Military Grants More Waivers to Recruits

By LOLITA C. BALDOR
Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON -- The Army and Marine Corps are letting in more recruits with criminal records, including some with felony convictions, reflecting the increased pressure of five years of war and its mounting casualties.

According to data compiled by the Defense Department, the number of Army and Marine recruits needing waivers for felonies and serious misdemeanors, including minor drug offenses, has grown since 2003. The Army granted more than double the number of waivers for felonies and misdemeanors in 2006 than it did in 2003. Some recruits may get more than one waiver.

Scraping the bottom of the barrel, eh?

There is a kind of perverse, gritty logic overlaying all of this which goes something like: Since the terrorists are so savage and cruel, maybe this will level the playing field, so the terrorists will be finding out if they can take it as well as dish it out. Maybe a few hands and heads chopped off, skulls pierced by electric drills, will teach 'em what's what.


Maybe.

That's the lengthy, convoluted theory. Mine is far more simple; nobody in their right mind is signing up for this lunacy.

Multiply this unprofessional shower by 1666 and Dubya will have what he wants. What's a little 'friendly fire' amongst friends anyway?
