Syria, Iran, Korea; Grenade, Wayward Plane, Recruiters, Budget

A new week; mean news this week is that our Marines are engaged in battle on the border of Syria. Meantime administration keeps dropping suggestive hints to media that our country intends action in Iran. Not much more reported on Korea who tested a nuclear missle in sea of Japan ... was it last week or 2 weeks ago?

Media reports an unexploded grenade found in vicinity of where Bush was speaking in his visit in Georgia..Russia.

White House evacuated because an errant plane managed to get into the protected air space zone of the White House. And hey, our own birds were in the air and on it this time...interceptors were in the air and guided the errant plane down...just like I've always known and expected of our ready Air Force (I'm an AF military brat).

Media reports the $82 Billion supplemental budget passed to keep our military funded thru Sept 05. Oh, and that will also provide for the 'securing our borders' emerging policies.

May 20th will be 'Stand Down' day for military recruiters as they undergo training to offset the aggressive tactics recruiters are using...or is that 'getting caught' and how not to get caught using aggressive tactics?

Parents, schools and group movements are getting vocal about military recruiters in the schools and deceptive recruiting practices. I haven't heard much mentioned in media about churches ('Men's Night Out' at Porter Baptist Church, Ky) disguising patriotic honorarium events for the troops doubling as thinly disguised recruiting endeavors, but then I've only seen this reported once so far in a blog. On another continent troop shortages are getting critical and military commanders warn of crisis in the capability of the all volunteer military to sustain, much less take on any new identified terrorist targets (countries).

There's much to talk about these days.
