    Pentagon: 71% of Americans Are too Dumb, Fat, or Criminal for Military Service

    According to the Pentagon’s own numbers, a staggering 71 percent of young Americans are ineligible to join the armed forces, when you subtract out the too-dumb, the too-fat, and the too-criminal. In practical terms, this means that 24 million of the 34 million Americans in the 17-to-24-year-old cohort, the Pentagon’s main recruiting demographic, cannot enlist. At present, there are grave doubts whether the U.S. military can get enough even marginally qualified recruits to maintain current force levels, despite lucrative incentives for recruits on the right-side of the notorious IQ Bell Curve.


    As one analyst recently summed up the Pentagon’s crisis acidly, “The problem, it seems, isn’t that young people don’t want to join the Army—or any of the services—it’s that they can’t. And therein lies a paradox: for while the U.S. military represents the best in America (as its most senior officers claim), it doesn’t actually represent America. For that to be true, two thirds of our military would have to consist of obese, under-educated former drug users and convicted criminals.”

    Just like Spengler wrote it. A historical moment like this was predictable.

    Well that's good news for the young people concerned as presumably they would never need to worry about the prospect of being conscripted or having to avoid it like many of their presidents have done.

    If the US Army is so concerned about manpower levels they should follow the example of the British Army and recruit women, homosexuals, former drug users, petty criminals and men that cry. It is inevitable that standards will have to be lowered as you cannot do a great deal to change the demographic. Another suggestion could be to copy the Bundeswehr and consider recruiting foreigners or dare I say it even offering jobs to illegal immigrants. Lateral thinking is needed in situations like this.

    Wars are being increasingly 'fought' from armchairs by drone 'pilots'. You don't really need to be physically fit to do those jobs. My last suggestion would be to keep using those mercenaries, euphemistically called 'contractors' such as Blackwater, now called Academi. They hoped that a quick name change may help to rescue their tarnished reputation.

    They already accept everything you mentioned above and they have lowered their standards and the outcome is predictable. One such example I know of was a large overweight "veteran" that was in the US Air force as a bulldozer operator, he never seen second of live combat in Afghanistan yet was able to claim PTSD syndrome because he went to Afghanistan. He is now on full disability pay for life.

    As the US went to this "new" fighting force, they save all the rural white men for frontline combat. These young country boys are the real fighters while the queers, racial others and fat asses are kept doing non-combat roles. Funny even though these young white country boys are the ones getting shot at, they don't claim PTSD.
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    Very sobering video. It explains how sending low I.Q. individuals into a war zone is truly criminal, heartless and useless.

    LOL. USA should take my kind of young immigrants .... even as I'm 164cm ... I passed Finland's army's military obstacle course. My time was not good and I said some of swearwords ... well nobody is perfect. Men said that it was great ... but those army officers are often very polite.

    Or maybe not ... being too beastly.

    Ill bet there is more to this than meets the eye. Anyone divesting from society would not serve well in the military. Like the Amish for instance they would be useless in an empire.
    Although the word "Commando" was wrongly used to describe all Boer soldiers, a commando was a unit formed from a particular district. None of the units was organized in regular companies, battalions or squadrons. The Boer commandos were individualists who were difficult to control, resented formal discipline or orders, and earned a British jibe that"every Boer was his own general".

    Indeed and we need to emulate the Amish. I do not share their religious beliefs but I admire them none the less.
