: : what does army strong mean?
: It means you've been watching an army recruitment ad on TV. This boy is strong, but someone persuades him that he wants to be "Army strong." The army in question is, of course, the U.S. Army, which has lately had difficulty recuiting enough men for its needs.
On this, the fourth anniversary of our misbegotten Iraqi adventure, it's clear that the army cannot recruit men at all. It must recruit immature boys from impoverished rural areas to become cannon fodder in the middle of a civi war which we caused but cannot stop. An appeal to their insecurities (yes, you can be Army Strong) is just the ticket.
