Here is David Hackworth with some thoughts on Jessica. Dont look to hear this anywhere in the news.

WorldNetDaily: Using Jessica Lynch

According to retired Marine Lt. Col. Roger Charles: "There's nothing they won't stoop to spin. The Army needed a female hero to boost female recruiting and PR efforts, so they went and invented one."

And that's the root of the problem. The elevation of Jessica to Joan of Arc status is to recruit more women, even though thousands of female soldiers couldn't deploy with their units to Iraq because of pregnancy, no sitters for single moms' multiple kids and other problems.

And poor Jessica Lynch has become the unwitting poster girl for an Army of One that's fast becoming an Army of Two – since apparently more than half of the women deployed to Iraq are now pregnant.

Did I hear that right? "apparently more than half of the women deployed to Iraq are now pregnant."

Woah. I think we have a problem. If that is the case, I bet you that the abortion rate will rise in the Army. Any thoughts?
