I'm going to need a source that's not owned by Sun Myung Moon, the head of the Moonies, thanks.
And I wonder if the Pentagon has an interest in being completely truthful about their desertion rates?
I mean it couldn't possibly be in their interest to lowball that number, now could it? When they're facing a huge numbers crunch?
And by the way, this was in the original article:
The Pentagon says that the level of desertion is no higher than usual and denies that it is having difficulty persuading troops to fight.
So their point of view was already shared.
