U.S. Sen. John Cornyn says the Army has appointed a brigadier general to investigate allegations of a cover-up among commanders of a recruiting battalion after a string of recruiter suicides.
One has to wonder what these recruiters know which is causing them to take their own lives.
But I would hazard a guess; this time in the history, we're the bad guys.
These pre-emptive wars for oil and oil routes (which we seem, by the way, to be losing badly) have caused hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people to get maimed, sickened, and die, in the name of a Pax Americana which is exploding in our faces like a bad trick cigar.
And the other part of the equation is, they were probably not able to come up with their quotas because of serious moral doubts about these wars, which provided another aspect of severe pressure.
