National Draft a possibility in the USA November 20, 2006

Posted by Al in : fighting,politics , trackback

It’s only a matter of time, really, until a National Draft becomes a reality in the USA. Less people are joining the military, and those already in want out. This time it’s a Democrat who’s suggesting a draft, and he’s suggesting it as a method of deterring future conflicts. His argument is that if the congressmen and Senators knew that their immediate family was at risk of being called up then they would think twice about starting a war. This idea works well until you end up with government full of dry old men whose family is already probably too old to fight, and who would manage to end up as chief potato peeler even if they were drafted. Still, I think a draft is bound to happen soon in America – the reasons given for it will be the interesting part.
