HOW? WHY?

President Bush will seek an overall increase in the size of the military.

How?

The Army routinely misses recruitment goals and has increased their marketing campaign in an effort to compensate. (Think: "Army of One" to "Army Strong.")

There is a logistical disconnect here. Less than a 1/4th of the U.S. population supports of the war, with that number significantly lower in younger demographics.

The increase will be voluntary? ... right?

It's like a runner tearing his hamstring then sprinting in pursuit.

Yet, the coach: "the military industrial complex" doesn't ask the severity of the injury , just how soon they will be full strength while sprinting.

For them, it's only when.

For "the military industrial complex," that question is coupled with: When will the additional $100 billion in Iraq funding be approved by Congress?

It's when. Not why or how? Logistics, morals and justification are conveniently ignored.

More ... more ... more ...
