For those that don’t know it, certain felons are now able to sign up for the US military. Think about that for a moment…. They don’t enlist (or commission) 40 year old men. These are kids that committed significant crimes just a short while ago, not middle-aged people that learned their lessons and have turned their lives around. And we’re training them how to more efficiently and reliably kill people, along with tactics to include getting in locked and barred doors, blowing stuff up, etc.
Yet we’re kicking qualified people OUT now, with the troop reductions.
Yep! Makes just a ton of sense. I’ve just got to keep reminding myself that we’re behind so many other countries with our infrastructure, corruption, inflation, crime, etc. (But I suspect we’re closing fast.)
