WASHINGTON – President Bush made good on one of his promises to the American people. After declaring earlier this year that U.S. military presence in Iraq would be scaled back, yesterday it was announced that troop commitments would be raised to 138,000.

This new round of deployments is an involuntary recall of Marines in the Individual Ready Reserve, a group of the reserves that is made up of those who have left active duty but still have time remaining on their eight-year military obligations. This first time the Marines have used the involuntary recall since the beginning of the Iraq war.

The President has finally listened to the American people who keep demanding that our troops come home. What better way to reunite American families than to put those young American men and women on the ground in Iraq. The world finally makes sense again.

My best advice for my 17 year old son is this:

Hey, don't ever join any military war machine if you don't want to go to war and kill or be killed. You know, because it's just not worth it. If you want to be put in harms way, join the US military or the crips, whichever pays better. If you DON'T want to be put in harms way, get a candyass job at the mall or something.

Love,

Dad.

Good advice. Except for the "candy ass" part. There's nothing wrong with not joining the military. Getting a job at the mall doesn't make you a candy ass, it just means you work at the mall.

Yeah, but I don't want him to work at the mall. I'd rather him get a job at the car wash. So, I want to make it appear that a mall job is for candyasses. You now, an old advertising trick.
