Army Failing to Recruit

Never say kids don't know what's going on:
In what could be a troubling sign for the military, the active-duty Army missed its February recruiting goal by more than 27%. It was the first time in almost five years that the Army has failed to meet a monthly target.
I'll go ahead and say it - anyone enlisting right now must have a death wish or be somewhat brainwashed. We're accomplishing nothing in Iraq, we've been lied to, and the only question remaining to be answered is what the final death toll will be for our mistake. I'm glad that young people seem to understand that, and are resisting enticements such as "the largest enlistment bonuses it has ever offered: up to $20,000 to some recruits willing to sign on for four years".
