Our delusional Preznit 

Big words:

"[BUSH AT QUANTICO] In the face of such adversaries there is only one course of action: We will continue to take the fight to the enemy, and we will fight until this enemy is defeated."

Small stick:

The Army National Guard, a cornerstone of the U.S. force in
Iraq, missed its recruiting goal for at least the ninth straight month in June and is nearly 19,000 soldiers below its authorized strength, military officials said Monday.

The Army Guard was seeking 5,032 new soldiers in June but signed up only 4,337, a 14 percent shortfall, according to statistics released Monday by the
Pentagon. It is more than 10,000 soldiers behind its year-to-date goal of almost 45,000 recruits, and has missed its recruiting target during at least 17 of the last 18 months.

"The recruiting environment remains difficult in terms of economic conditions and alternatives," the Army said in a statement released Monday.

So, "take the fight to the enemy" with what army?

As for the Army's pitifully transparent rationale that the economy's too good for people to server their country... Did it never occur to them that the volunteers they ask to fight our wars might not like being lied to? And that they might be smart enough to figure out when that was happening?
