressive and sometimes hostile recruitment by some of the recruiters.
Which is ONE reason, of many, I wish that place would slide off into the Pacific . . . . what a worthless bunch of morons . . . and I'll add this caveat . . . anyone that concurs with their warped thinking is equally worthless.
You want the benefits, but refuse to pay the price.
Absolutely, unimaginably SHAMEFUL. Absolutely shameful. Useless people.

What I'm saying is that the military IS reflective of society at large.
At all levels?
Yes, Larry. At all levels. I have served with sons of millionaires, I have served with sons of paupers. ALL
