Sign of the times

One way to get the US military to meet its recruiting targets: a 10% unemployment rate:
Of course, they're unlikely ever to admit the corollary, which is that, without 10% (or 20% depending on how you measure it) unemployment and large bonuses, they could never motivate people to "fight for their country" when they can't even give an explanation (even from their point of view) of why "we" are now fighting in Afghanistan, Iraq, and elsewhere.
Starve to death or become a bullet-stopper (but be fed until then)?
