As an overweight Veteran, I must sympathise with the army and lack of Physically fit recruits.
The army sends some to so called fat Camps to lose weight, surely this could be combined within Basic Training. The audit also said that recruits are not as educated as they would like.
I must say that in the past ½ century young soldiers have been upgraded as far as education. Heck when I signed on Grade 8 was the accepted educational level. A level which actually, created fine soldiers. Many went on to increase their education through courses etc. While many remained with their enlistment education level. However they proved to be superb tradesmen and soldiers who cared about the military. Here is the story from the auditors.
Muslim BIGOTRY is rampant in western nations. I cannot emphasise enough that the Majority of Muslims are peaceful and hard workers for their families. The extremists and Jihadists are on a rampage of death and destruction.
This opinion piece written by a Toronto man is eye opening.
Compare that article with the one by Richard Dawkins an atheist and bigoted writer.
The protests and riots continue in Cairo, suicide bombings are the norm in Iraq and Afghanistan. While the terror of civil war goes on in Syria.
Thankfully in Canada peace reigns.
