    In keeping with the tradition of great USMessageBoard posters, I will post something I did not write - without comment - except to say that a friend of mine who enlisted in the Armed Forces said that his RECRUITER used this same bogus argument to convince him Iraq was a safe place.

    I guess they figure if anyone is dumb enough to fall for it,

    anyways, the whole thing looks like gibberish to me, and I doubt any recruiter used it.

    Hmmm, upon joining the military one signs away 4 years of his life, if nto all of it. Young men do not join the military on amusing statistics.

    Also, please tell me and the USMB patrons just how the aforementioned ratio would be a pro-war argument, as you stated.
