Military eyes 16-year-olds as ranks and candidates dwindle

Washington Times – by Ben Wolfgang

The best way to fix the U.S. armed forces’ recruiting challenges may involve dipping further into the nation’s high schools.

As the Army, Navy and other services contend with a thriving economy and a directive to expand their ranks, there is a growing debate over whether the military should consider lowering the minimum enlistment age from 17 to 16. More than a dozen countries, including the United Kingdom, already have adopted the policy. 

Critics say the idea is deeply flawed and presents a host of societal problems, but supporters argue that the Pentagon needs to think outside the box if it wants to continually overcome one of the toughest recruiting environments in decades.

Neither the military nor lawmakers have given any indication that they are entertaining the idea, but some analysts say that opening the ranks to younger Americans could provide unique benefits and may be the kind of fundamental overhaul the recruiting system needs for the 21st century.

    “… there is a growing debate over whether the military should consider lowering the minimum enlistment age from 17 to 16.”

    Practically speaking, there’s virtually NO difference between a 16 yr. old finger pulling a trigger than a 17 yr. old.

    “… but supporters argue that the Pentagon needs to think outside the box if it wants to continually overcome one of the toughest recruiting environments in decades.”

    Oh, I think they’ve already got THAT covered.

    They’ll just start conscripting all the ILLEGAL INVADERS pouring across our border.

    They’ll jump at the opportunity to ‘legally’ murder REAL Americans (or ANY foreigners, for that matter).

    why not just take preschoolers load them up with bombs and send them in?

    women: home birth…. home schooling ……eliminate the human resource pool

    There’s a very positive note here, in that they’re having trouble filling the ranks. A major sign of a population waking up.

    Some smart young ones on the horizon. Their rebellion will be against degeneracy. The youth always need something to rebel against so why not the current societal “norms?” I say all eyes on 15 to 20 year olds; the tide is turning.

    Why stop there? Why not enlist your kid into the corporate enforcement Blackwater right out of the womb? What f!@king insanity! Barely old enough to drive, can’t have sex, get married, smoke, drink, vote, etc….but sure…..they’re sure as hell capable of killing!

    This will further destroy our nations youth. And this isn’t like they’re offering ROTC style training in high school to encourage fitness or preparedness, no. They want soldiers! Children! To fight their dirty Zionist corporate wars! Get f!@ked “Murica”!

    And you just know that some flag waiving, uber patriot, masonic lodge, Trumptard moron will support this shit 100%!

    F@#k this sickens me!

    Years ago, I was told there were 2 main reasons for the borders being wide open.

    One was to allow the Fed to have an excuse to keep printing money and the other was they needed someone to fight in Americas wars.

    Seems somethings never change.

    Gee whiz… apparently the stinking crypt-jews have absolutely no problem with using U.S. troops to do their fighting for them – gonna need them 16 yr. olds…
