Hypocrisy of the Chest Thumpers for War

Money quote from Joseph J. Honick in Huntington (WV) News Network:

We have learned two things just in recent days: first, the new Secretary of Defense has asserted the need to expand our armed forces by just under 100,000 in the next couple of years; second, the administration is toying with a test to see how a draft might work, while hotly denying any such idea is anywhere near reality. What we also know, however, is that those such as the College Republicans for the War and the Young Americans for Freedom, among others, are simply not crowding the recruiting stations across the United States, nor are the millions of others eligible for military service who seem willing to let those 130,000 men and women do the dirty work in Iraq.
