The mounting unemployment rate in the United States has provided an opportunity for the Pentagon to recruit more people for its unpopular wars abroad, an analyst says.
In an interview with Press TV, investigative journalist Wayne Madsen referred to the high unemployment rate, especially in poorer states such as Alabama.
“Unemployment there is at 33 percent. It is so bad that young people graduating from high school have no other choice but to join the military,” he said.
“That is pretty good for the Pentagon and its recruiting numbers that also creates more cannon for these senseless wars that the United States has engaged in overseas,” Madsen pointed out.'
