Oh. My. Gawd.

The blogosphere, and anyone else with more than half a brain, has been saying this since 2004:
The number of US soldiers "stop-lossed," or forced to serve past their agreed terms of enlistment (from an additional few months to over a year), has reached 58,000 in the past six years, NBC reports.

"Many lawmakers and critics claim the Army has used 'stop-loss' as a back-door draft to make up for the shortage of soldiers for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan," reports Jim Miklaszewski.

So, NBC has finally noticed that "stop-loss" is really just a back-door draft. Well, THAT only took like forever. And they did it without a hint of irony.

What do you expect when all the news stenographers are graduates of the Armstrong Williams School of Propaganda?

This is precisely why our 'volunteer' forces will never recover from this bush dirty deed - would you volunteer now that you know you would be signing up for indefinite indentured servitude?
