Bush said all we need to do to get back our forces is redeploy our troops stationed in old Soviet locations to the hot zones in the Middle East and we should have enough. Regardless of what anyone says, the Soviet Union is not going to swing back up and invade Europe. They are useless sitting over there, we need them where they are needed. I'm pretty sure they know that too.

That guy is onto something.

I was drafted in the US Army in 1968 and then took an extra year to get into the MOS I wanted, as far as the Draft in todays society I would not count it out, but it would take an Act of Congress to re-instate the Draft

No. It's an election year scare tactic brought to you by the Democratic Party.

Could you explain that?

I think that the draft is good for society, a person can learn alot from military service, if they are willing, an unwilling participant will only be a thorn in the military and they will likely take away the wrong messge.

I am going to say that 90% of the people drafted are going to be unwilling.

as for The Other Guy, the believe he does not want to serve in the military. The military is not for everyone.
