scare tactics 

Are we really that desparate for more "fodder" in Iraq that recruioters would lie to get people to sign up or re enlist?

"Kelly Akemann, of Elgin, said she received repeated phone calls recently from a Guard recruiter warning that her husband, a Guard veteran, could be sent to Iraq if he did not re-enlist quickly.

“I told him I thought these were scare tactics and he told me they weren’t scare tactics, these are the realities of life,” Akemann said. “I told him you don’t need to raise the blood pressure of a three-month pregnant woman. . . . Then I hung up.”
