Were it not for the international mistakes and inconsiderations by them, the Republicans, it would not be necessary and you can bet your bottom dollar that any Democrat worth his salt will resist. Seemingly supportive statements ofr the Draft by Dems should be taken in the light they are given, satirical. This is not to say that Democrats are less keen on our national defense than Republicans but only to say that Dems are more equipped to be defensive rather than offensive. And isn't this, the offensive nature of the Republican leadership, that has gotten us into this mess? Don't we have a DOD, Department of Defense, and not a Department of Offense? And hasn't it been proven over and over again in history that unbridled offense ultimately leads to total disaster? I'm putting my chips on a strong defense, and solidly against offense. But maybe our weaknesses in defense are to the expense of our otherwise strong offense. But why do we have an offensive Armed Force? I certainly didn't call for it and I don't think our reps did either. But that's another subject.
