What do you think about sending prison inmates to iraq to help fight this war. They would have to stay and fight till the end of the conflict...could be years. Here's the deal.....if you live threw the combat till the end of the war.....your a free man.

They wouldn't make it through Basic in the first place.

there's plenty of shit they could be doing stateside, like getting off their asses from watching tv and who knows what ever else things they shouldn't be having the luxury of.

lots of city's could use some cleaning and what not!

Exactly.

If they had enough self-control to be successful in the military, most of them wouldn't have ended up in prison in the first place.

(And I know there are exceptions, but I am speaking in general terms.)

How many of them would end up walking off the first chance they got, selling thier rifle on the balck market and just going home?

How many of them are dumb asses that are in the wrong place at the wrong time ? How many of them didn't check ID and believed her when she said she was 18?How many of them had the audacity to speak out about a dirty cop or political figure and suddenly had a bunch of blow in their ashtray ? How many of them had a non drinking accident and some one died?

I see it both ways , if a judge hadn't given me the option of military service or prison I would not be the person I am today. The military is what a bunch of these guys need.

Sure, drop them from 30,000 ft over the Sunni triangle and tell them that they're now free men.

"Oh and btw, without a passport, or any other ID you're not going to be able to come back into the US. Thank you for flying Con-Air, here's your complimentary turban.... Buh-bye"

Stupidest idea this week.

Put them to work back here making defense related products instead. The ones that are worth a damn, anyway.

I would put them in a Baghdad jail. Then after mortar attacks every other day, they would find that they are not the bunch of hardasses they thought they were.

But until then, put them to work making defense products.
