Bush did something right? *shockedface*

So, another day, another questionable (but not offensive) e-mail forward from relatives:

George Carlin's Solution to Save Gasoline
Bush wants us to cut the amount of gas we use..... The best way to stop using so much gas is to deport 11 million illegal immigrants!
That would be 11 million less people using our gas. The price of gas would come down.....
Bring our troops home from Iraq to guard the Border....
When they catch an illegal immigrant crossing the border, hand him a canteen, rifle and some ammo and ship him to Iraq ... Tell him if he wants to come to America then he must serve a tour in the military....
Give him a soldier's pay while he's there and tax him on it.....
After his tour, he will be allowed to become a citizen since he defended this country.....
He will also be registered to be taxed and be a legal patriot..... .
This option will probably deter illegal immigration and provide a solution for the
troops in Iraq and the aliens trying to make a better life for themselves.. ....
If they refuse to serve, ship them to Iraq anyway, without the canteen,
rifle or ammo..... Problem solved.....
If you think this is a good solution to both the problems, forward it to your friends. ............
I just did........

Okey dokey, so, yes, an oversimplification of the US immigration problem. But it does seem fair to fast-track those willing to fight...and in fact, it's being done right now!
Active-duty servicemen and women from all branches, as well as certain
components of the National Guard and reserves, can move to the front of the line
for U.S. citizenship under an executive order that President Bush signed July 3,
2002. (Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Saturday, June 3, 2006)

This makes sense, seeing as how military service has been the basis of citizenship for centuries. (See Wikipedia, "Athenian Democracy"). It is the basis of the French Foreign Legion. It has even been considered by Canada, despite the fact that citizenship is currently a requirement of military service. ("Military considers citizenship-optional recruitment drive", Montreal Gazette, Monday, August 21, 2006)
