"Don't Chickenhawk Me"
So says Donald Sensing, in dealing with the argument that the Army's failure to meet recruiting goals is a clear "expression of American's disenchantment with the war in Iraq." Read the whole thing.

And BlackFive points out:

While the Army is the only service suffering a serious recruiting shortage, it's 3rd Infantry Division in Iraq surpassed it's re-enlistment goal by 250%...that should tell you what the men and women that are actively engaged in the fight think of the mission in Iraq.
That's pretty powerful information—and in three stories I've heard on NPR about military recruiting shortfalls, I've not heard it mentioned even once.
