Smart Enough to Recognize a Stacked Deck
The military is complaining that they are having trouble recruiting Muslims into the military. Previously, I wrote of the concerted effort that was being made to get Muslims and Arabic speakers into the military. I don't know why Muslims would not want to join the military, after all, it turned out so well for James Yee, but then again we all can't be officers, chaplins, and graduate from West Point. Somehow I feel, that if you are a Muslim in the military you can still get the same treatment,even if you are enlisted. Many reasons are given for why Muslims don't join the military in groves, but I think that the simplest is that Muslims are generally smart enough not to place themselves in a passive agressive environment where they will suspect to peers and superiors regardless of their actions.
