Default Pentagon recruiruiting for Draft Board

The Pentagon has begun recruiting for local draft boards, dredging up painful memories of Vietnam era conscription at a time of deepening misgiving about America's occupation of Iraq.

In a notice posted on the defence department's Defend America website, Americans over the age of 18 and with no criminal record are invited to "serve your community and the nation" by volunteering for the boards, which decide which recruits should be sent to war.

it's some bull but Bush wouldn't do it until after elections, but if he gets re-elected that gives him 4 years to not worry about re-election(unless he gets rid of term limits as mentioned in another forum).

It takes an act of Congress to enact conscription (a.k.a. the draft). As this has not happened I fail to see why the Feds would be hiring (esp since funds haven't been approved by Congress for such a thing).

But if the draft is to be reenacted, I guess it's the 40 years of liberalism that have finnally led to this untenable position in our nation's military. Future Presidents who lack foregin policy ability or an experienced team and need to pick a fight to show that they can handle the military or a crisis situation won't have anybody to send! We can thank the policies of the 90s and the open-ended mini-wars that we kept getting sent to. Anybody know when we're gonna pull out of Hati or Basnia? Who will fix future foregin policy screw-ups (47 times in the 90s alone) and solve Europe's future ethnic cleansing conflicts for them?

same question can go for iraq and afghanistan as well, we go and fight all these conflicts they call them cause war is too agressive of a word cause we are there to "free the people". *shrug* If their millitary is stretched thin it's the people who run these affairs that should be responsible for getting our men out of there in a timely manner. If they need more troops at point A, then move them from point B, as a leader you have to prioritize where you need your well-trained millitary, instituting a draft just causes people to be trained in only half of what they should be, and get thrown into a war that they didn't sign on for, or know how to fight in.

You know- this world would be alot better if we just ethnically cleansed the following groups:

Americans-Africans-Haitians-Liberians-Mongolians-Afghanistanis-Iraqis-Iriquois-
Catholics-Jews-Muslims-Quakers-Stoners-Hippies-Wicans-Goths-Geeks-Porn Freaks-Midgets-Tall People- White People-Black People- Gays-Homophobes-Fat People-Skinny People-Blondes-People with Eyes-the Blind-the entire cast from Titanic-the Deaf-the MPAA-the Internet-AOL Users-Dialup Users-Those who think-Those who don't think-moralists-assholes-dead people-old people-anyone previously ethnically cleansed-people who live on volcanoes-people who live on faults-sea people-mole men-government employees-aliens-murderers-people who cna't type-people who rant for no reason- and the French. Oh yes, and if I left you out, you too must be ethnically cleansed. If I left out ANYTHING you ever come up with, that too must be cleansed!

That way- no more wars will ever be fought.

Whatever I said above may or may not be funny...
whatever is funnier!

I have been thinking of this..

And there is certainly no reason why we would need to instate the draft to finish the fight with Iraq...

What could possibly happen that the government feels the need it should be prepared.. just in case...

North Korea
we are signing an agreement with them
not a treaty.. but an agreement saying we wont attack them if they end their nuclear program.. But what happens when north korea tests a nuclear device? (they have already said they plan to)
We will demand they disarm immediately or we go in..
north korea of course would never do such thing..
North Korea has an army of 5 million
and while the US cetainly has a technological advantage.. If we suddenly needed to send a lot of troops over there... or if our 30,000 troops in south korea were wiped out by another nuclear device.. you can bet that the draft would be started...

Maybe all this will not happen.. but it is a possibility.. and i think that is what the government is laying out as something to be prepared for unless north korea suddenly has a change of heart
