The US military recruiting crisis was earned by the politicians, generals, and high ranking civilians who have been running the Pentagon over the past 30 years or so. The crisis is also upon us due to newspeople not asking questions going back to the time the Cold War ended.

Here is a made for TV interview that passes up on a chance to ask serious questions. Stroking the general and promoting Hollywood releases is what we’re here for:

This country could use some newspeople who are up for asking tough questions. Love to see an interview something like this:

General Thomas,

Since 1986 Top Gun:

The US Dept. of Defense was nowhere to be found on 911.

We haven’t won a war since.

Decades after the lessons of Vietnam, it feels like the people who run the Pentagon specialize in undeclared/unwon wars. Is it understandable that young people and their parents and grandparents would take a dim view on all this?

Has the DOD brand been damaged?

General Thomas,

Some Americans may be asking:

Did the advantage of US air power allow the undeclared wars in Iraq or Afghanistan to be prevented, won or shut down?

US jet aircraft have been able to strike targets in what wars won by the US?

General Thomas,

Has dressing women to look like men had any positive or negative impact on recruiting?


Random thoughts:

Currently active, and retired generals living today, have been associated with what wars won by the US?


Not just MSNBC

Looks like DOD sent the script to various TV networks:

Newspeople play the role of federal public affairs staff as authorities prepare for the Super Bowl.

Remember folks, the best beers may require the least advertising.

A man on the moon in 1969 was a proud American moment. Today, the country is starving for some sort of positive cause to get behind.

Elaborate, made for TV beer ads and a US Dept. of Defense that seems to specialize in undeclared/unwon wars will have to do.

Never Forget-

The US Armed Forces were irrelevant in defending American rights and freedoms, our physical security, & The Constitution on 911.

Ditto for all other federal agencies and departments.

A special marketing tribute to a catastrophic military failure:


Schmoozy TV Freedom Nonsense – Leaving Afghanistan

Militarized Opening Day

Roaring Sports Fans – Military Jet Flyover

Military Recruiting Crisis – DOD Brand Has Been Damaged

Excuses for US Military Recruiting Crisis

Any college or pro football coach would have been fired a dozen times over

America Deserves A Military Recruiting Crisis

Growing Up In The Cold War Era

How does Uncle Sam plan to attract young people to sign up in the years ahead?

Hey Moms and Dads – Ask A Recruiter

A Military Draft?

Cultural Honesty


Candidate (Fill in last name)

Decades after the lessons of Vietnam, it feels like the people who run the Pentagon specialize in undeclared/unwon wars.

What would be your role be in all this?


Below, are some random thoughts and questions newspeople will not ask. Our questions appear in bold type.

Was It A Fake War On Terror?


Possibly of interest:

How Do The Troops Defend The Constitution?

Not asking about the oath of enlistment. Asking about what happens after the oath has been taken.

Love to see newspeople interview elected officials and let us know how sending US Troops to Syria, Lebanon, Somalia, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, Bosnia, etc., is somehow defending the constitution.
