Have your say! "Free Speech" or Muslim bashing? Do you support Iraq troop withdrawal? Iran invasion?

    Military analysts say the draft may be needed in a year

    If there is any draft, then those who supported the Bush regime's Iraq project, along with their families, should be the first to be sent to the frontlines. From azcentral.com: Draft may be needed in a year, military analysts warn

    With recruitment lagging and no end in sight for U.S. forces in Iraq, the "breaking point" for the nation's all-volunteer military will be mid-2006, agreed Lawrence Korb, a draft opponent and assistant defense secretary in the Reagan administration, and Phillip Carter, a conscription advocate and former Army captain.
    Strange that, the US military has recruitment problems, and yet there appear to be quite a few of the armchair generals around who support the illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts

    Ideally, one would register pro or anti war, and only the pro-war crowd would be called.

    But, hey, if it's a democracy (it's not, it's a republic) then make the war democratic in the sense that all must serve. Not only would pro-war opinions change, it would screw up the military (the Pentagon preferes an all volunteer force).

    I like the idea of registering whether you're pro or anti war. All those pro war should be eager to be sent into battle.

    Funny, there don't appear to be many of the pro war mob who've left comments to indicate they'd like to be sent into battle here.

    If they were required to do so, the bulk of them would suddenly become "pinkos"...
