With Few Able and Fewer Willing, US Military Can’t Find Recruits: https://dnyuz.com/2022/07/14/with-few-able-and-fewer-willing-u-s-military-cant-find-recruits/
▲ MY COMMENT: This absolutely would NOT be the case if it were not for three big problems with today's military standards: #1 Endless Wars, who wants to die fighting in endless wars that never benefit our country and only benefit the MIC, corrupt power-hungry bureaucrats and rich tycoons? #2: Woke Agendas, no young American in their right mind wants to join the military to hear a bunch of leftist woke propaganda jammed down their throats! Young men traditionally join the military because they like guns and want to defend their nation from actual threats, and they see all those cool weapons systems and want to try them out! #3, Vaccine Mandates, and THAT is also a big issue no doubt. The US military has been forced to fire thousands of great people because they refuse to take the clot shot, which has been proven ineffective and worse, hazardous to health! Study after study has proven the best cure for covid is natural herd immunity, having a 97% survival rate!!! Soooo.... your shitty corrupt policies are driving the youth away from service!!
