The ASVAB is a test that is given to potential military enlistees. Many career counselors consider it to be one of the best occupational aptitude tests ever written. The test evaluates those taking it in various categories like Arithmetic, Assembling Objects, Auto & Shop, Electronics, Science, Mechanical Comprehension, and Language skills. Each branch of the military has a minimum score that a potential recruit must score in order to enlist. The Army’s minimum score is the lowest of all military branches at a 31.
There are too many potential Army enlistees who either can’t score a 31 or meet the basic physical requirements. So the Army has decided to begin offering remedial classes. This is a reflection on the general lowering of the quality of our Armed Forces. The left is only concerned with political reliability, and is busy cashiering everyone who shows even a remote rightward leaning.
So they are purging the military and staffing it with uneducated morons who are out of shape, have psychological problems, and will simply follow whatever orders they are given. That may include wiping out a small town that refuses to remain locked down or refuses to stop bitterly clinging to their guns, their Bibles, and their Constitution.

Dumb armies tend not to defeat vigorous insurgencies, especially when those armies are composed of dumb draftees looking for opportunities to beat feet.

I was thinking about that… A dumber army will follow orders, but can they execute them?
A decent army, let alone a good one, needs both intelligence and loyalty.

The Soviet model saw officers making decisions that were within the purview of NCOs in the US military.
Even Corps level general officers couldn’t deviate from the battle plan without permission.

And quantity has a quality all its own.

So once upon a time in the last century in the Navy I used my ASVAB test scores to get into MENSA. I was not alone many of my fellow sailors in the advanced electronic and nuke field could do the same. I dare say that’s not the case today.

I was prior service Air force and decided to join the army national guard. When I saw the recruiter he asked what mos I was interested in after telling me they could pull my old asvad test. when I said I wanted to go in the infantry he said we won’t have to pull the scores then.

We’ve tried this already. McNamara and his morons in Vietnam. What could go wrong this time?

dumb troops won’t work out like TPTB think they will.

Their own centralized control agenda begins to defeat them.

Initially I figured this post of yours Divemedic to be some sort of a joke. So I did some further inquiry and ‘gosh & golly’!

Frankly … I always figured “Failing the ASVAB” to be nigh on impossible.

Do a search of McNamara’s Folly..this is not the first time.

A lot of this has to with diversity and the desire to build an armed forces that is far less white.

my brother keeps telling me there are a lot of patriots still in the military…at least the army…it’s mostly high ranking nco’s and officers that are the short bus riding libtards…right now none of the branches can get anyone to enlist…
