Bad news for military service.
In peacetime, recruiters can be real picky-choosy about whom them select.
In wartime, they'll take anyone who can breathe.

Facing low recruitment levels during Operation Iraqi Freedom, the U.S. Army
quietly lifted its ban on allowing people with a history of mental illness,
self-mutilation and drug abuse to serve in the military -- despite warnings
from the industry about the risks involved.

In 2010 a mentally-ill registered Democrat named Jared Lee Loughner shot
Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and killed 6 others. What's been forgotten is the
fact that he was rejected for military service because he answered "yes"
when a recruiter asked him if he ever smoked pot. Just think, had he simply
lied, they'd have stuffed him into uniform and packed his ass off to Iraq.

In the first ninety pages, the author is obsessed with skinheads and

Through Vietnam, America’s wars were fought by tough kids, often from rural
backgrounds involving familiarity with guns and with hard physical work.
Today America has a military corrupted by social-justice politics. Recruits
are no longer country boys who could chop cordwood. Obesity is a given. The
Pentagon has lowered physical standards, hidden racial problems, and
softened training. The officers are afraid of the large numbers of military
women who are now in combat positions. One complaint about sexism and there
goes the career.

BTW, Britain's military now prefers new recruits as opposed to re-enlistees:

Iraq resumes S-300 negotiations with Russia

Muhammad Reza, President of the Iraqi Parliament's Security and
Defense Commission, said Baghdad has resumed negotiations with Moscow
on the purchase of S-300 missile systems. ..

Riza noted that this issue should be solved a long time ago. "A few
months ago, after the attacks on the bases of the Shiite militia,
Hashdi Shabi in Baghdad and other regions, these weapons were needed
and the responsible party resumed negotiations on the S-300 contract"
he said. Riza said that she did not know which stage the process is
currently in, but that the Iraqi administration has approved the
agreement. "We expect the US to oppose this issue" ..

"According to the accurate reports of our sources in this area, at
least 80 American troops were killed and some 200 others were wounded,
who were immediately transferred out of the airbase by helicopters,"
the source was quoted as saying, apparently to explain the lack of any
images of bodies despite the purportedly high death toll.

The source said up to 20 "critical points" on the base were struck by
15 missiles, destroying "a significant number" of US drones and
helicopters. ..

America's decline continues

Despite its claims of making America more respected and feared
in the world, the Trump Administration's behaviours have only
contributed to accelerating the decline in America's leadership.
President Donald Trump's demonstrated disdain for international
agreements and law, his erratic behaviour and his reckless
tweets, have left world leaders and their publics alternating
between being confounded and frightened. ..

America became ground down in a long costly war that took a
terrible toll not only in lives and treasure, but in America's
standing in the world. As the war dragged on, it became clear
that not only was America weaker and less respected, but other
regional and international players began to assert themselves.
As a result of this foolish war, the very multipolarity the
neoconservatives sought to forestall became a reality.

Globally, Russia and China expanded their roles and, in the
Middle East, Turkey and Iran sought increased influence, as did
Saudi Arabia and its Gulf Cooperation Council partners. ..

.. In just three decades, the US has gone from being the
undisputed superpower to a mere competitor with other global and
regional powers. Far from restoring America's leadership role,
the Trump Administration's failure to deliver on its promises,
its lack of coherency and its penchant for one-off dangerous
acts, have made it feared, but not trusted as a reliable partner.
And so other nations, have either turned elsewhere for
partnerships or been forced to rely on their own resources. The
decline of America's role continues ..

Danish soldier after Iranian attack: I felt powerless

Suddenly the first layer comes, as I call it. Nine rockets a
barely a ton each. It cannot be described. I've never experienced
anything like it and I hope to never come to it again ..

The attack was so severe that the bunker shook, and dust

uncertainty and powerlessness that were the worst .. We could

F-35 can't shoot straight among many other flaws ..

The costliest U.S. weapon system - the F-35 jets by Lockheed
Martin - has according to the Pentagon's annual testing report
more than 870 software issues - with one of the gravest being
that the jet seemingly can't shoot straight .. The accuracy of
the 25mm gun models is "unacceptable," ..

.. Modern Air Defense complexes, such as S-400, even in their
export version, can detect, track and shoot down all those
VLO (Very Low Observability) targets such as F-35. ..

The Pentagon smart psyopers first said no casualties,
then they said 34 injured. Now they say 50 have become
brain deficient due to the Iran's attack. So how much
time it will take to them to recognize the true scale
of the casualties?
