    1. So, all those people are trained, and then not used. A nice disruption to millions of lives and billions and billions of dollars wasted.

    2. It would make them just as hesitant about Just Wars too. Of course.

    We spend billions to woo people into the military. You can save that money by having a draft .

    No, he's not. Sending some one home, is not a punishment.

    Interesting. You ignored my point about Just Wars.


    Also, your pretense that PR savings will balance out training millions of people not needed, is not very convincing.

    Interesting claim.


    I think that cowardly politicians will have just as much trouble voting for a Just War, with the issue of their family being force to serve and their voters, families being forced to serve.


    And "Americans"? In a country where school administrators don't let children chant USA, because it is racist?


    You think that America will produce citizen soldiers?


    LOL!!!!

    Your Stupid example aside. Stupid anecdote side. After 9/11 thousands lined up at military recruitment stations.

    The Pentagon had no problem recruiting because people wanted to fight the terrace.
