    So if the country had a draft today to fight in the Middle East, would you go?

    Roger that. But in the late 70's, early 80's when I was in the guards? Yeah. Absolutely.

    Even if I was young enough, I'd qualify as a CO, if there was a draft.

    I was drafted for a senseless war in 1970.

    IMO, the draft should only be utilized if our country is attacked and we need to defend our borders.

    No to the draft for foreign intervention wars. .. :cool:
