Not Enough Recruits? Blame It On The Rain


After failing to meet recruiting goals for two months in a row, the Marines are now scrambling for an answer to explain the shortfall besides the obvious — the two-year-old war in Iraq that has left 1,520 U.S. service members dead.

Well, according to Stars & Stripes, the Marines have found the reason why fewer recruits are signging up: the weather.

Marine Lt. Gen. Jan. C. Huly said a harsh winter kept potential recruits indoors, and thus recruiters from signing them up.

“It’s easy to say it’s the war in Iraq,” said Huly. “But I’m not so sure.”

As Milli Vanilli once sang:

Blame it on the rain that was falling, falling
Blame it on the stars that did shine at night
Whatever you do don’t put the blame on you
Blame it on the rain yeah yeah
You can blame it on the rain
Cos the rain don’t mind
And the rain don’t care
You got to blame it on something

    After reading just a few posts on this site I have come to the conclusion that the people that make this site are retards. Tell me how much LSD did your hippy parents ingest when they were pregnant for you exactly? Obvious alot. You are a bunch of low-life far left scum. You do not appreciate the sacrafice that soldiers make for you everyday. While you sit at home in front of your computer these men and women are fighting and dying for your write to be a dumbass. The least a person can do is show them some respect. Even that pig Michael Moore has shown more respect that you communist swines. If you don’t like this country or its military then get the fuck out.

    Great ad, the military is always gonna say that their numbers are due to something other than themselves though.
