    A nation of 350 million shouldn't be strapped for manpower.

    Like rotating soldiers in tours of duty like we do today

    If the draft were still active this nation would not be in the sad shape it's in today because Bush could not have managed to lie us into invading Iraq.

    Suspending the draft was a bad mistake.

    Yes, it's very important that we have plenty of fodder to assure our preminence in the 21st century as we wage wars to control central asia.

    3 congressional investigations found ALL 3 times that Bush did not lie to the Nation. One of which was run by Democrats. Wanna try again dumb fuck?

    By the way, we are not having a manpower crunch. The military is at the levels approved by Congress. You want more men and women in Uniform, take it up with Congress.

    You know i have noticed but of the people wanting the draft back are old farts who are too old to be drafted so it's very easy for them to support such a move.

    I'm in my 20's in college trying to finish up when i leave I like to start my career. I don't want to be sent off to kill. I think the idea of war is horrible. Innocent people wind up getting killed at high numbers.

    I cannot imagine if the draft was still in place during these past 7 years in Iraq. People would have been sent off to fight and be killed for imaginary WMDs.

    And soldiers on the battlefield have even said they do not want people on the battlefield who don't want to be there in the first place.
