Academy Admisions down

Administrators say the drop has been caused by factors other than any chilling effect from the war in Iraq.

Somehow I don't buy that line.

Yeah, Nony, I'm with you on this. There has always been stiff competition to get into the academies. They are all excellent schools and those who are considering a career in the military would definitely go for an appointment if they can qualify. It could be that the problem is that fewer applicants can meet the admission standards, but I doubt it. Inasmuch as recruiters aren't coming close to meeting their targets, I'm not surprised that people smart enough to qualify for admission to the academies would be likewise reluctant to sign up.

They are setting the stage for the draft.
