It Seems The Recruiting Issue... back in the forefront. The DOD is going to call up more National Guard troops to fight in Irag and Afghanistan. That's what they're there for, but it does cause some concern. If we have a natural, or unnatural terrorist related, disaster here that causes grave hardship to the populace, it could be devestating. They say the Army can't train soldiers to be combat ready fast enough, which I agree with, since you don't want them going into harms way ill prepared. But it brings me pause when I think of all the overcrowding in the prisons. I have no idea how many people are on death row here in the US of fucked up States, but some is better than done. If they survive, they're free. What? It worked in a movie. Got a better idea? The way we're headed ain't gonna work. And conscription will never happen with the rightie-tighties around. Just saying...
