If you click on the two tabs (rethink and reform) you can see the two ~15min videos. Well worth a watch.

Interesting to see how blase the officers were about invading Georgia last summer, they saw it as 'no biggie'

I would've thought this recent economic crisis would've helped get Contract soldiers in, seeing as its a secure job. But apparently the crisis is threatening all that - although there will be more people considering service, its far cheaper for the state to conscript them all!
