Get Ready...the draft if coming! Poll included
    #3792034 - 02/17/05 08:09 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

An article by rolling stones about it: http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/sto...sion=6.0.12.857

Sigh, i am sick of this place...

And check this out too: www.enjoythedraft.com
What would you do if there was a draft?
You may choose only one
Draft dodgers are pussy, non-patriotic scum. This country is fighting for freedom for the world! I fully support a draft if neccessary!
I think people should do their patriotic duty and join if there is one.
I'm neutral about the draft.
There wont be a draft.
I dont really like the idea of the draft. I dont want to go to war.
Fuck the draft! If they can send me to war against my will, then I truly have NO rights! I'm outta here!

I used to think there would be a draft, but unless there is a huge terrorist attack sometime soon, I don't think there will be one now.

How about if war breaks out with Iran and Syria?

I still doubt they'd call the draft. But if terrorists from Iran or Syria use biological or chemical weapons on the US that results in massive waves of disease and death...then I can see one coming. I don't think that the time is "ripe" enough yet for a draft. I think if we continue as we are it will come eventually...not soon though.

Hey, I could be wrong.

If war breaks out with Iran and Syria (pay attention to the saber rattling coming from the White House - terrorism is not required), the U.S. will need a lot more troops in the mid-east. Where will these troops come from?

I was going to pick both "There won't be a draft" and "Fuck the draft!" but since I couldn't choose two, I went with the latter.

That's right, dikey looking sadists join just for the fun of working in prisons.

I really really doubt a draft. The politicians know that another draft would make the social revolt of the '60s look like kindergarten class.

The military types know that an all volunteer army is superior to a forced service army.

And if there is another terrorist attack, then we would not need a draft because the lines to sign up will be out the door and around the block.

My father, though he is against the war, said he would favor a draft because it would mean that more middle and upper class people would have to do the fighting instead of the lower class doing most of it. Nevermind the fact that poor people in the military actually choose to join, or that the middle and upper class can more easily avoid the draft.

Because if there is a draft it will force the general public to take a better look at US foreign policy.

I hope there isn't a draft, I do not like the idea of someone that doesn't want to join the military in the first place having access to military information, techniques, training, weapons, etc.
