Military recruiting in the U.S.: What IS the right's problem?

It's amusing to dig into any random Bill O'Reilly tirade since, when you do, you generally find it floating on a cesspool of dishonesty, and his latest rant is no exception.

As you can read here at Think Progress, Bill O'Falafel's anger is based on recent votes for the restriction against military recruiting in some circumstances. Quoting O'Reilly:

You know, if you had been hit on 9/11 instead of New York, believe me, you would not have voted against military recruting. Yet the left-wing, selfish, Land of Oz philosophy that the media and the city politicians have embraced out there is an absolute intellectual disgrace.

You can read the same swill over at Little Green Dumbfucks™ here:

Here’s another wonderful example of how the so-called “progressive” movement supports our troops: Leave My Child Alone.

But hang on a minute. Why is the wankersphere so up in arms about schools choosing to opt out of military recruiting? According to wankers in general, military recruiting is doing just fine. In fact, it's going swimmingly, with military recruiters meeting their quotas quite nicely, thank you very much. No shortage here, no way, they say. Everything under control, couldn't be better, at least according to America's Dumbest Wanker™ who, as you might recall from back here, gullibly swallowed the line of terrific recruiting based on a journalist who subsequently had to retract that claim.

But if we take the wankers at their word and recruiting is just ever so peachy keen these days, then what exactly is their problem? So what if a few schools want to kick out recruiting? What possible difference could that make? Unless, of course, things aren't going quite as well as their rosy depictions and recruiting is getting more desperate by the day.

Could that be it? Could that possibly be it, and could it be that the residents of Wankerville have been lying to us all this time?

That is, I'm sure you can appreciate, a rhetorical question.

P.S.: Make sure you appreciate the hypocrisy of a bunch of chickenhawk, combat-avoiding, gutless members of the 101st Fighting Keyboarders, taking to task other people who don't want to go to war.

Quite the sight, isn't it?

P.P.S.: And about all of that carping from the right about how liberals don't want to fight?
