Bottomfeeder 239 Posted August 23, 2006 Share Posted August 23, 2006 What happened to all of those recruits they said to have acquired? Heck, the draft will be coming before long. The warfare state continues to ruin lives here and abroad. WASHINGTON - The U.S. Marine Corps said Tuesday it has been authorized to recall thousands of Marines to active duty, primarily because of a shortage of volunteers for duty in Iraq and Afghanistan.Up to 2,500 Marines will be brought back at any one time, but there is no cap on the total number of Marines who may be forced back into service in the coming years as the military battles the war on terror. The call-ups will begin in the next several months. This is the first time the Marines have had to use the involuntary recall since the early days of the Iraq combat. The Army has ordered back about 14,000 soldiers since the start of the war. Linkage Unreal, I mean, Un####real. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
