Topic: How Close are we to a US Draft?


With 65 year old retired army reservists being called in to fill the ranks and recruiting efforts hitting new lows, just how close are we to having a draft?

Do we millitarilly need a draft but the politicians arn't willing to do it?

Dear Member,

Where did you read that 65 year old reservists are being recalled to active duty. At 62 all military retires hip-pocket orders are void. Are you sure you are not reading about a 65 year old retired volunteering for some job in Iraq?

were not going to have a draft unless the war extends into another country. As long as we stay in Iraq, there wont be a draft.

I may not be an American, but I know that if the US gets the Draft, Australia won't be too far behind. At the moment there really is no need for it, And it's not the best thing to introduce if you want to win an election.

i dont think there will be a US draft. i read somewhere that the armed forces are beginning to try new recruiting tactics and the numbers for the last few months were starting to look better. i tried to find the source but couldnt.
