    I really dont have much faith in Obama in regards to military treatment. With Hillary as his SoS I keep thinking Bomb, bomb, bomb, Iran.

    "Army of One" wasn't nearly as stupid as what they used to have. "We do more before noon than most people do all day." Yeah, we get up early. Good recruiting point there guys
    Are you serious? Do they really have their own ad department?

    God that's retarded...I mean our current army outsources everything- do they really not outsource one of the few things that is a pretty legitimate thing to contract?
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    Tighten the reins...? The required GPA was already at 3.2, for enlistment concideration, with no criminal record. I`ll bet you`re one of those who looks down their nose at active duty personel ,and vets..., not dog doctors bozo, veterans. Our military is heads above anything on the planet. I noticed you didn`t serve, couldn`t measure up ?

    Public Affairs I believe it's called.

    They probably do, I'm just taking this guy's word for it. You could be right though, they probably outsource a lot of it. Probably be smart to.

    Economicly enslaved societies of the past used this same tactic. The government has just put a little different twist on it in this case. They got rid of all the private sector jobs first by outsourceing. The conspiracy theorist in me is figuring out Big Brothers script by back tracking. This all does feel scripted. Pardon my doubts in the feds.

    Personally I don't look up to those who serve in the military unless they're fighting for a proper war of national defence like WWII. They're no better than anyone else and I have an ancient Tory suspicion of standing armies.

    As Robert Nisbet pointed out so well, and many others before and since, the values and effects on militarisation and war on society can be very perverse from a Conservative, Libertarian and Decentralist position. In Britain I want a far tighter rein kept on the military. "War is the Health of the state" as Randolph Bourne pointed out.
