"The quality of people willing to serve has been declining rapidly," the U.S. Army Recruiting Command’s commanding general says
Approximately 71% of the 34 million 17-to-24-year-olds in the U.S. would not qualify for military service because of reasons related to health, physical appearance and educational background, according to the Pentagon.
The ineligible typically includes those who are obese, those who lack a high school diploma or a GED, convicted felons, those taking prescription drugs for ADHD and those with certain tattoos and ear gauges, the Wall Street Journal reports, though some requirements can be waived.
Only 1% of young people are both “eligible and inclined to have conversation with” the military about possible service, according to the Defense Department.
1% huh? But let’s have a conversation about this. Society has been guided in this direction and now you have your population of malnutritioned, obese, and uneducated. None of them want anything to do with your war machine, and you’re upset?
99% qualified for peace? thats a nice way to look at it.
it's like it was predestined,
like i've known it since the distant past.
