Well, he's kind of had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

A White Man's Army?

It is always a danger when the military is of a different mindset alien to the public, in this case, much more conservative. Now, it appears things have gotten a lot worse because of recruiting shortfalls. The military is apparently turning a blind eye to recruiting neo-Nazis and white supremacists, abandoning a "zero tolerance" crackdown on racist groups instituted after the OKC bombings. Combined with the zealous evangelist intolerance of fundamentalists at the Air Force Academy, this begins to draw a frightening picture of a military trend away from core American values. That is, paradoxically, the sole political disadvantage of an all-volunteer force in a democracy.

My swastika-on-grave comment in the "Mourning in America" thread is suddenly not so far-fetched.

I wonder if they are also letting in more black militants too?

It's doubtful. Black militants (few in number) tend to be anti-establishment, for obvious reasons.
