    A draft should be mandatory any time we go to war .

    We wouldn’t still be in Afghan 18 years later if there was a draft .

    It’s a check n balance .

    The conclusion to this train of thought is military service as a requirement of citizenship.

    Well, of course.......why should those voting for war be held responsible? Why should they have their loved ones risk their lives. Of course.

    What if it is a small war? One that is over before the wave of conscripts can even finish training?

    Still . Even if it’s a small draft, it will make lawmakers think twice about unjust wars .

    US bailed before that . And the public pressure because of the draft really helped get us out.
